Can I have a wedding day do-over? Because the latest bridal trend is giving me major bride envy. BHLDN released a bridal separates collection, and I can't image a better time to be a bride. No worries, the feminine gowns are still here: fashion is just going about the silhouette in a new way. Mix and match bridal separates are feminine, flattering, and affordable. Swoon.
BHLDN's separates line might be the most genius thing to hit the wedding industry. The line includes corsets, toppers, and wraps that can be mixed and matched for an a la carte bridal look. No matter what combination you choose, the end result is much like the more-or-less traditional looks we've come to love.
The line has skirt styles and lengths for everyone, ranging from lace to tulle and even intricate floral patterns. Tops come in a variety of colors, from blush to beige and, of course, the traditional shades of white.
So, why switch to separates for your big day? Fit could be a defining factor. Sometimes, one-piece gowns pose a bit of a problem, what with all the different body types, resulting in extensive altering. Alterations can rack up the bridal salon bill, and quick. Separates give the option of better fitting, the first time. Or, if you are simply looking for a more customizable, individual look, then separates put you in the designer seat. Score.
