09 Mar Dress Trends – New Collections Sneak Peak
I was lucky enough to attend The London Bridal Show at the weekend, where I got a sneak peak of the trends that will be coming into stores later in the year. Trends in wedding dresses can be tricky as it is such a personal choice. But there are definitely some details that are worth bearing in mind.
So long white, you’re old news. The latest trends for blush and nude tones in wedding dresses have obviously proved popular, and there is more to come on this front. Contrasting pinks and coffee colours are becoming more pronounced, and offer a real opportunity to ditch the traditional white dress. Even for the less confident bride, a subtle bit of colour can really set off the beautiful details of a dress, that may otherwise have blended in.
The glamour levels were off the charts in many collections, but in a very seductively simple way. Clean crepes and jersey fabrics that hug all the right places, with a hint (or sometimes a bucket full!) of sparkle. Although possibly a bit daunting, the trend of looking sexy and elegant on your wedding day is definitely one that’s got legs. And not just for the smaller sizes. With the support of some great under garments, put those curves on display!
Another strong take on the trend for simple styling were beautiful A-Line gowns inspired by the glamorous 50’s and 60’s. They were updated with modern twists such as bows and cutouts. But the key – they have pockets! So glam. Something for the brides to love, and mothers to hate (“take your hands out of those pockets!!).
Beading was definitely a big trend in the new collections. Adding a beautiful belt to a stunning lace gown, or some delicate back beading to a backless number was a clear winner. Tying in with the trend for simplicity, the back did the talking on many dresses with amazing details.
It’s always so exciting to experience the new trends, but this season you can really feel the synergy from the current collections. If the ideas above excite you, we’ve definite got some fabulous options in store! Check out our Pinterest page for up to date dress listings x
