Bridal Fashion Week just happened about a month ago, and the trends on the runway for 2024 were some fun and massive styles to look forward to, if you’re a late 2024 or 2025 bride. Here are 8 of the biggest trends to look out for this coming year.
Drop Waist Gowns
Drop waist silhouettes took a break from the spotlight within bridal trends for a couple of years, but this Bridal Fashion Week has proven that they are back ready to shine. With the perfect compromise of showing off the curves, while still having that princess feeling, drop waist gowns are a great way to go. This gown from Bridal Collective is a great example of how a drop waist can be whimsical and a tad sexy.
Lace necklines are a perfect way to bring the eye up to your neck and face, and really help to highlight you. This coming season they are gaining popularity by designers utilizing the minimalistic look with a lace accent as shown here on this gown by Eddy K.
We all new that structured and simple pieces have been in the forefront of social media and designers marketing strategies for a while, but they are about to pick up momentum because of their classic and elegant look with a touch of modernism. This ballgown by Allure Bridals has a super flattering ruched waistline, and pleating around the slit so it stays structured and flawless.
Thinner straps are a perfect way to not overpower ones frame, especially if their torso is a little more petite. They help highlight the decolletage area, and are a delicate way to hold the dress on the body. This Allure Bridals gown is a prime example of how the straps help to lower the neckline so there is less fabric toward the face.
Going hand in hand with structured ballgowns, is also tailored construction with its clean lines and sharp construction details as demonstrated in this Eva Lendel dress with the clean overskirt and off the shoulder neckline. The seaming is perfect with showing off the waistline and super flattering and elegant.
The most romantic and whimsical look is primarily done by adding floral appliques to tulle or organza. When there is a little more separation in the skirt without being overwhelmed by lace, the floral appliques will easily shine as shown on this Allure Bridals gown. Keep an eye out for this trend heading into 2024!
One- Shoulder Gowns
The idea of an A-symmetric modern gown has been trending for years, but this coming season it’s being brought to a new level by stepping up the one shoulder look. This gown that’s available in store by Amy and Eve is a prime example of how to elevate the one shoulder look with gloves and a huge gorgeous bow to dress it up.
Inspired by the 80’s
The 80’s were a famous time for bridal fashion. Huge sleeves, big bows, and big skirts were a sign of the time. This coming season, designers are giving a nod to the 80’s look by adding a modern twist to the classic styles. As shown on this Eva Lendel gown, poofy sleeves and a big bow on a Mikado fabric really add an extra something to a super elegant look.
