After a 2021 in which simple designs and, on the contrary, groundbreaking dresses have triumphed; The year that begins today promises to be that of romanticism, in the form of looks that evoke vintage details and in which accessories (rivières, pearl earrings, brooches and jeweled hairpins) will be the main protagonists. The 2022 collections show that the secret of the most viral bridal looks will be those that take risks without giving up the simplicity and personality of each bride. As of January 1, we review the essential trends that the most stylish brides will wear.
Like last year, in 2022 volumes and contrasts will play a prominent role in wedding dresses, especially in the second designs of the big day (designed for the ball), in evening weddings and in civil marriages. One of the most repeated ways to add volume to the body has to do with ruffles. The firms have incorporated the trend in 2022 in creations that mark the silhouette, as Atelier Pronovias does with the Woolf model from its Opera collection.
Common in custom creations and also in collection models, the halter neckline is here to stay, usually accompanied by a special back. Rosa Clará proposes it in her Nagasa design. Along with a straight silhouette, the firm presents it as: «a unique piece with a halter neck that will be the center of attention at the celebration».
Lucía Bárcena has been one of the most popular brides who in 2021 have opted for a dress with Victorian airs. Already in 2019 Ellie Goulding did it with a look with the swan neck that characterizes this historical stage, which is part of the period of the Industrial Revolution in the British Empire. That style typical of some of the most acclaimed literary works of the time is collected by firms such as Claudia Llagostera, in their proposals for this year that begins.
The need to adapt weddings and the commitment to simple, fresh weddings with reduced capacity has caused many firms to propose more versatile, timeless, comfortable designs with a second life. The pants have come to stay in the bridal universe and, although not all brides are convinced, it has been the choice of some very viral ones. This trend is decanted with this flattering two-piece proposal.
The vintage is increasingly relevant in bridal fashion and this translates into the return of all kinds of details that give the dress personality. The cuffs, on long sleeves, are once again the object of all eyes, with lace, embroidery and delicate details. The Soraya Cabral Design firm relies on its benefits for this bridal gown.
