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!
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
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.
