The Shape of Things To Come

From modern mermaids to billowing ballgowns, Wed showcases the season’s stunning silhouettes for all-eyes-on-you aisle style



BALLGOWN
Channel the modern fairytale bride in one of the season’s statement-making ballgowns. From sleek and simple to gorgeously embellished, don layer upon layer of light-as-air tulle and prepare to wow! We love a cut-out back detail for a contemporary take on the cut.

MERMAID
Hugging the curves and flaring fabulously for the perfect touch of drama, this form-fitting silhouette oozes feminine glamour. For mermaid with a modern edge, choose perennially on-trend lace, illusion panels or a design featuring intricate embroidery or lace detailing on nude tulle to create a ‘tattoo’ effect on the skin.

A-LINE
This classic cut flatters every figure, making it a reliable staple and blank canvas on which to stamp some personalised style. Opt for an open back, intricate beading, 3D florals, separates or a bang on-trend bow for a fresh and fashion-forward take on the silhouette.

SHEATH
The sheath is a clingy number that accentuates the female form and can be donned in a variety of guises, from lace to glam silk columns and wispy, barely-there skirts. Add long sleeves, a high Victoriana neckline, a low-plunge back or even a thigh split for a contemporary twist.
