Feminine, Fierce, and Fashion-Forward — NYBFW Trend Report
The trends that were revealed during New York bridal fashion week were all about classic, feminine details. “It is on trend to be classic…and I could not be happier!” Beth exclaims. Some of the most predominant trends to grace the runways…
Lady-like feminine details
There were sweet, feminine details in almost every line. Lace, appliqués, swiss dot, and soft tulle were constants on the runway. It is hip to be sweet for Spring 2018!
I am such a sucker for a bow, so I was giddy to see them on many runways. To me, bows never went out of style! They were present on the front of gowns, on the back of gowns, on the shoulder, and even in the hair!
Pearls, a bridal staple as far as I am concerned, are the detail of the moment. They were encrusted on gowns and draped in dramatic strands across the models necks and shoulders.
Black accents were featured in many collections, even in those of the most classic designers. Black adds a touch of drama and certainly can create amazing waist definition. I love the idea of adding a touch of black in an accessory for your evening reception!
The flirty trend also showed up by way of feathers! They were featured as accessories, but also incorporated into several gowns. It was a dramatic touch on the runways and I think is fabulous for an avant garde bride or for a reception look!
The hot neckline of the season is off the shoulder. We are seeing this in ready to wear and it has made its way into bridal as well. This is a wonderful alternative to strapless, but it still allows you to show your décolletage.
One of the most exciting trends was pants! These were reflected in jumpsuits and adorable pant ensembles. This is trend provides amazing options for same sex couples as well as for all of the brides wedding related events.
