Every year sees a change in vogue and this includes bridal wear. 2021 is no exception to this rule. After the horrific year of 2020, brides are now celebrating fashion more than ever. Some of the latest wedding fashion to embrace this year has been discussed below.Back to the 90s

Bridal designers have been re-inspired by 90s fashion this year. Therefore, bridal gowns having details such as puff sleeves and voluminous skirts inspired by Princess Diana’s wedding gown are coming back in style. Apart from this, sleek slip dresses with necklines such as halter neck, high neck, square collars, sweetheart necklines and such sported by various 90s brides have also made a return.

Ruffled Glory

Fairytale weddings are incomplete without princess gowns that are larger than life. This mystic and royal feeling is intensified through ruffles. This romantic yet whimsical detail never goes out of style and has been a perpetual part of runways, especially since maximalism became the preferred aesthetic of most designers. However, ruffles don’t just have to be over a full skirt, shorter dresses or dresses with ruffles all over are just as much in season.

Convertible Gowns

Wedding gowns are becoming more versatile in 2021. Hence, gowns that contain pieces which can be reworn separately are in fashion. Playsuits or short dresses with a removable skirt, dresses with a lace shrug, bodysuits under gowns or a two piece adjoined dress with a broad belt are a few examples of convertible wedding wear.

Architectural Elements

A plethora of designers are slowly realising the importance of accent pieces that make a bridal gown stand out. Therefore, enlarged bows, oversized shoulders, rising flaps on the chest and other such sculptural and architectural elements are becoming a major part of modish wedding wear. Moreover, with the advent of the pandemic, it became difficult to import exotic embroidery work, intricate lace designs and so on. Thus, more and more designers turned to subtle designs with one element that can take the gown a step further.

Relaxed Bridalwear

Styles all over the world are becoming more practical and comfortable. This is exactly what is happening with wedding dresses as well. Instead of excruciatingly long gowns, shorter lengths such as mini and tea length dresses are taking over. In addition, numerous brides are opting for smart pant suits. This laid back approach has also taken off due to the wedding ceremonies becoming more intimate.

Comfortable Cottagecore

Shows like Bridgerton have designers turning to bohemian elements. Cottagecore aesthetic has thereby returned to the runways. This comprises elements like romantic bishop sleeves, easy smocking and flowy empire waist dresses. Originating from agricultural and pastoral life comfortable cotton fabric, loose fits and classic patterns are embraced here.

Subtle Gatsby

After a year indoors, the relaxations on gatherings in 2021 call for something extraordinary. This is the time to embrace the party vibe and sport fashion that is dramatic but not over the top. Remembering this, designers are turning to the Gatsby for influence. Frills, bling, exaggerated drop waists and figure flattering fits are the party essentials which are back on the bridalwear market albeit in a subtler manner.
