Flowy or A-Line Silhouette is always a good start. It is universally flattering for almost all body shapes and comes in a variety of styles you can choose from. The name speaks for itself as this silhouette forms an “A” shape with a fitted waist that gets fuller as it goes down the hem. It is a tamed version of a ballgown and is ideal for those who want a little less dramatic flare. This is a versatile style that can accentuate your best features and hide undesirable attributes. This year we’re seeing lots of tulle overlays with sequin or lace tops.

One word: Princess Ball Gown. The princess ball gown look still remains a popular choice. Cinched naturally on the waist and flares out dramatically with a lot of volume to give a Cinderella fairy-tale twirl. This classic ballgown silhouette has evolved and taken a new look on what a princess wedding gown is - its all about extravaganza and detail.

Modest cuts have also taken the bridal fashion swiftly. Meghan Markle’s “Duchess effect” still lingers to this year. However, 2020 is full of twists. This clean, fuss-free wedding silhouette gets paired with asymmetrical cuts to compensate for the dresses’ simplicity. Architectural structures and even one shoulder long-sleeves are taking a nod from brides to be. Scallop necklines with off shoulder are becoming popular too. We know that sheath dresses offers a minimal flare compared to other silhouettes so we get why minimal stylings are the perfect match for this silhouette and for brides who love clean lines and sleek shapes.

Mermaid dresses are perfect for those brides who are going for a sexy and sultry look. It accentuates every inch of the waistline and hips. This is ideal for those with an hourglass figure or want to show off their figure. This is a little more fitted than a trumpet silhouette as it is body-hugging until the knee and gives volume from there on. The mermaid style dress gives a sleek and sexy look for the bride and will surely turn heads.

One thing we’re sure of is that lace is one of the bridal mainstays this year. And we’re loving the charm it brings with the trumpet silhouette. Lace gives off a bohemian romantic vibe but can also be regal with cautious picks with lace choice. And this year, it has taken a major edge with corset bodices growing popularity. The trumpet silhouette perfectly shapes the body-- we’re loving this new take on sophisticated sexiness.
