This Is the Wedding Jumpsuit of 2021

Seriously, every cool-girl bride is wearing it.

In more ways than one, 2020 was not a normal year—so perhaps that's why the most popular wedding dress right now isn't even a wedding dress at all. In fact, it's a jumpsuit, and so many brides are rocking one in particular down the aisle.

Meet "Patsy," the unexpected outfit that has quickly become the most in-demand bridal look of the year. Designed by French bridal genius Rime Arodaky, the jumpsuit combines elegance with edge and screams simple with a statement thanks to sheer sleeves, embroidered details and a train—yes, a train!

How can a woman be more empowered than with a jumpsuit?

"'Patsy' has become popular because it has everything that any bride would want for her wedding: lace, fitted silhouette and a long train," designer Rime Arodaky tells Brides. "Plus, how can a woman be more empowered than with a jumpsuit?"

Despite being a unique bridal 'fit, between its illusion bodice, fitted pants and embroidered tulle train, "Patsy" wasn't made for a certain wedding style, theme or venue. Just look at the real brides who've donned the jumper for chic courthouse affairs, adventurous elopements, traditional nuptials, bold receptions and more. Per the designer, the jumpsuit's greatest asset is its "versatility"—a point already proven by brides across the globe.

But if the "Patsy" is so popular, how can you make the trendy option your own? Arodaky says high block heels (we found 30 affordable pairs to try!) and statement earrings are a must. "Find a style that suits [you]," she adds, "in which [you] feel beautiful and radiate confidence!"

Ready to hop on the trend? Ahead, see the wedding jumpsuit of the year, plus a few similar options we love! Besides, for a year as unique as 2020, what better to wear to the altar than this?

Crop and lace are the name of the game in 2021 and this Cushnie number combines those details flawlessly. Choose this if you want a jumpsuit slightly less dramatic than "Patsy"—but don't worry, between the V-neckline and flowing sleeves you'll still turn heads.

While Rime Arodaky's "Braham" jumpsuit doesn't have a train, it has another detail we love: buttons! Although a subtle embellishment, the button-lined pants paired with the illusion lace bodice make for an exciting and unexpected combination.
