Despite the rather common opinion that straight-cut wedding dresses are the “brainchild” of modernity, one cannot agree with this. If you look into the history of wedding fashion, you will notice that girls began to walk down the aisle in straight silhouette wedding dresses at the beginning of the 20th century. This was not at all surprising, because it was during this period that the “modern” style triumphed in art, denying all the usual foundations and conventions.
Of course, since then, wedding fashion has changed many times, but a straight wedding dress has firmly entered it, and for a decade now it has not lost its positions. Fabrics, textures, finishing methods change, but the “conva” remains the same — to emphasize with the help of a thin straight silhouette all the beauty, tenderness and youth of the bride. Let’s look at the most popular models of this season’s dresses of this cut and figure out what is best to combine them in order to appear before the groom in the most sophisticated and sophisticated way.
The most popular styles of straight wedding dresses
Long straight wedding dress
Straight long wedding dresses are a real “classic of the genre.” As a rule, these are concise models, devoid of any additional elements (with the exception of the train). Such models are best suited for girls who wear sizes XS, S or M, but for owners of curvaceous it is better to pay attention to curvy models. Although, a straight Empire style wedding dress can also suit large girls — the main thing is to choose a model with as many draperies as possible.
Straight lace wedding dress
Many brides opt for a straight wedding dress with lace. Such a move is fully justified, because lace is a very noble material that will favorably emphasize the beauty of the girl standing at the wedding altar. In combination with the cut of the wedding dress “straight silhouette”, this material will create a truly impressive image of an elegant bride. However, here you should be extremely careful and not overdo it with decorations. After all, lace is rich in patterns, and if you add intricate weaves with the help of accessories, you will get a clear bust. Pearl jewelry, discreet white gold jewelry, as well as earrings with gemstones in neutral shades are suitable for a straight lace wedding dress. There is another trick that will complete your look — choose a veil with lace trim. But just make sure that this lace is combined with the patterns on the dress, and even better it is exactly the same.
Short straight wedding dress
This trend also appeared a long time ago — for the first time, girls put on straight and short wedding dresses back in the 30s of the last century. Of course, then the length of the dresses was knee-deep, but for those times they were also considered quite short. Today, there are few dresses of this style in bridal stores, so it is better to sew them to order. A good addition to a straight short wedding dress can be satin rims instead of a veil, gloves that cover only the palm, not massive earrings made of noble materials.
Straight wedding dresses with sleeves
Often, straight wedding dresses have sleeves — with such styles, this element is much more appropriate than, for example, with lush models. Sleeves can be different — very short, three quarters or long. Most often, they are made of lace and gracefully emphasize the subtlety of the bride’s hands. Straight wedding dresses with sleeves (especially long sleeves) are ideal for weddings in autumn or winter. But if your ceremony is scheduled for a hot summer, then it is better to refuse this model, so as not to sweat again, because the wedding dress is already heavy and sewn from fabrics that do not allow air to pass through.
