Wedding dress trends for 2016 are refreshingly modern. There are beautiful choices to satisfy both the traditional and contemporary bride. Let us take a look at what was hot and happening in the world of bridal fashion in Spring ’16.
Daring Deep necklines
As more and more women choose to flaunt their bodies, deeper necklines are growing in style. The most popular style is the deep V that plunges to display more than a moderate dose of cleavage. Although it may not be a good idea to choose this design for a traditional wedding ceremony, it is a perfect choice for a beach wedding or a casual-style one.
Deep necklines make your upper body look more slender. They best suit hourglass figures and women who wish to look slimmer. It should be avoided by women with smaller busts.
Cap sleeves and short sleeves
Although we can expect brides to continue choosing strapless and sleeveless wedding dresses, the hottest trend this year are wedding dresses in cap sleeves and short sleeves. The illusion sleeve design with lace motifs and crystal embellishments continue to be in the limelight, but along with sheer sleeve patterns, solid designs in fabric that matches the rest of the wedding dress is also equally in demand. Many design houses including Reem Acra and Lela Rose featured short sleeve dresses in their collections.
Short sleeves look great on both slender and curvy women. It allows you to disguise flabby upper arms and is slimming when you choose a T-shirt sleeve. Cap sleeves add more bulk to your frame, and can make very thin arms look little thicker.
The Moscow Bridal Fashion week brought several dresses into focus, that featured tiered skirts on all designs ranging from ball gowns to A-line skirts and even the fit and flare silhouette. The pattern adds more volume and bounce to a wedding dress, and makes the overall wedding look interesting and princess-style.
By choosing the right position of the tiers, you can create the desired effect. When the tiers are at the end of a fit and flare skirt, you naturally look taller. When the choice is a ball gown with tiers, the effect is added volume and you look more curvy.
Beautiful back details
Embellishments on illusion backs continue to be a favorite. Deep cut back designs bordered with embellishments were another trend. Apart from that keyhole back designs and those that have lace designs on the back were featured by many designers.
These designs are a great choice for those who wouldn’t want to wear a baring neckline, but don’t mind about wearing a plunging back. It is a signature element, that will add more style to your bridal outfit. Since your guests will be viewing you from behind during the wedding ceremony, having a fantastic back design is a great way to get noticed.
