New York Fashion Week Looks That Could Double as Wedding Dresses
It's not over yet, but here's what we love from the first few days of New York Fashion Week.
New York Fashion Week is in full swing, and we're happy to report that there are a slew of wedding-ready looks walking down the runways this season. White gowns have become a go-to for many designers, though stunners in light pink, icy blue, and other bridal shades are also being pulsed into their assortments. We've spotted everything from simple, cami-inspired dresses that channel the boudoir trend to embellished midi designs that shimmer and sparkle. It's not over yet, but here's what we love from the first few days of shows.
Though the silhouette of this dress was minimalist, the silver mesh overlay was everything but. This was the epitome of edge and boasted an undeniable rocker-chic flair.
Sachin + Babi
Though you couldn't tell by this design, Sachin + Babi is brand new to the bridal game. They clearly continued their marital feeling with this stunner from their Spring 2017 collection, which is brimming with ruffles and lace. The entire assortment was inspired by ballet and ballerinas, and you'll surely want to dance the night away in this beauty.
Few do boho-chic better than Johnson, and this design felt handcrafted in the best way possible. Can one ever go wrong with ruffles?
A soft, flounce neckline, pretty keyhole, and flattering pleated detailing: what's not to like about this piece?
A plunging neckline and wide belted waist are two key details for maximum figure enhancing. As well as looking fashion-forward, of course.
Siriano makes the dreamiest gowns, and this head-turner was no exception. The caped dress with a thigh-high front slit is the perfect piece for the modern-day bride who likes a bit of sexiness and sizzle.
Simkhai has quickly become the king of the red carpet. And you'll look like one of Tinseltown's finest in this slinky gown with embellishment and sultry cutout detailing.
If you want to feel flirty and romantic, look no further than one of Fetherston's gowns. This diaphanous look comes together in three pieces: a skinny scarf languidly tied around the neck, a wispy blouse, and a glossy, floor-grazing skirt. We're thinking post-ceremony brunch for this ensemble.
The modern and artful latticework of this Carolina Herrera gown is exactly why we cannot get enough of this designer's creations. The tulle skirt anchored it in ceremonial perfection. You'll want a ponytail or sleek chignon to let this number get the shine it deserves.
Who knew that crosshatching could be so elegant? Well, Lela Rose of course. This entire look, complete with the model's natural afro, was a stunning sight to behold.
If you want to drop some jaws on your big day, then wear Delpozo. This look felt so right for an engagement or rehearsal dinner, in which you will be the most stylish belle of the ball, of course.
The diaphanous and glossy nature of the fabric on this Marchesa gown was simultaneously sultry and futuristic. The ruffles and waist-cinching bow brought it all together in bridal-perfect glory.
Monique Lhuillier is a go-to designer for us when it comes to pretty much any moment that requires glamour and glitz. This gown—brimming with embellishment and flirty feathers—was the best embodiment of the phrase "pretty in pink" if ever there was one.
Oscar De La Renta
We've always loved the drama and charisma of ODLR's gowns. And it's clear that the brand will continue to capture that allure and beauty under the new direction of Laura Kim and Fernando Garcia. This stunner with gold embroidery will look fantastic with gold shoes for your wedding.
We're all for a sultry, wedding dress that showcases our best assets. But we will always be enamored with a dress that channels the Victorian era: a high-neck, long sleeves, and full skirt always does it for us. Case in point—a beautiful pink confection from Reem Acra.
Few designers make ensembles as charming and showstopping as Rodarte. This sheer dot, high-neck blouse and high-waist, asymmetric hem skirt felt classic yet fashion-forward. We're envisioning it paired with a half-up, half-down style like the runway look and a pair of statement-making pumps for the sartorial-loving bride-to-be.
Zac Posen is undeniably one of the kings of the red carpet. This strapless vision was transparent in all of the right places and embroidered in all the rest.
