The latest dresses of 2017 are full of fashion-forward details. These gowns are made in soft, flowing fabrics. Some feature sparkling embroidery and lace details. Other silhouettes are body-hugging and feature skin-baring cutouts. Even the most conservative bride can find a stylish dress for her wedding day.
Designer Vera Wang debuted her latest dresses for the fall season with a short film. The “Desir a l’Anglaise” celebrates the British monarchy and the aristocracy, while incorporating the dramatic look of real ball gowns. The collection includes gowns ranging in price from $2,000 to $10,000, and up to a size 28.
Another bridal trend this year is the overlay skirt. This style of wedding dress is a great option for brides who want the best of both worlds while saving money on a second dress. The Lillian West dress, for example, marries a mini dress with a full ball gown skirt. It has a halter neckline, all-over lace, and a criss-cross lace up the back. The floor-length skirt has a cathedral-length train, and a detachable sleeved skirt is available.
Other trends this year include bohemian-inspired bridal gowns. While bohemian-inspired wedding gowns have been popular over the past few seasons, the new season will feature many styles with hippie-inspired touches. Feather-embroidered lace and open-weave crochet will scream “hippie.” Metallic accents such as silver fringe and heavily beaded embroidery will also become prominent.
This season, brides aren’t afraid to bare more skin on their wedding day. Low-cut V-necklines and low-cut backlines are a popular choice. Another top bridal trend is the illusion back, which turns the back of the dress into the main focal point. The illusion back is one of the hottest new trends of 2017.
