- Tell us in the comments.
No. 5—Illusion Lace
This was EVERYWHERE! We heard someone else call it "naked lace." From high necks and long-sleeves to plunging V fronts and backs, illusion lace put a sexy spin on a wide variety of wedding gown silhouettes. Romona Keveza did it best. You could hardly tell it was there!
No. 6—Geometric Details
Linear beading…chevron patterns...horizontal and vertical pleats…structure…clean lines—we're head over heels for this trend. I particularly loved the geometric beading I saw (like the Xs and Os pattern on the Modern Trousseau gown pictured below). This trend is perfect for an individualistic, fashion-forward bride.
No. 7—Short Dresses
This isn't anything new, but I was surprised by the sheer number of little white dresses designers added to their collections this season (it was the fall 2015 collection, after all). It just goes to show the "reception dress" / "wardrobe change" trend is alive and well. And we're so glad!
No. 8—Twinkling Gowns
This trend was mesmerizing! The use of iridescent sequins and beads turned many gowns we saw into glamorous little light shows on the runway. I can only imagine the impact of a twinkling gown coming down the aisle towards the groom. You'll have to look closely to see this subtle but impactful detail.
