Back to black

Black and white is a timeless pairing, and it has never looked so chic! Whether you add a touch of black to your white dress with accessories or details as seen at Vera Wang and Marchesa, or dare to wear the color from head to toe à la Reem Acra, this trend will make you the coolest bride of the year.

It’s in the details

Pearls, embroidery, sequins… Play the glamorous card to walk down the aisle. Go for a classic cut and let the details do the talking. More is more!

Vintage lace

Nothing says ‘romance’ like lace, and designers have fallen for vintage, boho-chic style that will be perfect for Summer and Fall weddings. Costalleros and Naeem Khan went for long sleeves, while Romona Keveza featured a fuller skirt and halter cut.

She wears the pants

Not fond of the classic wedding dress? Pants are everywhere this season; Carolina Herrera has paired them with a sheer blouse, Lela Rose went for a peplum top, and Viktor & Rolf played with asymmetry.

Pump up the volume!

Go big or go home! A tulle skirt, puffy sleeves, dramatic ruffles… Dare to play with shape and volume.
