Wedding Inspiration from the 2014 Catwalks
Every year, new trends emerge in all areas of fashion, from Haute Couture in Paris to high street wear down our local shops. For the fashion conscious amongst us, what we look like on our wedding day is one of the most important elements of the whole occasion. That and the prospect of spending the rest of your life with that special someone…and having some delicious food of course. If you and your stylish groom want to keep on-trend during your nuptials, here are a few ways to incorporate this year’s hottest catwalk into your big day.
Although many eyes will be interested in what the bride is wearing, most grooms still like to look stylish and handsome for their big day. The metrosexual is upon us, and it is not a bad thing in the slightest. There are plenty of trends to choose from as the catwalk and stores begin to realise just how important mens fashion is becoming, and you can work these styles into your wedding look.
This year’s upcoming autumn and winter looks lend themselves well to groomswear in terms of colours, patterns and pieces. Floral and paisley prints were a big hit on the menswear catwalks this year whilst other designers such as Tommy Hilfiger continued spring and summer’s black and white theme with bold houndstooth prints, stripes and monochrome suits. The more demure groom may wish to transfer these snazzy prints in the form of a few accessories like this paisley tie from Marks and Spencer or this paisley bow-tie version from online retailer Polyvore.
Hot colours which would suit a more formal look this year include burgundy and grey from designers such as Viktor and Rolf Monsieur who both opted for head to toe charcoals with black patent shoes. Grey suits have always been a staple on the groomswear scene therefore this on-trend colour is perfect for a traditional look.
Alternatively, why not try a sumptuous deep burgundy suit as seen at Paul Smith and Kenzo this year to add a touch of class and panache. Team the look with some glitzy accessories like a classic watch from www.watches-of-switzerland.co.uk or superb cufflinks to complete the entire look.
Women tend to be spoilt for choice on what they should wear on their wedding day, and when shopping in general. Many brides opt for the voluptuous, traditional white wedding dress for the ceremony. However, why not be daring by choosing an on-trend coloured dress or incorporate some of this year’s fashion trends into your look?
Celebrities such as Jessica Biel demonstrated how to wear colour on your wedding day with a light pink, strapless wedding dress that she wore in 2012 when she wed Justin Timberlake. Many designers including Ines Di Santo and Sarah Seven have followed suit (pun intended) this year by created blush bridal creations which complement the complexion and add a little individuality to the look.
Designers such as Alfred Angelo and Jenny Packham have also played homage to old Hollywood glamour this year thanks to the hit film The Great Gatsby with romantic lace detailing, glittering silver and diamond jewellery and geometric patterns.
