Simply Bridal Presents Fashion Week-Inspired Looks for Spring 2012

Simply Bridal, an online wedding retailer, is releasing its list of spring wedding trends of 2012 inspired by last month’s Fashion Week.

Los Angeles, CA

October 18, 2011 is the place to check out exquisite handcrafted dresses at competitive prices. After a month of spectacular fashion shows, Simply Bridal is chiming in on which hot-off-on-the-runway looks will become latest wedding dress trends.

“This season, many runway looks easily translate to bridal fashion. White was especially popular and we expect there to be a lot of floral print bridesmaid dresses in the spring,” said Simply Bridal contact Harper Butler. “While it won’t be surprising to see daring brides with 80s inspired peplums, we predict that elegance and youth will be this spring’s prevailing looks."

Simply Bridal’s Five Spring Wedding Trends

1. A Touch of Masculinity

The androgynous look never seems to go out of style on runway, but how do you translate to a wedding where a bride wants to be the picture of feminine grace. Marc Jacobs and other designers seized the sporty look. While other likes Peter Som decorated models with suit jackets.

2. The Mullet Dress

Despite it’s rather unusual name, the “mullet dress” is actually quite practical and flattering. It shows off a flash of your legs and shoes with the possibility of a train. Zac Posen and Jason Wu both featured some super sleek and sexy evening gowns.

3. Bare Shoulders

The collections of Antonio Marras and Chadwick Bell both displayed asymmetrical one shoulder looks while Ralph Lauren, Zac Posen, and Carlos Miele all had gowns with exposed shoulders. From exquisite halter necks to off shoulder straps, a small amount of exposure is elegant, sexy, and youthful.

4. Sheer

Several designers such as Erdem, Julien Macdonald, Badgley Mischka, and Temperley London featured long sheer gowns decorated with embroidery and delicate lace. Chloé, Lanvin, Akris, and Dior all featured dresses with adorable pleats in sheer and semi-sheer material. The extra layering preserves the illusion of skin but without revealing too much.

After a winter of heavy fabrics like satin, sheer chiffon is like a breath of fresh air. With the right accessories, this flowy material can be transformed into classical Grecian, bohemian wood sprite, or super modern looks.

5. Color

Doo.Ri, Rebecca Minkoff, and Derek Lam wowed crowds with tangerine hued clothing.

Diesel Black Gold, Marc Jacobs, Custo Barcelona sparkled with iridescent, metallic, and pearly gowns. Other designers used a more muted palette of pastels, but still used color to make a loud statement through color blocking. While not every bride can pull off a colored gown or a different color top and skirt, a colorful accent is just as powerful and more demure. Pair a traditional ivory wedding dress with a bright sash, bouquet, or shoes.

A hint of masculinity makes for an ultra femme. A nicely tailored jacket is a wonderful accent for a wedding gown. If brides are sporting short hair, style for a tousled boyish look.
