Bridal Trends 2017

2017 started off with a fireworks, and so did the season’s bridal trends: Cue an explosive variety of styles ranging from delicate ethereal silhouette to long sleeve daydreams, androgynous jumpsuits and lace gowns. Yes, 2017 has something for every bride!

Ethereal Beauty

The classic ‘fairy-tale’ silhouette never tires, and is brilliantly interpreted this SS through finely embroidered floor-sweeping dresses and graceful, strapless jumpsuits. Snap it up in ivory silk, and you can’t go wrong.

We love Temperley London’s silk-chiffon ‘Anastasia’ gown (below, left) which features an exquisitely embroidered, crystal-embellished, tulle bodice; it’s the very definition of the ethereal bridal look. £2,495 net-a-porter.com

Adam Lippes (above, right)  provides a fabulous all-in-one alternative in the form of a strapless crepe jumpsuit with cascading asymmetric overlay and a flattering, straight-leg silhouette . £1,170 net-a-porter.com

To Sleeve or Not to Sleeve

For brides not wishing to flash their arms, the 2017 bridal trend offerings have plenty options to choose from.

Roland Mouret’s majestic, open-backed ‘Compeyson’ long-sleeved gown is achingly elegant; its cascading ruffles add a dreamy sense of fluidity and help hide any curves and swerves you’d prefer to detract from. £1,745 on net-a-porter.com.

Flowers are blooming, too, and Valentino’s long sleeved, cotton-blend guipure lace midi dress with flared skirt, is no exception. £3,365 on net-a-porter.com

Bare Shoulders

A contrast to the season’s long-sleeve trend, is that of the strapless. Bare shoulders are in! If you want to go for a look that is simple but linear, this is it.

With a flattering A-line silhouette and voluminous skirt, this wool and silk-blend sleeveless dress by Roksanda totally embraces this sensual bridal taste. £2,305 on  net-a-porter.com.

Chic and strapless, Stella McCartney achieves the perfect body-balancing contrast with her boned bodiced jumpsuit with wide-legged trousers. Ideal for straight or shapely brides. £1,655 on net-a-porter.com.
