A refined simplicity and purity make for a restrained elegance and beautiful naturalness to bridal dressing. Stripped back from unnecessary delicacies, adornments and details, an air of effortlessness and nonchalance take lead for a modern approach to bridal. Silhouettes of soft draping, relaxed tailoring and bias cuts of weightless silks and sheer cottons fall from the body into fluid forms that accentuate the feminine line and induce a little romance. No matter your wedding style, subtlety is key for a contemporary perspective to bridal.
“Balance volume with a slim-lined silhouette for a contemporary look of elegant restraint.”
A style of simplicity should feel light and seamless. To create an overall harmonious look, avoid closed-toe shoes that will add a heaviness and distract the eye. Instead, opt for simple strappy heeled sandals in tonal whites or nude. Pair with a set of barely-there studs with minimal linear bars and a delicate fine chain bracelet for an added elevated, yet subtle touch. Come reception, throw on a pair of statement earrings or metallic heels for a more celebratory look. In the words of Coco Chanel… “Before you leave the house, look in the mirror and take one thing off”.
“Consider the longevity and wearability of your bridal style beyond your wedding day for a timeless simplicity.”
