3 tips to wearing a Mantilla
Posted: Nov 4, 2013 3:56 PM

Hi ladies! I get a lot of questions on how to wear a mantilla so I thought I'd share! Here are 3 things to consider:

1) Hair: Opt for a style that is low, soft and/ or flowing. Low side buns, soft curls or half up styles are all great options!

2) Placement: With a mantilla, you have 3 placement options. The most traditional way to wear a mantilla is at the top of the head (2 inches back from the hair line). For a modern approach, place the mantilla at the crown of the head. Lastly, place the mantilla at the lower back of the head to create a romantic renaissance look!

3) Dress: Any dress fabric will compliment a mantilla. The real deciding factor here is fit. Opt for a silhouette that elongates the body and gives shape.

I hope this helps! Ultimately, itís your big day and you should wear what you feel most comfortable and beautiful in!
