With the exit of the New York Bridal Market this past week enters the latest styles and trends we can expect to see for our next season, Spring 2017. As the runway holds inspiration for our brides, we want to be able to share with you what you didn’t see on the runway, and give you our version of relatable styles that you can find here at The Blushing Bride boutique in Frisco, Texas. So let’s get started!
Boho Influence is Alive and Well – The Boho trend continues to go strong as lace still reigns in all versions: crochet, re-embroidered/dimensional/appliques and all over. Bell sleeves are back in for bridal, slits up the front give a more casual vibe, and the sheath silhouette lends a loose fit for the casual boho feel.
Are you ready to take the PLUNGE? While low and open back designs continue to be a strong trend, a new trend stood out on the runway at New York Bridal Week, the deep plunging neckline. Whether in an illusion form, or deep “V” plunge that made you wonder if a nipple or belly button was going to pop out, one thing is certain, cleavage for bridal in definitely in style. We would agree that our take on plunging necklines are all in good taste.
Sheer is taking over Illusion – When it was once taboo and only the designers sample shown on the runway was make sheer but the Brides gown was always offered lined, it is now a reoccurring trend to keep the bodice sheer with only minimalistic discretionary lace covering those necessary body parts. From a Texas based bridal boutique perspective, I don’t see many of our brides going to this extreme of sheer with pasties look for their weddings, we will let the runway reign with this one.
Here are a few of our conservative-sheer styles.
Brides feel Pretty In Pink – Afterall we are “Blushing” Brides right? We should like a version of blush for our wedding day, makes perfect sense to us! We were long time supporters of every blush-y shade since opening our doors in 2011! And our brides often choose a version of ivory, champagne, and even blush rather than the whiter tones.
Detachable Elements & Bridal Separates – We are a huge fan of both of these trends, because why have just one look for your wedding day when you can show multiple without having to really make a wardrobe change? It is genius, really. Mix and match a top with two different separate skirts, you can one look for the ceremony and a different skirt for the party/reception. We’ve had many of our brides opt for separates and buy multiple skirts, and then they often can re wear the top for a concert or another event. No longer is your wedding gown a one time purchase and wear deal – you can get multiple wears from separates!
Bringing the drama down the isle with a dramatic overskirt and long train is a lovely idea, but would you really want to have to bustle up all that material and wear it for the 2nd part of your wedding day, during your reception? Prob not. That’s why the detachable element of an overskirt is also genius! Wear it down the isle and for your photos, and then voila, whip it off and feel light as a feather for your reception.
