While bridal trends are constantly changing, one trend has stayed true—strapless wedding dresses are still our most popular neckline. Universally flattering and timeless, brides often choose a strapless style – especially because they are easy to accessorize! Not sure where to begin? Check out our top ways to style a strapless dress, below.
1. An embellished veil
We love the way a beautifully embellished veil looks with a simple strapless gown, such as a satin mermaid or a silk mikado fit and flare, like the styles featured above. By choosing a plain fabric without embellishment for your gown, you’re free to add a veil that WOWS—think beading, sequins, lace appliqués, or satin trim.
2. A bolero
Boleros are a great option if you’d like two looks in one, or if you’re getting married in a religious ceremony with a reception elsewhere. Whether you purchase a style with a bolero included (like the Pronovias style featured above) or you add one suggested by our accessories consultants, boleros add a classic and traditional look to your wedding dress.
3. Statement earrings
Jazz up a simpler style with a fun pair of statement earrings and a chic chignon. Diamond drops, colorful fringe, oversized pearls—whatever suits your fancy. Another great way to incorporate this style is to keep things more traditional for the ceremony with a classic bridal hairstyle and veil, and then sweep your hair up into a sleek pony, pop in some fun earrings and swipe on a red lip for the reception. The possibilities are endless .
4. A simple headpiece
With a dress that speaks for itself, like a princess-inspired ruffled ballgown or a sexy crystal encrusted mermaid, all you need is something simple to top it off. Our suggestion: a small comb, delicate hair vine or barely-there headband should do the trick.
5. Statement heels
If you just so happen to be interested in baring a little leg, we’ve got styles for you! We love how fun and flirty a statement shoe (think a bold red heel, or your something blue) looks with a strapless gown featuring a high-low hem or a daring slit.
