8 Best Edgy Looks from NYFW for Staten Island Weddings

New York Fashion Week is alive and well. It kicked off on Friday, February 11th and wraps up on the 19th. We have taken the liberty in reviewing the new runway looks and have selected ones that we think are perfect for the bride who is fashion forward and edgy.

1) Beach Chic by Tome

This first look is from Tome’s Ready to Wear Collection for SS16. We love this look because it is effortless and perfect for either a beach or lake side wedding. The gown flowed beautifully on the runway and will look stunning as the water front breezes bring out the full potential of this dress.


2) Traditional Lace with a Twist by Yigal Azrouel

This look is from Yigal Azrouel’s latest collection. The lace romper is stunning and a perfect solution for a bride that likes to break the rules. Rompers were originally worn as a practical garment for farm workers known as overalls. This garment has since evolved into a romper and was popular in the 70s. Rompers came back in style in late 2008 after stars like Rhianna and Taylor Swift were spotted wearing them.

3) A Pop of Color by Ohne Titel

Looking to go a step further? This look by Ohne Titel breaks all of the rules. Perfect for a city hall wedding or any other semi-formal type of wedding. The pop of red is a great accent color if red is one of the colors of your wedding or especially if you are having a love themed wedding. Read all four of our tips for a love themed wedding here.


4) Off the Shoulder by Ohne Titel

This off the shoulder dress, which is also by Ohne Titel, is perfect for a destination wedding or a beach wedding ceremony. We love how effortless and cool this dress looks, and the metallic belt is on trend for 2017. As you may know, metallic hues first became popular in the 1980s and have been in and out of style since their revival in the early 2000s. Today metals like gold, silver, or platinum and their metallic hews like rose gold, ice silver, or platinum red are considered to be neutral tones. Although we would recommend mixed and matching silver and gold tones before experimenting with the other colors of the metal spectrum.


5) Tea Length Dress by Jason Wu

This knee length dress is filled with flirtation. Jason Wu brought it this runway season. This dress is perfect for any bride that doesn’t care about the trends, wants to wear something that is comfortable, and is looking for a repeat dress.


6) Off the Shoulder Romper by Cushnie et Ochs

We are looking the rompers from Cushnie et Ochs. Rompers are an elegant solution for a girl who would vastly prefer to just wear pants on her special day. We also love how this romper is off the shoulder and opens up the neckline drawing the eye up to the bride’s face.


7) Deep V by Cushnie et Ochs

Cushnie et Ochs has done it again! With this pale pink, deep v gown, we love this for a destination wedding. Can you say lake side wedding?


8) Ice Blue by Wes Gordon

Lastly, this dress by Wes Gordon is on trend for 2016. With its subtle ice blue metallic fabric and mixture of sheer lace on the bottom, this dress is perfect for any nontraditional bride looking for a subtle pop of color.

7 Bridal Trends for Fall 2015 and Resort 2016

After looking through countless runway shows from the Fall 2015 and Spring 2016 bridal shows, we cannot be more excited about this season-s bridal trends! Top designers, such as Oscar De La Renta, Vera Wang, and Prata, have out done themselves this fashion season with their innovative twists on some modern classics. Below, are the top 20 trends for the 2016 Wedding Season.

1) Fringe and Feathers 

Feathers were originally used for ornamentation on headbands and masks, but in the 1920s the feather was used in dresses and skirts to provide more movement to the garments. This gown by Lela Rose is a prime example of how to pull off this look. The feathered skirt paired with the corset bodice is absolutely breathe taking.

Fringe, much like feathers, was huge in the 1920s and made a slight resurgence in the 1960s and 1970s during the hippie fashion movement. This dress by Naeem Khan is a great way to pull off fringe in a fun, classic way. Having the gown stop before the knee is a great way to be both fun and flirty for your special day.

Out of all of the fringe gowns that we have seen this season, this gown by Pronovias is perfection! The movement of this gown as you walk down the aisle will leave all of your guests breathless.

2) Separates

The crop top originally made its debut in the 1940s as a way for women to show a little more skin in a conservative manner. The tops originally had collars and only showed off a small portion of a woman’s upper waist, this allowed the hourglass figure of a woman to be emphasized. Since then, the trend has broaded since the 70s and 80s to show the midrift of a woman. This particular gown, designed by Stone Fox Bride, is remnant of the 40s rendition of the crop top, but is done in a high fashion manner as shown from their 2015 Fall collection.

The pantsuit was first worn by women in the 1920s, but was seen as being unlady like. It wasn’t until the 1960s, when Yves Saint Lauren, made the pant suit a desirable outfit by women of the era. Today, the pant suit has evolved and is worn by many celebrities. Brides have taken a liking to this trend because the look is a sophisticated option for any bride who is not a fan of wearing a gown. This one was designed by Temperley London.

Ballgowns have always been a popular option among brides, these separates were designed by Pronovias. This is a perfect blend of masculine and feminine for any nontraditional bride.


3) Corset Bodices

A corset was a popular choice for women in the 16th and 17th centuries. Oscar De La Renta‘s interpretation on this classic piece is one of the reasons why you will be all over this trend. The dress has a hyper feminine silhouette and will flatter any body type as it creates an hourglass figure and hugs a woman’s curves.

This lovely corset also plays off of the ice blue trend with the ivory color fading into a luscious ice blue at the bottom. Designed by Claire Pettibone, this gown has wonderful movement and flow.

4) Flouncy Sleeves

Sleeves were huge this past runway season, and many designers went outside of the box with the types of materials they used. The flouncy sleeve gives the garment more of a romantic look and really brings attention to elongate your shoulders and makes the bride look more confident and radiant as she walks down the aisle. This dress, designed by Claire Pettibone, was one of the standout dresses for this trend.

5) Cutouts and Laser-Cut Florals

Cutouts became popular in the 1970s and 80s as a way to further enhance the crop top. Today in fashion they are a great way to emphasize the smallest part of a woman’s waist in order to make her appear slimmer. This gown, designed by Anne Barge, combines the cutout trend with a metallic bodice which creates a very chic look. Perfect for any black tie themed weddings.

This romper takes the trend and goes it in a more subtle, sexy way. Designed by Gemy Maalouf, this romper is perfect for any nontraditional bride looking for comfort and style.

This trend began in the middle east and has since spread across fashion and has been adopted in various different ways.
