On your wedding day, every second you will be surrounded by attention. So, you need to look irresistible! We have collected for you 15 hot trends in wedding fashion, makeup and hairstyles — you just have to choose which ones will decorate you on such an important day.
By the way, we wrote a long article with an analysis of the types of figures and the styles of dresses suitable for them. If you haven’t read it yet, be sure to check it out!
Lush dresses again appeared on the catwalks. If you have been dreaming about the image of a princess since childhood, this is your chance to get that very dress, because designers offer many options. We advise you to pay attention to the details: for example, mesh sleeves with embroidery. Or act from the opposite: a minimalist puffy dress will look chic, the main thing is to choose the right fabric.
The dress does not have to look heavy: flying airy skirts are also in trend.
Splendor is welcomed not only in skirts: voluminous transparent sleeves also keep in trend. By the way, let’s talk about them in a little more detail.
Puffy sleeves are still a hot trend, but in 2020, designers have added an alternative to it. One-shoulder wedding dresses are also in fashion now. It can be either a large strap, or a full-fledged, long and brightly decorated sleeve.
If your body type is an “inverted triangle”, then be careful: open shoulders with voluminous sleeves (even if it is one) will break the harmony of the silhouette. It is better to choose dresses with a full skirt or an A‑line silhouette to balance the figure. For “pears” this is a great option that will add volume and weight to the top: with this help you can even put on a capricious dress of the “fish” style.
Here they are, the saviors of brides who did not want to spoil their hair with a veil — capes. They are really just capes, but you should know the official name to explain your desires in the bridal salon.
Previously, capes were used only in winter to keep warm, but now summer lightweight models made of flying fabrics are relevant. Extremely long, to the elbow, below the waist — you have a huge choice, so we will give a little advice so that you do not get confused in the variety.
Of course, you need to build on the style of the dress. A long, tight cape to the floor (or even longer) will go well with a minimalist dress with a straight cut. Such an image will look luxurious, but at the same time concise. Waist-length capes are perfect for dresses with a full skirt or an A‑line with a bustier bodice — this way you will cover your arms and add volume to the top, balancing your figure. To put it briefly: the more magnificent the dress, the shorter the cape. You can experiment with an asymmetrical cape.
Pay attention to denser capes too: they will help to create an elegant understated look worthy of Buckingham Palace. With such a minimalist design, large, “rich” jewelry will look great.
Modesty has long ceased to be the main attribute of the bride, and designers confirm this with frank models. On a day like this, it’s better to be yourself, so if hiding behind deaf long skirts is not your habit, then you don’t need to force yourself. Deep neckline, high neckline, sequins and feathers — why not? Balance a daring dress with natural and casual hair and makeup, and get ready to catch your fiancé’s admiring gaze.
If you do not want to miss all the dances in fear of knocking guests down with a crinoline, the “mini” length is in a hurry to help!
Do not be afraid that you will get lost among the guests in the photo due to the lack of the notorious long white dress: indicate in the invitations that the white color of the outfits will be inappropriate. In addition, if you are wearing a veil and with a bouquet, you are unlikely to be recognized as a bride!
Overalls and trousers
Don’t want to sacrifice comfort for a dress? The stylists have your full support! Models of trouser suits and jumpsuits for brides are increasingly appearing at bridal fashion shows. Just do not think that you will look too simple or too businesslike: you can choose from puffy trains imitating a skirt and richly decorated sleeves. An excellent choice for bold and free from prejudice brides.
Floral embroidery. A touching girlish trend that will add tenderness to your look. By the way, this is a great decor option if you looked at translucent dresses with a mesh, but were afraid to look too frank.
If you chose Boho, Vintage or Rustic style for your wedding, you definitely need to look at these dresses. They seem to be created specifically for these styles.
Charming trend: last year, beads were used on the sleeves, and now they have taken over the entire dress and even the veil! If you chose a dress with such decor, it is better to refuse large pearl jewelry, otherwise there will be a bust. But small stud earrings with pearls will look quite appropriate.
Rhinestones and shimmer are no longer bad manners. Now you can safely add them as small decorative elements, or choose a brilliant total bow! Arm yourself with a highlighter and shine brighter on your day.
