Without further adieu, a wedding dress we absolutely love. *
We never thought something could be simultaneously retro and modern, this bridal-inspired look by Kate Spade and Delphine Manivet effortlessly ticks both off of our style checklist. Giving off a cutesy vibe, this green cropped jacket is both girly and edgy, while the Silk Faille skirt is classically bridal. Both crop tops and pops of color are so of-the-moment, while the skirt's silhouette, and jacket's collar, grounds it as a classic.
To complement the striking look choose a simple veil, and, of course, a standout heel in a complementary hue. This ensemble begs minimal makeup and a sleek blowout (no added accessories necessary). This bride could be going to city hall or to a retro garden party — either way, we're obsessed with this combo!
