7 Spring Fashion Trends To Inspire The Discerning Wedding Guest
With wedding season upon us, let’s turn our eyes to the catwalk for some truly original outfit ideas.
Don’t shy away from bold colours – the current spring 2018 palette is bright and highly saturated. And dismiss the idea that yellow can’t be worn in formal occasions – dresses like this elegant gown from Maticevski prove otherwise.
Sheer, skin-revealing fabrics don’t have to be naughty if used the right way. In fact, sheer fabrics can easily add a touch of fairy-tale fun, as seen on this Disney-inspired gown by Paolo Sebastian.
Florals for spring? Ground-breaking. *eyeroll* But florals, and polka dots, and stripes, on top of more flowers? Yes please. This high-necked maxi-dress from Alice + Olivia is what it’s all about.
Satin is a light and fluid fabric that’s comfortable to wear day and night. If you don’t think you can handle a full satin gown, try out one that mixes fabrics, such as this gorgeous dress with a satin bodice from Marchesa Notte.
What is it about a fringed dress that makes you think of celebration? For weddings where you need to be at your ultimate glamazon best, opt for a dress with a lively fringe detail a la Zuhair Murad that you can shake from dusk till dawn.
Fashion’s prettiest and most polite shades will also be big in spring, but smart tailoring and unexpected cuts will add interest to these springtime staples, like this exciting Carolina Herrera dress.
Ruffles add a feminine air to any outfit. If you’re not much of a girly-girl, don’t worry - paired with a structural cut, they can be a stunning feature without becoming overwhelmingly sugary.
