Skin-colored sheer fabric
In this wedding season, we advise you to emphasize the cutouts. But the neckline doesn't always have to be really opened. The skin-colored sheer fabric successfully creates the illusion of an open back or decollete. It, by the way, not only implements the cutout props but also gives the desired shape to the dress, helping it to fit the figure beautifully. The image is, of course, bold and extravagant.
If you decide to use this option, be careful not to turn the attractive outfit into too frank one. It is advisable to choose the simple cut for such traditional wedding dress because the main trend of this season is jewelry and beautiful fabrics. So we advise you to make stress on these elements.
Wedding dresses with open shoulders add femininity and sophistication to any woman. Ladies in such dresses seem even more fragile, graceful and neat, so be sure to take a closer look at the dresses, opening the shoulders and beautiful neck.
Models with open shoulders can be straight and lush, with a minimum of decor or with an abundance of stones and lace - it all depends on your preferences and personal taste. The best solution would be to use large beads.
Beautiful open shoulders with slightly deflated sleeves - this detail will make the image elegant and refined. A wedding dress with open shoulders is suitable for women who prefer classic and romantic images.
2018 - 2019 is the right time to implement the idea of a wedding dress with long sleeves. Use a light and delicate fabric for the sleeves, if you celebrate the wedding in summer in hot weather.
Wearing a dress with a long sleeve, you will emphasize the upper body and divert attention from wide hips.
Flower embroidery is especially fashionable this year, and if it smoothly changes to the lightweight fabric of the sleeves, this can become a stylish bomb!
Instead of traditional veils, we offer you capes, long transparent capes, vintage coats, decorated with embroidery, feathers, and lace, which will add elegance and luxury to the image of a bride.
