Bridal wear for 2017

> The trend for colour­ful wedding dresses is set to con­tinue

The Sun (Malaysia) - - FASHION -

THEY may not be suf­fi­ciently tra­di­tional for some, but the trend for colour­ful wedding dresses is still on­go­ing and even gain­ing ground. More and more brides-to-be are choos­ing touches of colour or a coloured to­tal look in their bid to bring cre­ativ­ity and orig­i­nal­ity to their big day.

When tak­ing the plunge and choos­ing a dress that is dec­o­rated with colour­ful de­tails, fu­ture brides are of­ten mo­ti­vated by the de­sire to "brighten up" a dress, or at­tracted by what they see as a handy means to adapt an out­fit to a cho­sen wedding theme.

When colour is re­stricted to dis­creet touches, it is gen­er­ally fo­cused on the bustier where it can be used to draw at­ten­tion to em­broi­dery and other mo­tifs, or pre­sented in the form of a coloured lace back. Some women who choose to say their "I dos" in white and ivory are at­tracted by the con­trast cre­ated by colour­ful ac­ces­sories (belts).With re­gard to shades, nearly ev­ery­thing goes. How­ever, black, choco­late, red, and bordeaux are the sub­ject of de­bate, while grey, blue, pink and pur­ple are in­creas­ingly pop­u­lar, while dip-dye dresses with an om­bre ef­fect at the bot­tom have also been get­ting at­ten­tion – at least on the web. Launched sev­eral sea­sons ago, the trend for colour­ful wedding dresses was once again con­firmed this year, even if it is far from oblig­a­tory. White and ivory still re­main the first choice for the vast ma­jor­ity of bridesto-be who favour the im­mac­u­late look of more tra­di­tional cre­ations. – AFP
