Classic Wedding Dresses

Feminine fit-and-flare dresses have captured the lively spirit of brides across generations. In the ’50s, it was stylish to wear a long-sleeved gown with a grand veil. Now we’re taken with edgier, two-piece ensembles, like this ivory hand-beaded chiffon and Chantilly lace top paired with a kicky silk organza and tufted-tulle skirt with French lace appliqués, $6,200, by Edgardo Bonilla. Vintage faux pearl earrings, $26; 14K gold and pearl ring, $150, both from Ilene Chazanof of New York, 212-254-5564. Vintage pearl bracelet, $40, from Dianna Castner. Silk satin slingbacks, $455, by Jimmy Choo.
