Spring 2018 Bridal Fashion Week

Spring 2018 Bridal Fashion Week is finally here, & the dresses are stunning. The fashion team hit the ground running to bring you the latest trends straight from the runways. From statement bows & pretty shades of blue to gothic-inspired black touches, we’ve got all the hottest wedding dress trends you need to know.

 

It’s established: Black is the new white. From sophisticated black bows that channeled Audrey Hepburn to over-the-top black ostrich feather ball gown skirts, black was everywhere on the Bridal Fashion Week runways. If you’re attending to make a serious statement or just add a touch of edginess to your wedding day look, this is the trend for you.

Bring the drama with this frilly, ultra-feminine detail. Allover ruffles add dimension to a slim silhouette, while a full skirt of cascading ruffles (paired with a high-low hemline if you’re brave) is equal parts whimsical and fashion forward.

We love this look straight out of the Elizabethan era for two reasons: Corsets accentuate the narrowest part of your body, & sheer ones with exposed boning add some (tasteful) sex appeal. Like a corset top with a ball gown skirt for a royal look, or keep it slinky and lingerie-inspired with a curve-skimming silhouette.

 

Sultry silhouettes give this heirloom touch a modern upgrade. Opulent head-to-toe pearls are worthy of a red carpet affair, while pearl-embellished bodices (and chokers, for good measure) create a unique texture on streamlined frocks.

Designers put a fresh twist on the “something blue” tradition this season. Pale-cornflower-blue underlays with white border embellishments are ideal for a romantic garden wedding, while striking powder-blue ball gowns fit a royal affair.

 

You can’t go wrong with a timeless gown—after all, photos do last forever. Structured silhouettes & classic necklines (think: boatneck and Bardot) made a serious comeback. A-line & mermaid-style grow in heavy satins, and silk faille was a staple in every collection, paired with retro-inspired accessories.

 

Make a ladylike statement with this refined accessory. Sheer, barely their gloves were go-to for fashion-forward designers. Whether you go with a wrist- or elbow-length style, this pretty detail adds extra polish to any ensemble.

 

Designers went all in with shimmer. Allover silver geometric beading gave gowns a vintage-inspired vibe, while sheaths covered in tonal beading were a more subtle take on this über-glam trend.

Bows have been hot for a few seasons, but this ultra-classic detail isn’t going anywhere. This season, the bows were higher and better than ever. Designers sent tailored silhouettes adorned with bold, statement bows down the runway.
