Sure, watching gorgeous gowns float down the runway is fun, but our favorite part of bridal runway season? Witnessing new trends emerge before our eyes. And for Fall 2015, there were plenty of new necklines, silhouettes, and embellishments.
Plunging V-necks made the biggest statement down the runway, with everyone from Dennis Basso to Inbal Dror and Naeem Khan showing the revealing neckline. The look is not only super sexy, but it also provides a sharp contrast to the regal high-necks and romantic sweetheart or illusion tops of previous seasons.
Equally modern, designers like Hayley Paige, Angel Sanchez, Rivini and Reem Acra showed numerous belly-bearing crop tops, and peek-a-boo cutouts throughout the bodice. (Perhaps Kim Kardashian's now iconic wedding dress served as inspiration?)
On the complete opposite end of the spectrum was the appearance of turtlenecks and outerwear fit for a fall of winter bride. While Theia went for full-on wool coats and a cozy cable-knit turtleneck, cool-girl label Houghton opted for an ivory moto jacket.</>
Plus, classic florals were reimagined thanks to laser-cut embellishments in Honor for Stone Fox Bride's debut capsule collection and Carolina Hererra's designs, which made bridal blooms pop. As did the ethereal sheer skirts, which give brides a more modest option for showing skin. And let's no forget the flouncy sheer sleeves, which popped up on Claire Pettibone and Delphine Manivet's angelic designs.
