It's wedding season. And if you're a bride choosing a dress that stands out and is in-style is sometimes easier said than done. So where better to get your inspiration than straight from the bridal runway.
This season's latest crop of coveted wedding dresses comes with an added twist. Think bold, contemporary silhouettes in place of past favorites. Plunging necklines, short-sleeved ensembles, and even a pantsuit or two are taking the place of your more conservative styles.
But for brides looking to sport the latest trends that don't stray too far from tradition, this season's emphasis on layers is your answer. From flowing tiers to cape-like additions, it gives a traditional dress a sense of fashion-forwardness.
