OFF-THE-SHOULDER SLEEVES

Evoking a sense of Old World romance, sleeves are slipping down and gracefully grazing just below the shoulder.

BLUSH

A typical alt option in past seasons, blush-toned gowns have earned a prominent place in wedding fashion, and designers are complying. According to Kleinfeld bridal fashion director Terry Hall, it’s the second most popular dress choice, behind the obvious wedding white.

BELL-SHAPED SKIRTS

Another nod to Old World fashion, the bell-shaped skirt made an appearance down several runways for fall 2013. The dramatic ball gown is perfect for a statement-making entrance, with a silhouette that flatters.

ILLUSION NECKLINES

Romantic and feminine, illusion necklines are becoming as popular as their strapless predecessors. The subtle sexiness has been seen accented with lace, sheer voile and sequins for styles that range from delicate to decadent.

SLEEVES

Thanks to Duchess Catherine’s sleeved style choice for the Royal Wedding, it’s apparent that sleeves will be sticking around, especially in the chillier months.
