What Makes a 1970s Wedding Dress?
Today, '70s-inspired wedding dresses are not dated. Key elements like bishop sleeves, mock necklines, and floral lace patterns modernize the appearance while glorifying probably the most recognizable trends of 1970s fashion. Floral print, ruffles, and puffy sleeves were three styles featured in Thefeeltimes' 2020 wedding gown trend roundup. Maximalism is another common theme among all 2020 wedding trends, beyond dresses. Since these are defining aspects of a '70s wedding gown, there is no better time for you to embrace the popularity of your nuptials.
We've seen lots of bishop sleeves this season, founder of feeltimes. "It brings '70s vibes having a fitted cuff at the wrist, and also the billowing bell sleeves. It's great because they can travel across seasons." As some couples go for alternative ceremonies like minimizes, sequel weddings, or destination elopements, thin billowing sleeves or flutter capelets are perfect for transitioning an outfit for any season—and they're two features that embody '70s style.
Billowing sleeves with wrist cuffs are a staple of the '70s style. White embroidery over nude fabric is a modern method to wear this trend, which makes it a great selection for brides who would like their turn to feel elevated and fresh.
Together, a higher neckline and capelet effortlessly evoke vintage flair. This unique bohemian lace and trim are fantastic for fashionistas who've got a finger around the pulse of what's trending.
Tulle overlay and lace embroidery bring ethereal vibes to this flattering fit-and-flare skirt. The capelet makes this '70s-inspired wedding gown appropriate for just about any season—it will not be too warm for summer, but more fabric may also winterize an outfit.
