Vintage Inspired Wedding Dresses--- For Stylish Modern Brides
Vintage wedding is quite popular in recent years. Brides love vintage styles, not only for the timeless glamour of aged fashion, but also a mainstream of modern bridal fashion. Here comes a simple guide of styles from 1920's to 1960's.
1920's fashion is about flapper. A flapper dress is straight, tight and sleeveless, with the dropped waistline to the hips. For brides, you can select a flapper style white dress. A cap veil pleated with Chantilly lace or a chaplet headpiece will add much more touch of 1920's feeling.
1930's is simple and slim. A natural slim silhouette became the fashion and took the place of the 1920's boyish cut. The hemline also dropped suddenly ankles and lower. A loon sleek appearance with draping fabric is crucial for brides to create 1930's feeling.
1940's glamour features pointed long sleeves combined with a slight sweetheart neckline high on the neckline. A V-shape line emphasizes the waist.
1950s were extremely modest. Compared with modern wedding dresses, this style doesn't show a lot of skin, usually featuring sleeves and not-too-low neckline. The 1950's is also extremely feminine. A very emphasized waist combined with poof-up full skirt creates a big hourglass shape. Lace is another common characteristic in this style to make extreme feminine feeling. A pair of tall thin heels wore underneath the tea length skirt shows perfect ankles. Bodice with fitted bosom, hoop skirts, tiered lace, upstanding style collars, lace boleros matching a strapless dress, flutter hem and other looks will make their way into a 1950's fashion.
