Wedding dress in the style of

Fem­i­nine, fig­ure-hug­ging Chica­go style wed­ding dress­es are the per­fect com­bi­na­tion of sophis­ti­ca­tion and ele­gance. The airy sil­hou­ette, freely flow­ing silk fab­ric, laid in beau­ti­ful folds, and the ele­gant style of such a mod­el will empha­size the seduc­tive curves of the female fig­ure and attract the eyes of oth­ers. The bride in such a dress looks very styl­ish, fem­i­nine, flat­ter­ing and mys­te­ri­ous.

A sim­i­lar style, empha­siz­ing the round­ed charms of the female fig­ure, is increas­ing­ly used in their col­lec­tions by famous cou­turi­ers. Wed­ding dress­es of the 20s-30s are present in the col­lec­tions of many famous brands and fash­ion hous­es. So, what is the pecu­liar­i­ty of such a style?

What are Chicago wedding dresses like?

In the thir­ties of the last cen­tu­ry, the length of the wom­en’s dress for the first time rose to the knee, and the sleeves replaced the straps. Togeth­er with a deep neck­line, an open back and a tight-fit­ting sil­hou­ette, this dress turned the young lady into an object of admi­ra­tion for oth­ers.

Ganster-style wed­ding dress­es, styl­ized as the out­fits of Amer­i­can women of the Great Depres­sion era, have the fol­low­ing char­ac­ter­is­tic fea­tures:

  • length can vary from knee to floor. Quite often, such an out­fit has a train;
  • the waist line is slight­ly under­es­ti­mat­ed, the sil­hou­ette is tight-fit­ting, smooth­ly expand­ing towards the bot­tom;
  • neck­line and deep neck­line on the back;
  • lack of sleeves and the pres­ence of straps of small width.

As a rule, flow­ing silk, satin, chif­fon and noble vel­vet are used for Chica­go wed­ding dress­es. Beads, sequins, fringe, lace, rhine­stones, fur are used as decor.

It should be not­ed that wed­ding dress­es of the 30s are not suit­able for all ladies. Such out­fits organ­i­cal­ly look only on the own­ers of a slen­der fig­ure. By the way, with the help of this style it is easy to bal­ance too wide shoul­ders.

Accessories for a wedding dress in the style of “Chicago”

As you know, any, even the most beau­ti­ful image will look incom­plete with­out the appro­pri­ate acces­sories. Gang­ster style wed­ding dress­es are no excep­tion. The lacon­ic slight­ly rus­tic style of such an out­fit is more than cov­ered with lux­u­ri­ous acces­sories.

Small hats dec­o­rat­ed with rhine­stones, feath­ers and beads, silk hair­bands and small veils look very organ­ic with a sim­i­lar dress.

Fluffy boas made of white feath­ers, boleros or boas made of arc­tic fox or black-brown fox are per­fect as an addi­tion to a Chica­go-style wed­ding dress. You can not do with­out high gloves made of satin or vel­vet, the length of which reach­es the elbow bend. The image can also be sup­ple­ment­ed with stock­ings in a fine mesh.

For a ganster-style wed­ding dress, it is bet­ter to choose shoes with a round toe and a medi­um height heel, as well as a small satin enve­lope bag.

Dur­ing the Great Depres­sion that took place in Amer­i­can his­to­ry at the begin­ning of the last cen­tu­ry, real jew­els were out of reach for most ladies. This led to the pop­u­lar­i­ty of jew­el­ry made of arti­fi­cial pearls, crys­tals and gold-plat­ed chains with large links.

When choos­ing acces­sories for the Gang­ster wed­ding dress, you can give pref­er­ence to a long string of pearls tied in a knot under the bust line, or a neck­lace made of large trans­par­ent crys­tals.
