A rich blending of the traditional flair and a modern muse can form incredible trends for example, long sleeved wedding gowns. This stylish trend has its roots set squarely in the days of old when women had to conform their wedding (and everyday) attire to society’s strict whims. While it may be a takeaway from a more restrictive time, the modern-day upgrade to long sleeves has brides everywhere swooning. And we can see why: the contemporary fusion of long sleeves plus any of the popular trends on the runway today makes for a sexy yet sweet concoction of bridal beauty. With long sleeves on your wedding dress, you can nail any level of sophistication with ease. The best part? Long sleeved wedding gowns aren’t restricted to winter weddings!
We’ll explore the most popular style first: lace sleeves. Depending on how you wear it, this style of sleeve with delicate lace running down your arms can either evoke your inner fairytale princess or boho chic beauty. Soft, flowy lace paired with champagne or blush-colored tulle emulates a warm bohemian vibe that will be perfect for your boho chic wedding. Or for a more elegant touch, intricate beading and crystals can be featured on the long sleeves of your luxe trumpet-style gown for an exhilarating up-scale affair. Sheer sleeves are perfect for warmer months to add that barely-there feel to any wedding gown, while still conjuring up a modestly modish appearance. Our favorite is the graceful fusion of both lace and sheer sleeves. Many designers incorporate this trend into their designs, and we love the examples shown below. Lastly is the solid sleeve; a very refined and sophisticated style that adds an air of mystique and royalty. The best part about long-sleeves? They look amazing on any body shape or size!
