Let’s talk dreams! Today we have a bridal gown collection to discuss! And isn’t that exciting!? To state a fact, they are every girl’s dream, but when those girls grow up, they face a very hard decision-making process of choosing that ONE bridal gown, which they won’t regret for the rest of their lives. Tough challenge, isn’t it? We are here to ease that process a bit, by showing you the latest Carolina Herrera fall 2016 bridal collection. So many options, so little time to choose.
In fact, the collection consists of 12 bridal gowns, which could be grouped into 2 themes, if you’re short on time. First is the lace theme, sporting the luxurious and legendary lace appliqué and embellishments around neck and shoulder areas. A little sparkle never hurt nobody, so get close for a more detailed look on these delicate features. If you’re not a fan of lace and prefer the plain white canvas, hang on, we’re about to move on to the second theme, which includes gowns accentuated by simplicity, straight lines, plain surface, and a creamy feeling.
Usually, when it comes to bridal gowns, the audience always expects showstoppers… well, don’t. Learn to appreciate the simple elegance that a dress may carry without any extra help from lace or sequins. Your wedding should not be based only on the WOW-factor, so think about what your wedding means to you, and when you figure that out, open the Carolina Herrera lookbook and choose your dream dress.
One of the key features of the entire Carolina Herrera bridal collection for fall 2016 is the use of sheer fabrics and the illusion of transparency. Corsets are firm and fixed, while shoulders and the skirt leave space to play around with. It seems as if these dresses were designed to tell secrets or, more precisely, hint about them. Carolina Herrera masters have put layers of tulle and lace on top of each other, making the dresses deep as a painting and keeping you together with the rest of the audience guessing.
There’s a subtle diversity when it comes to shapes and silhouettes. Some of them are quite traditional, A-line skirts with corsets and delicate lace appliqués on the shoulders. But there is one particular dress worth mentioning. Would you ever expect a bridal gown to have a crop top? Oh yes, it is so real, and looks so fantastic. If you’re proud of your body and don’t mind showing more skin during the wedding day, go ahead with it!
Overall, the style is very gentle and soft, for women who like to feel feminine during their most important day. In fact, if you’re not betting on the white color, pick the purple-pink gown with a deep-cut top with corset and foggy skirt constructed of layered tulle – the luxury on top, and the aery femininity on the bottom.
Don’t rely on the veil and shoes too much, because if your party is going well, they will come off in an hour, but The Dress, which will stay on for the entire evening. And in case it doesn’t, you have to make sure it comes off elegantly.
