10 of the Newest Trends from the SS24 Bridal Fashion Week
Take a peek at what the new SS24 season has brought to the bridal fashion world…
With the new season come fresh and beautiful trends to inspire your wedding day look, and we’ve gathered a few of our favourite styles directly from the latest catwalks. From reinvented classics to original looks, we have something for every kind of bride! With the SS24 season, you are not short of romantic dresses, floral details and sexy features to make your look stand out on your very special occasion. From ethereal pieces to figure-hugging gowns, this year, the designers have outdone themselves by offering a modern take on tradition, making sure all brides find their unique style in their collections.
For brides who want to make an entrance on their special day, forget your traditional ballgown and opt for cascading layers of tulle or organza with a beautiful ruffled gown. The new collections have released beautiful, frilly styles that convey the perfect amount of drama to leave everyone speechless. When it comes to the amount of volume, you can decide what’s more suited to your style. You can opt for a full flouncy skirt for a dreamy, ethereal look or a sprinkling of ruffle details great for a bohemian-style wedding. Whichever style you decide on, a ruffled gown is a playful look for any type of silhouette.
A bit unsure whether to show off your neckline completely? This season, the designers have thought about you and created designs with delicate lace covering the decolletage. This way, you can expose your neckline, but in a modest way. This elegant lace detailing looks glamorous on square necklines and ultra-romantic when paired with a sweetheart design. With master skills, designers have created intricate necklines for a show-stopping look worthy of the red carpet.
The Cold Shoulder
Another sophisticated way to showcase your neck and shoulders is via a cold shoulder look. An off-the-shoulder is universally flattering and offers hints of sexiness, allowing you to showcase your decolletage in addition to your precious jewels. This style of neckline suits all kinds of dresses, from romantic ballgowns to figure-hugging garments, so you have no problems pairing it with your personal style. Sleeves can be attached or removable, leaving you with plenty of choices on your wedding day for a possible second look.
Back in fashion, a halter neckline is a dazzling yet relaxed choice. Without a doubt, it’s one of the sleekest styles we are seeing across the catwalks. Perfect for an outdoor event when paired with a sleeveless look, and to take it up a notch, a halter neckline with an open back will not disappoint. This versatile neckline looks just as charming on short dresses, jumpsuits and separates. If you opt for a suit, a halter neckline top will look flawless also on any other special occasion.
The Golden Age
In the last collections, we’ve seen a rise in the use of colour throughout bridal fashion. Whether it’s pastel hues or bold tones, designers have taken bridalwear to the next level. Because brides are so golden and precious, designers have made them feel extra special with a selection of bright, gold-hued dresses for a glittering waltz down the aisle. For all untraditional brides, this is your season, as you can pick from an array of colours for a bridal look that will stand the test of time.
Together with timeless classic gowns, the new season SS24 collections have blessed us with more daring designs for brides searching for a more alluring style on their special day. High-slits were very in last season, and while we see plenty in the new collections, we have also noticed an increase in backless designs for a glamorous open-back look you can add to with jewellery pieces. Whether you have a tattoo to flaunt or prefer an open-back dress for your photo album, the latest bridal collections have got you covered.
Mini gowns have been a favourite in the past few years, and we can’t see this changing anytime soon. The short dress is a fashionable option for micro weddings, city registry ceremonies, intimate affairs, pre-wedding parties and evening celebrations! Not only can you wear a mini dress on your wedding day, but you can keep it for many years to come for other life moments. Any pretty chic dress is the perfect go-to for your second look. There’s no better feeling than dancing the night away in your favourite short dress - just look at Sofia Richie!
Brides are opting for more adaptable styles, and designers are making sure the options are limitless. Detachable capes, sleeves and overskirts are great versatile pieces that you can play around with based on the season and your venue choice. There’s also an array of veils, jackets and gloves making sway in the bridal world. These are very functional accessories that can be easily removed to create different looks. Separates are now a bridal must-have which will be sticking around for some time.
Clean, classic and chic, the bridal suit has taken the wedding world by storm and is not going anywhere anytime soon. Perfect for the modern bride, and the ideal look for a contemporary wedding, especially for a city escape, suits are a sleek formula we’ll see much more of. From statement tuxedos to oversized blazers and sparkly blouses, the options are endless when it comes to wearing trousers down the aisle.
