Fashion & Accesories

Choosing a wedding dress is not an easy task. There are so many different styles available that it can be hard to focus in on just one. If you are having trouble deciding, you may want to take a look at what is currently in style. Keeping up with popular wedding dress fashion trends can help you choose a gown that not only flatters your figure but that also shows that you keep up with the latest styles. Here are some trends that you may want to consider:

1. Off-the-shoulder designs. Many of today's most popular wedding dresses feature off-the-shoulder bodices. These dresses are extremely flattering and feminine, drawing attention to the shoulders as well as to the face. Unlike some wedding dresses that are overly revealing, these dresses are sexy while still being relatively demure.

2. Black accents. When you think of wedding dresses, you probably picture white gowns paired with white or light-colored accessories. This year, however, one of the biggest trends is to add black accessories. From belts and sashes to gloves and chokers, this year's wedding runways were filled with black accents.

3. Capes. Most commonly associated with superheroes, a cape is probably the last thing that comes to mind when you think of wedding gowns. However, many of today's styles incorporate capes and capelets, adding a sense of elegance and sophistication to the look. Typically made from light, transparent fabric, the capes can range from elbow-length to floor-length, depending on the design. Some tie around the neck while others are attached directly to the shoulders of the gown.

4. Deep v-necks. Plunging necklines are definitely in for the coming season. The v-necks that showed up on this year's runways were far deeper than traditional v-necks, often plunging all the way down to the waistline. Although these necklines can be dramatic, they also can leave you a little bit overexposed if you are not careful. If you decide on a dress with a deep neckline, be sure to secure the dress in place and to wear the right undergarments with it to prevent any mishaps on your big day.

5. Pink wedding dresses. Instead of traditional white or ivory, many modern brides are opting for dresses in a pale shade of pink. Dresses in a soft blush color are universally flattering and are extremely feminine. They are a good option if you are looking for a way to make your wedding a little bit nontraditional without going overboard.

If you are having trouble deciding on a dress for your wedding, you may want to keep these wedding dress fashion trends in mind. Choosing a trendy design is a great way to make sure that you look fresh and modern on your wedding day. Of course, you should make sure that you don't just blindly follow a trend. You only get married once. Because of that, you should choose a dress that you truly love. You can think of trends as clues that you can use to guide you toward the perfect gown.
