AW17 Bridal Trends

Neutral tones, lace, sequins and androgynous looks all get the thumbs up this seasons, as we take a look at the best AW17 bridal trends.

Silks & Satins

Whipering with wintry savoir-faire, sleek, figure hugging silks and satins bring sophisticated sex appeal in neutral tones. Halfpenny London captures this beautifully in its Kiki Kimono top worn over Iris Slip satin (pictured below left) and so too, does in Dennis Basso in his silky hand-embroidered woven cream gown.

Luxe in Lace

The combination of elegant long sleeves and fine lace is  eloquently showcased in Tadashi Shoji’s newly launched bridal range – we particularly love the Floretta Gown ($898.00), with sheer illusion sweetheart neckline and symmetrical lace panels, the cream Lace Burn Out Maxi Dress (£250) by ASOS, which has a fabulous 1950s vintage flavour,  and crepe and embroidered mermaid Madison tulle dress from newcomer Rime Arodaky’s Rock You Baby collection.

Décolletage Androgyny

Décolletage minimalism brings sensuality to a more androgynous look – like House of Ollichon’s flattering Kay jumpsuit (£760), Givenchy’s sharply cut white blazer (£,1520) and Zara’s more affordable Tuxedo blazer (£59.99 ).

Or Savannah Miller’s ivory jumpsuit (Willow, £2,400) or bridal suit separates (Diana, £1,299).

Style up by accessorising with a pocket square, braces or bobby pins. Liberty London offers a great variety of fashionable options, like this red blossom bobby pin (£175) and brilliant blue silk pocket square (£50).

Sequins and Feathering

It may not snow this Christmas, but that doesn’t mean you can’t embrace the icy winter magic – and how better to do so than with sequins and feathers. Up the glam stakes in Halfpenny London’s gorgeous Laura drape top paired with its richly feathered Maribou Skirt and Sottero and Midgley’s shimmering Felicia dress with high waist and halterneck.

Ink Up

Complete your look with ink: and if you don’t fancy a special trip to your local tattooist, opt for some temporary tattoos (£5.50 and £2.07 respectively, from Etsy). Go #TeamBride!
