Fashion Friday: 5 Supremely Flattering Necklines
Posted by Sarah Zlotnick. Filed under Bridal Fashion, Bridal Market Spring 2014, Wedding Dress

After polling on Facebook and Twitter, the answer is clear: when it comes to wedding gowns, PW brides place more emphasis on the neckline than the skirt. It makes sense, too—while we’re all about a gorgeous gown, at the end of the day it’s more important that you look gorgeous in it! And the best way to do that is with pretty details up top that draw attention to your face. Here, we’ve rounded up 5 of the most flattering necklines we know, all with examples from the latest runway collections. Enjoy!

1. High Neck Halter

Sophisticated brides, take note—high neck halters are an elegant way way to highlight sculpted shoulders and firm upper arms. The gathering of fabric at the neck also leads people’s eyes straight to your smile. Gowns (left to right): Lazaro and Temperely London.

2. Deep V 

The plunging V is a great look for lither ladies who want to show off great posture and beautiful clavicle bones. We love this sexy statement for smaller-chested brides—just remember the double-sided tape! Or opt for a gown with mesh netting to hold everything in place, like the Berta gown on the right. Gowns: Anne Barge and Berta.

3. Illusion V

The Illusion V is a beautiful compromise for brides who want the support of straps but the bareness of a bustier/sweetheart gown.  Lace, appliques, and other details draw eyes upwards, while the plunge discretely creates a bit of cleavage. Gowns: Christos and Tara Keely. Read the rest of this entry »

Trend Snippet: Tiered + Trimmed
Posted by Sarah Zlotnick. Filed under Bridal Fashion, Bridal Market Spring 2014

Statement skirts are one of our favorite ways to turn heads down the aisle. And while we’re all for intricate layers of ruching and tulle (see here, here, and here), there is definitely something to be said for bigger, bolder, and simpler. One of the most creative twists on the big ball gown we saw on Spring runways was the wide panel tier. Skirt layers got larger and longer, and we think the look is just perfect for the bride who wants to look a little playful on her big day. What’s your take on the style? Let us know in the comments!

Look to Love: The Sheer Corset
Posted by Sarah Zlotnick. Filed under Bridal Fashion, Bridal Market Spring 2014

Call it the Pnina Tornai effect—corsets are coming up sheer and sexy for Spring! We saw plenty of exposed boning on the runway this season, and we think the look is great for the bride who wants to show off her hard-earned wedding figure. More trends we noticed: draped backs, illusion necklines, modern peplums, and the Carrie Bradshaw flower corsage.
