What’s Trending in 2017 According to The White Files
The White Files is excited to share with you it’s first editorial shoot for 2017. It’s a celebration of all things that we expect to be trending this year, featuring gowns from some of our favourite Australian designers. So many Australian designers are doing incredible things in the bridal scene – reinventing tired traditional bridal gowns into modern masterpieces.
This is a celebration for what’s ahead in 2017…
TWO PIECE SETS
This satin set by Silvana Tedesco Couture has a midriff with stunning cut out back detailing, and fitted skirt with a long train that is sure to turn heads as you walk down the aisle.
Brides who wear the pants are in. This set from Silvana Tedesco Couture pairs sleek high waisted pants with a gorgeous detailed bodysuit resulting in a modern but romantic look.
THE COLD SHOULDER
The ‘cold shoulder’ as it’s affectionately been named by the many fashionistas rocking the trend has been huge this past year. This off the shoulder gown by Georgia Young Couture has sheer paneling perfectly complimenting the feminine form.
This gown by Georgia Young Couture is sheer perfection – literally. The amazing intricate beading and high halter neck add the finishing touches to a breathtaking gown.
We love this sophisticated gown by Silvana Tedesco with a cut out at the waist and intricate detailing. The pairing of the traditional embellishment with the modern silhouette and cut outs makes for the most perfect contrast for modern, fashion conscious brides.
This one shoulder beauty by Dan Jones gives out a real grecian vibe, but the added slit provides the perfect modern twist.
Clean oversized florals are undeniably popular in 2017.
Tassels made a huge impact at NYC Bridal Fashion week late in 2016. So be on the front foot of the trend and incorporate them into your wedding day look. These earrings by Jeanette Maree are a hybrid between beautifully classic wedding earrings with a modern tassel as a fun twist.
Crowns for weddings have been outdated for many years, but this has left a gap in many brides-to-be hearts who longed to have the crowning glory to complete the ‘princess’ look on their big day. Put away the tiara and instead opt for an embellished headband for Blair Waldorf levels of cool.
HAIR & MAKEUP
Less is more in bridal hair this year. The chignon that once dominated bridal hair and took hours and thousands of bobby pins to create has been replaced with textured, beach waved hair. Add a top knot or a messy high pony if up do’s are more your thing.
For makeup, metallics are in. Add a hint of gold or silver to an understated smokey eye and you’ve got yourself a winner!
