New York Bridal Week is a splendor event showcasing the most beautiful and heavenly gowns for future brides. Designers this seasons have not failed to curate stunning collections to make any woman feel like royalty. Classic bell-skirts and intricate lace looks ravishing as per, but we also adore those who dared with less traditional styles for a new age of feminine fashion. For those in the midst of wedding plans, the current bridal gown trends will be priority when choosing ‘the one’, so we have pulled together the favoured styles of 2018 bridal fashion. Simply elegant or adorned in rich embroidery, lace and beading, discover gorgeous pieces straight from the New York runway, sure to make you feel like a modern-day princess.
To introduce the royal touch, nearly all designers at Bridal Week were inspired by the cape this year. The delicate and dainty polka dot sheer capelet from Monique Lhuillier’s collection is soft and subtle, also the strong power-dress cape looked stunning in Vera Wang’s showroom. Cropped or full-length they are a gentle statement to wear down the catwalk… or aisle.
Something new, something borrowed and something blue! For weddings on a fresh summer day look no further than a delicate pale blue. The pastel palette that adorned some of the dresses in New York, were trimmed with pearlescent beading and embroidery, like the incredible finale design from Reem Acra, whilst other designers used the shade as an accent, for a truly elegant finish.
Something a little different? A pair of sleek and chic trousers are the new looks for the modern day bride. Take your pick of style, from wide leg pants from Houghton and Jenny Packman, which sway with every step, or lovingly tailored jumpsuits like the highly embellished Naeem Khan design for a truly unique outfit. Finally, for a classic touch, opt for pant pair with a train.
Reflecting the on-trend look, shoulders bared-all on the catwalk this last week. From sweetheart necklines to off the shoulder cuts, they encapsulate the current street fashion with elegance and opulence. Scallop lace trims the collar on fairy-tale dresses from Sachin & Babi and Theia introduce a contemporary edge to her minimalist designs with cold-shoulder cuts.