Makeup and hairstyles
Taking off the masks
A dense tone that creates the effect of a “porcelain doll” is no longer relevant. Designers and makeup artists are inspired by real skin with its flaws and features. Has the sun given you freckles? Great, don’t hide it behind a thick layer of powder, because it is an integral part of you! Natural blush, moles, wrinkles in the corners of the eyes — all these details make the bride real, and the pictures touching.
Makeup artists advise using CC creams, which will only slightly even out skin tone and add radiance. And Chanfashion adds: pay more attention to skin care for 3–4 months before the wedding. Procedures at the beautician, a balanced diet and enough water will allow you to hide the tonal foundation in a distant drawer and shine naturally on your big day.
Let’s add pink
Delicate (and sometimes very bright!) make-up in pink tones is still at its peak. Such shadows are suitable for any eye color, the main thing is to choose the right shade: pale pink shadows are suitable for brown-eyed eyes, warm peach ones for green eyes, and cold shades of pink for blue-eyed ones.
Makeup with a “wet” effect in pink will look interesting.
Simplicity and carelessness
Stylists do not recommend building arks and three-story houses on the head (maybe they are just tired of spending so much time on hairstyles?). Sloppy buns with a few loose strands are in fashion, which can be twisted a little with an iron. Note that “sloppy” does not mean “fall apart at the first dance.” Ask the master to firmly fix the hairstyle with invisibility, but also not to overdo it with varnish so that the curls do not look glued together.
Another styling option for a wedding is a brush, smooth or with a slight twist. Definitely consider this option if you want to use some kind of hair ornaments: a tiara, flowers or massive barrettes. With neatly styled hair, such accessories will not fight for attention, but on the contrary, they will perfectly complement each other.
Pretentiousness from hairstyles turned into accessories for them. The most fashionable trend of the season is wide rich headbands. Large pearls, bright stones imitating precious ones, and fabrics will now replace tiaras, which no longer look so trendy.
The trend for naturalness is supported by flowers in the hair. It is not necessary to use a whole wreath: several flowers look much more elegant or one large one woven into the hair.
And this is a real trend-chameleon that will suit any style of wedding. For a more classic and formal wedding, voluminous French braids are chic. For loose and relaxed styles like boho and rustic, loose hair with a few small braids will do. By the way, you can decorate them with colored threads and ribbons or feathers.
A braid-wreath is also very relevant. The main thing is to ask the master to make it voluminous and a little careless.
In 2020, not only naturalness is popular, but also its complete antipode. Let’s see what bright and unusual solutions stylists advise to try this season.
Attention to the lips
Classic nude lipsticks are no longer a sentence for brides. Do you love dark plum shades? Or are you a fan of bright coral lips? Stylists give the green light to any color experiments. And if you chose an unusual wedding style, such as pin-up or dramatic, then denying yourself a bright make-up is just a crime!
But we must warn you: red and dark shades of lipstick must be chosen carefully, because they can make your teeth look very old or make your teeth look yellower than they really are. Experiment with your make-up artist to find the perfect shade for your makeup test.
Do not forget to put lipstick in your purse so that you can touch it up periodically during the holiday. Smeared nude lipstick does not attract as much attention as bright. Better yet, use a tint. It will definitely remain on your lips until the end of the feast and will not be smeared due to drinks and food.
Shine bright like a diamond
Rihanna doesn’t give bad advice, so listen and obey. If a couple of years ago stylists grimaced at the mention of rhinestones, now they are used just everywhere, and we are not only talking about dresses. You can stick a few rhinestones on your whiskey or ask the master to paint freckles with sparkles. In the style of Boho, such an experiment will look very organic.
If you are not a supporter of such outrageous wedding look, we advise you a softer and more traditional option — a highlighter. Given the trends of 2020, it will be difficult to overdo it! So feel free to use it to enhance the radiance of your skin.
The era of perfect smokey eyes from Instagram has passed, now simple casual eye makeup using shadows of the same color is relevant. Preferably as bright as possible! Blue, hot pink, yellow and even red are increasingly appearing in make-up on the catwalks, and bridal fashion does not stand aside. Colored arrows did not go overboard, but only became larger and thicker. For bright summer weddings — just a must have.
