Spring Fashion and Wedding Style 2014

by Cynna

Spring 2014 runway styles are celebrating white and also the combination of black and white. Lots of icy hues showing up on the runways in muted shades of mint, violet, blue and blush.

There are also a bits of pink mixed with other colors as accent.

Spring has it’s share of fresh metallic hues as well and metallic embellishments as well. Overall there is a leaner, sportier style perfect for cottons and linens. Hemlines vary with many high low hemlines still in evidence and a longer tea to maxi length skirt showing up. There is also a pronounced love of sheers in ready to wear tops especially. Sheer bits fill in where cutouts would be, with a mix of solid and sheer in the same color. Crop tops are especially popular.  Not too many florals showing right now, but patterns especially in black and white prevail.  Lots of supple satins and matte sheen in fabrics show up in simple designs. Spring looks bright !

What looks will work for spring dresses and spring weddings ? Definitely blush and icy palette pastels will be perfect for spring weddings.

There were some really beautiful embellished necklines, both with metallic bits and fabric. These tended to be on high neck, sleeveless halter style gowns.

Varied hemlines beyond the usual maxi dress for weddings and certainly for dresses. Since pink is still in favor this spring, icy pales of pink along with pink accents on white gowns for weddings will look wonderful. Icy blues and mints are still going strong with icy pale violet an alternative.

For blush wedding gowns, a fresh take will be in satins, both mattes and eggshell or medium shine textures. Some lighter metallics will work in caramels and mochas. These will be great for rustic and woodland weddings.

A few wedding shots illustrate fresh looks from recent wedding’s like this ombre design with pink accents from Gwen Stephani’s nuptials. A really unique style made exquisite by the unexpected use of color in the skirt.

High drama and an ethereal style makes Anne Hathaway’s gown gorgeous in a more traditional style.

Another fresh take is this picture of bridesmaids in an ecru to blush shade accenting the bride Coco Rocha in white…. lovely despite the confusion and illustrating the satin theme from this Spring’s runways.

One of my personal favs is this short blush gown from Keira Knightley’s wedding. A vintage Chanel gown she owned already, this is a lovely mix of color, style and a modern take on wedding fashion.

For alternative brides metallics may go as deep in shade as your heart wants, but with maybe a lower luster shine factor. This gown from Shenae Grimes recent wedding shows the beauty and romance of a black wedding gown.
