Guest Contribution : Top Trends in Wedding Dresses for 2013

Your wedding gown is the centerpiece of your wedding. All eyes will be on you and the gown, and your choice will influence the colors and style of the bridal party attire, the types of flowers you choose, your wedding cake and your other decor. Of course, it will also be immortalized in your photos forever, so it’s important to make the right choice.

This season, there are many trends in wedding dresses that can make you a beautiful bride with an unforgettable wedding. Here are some of the top trends in wedding dresses for 2013 for you to consider:

Bare Backs

barebackwedding1Wedding gowns are getting away from the prim, covered-up looks of the past. Today’s wedding gowns are a little bit sexy, and they’re not afraid to show off your figure. One of this season’s top trends is the bare back — either from a plunging backline or from a cut out. The result is a sexy view of the bride as she walks down the aisle.

The strapless gown is starting to fade into the background as the strap rises again. This season’s hottest gowns have sexy asymmetric necklines with an off-the-shoulder strap. Once reserved for evening gowns, asymmetric necklines are giving a whole new look to wedding gowns.

This season’s gowns are getting lower in the back and higher in the front. The hemlines are getting shorter, resulting in gowns that have tea-length or even mini-skirts. It makes for a much easier dress to dance in during the reception!

Ruffled hemlines may seem like something that went out of favor in the 80s, but this season’s wedding gowns update that look to create something sophisticated and gorgeous. Sculpted ruffles advance far beyond the hemline and can take up the entire body of the skirt, creating dramatic and abundant swirls.

Long sheer sleeves are hot right now, and they add a touch of old-world elegance to a gown. Lacy, sheer sleeves look romantic and feminine, and they are great for a formal wedding or one with a garden theme.

Of course, any dress you choose should reflect your personal style. Choose one of these trends and you’ll get a dress that’s memorable and a great reflection of who you are.

A SURVEY SAYS: If you Bought Leather Pants, You Regret it

Poutlings!

Some trends infect the fashion world like a disease and it’s only a matter of time before you catch the bug. One of those trends last year was leather pants and surveys say that they are the trend you most regret buying into.

Lambrini, conducted a survey of 2,000 women surrounding trends they most regret purchasing. With a 46% REGRET FACTOR, leather pants topped the charts as the “most regrettable purchase“.

As sexy as people perceive leather can be, the material can be very unforgiving and expensive to purchase, making its number one position logical. Following leather pants, is an interesting contender, shell suits. While no one we know of has ever bought a “shell suit” that is under the age of 40… An lastly rounding out the top three is a deliciously tacky trend of velour tracksuits.

Check out what other trends of Christmas past still haunt your memories today. How many of these have you bought into? A lady never reals her past fashion fax-pas, but your closet will surely not lie.
