Trends: Haute Off the Runway
Strike a pose in one of our favorite 2014 styles from New York Bridal Week
No need to buy jewelry for the big day when your dress features built-in bling. Shine bright in (clockwise from left) Romona Keveza’s intricate lace collar, Hayley Paige’s bejeweled bolero, or Amsale’s glittering halter-neck. Check out styles from Hayley Paige at Laineemeg Bridal; Nordstrom’s Wedding Suite features Amsale.
An alternative to strapless: chic shoulder accents. We love Anna Maier Ulla-Maija’s lace portrait-collar jacket, Delphine Manivet’s whimsical ruffled sleeves, and Lela Rose’s off-the-shoulder illusion bodice. Lela Rose styles are available at Nordstrom’s Wedding Suite, and Luly Yang Couture stocks lovely shrugs that mimic a long-sleeve look.
Sherbet-like tones of violet, blue, and apricot are a modern gal’s alternatives to traditional white and ivory. Color your day with Vera Wang’s vibrant petal-inspired dress, Lazaro’s tulle high-low ball gown, or Jenny Packham’s off-the-shoulder tea-length style. Find Vera Wang at Marcella’s La Boutique and Jenny Packham at The Dress Theory.
Dressing for the big day doesn’t have to involve a dress. Consider Angel Sanchez’s tank and ball gown skirt, Houghton’s crop-top look, or Theia’s silky sweater-and-pants combo. Cutting-edge Houghton style is on offer at the Dress Theory; don’t miss the bridal skirt from Watters and the Rue De Seine two-piece in our fashion feature.
