A throwback to vintage dresses – sleeves are making a comeback!
Our opinion: while sleeves can look gorgeous, think cap-sleeve. Be careful not to date yourself, a log-sleeved lace choice can be a nasty beast with a dainty façade.
This trend is for the bolder bride who wants to make a memorable entrance. The picture below is a slit with functionality! It’s actually a hidden zipper! If you want to be a bit more modest for the ceremony or if you’d like to break it down during the reception- the control is in your hands.
Our opinion: A tasteful slit can be dramatic and fashionable. If you go for the slit, make sure you steer clear of something that may reveal or *gasp* rip mid-reception. How to avoid an embarrassing wedding wardrobe malfunction: When you try on your dress, have bridesmaids or bridal consultants make a circle around you, do a little dancing (maybe some champagne first?) and see if your slit is revealing or just right.
We aren’t talking about a tailored pants suit – this is the jumper of wedding dresses. This statement piece could actually work for a fashion-forward bride, but chances are without the confidence to pull off such a bold piece: this may fall into the regret column.
Our opinion: If you want to rock bridal pants – do it with confidence! Pair it with a fitted top and a gorgeous statement necklace for balance.
