S/S17 Bridal Trends

Here at Msinclair Design we love working on a wide variety of projects. A couple of our current projects are focused on bridal wear which really excites us. Bridal wear has come along way in recent years and keeps proving to be just as stylish as ready to wear. As we are coming to the end of the main bridal season what better way to get us even more inspired than to fast forward and take a peak at S/S17 bridal wear trends. So here our our top 5 trends to look out for.

3D Florals

Last seasons favorite bridal element has made a return for the next season. Romantic 3D florals dominate the catwalks while still remaining delicate by using fabrics such as silk and organza. Marchesa takes on bold 3d florals contrasting with sheer fitted embroidery whereas Randi Rahm channels our inner princess in a pretty tulle skirt and fitted bustier retaining all focus on its 3d handiwork. 

Plunging Necklines

The plunging neckline turns any dress into an elegant and sexy piece. Its a firm favorite in the bridal world with many collections featuring them. Oscar Da La Renta took a minimalist, 90’s approach while using a plunging neckline for a sleek look. While Naem Kaehn focused on femininity with nude sheer fabrics, embroidery and a more daring lower neckline.

Off the shoulder

A prominent trend in fashion at the moment, the off the shoulder trend is definitely having its moment and has inspired the bridal world. From more refined simple looks to those that are a bit more attention worthy. Sachin and Babi took on a more simplistic approach but let the off the shoulder style work its magic with bow detailing. Whereas Monique Lhuillier uses lace and embroidery for a feminine and delicate look.

Capes

They have been seen at almost every bridal collection for S/S17 with a variation of styles and lengths. From Elie Saab's ruffled lace topper featuring a contrast of sheer and opaque fabrics to Reem Acra’s long length embellished cape, there is a lot of versatility in this piece. Which highlights that they aren't going away any time soon.

Pantone Colours

Rose colored dresses were prevalent throughout a majority of collections, showcasing that white and nudes shouldn’t be the only colors considered for a classic look. Romona Keveza uses color to create an elegant printed piece while Ines Di Santo keeps it subtle with a faded rose shade for a romantic style.
