You know the saying, “what’s old is new again.” And this statement has never rung truer for wedding dresses. Today’s brides just can’t get enough of gowns inspired by vintage trends, silhouettes or fabrics. Don’t believe us? Take a look at a few of our favorite gowns and bridal accessories with a distinct throwback feel.
The slip dress is a noted staple of the 90s, but in fact it was in the 1930s, during the golden years of Old Hollywood, that stars like Jean Harlow made slinky bias-cut gowns a true fashion craze. Today, we replicate the understated glamour of a soft fit and flare silhouette in our elegant Meralda dress with diamanté beaded embroidered lace appliqués. And the best part? A sexy plunging back. Play with proportions by finishing the look with a full, cathedral length veil with a scalloped lace hem.
The 1920s were all about art deco. This style of art and design featured bold geometric shapes, clean lines and glamorous accents. We see these same characteristics highlighted in our Musidora gown. The intricate, allover beadwork and cap sleeves give us flashbacks to those elaborate Gatsby parties. Include another nod to flapper fashion and top your look with a stunning rhinestone halo.
To pay a more subtle homage to the style of the 20s and 30s, consider combining elements of the old-school style with a modern silhouette. Our A-line Mollie gown features accents from the age of opulence like crystal beading throughout the sweetheart bodice and delicate cap sleeves. These vintage details mix beautifully with modern trends like a full silk chiffon skirt and open back. Feature even more beaded details in a fingertip length veil with a gorgeous rhinestone hem.
Bohemian style was all the rage in the 1960s. Free-spirited looks embraced floral prints, wide sleeves and an eclectic feel. Brides looking to capture that hippie spirit can slip into our boho-inspired Marion dress. Chantilly lace in a vintage nude shade perfectly suits the beautiful design featuring a beaded neckline and graceful bell sleeves. Enhance the natural aesthetic of the dress with a floral hair clip in a loose wavy hairstyle.
