Trends we love: Brides in Pants

By on February 22, 2016

There is a certain image that is associated with our idea of a bride—a beautiful woman draped in yards of fabric that flows into layers of a stunning skirt and culminates in a spectacular train. She is a vision in white as she gracefully glides down the aisle in her wedding attire, complete with veil and a scintillating tiara.

As times have changed, so have women. The modern bride doesn’t always conform to this traditional idea. Take a look at the bridal catwalks and you will see designers breaking bridal traditions with show stopping designs. More recently, we have been noticing the wedding dress facing stiff competition from modern pant suits as you can see on the 10 biggest bridal trends for spring 2016 at Fashionista.

Join us as we explore all about the types of weddings where this attire is appropriate, the body types that it is most suitable for and more.

Pant suits for the stylish bride

Every bride wants to look different and special on her wedding day. Sure, you can achieve this by choosing a different colored dress or a short hemline. But, nothing screams unique like a bridal pant suit. It allows you to fashion a unique style statement and helps you stand out as a bride who will be remembered for long because of her unusual outfit choice. A chic, well-tailored pant suit is not only stylish and modern, but practical as well. You will not feel weighed down by heavy layers of fabric and can let your smart and stunning personality shine through on your big day.

Who can carry it off?

The answer is anyone. Just like there are wedding dresses for every woman, there are bridal pant suits too. You just have to find one that suits your body type and build. Narrow pants are slimming and look great on hourglass figures and women who want to look lean. Petite and slender women can choose pants that flare at the base or those that are loose-fitting and stylish. The spotlight is on minimalist white designs as they look impeccable and show off your best features. If you rather prefer a feminine and soft look, you can choose divided skirts or pair your trousers with lace or peplum tops.

Accessories

The best accessories that add a hint of glamour to a white pant suit are colored gold. Consider pairing your outfit with a stylish hat for classic glamour. High heels and peep toe sandals work for your feet. If your wedding is in winter, pair your pant suit with a fur stole or wrap and add a blazer. Keep your accessories simple, but stylish as you do not want to divert focus from your spectacular dress choice with overbearing accessories.

When is the pant suit appropriate?

The type of pant suit you choose determines the type of wedding it is appropriate for. For a casual, outdoor affair, tactile and light breezy fabric tops would be suitable. You can wear it for a formal event also (although not for a traditional one). We suggest well-tailored wedding pant suits in elegant silk for a formal wedding.

The wedding pant suit surely isn’t for everyone. So, are you ready to experiment with this trend, or would you like to stick to the traditional wedding dress? Take a look at the various designs that we have at Best for Bride and find out whether this trend is as interesting as it sounds for yourself.

    This might be something up and coming, but I do not get the same vibe when I see a bride in pants. The dress is what the wedding is all about!

    I am still not sure about the suit idea. Looking at the image just does not do it for me, however, I can understand the need for something different these days.

    I love it! I have never really been a dress person and with my tall body, this would be just as elegant!

      Being taller than average, it does make a person look more elegant doesn’t it?
