Trends we love: V-necklines

We see so much variety in wedding dresses. While we are amazed with the overall effect in most cases, some particular features strike a chord, and become our all-time favorites. One such feature is the V-neckline.

This neckline has been the rage on runways, with variations of subtle, demure soft V’s to deep and daring low cut V-necklines. The beauty of this trend is in how versatile it is. If you aren’t comfortable with sporting a plunging V, you can still opt for a smaller dip, and still look great. Every woman can find a V-neckline that flatters her shape and emphasizes her figure.

A deep V is dramatic, and adds personality to a soft romantic gown. It shows off your bold edge, even when the dress is floral lace gown that is very feminine. A wide-cut V exposes your collar-bones, allowing you to show off your slender neck. The general shape of this pattern elongates your upper body, and makes you look longer and leaner.

V-necklines go beautifully with most gown silhouettes and sleeve patterns. They add style to a full-sleeved dress, and add a sexy and dramatic edge to a cap-sleeved gown.

We’ve seen plenty of V-necklines this year, in wedding dresses, bridesmaids dresses, mother-of-the-bride dresses and evening gowns. Let us take a look at our favorite from each category.

When choosing any of these beautiful long sleeve wedding dresses, you would have to consider two options. Either you can choose the same material for the wedding dress as for your clothes or you can choose something entirely different.
