This is the time of year when we start to look ahead and see what’s in store for us over the next 12 months. It’s that time of year when we look forward to the future and what lies ahead. We’re in for a treat when it comes to wedding gowns!
You may remember that we went to New York for Bridal Fashion Week in October, watching runway shows and meeting with designers to see their new collections.
In the coming weeks and months, we will be taking a closer, more in-depth look at some of the most beautiful collections and the most exciting fashion trends that we found while there.
We thought we’d start 2016 off with a look at the styles that brides will be wearing this year and probably in 2016. The brides of 2016 will be in awe.
Who better to help us understand the latest wedding dress trends of 2016 than a bridal style expert we met in NYC?
Annie Cavallo loves weddings, is a fashion writer, and is an avid stylist. She knows what trends will be popular with brides and which are only for the runway.
In the past few years, we have seen crop tops and long sleeves. But 2016 will be more daring and dreamy.
The most fashionable (but also the most affordable) dresses! Take a look at the latest wedding dress styles.
The wedding gowns of today are bursting with color and patterns that remind us of our favorite flowers.
Florals are not just for the aisle anymore. They can be embroidered, hand-painted, or even a combination of both.
The next veil 2.0. Designers reinvent tradition with wearable veils or “body veils” that attach to your gown. They are worn as an accented cloak rather than as a headpiece.
With the sheer illusions floating all around the gown, the added layer adds instant romance to the overall look.
In 2016, the most stylish way to enter your wedding reception is still in pantsuits.
I predict that designers will be more creative in creating two looks from one piece of clothing.
Who wouldn’t like to be a Princess on their Wedding Day? They are an inspiration to celebrities.
Both Allison Williams and Nicky Hilton took inspiration from royalty to create their wedding looks. Allison Williams wanted Kate Middleton’s conservative sheer neckline, while Nicky Hilton channeled her inner princess, Grace Kelly.
Sheers & Lace
Dresses for 2016 will feature lace necklines, sheer layers, and gauzy layered.
If bridal fashion is influenced by ready-to-wear collections this year, the Spring collections will be a subtle lingerie look, mixing satin and lace trims with thin, strappy shoulder straps.
No matter what style you choose, the shoulder is going to be a big Spring trend.
It’s so attractive to play up your shoulders. This can make a woman look sexier.
