Styles of wedding dresses
It is with classic dresses that most brides begin to choose an outfit for themselves for the most important event in their lives. After all, they are always fashionable and relevant.
One of the main features of a classic wedding dress is a bodice with a corset, decorated with a variety of elements. The corset can exist separately from the bottom of the dress or be a single whole.
As for the skirt, the classic version does not provide for excessive splendor. Layering or a crinoline with multiple rings may be present.
A long, sophisticated and elegant dress is a classic wedding fashion. Although now you can find many classic models in a shortened version, while their length should be below the knees.
Short models became popular during women’s emancipation, and therefore are considered some deviation from the standards of the classics, but still do not go beyond what is permitted. But already short dresses or skirts in the style of a ballerina cannot be attributed to the classics for such serious deviations.
Another feature characteristic of the classics is a pronounced waist line, from which the skirt begins. The presence of a decorated belt or satin ribbon is welcome.
A train can be present in a classic outfit, but it cannot be too long and voluminous. This element entered the wedding fashion in the 15th century, so its relation to the classics is beyond doubt. But his presence in a short wedding dress will not save the situation and the image will still be considered unconventional.
It is generally accepted that there are no sleeves and straps in a classic-style corset wedding dress. The image is complemented by various capes, starting from the weather and the style of the wedding. It is also taken into account that when choosing a bolero or a shawl, you need to monitor the preservation of elegance and modesty.
Modernity dictates its own rules. The classic look becomes more romantic if the shoulders and neckline are covered with the finest lace.
Modest neckline does not require you to choose a closed dress with a collar reaching to the neck. But still too defiant, frank neckline would be inappropriate. There are a lot of options for a modest neckline, for example, a wide semicircular boat, complemented by shoulder-length lace. The unusual shape of the neckline can be identified with the classics, but caution and modesty will not hurt here. Choosing a square neckline, you can add the missing volume to the shoulders and balance the figure with wide hips. The neckline that opens the collarbone will fit the “sand” figure.
Classic dresses cannot have asymmetrical lines and wide straps that cover the neck.
The closed back allows you to add a mystery to the image, make it more interesting. Here you can consider not only the aesthetic side, but also the practical one. In winter, the bride will be warm, and in summer, the soaring sun will not harm the skin.
Now it’s time to move on to considering the styles that are taken as the basis for creating wedding classics.
Thanks to Queen Victoria, who appeared at her wedding in a magnificent dress with a long train and a tight corset, wedding fashion has replenished with another direction.
A wide range of fabrics can be used to create puffy outfits. The greatest relevance is characterized by organza with tulle. Layered skirts look beautiful, which flutter in the wind and when moving. Carries with it the nobility of satin, which is used together with a petticoat.
If the wedding includes a wedding, then the style and cut of the dress need to pay increased attention. A simple, closed and long outfit will be appropriate. In a small amount, lace may be present, which will add grace and lightness. To make the dress special, you can use an interesting fabric, such as velvet or satin. Designers manage to experiment with the cut, leaving it classic at the same time.
At that moment, when women were tired of uncomfortable styles of dresses, outfits with a straight cut and a length below the knee appeared. Simple, with a little decor — these dresses are still popular and often chosen by brides.
Established in fashion, the art decor style is still based on the use of smooth lines and minimal use of volumetric decor. The outfits may include a sleeve of various lengths, a closed top and a straight skirt. The most successful straight dresses look in soft velvet or sheen satin. It is these materials that manage to smooth out a strict style. The minimal decor is complemented by chic accessories in the form of capes, belts and veils.
Exquisite decor cannot be catchy. Contrasting colors, bright elements and colored petticoats — all this cannot be present in a classic dress.
Lace and embroidery with beads or rhinestones can only serve as decoration for a wedding dress.
Skillful handling of these decorating elements will allow you to create the most unusual and very complex effects, ranging from complex ornaments and three-dimensional patterns to plot compositions. The classic allows you to use delicate shades of white and beige, opal and pink for decoration. Their location and number is not limited — even in separate fragments, even along the entire length of the dress.
The color should of course be white. But you should not consider it boring, because it is in the white color that the innocence that the bride embodies is enclosed. The image is fresh and can be easily combined with other colors.
True, a snow-white dress is not suitable for every bride. Only girls with a winter color type (pale skin, dark hair, bright eyes) can safely choose a white dress.
There is no reason to be upset if you do not have a winter color type. Designers use dozens of shades of white to create classic dresses, from which you can definitely choose the only one. Maybe it will be milky or creamy, egg or pearl, alabaster or champagne. Although these colors are not pure white, they can still be used in classic wedding fashion.
Classics always remain out of fashion. So it will continue. And if such outfits seem boring to you, then there are always accessories that will add piquancy and allow the bride to display her personality.
