The Kate Middleton factor certainly shook up the monopoly of necklines that brides are now choosing to go down the aisle with more than just strapless necklines. Strapless is popular however we are seeing a wonderful sophistication with new Necklines.
The Boat neckline is very “Audrey Hepburn” with its quintessentially ’50s styling. Demure yet sexy, the boat neckline is ideal for flaunting a beautiful collarbone. For Henry’s take on the trend, check out Kara, which was voted your favorite dress in 2011.
The V Neckline can lend itself to various silhouettes and is always flattering–particularly for fuller bust lines. For Henry’s take on the trend, check out Kendal. On this dress, Henry softened the “v” of the neckline with 1940s styling on a chiffon gown.
An a-symmetrical neckline is glamorous, gorgeous and oh-so Hollywood. The fashion-forward silhouette has become a contemporary classic that is growing in popularity with our brides. For Henry’s take on the trend, take a look at our Kathy and Karissa gowns.
The new way to do strapless is with a very pronounced sweetheart dip in the center. This is a favorite neckline with A-Listers–it is confident, chic and really focusses on a gorgeous neckline while the shape elongates the torso. For Henry’s take, have a look at Kalea, which is effortlessly stylish and sexy.
The “ bridal dip” neckline is a move straight across strapless that gets a dipped-and-draped treatment for a soft and sophisticated neckline. For Henry’s take on the draped neckline, we suggest you look at Kay.
A note from Henry:
With all these fabulous new necklines, the choices can seem overwhelming. But remember: overall, it is about brides having more options than ever. The move towards fashion in wedding gowns has gown styles looking more chic and styled than ever before.
Good luck with your wedding frock shopping and don’t forget: When you feel it you will Rock Your Frock !
