Bridal Fashion Trends for 2018
Fall and winter are beautiful seasons for weddings. There’s nothing quite like a brilliant background of fall foliage or a new blanket of pure white snow to complement a bride’s natural beauty, except perhaps a stunning gown and one-of-a-kind bridal jewelry. If you’re planning a fall or winter wedding for 2018, take your inspiration from New York City’s Bridal Fashion Week.
When less is more
The trend in recent years has been in favor of brides showing more skin. This isn’t showing any signs of slowing down, but some of the looks from the Bridal Fashion Week have proven that less skin can be more intriguing. Multiple designers showed off their long-sleeve creations, including the clean lines of Reem Acra’s deceptively simple gown. Carolina Herrera added exquisite floral embroideries to the hem of a long-sleeve gown, and Lela Rose’s spin on the trend included pearls.
When the woman wears the pants
All around the country, women have spoken up in defense of equality, and the runway is no exception. While most of the looks for this year’s fashion show were traditionally romantic, quite a few selections stood out for their departure from convention. White jumpsuits and pantsuits were out in full force, giving hope to women everywhere who simply don’t enjoy wearing dresses. Some notable examples were seen by designers Monique Lhuillier and Viktor & Rolf.
The bride wore not-quite-white
White wedding gowns aren’t likely to ever go out of style, but this classic look is getting some serious competition from soft rose and blush pink hues. The refreshing tinting is at once bold and unmistakably feminine, with flowing layers and intricate embroidery. Lazaro, Galia Lahav, and Inbal Dror all showed off their slightly shaded gowns on NYC’s runways.
The seamless marriage of classic and trendy
Despite these exciting emerging trends in bridal fashion, many soon-to-be brides are still opting for a more traditional element: The classic, sophisticated pair of diamond earrings. Increasingly, brides are choosing to design their own custom diamond earrings. This lets them flawlessly match the earrings to suit the dress. Some of the most popular diamond earrings are:
- Diamond circle earrings
- Baguette diamond halo earrings
- Princess-cut hoop diamond earrings
- Baguette diamond leverback earrings
And of course, diamond drop earrings and diamond stud earrings remain as popular as ever. Plus, unlike the dress, brides can wear their favorite diamond earrings whenever they wish! All of these classic and trending looks in bridal jewelry are available from F. Silverman Jewelers in Bergen County, New Jersey.
