Sure, the calendar still says 2021, but it’s already time to look ahead to what’s on trend for 2022 as far as bridal fashion goes. Taking a page from Bridal Fashion Week and trend reports, here are some bridal looks you can expect to be white hot in 2022 (think dramatic, bold, and sultry – with a little Bridgerton inspiration thrown in, too).
Let our team at The White Room help you find the perfect gown that features any of these trends, and then some!
For spring 2022, designers are thinking of dresses in bloom – floral motifs made a huge splash this year.
The more dramatic the better! After a year of minimalism thanks to the pandemic, think a touch of extravagance, with feathers leading the trend pack.
Deep V Necklines, Backless Dresses, and More Skin
Designers this year are especially celebrating the female form, presenting looks with deep v necklines as well as form-fitting looks, off-the-shoulder sleeves, thigh-high slits, backless dresses, and gowns that show a bit of skin – some dresses forecasted to be on trend next year are tea length, and sometimes even shorter.
Thanks to the success of the hit Netflix show Bridgerton, we’re seeing vintage looks have a moment. Puff sleeves are on trend, as are corset bodices and ruffles – straight off of the Bridgerton set!
And speaking of Bridgerton, square necklines inspired by the show are a big hit for this upcoming season, too. It’s a great way to flatter your shoulders and collarbone while still being modest, and it is very romantic.
Looking for a two-in-one look? You’re in luck, because transitional pieces are en vogue. Think bridal capes and removable sleeves that allow you to take off an item and debut an entirely new look in the same night.
Fashion from the 1990s is de rigeur right now, and so it’s no surprise that slip dresses like the one made popular by Carolyn Bessette-Kennedy in 1996 are back.
Want to add a dramatic oomph to your dress? Add a bow to the back. Some designers’ looks feature delicate bows, and some are over the top big in the “more is more” vein.
