Spring 2020 Trends:
Earlier this year, spring 2020 bridal looks hit the Bridal Fashion Week runways. As the countless blogs and “authorities” on style and bridal fashion made their opinions known, there were a few similarities in their lists like the incorporation of capes, trains and separates. Two trends we are excited to see throughout wedding fashion is “Studio 54 Vibes,” as calls it, and “bridal blazers.” It’s not that these styles are new to the bridal industry, but they have really made their mark among the spring 2020 collections.
Like Bianca Jagger’s YSL smoking jacket in her wedding to The Rolling Stones front man Mick Jagger, the 1970s this look is back and we love it. Additionally, the 1970s resurgence gives opportunity to combine both the ‘70s vibe with that of the power blazer. Separates for wedding looks have already made an impact in wedding fashion, the women’s blazer has had a huge year. Harper’s Bazaar notes, “Suiting has become no stranger to the bridal world, but now these sleek, handsome, and borrowed-from-the-boys options are so ubiquitous in weddings that they’ve taken on innovative approaches.” They note that blazer jackets that double as a mini dress (Kelly here: my personal favorite) sleeveless jackets or jackets with the addition of a cape are taking rehearsal dinner and after party looks to a whole new level.
There is something powerful about ‘70s women and their fashion reflected that dynamism. Naeem Khan, Oscar de la Renta and Viktor & Rolf all previewed looks inspired by the era. Our favorite is this Theia gown, which also includes two other popular trends for the season – capes and over-the-top accessories.
Obviously, these are not the only trends that caught our eye during fashion week. Stay tuned for more highlights and bold style choices in upcoming “Let Them Eat Cake” blog posts.
