4 Runway Bridal Trends in 2016

Beyoncé, Kim Kardashian, and J.Lo all pushed the boundaries in surprising ways at the 2015 Met Gala, and the celebrity fashion trend has officially arrived on the bridal runway. Whether it’s a plunging neckline, sheer panels, or ditching the white gown altogether, this season’s message is clear: expect the unexpected.

CUTOUTS

Cutouts are a chic way to incorporate a fashion-forward element into a traditional A-line lace dress. Two shapes to try: a large, circular back cutout, or a heart-shaped chest outline.

DEEP V

Make a dramatic statement on the walk down the aisle with a plunging neckline. If you’re afraid grandma won’t love it as much as you do, balance out the daring detail with demure touches, such as long sleeves or a sheer panel to feel a bit more covered up.

SLEEVES

Long sleeves have taken over the runway (it is fall, after all). Embellished, lace, and sheer sleeves allow for a number of ways to achieve a classic look. Plus, they’re versatile: sleeves pair well with sweetheart, V, and strapless necklines.
