The tea length skirt and 50s-style neckline gives this dress a casual, retro feel. It’s perfect for a less formal wedding, or for brides looking for something with a bit of moxie.
Fit, Feel, Color, and Fabric
The bodice is lightly boned, so you don’t need to wear a bra. A classic sweetheart neckline topped with delicate French Chantilly lace, gives the clean look of a strapless gown with the comfort and wearability of sleeves. Multiple layers of tulle in the skirt add shape and movement, and flare out at your natural waistline – flattering your shape without constraining the stomach.
The simple, vintage shape of this dress lets you have some fun with styling. Add a pop of colour with some retro t-bar heels or metallic flats, and play up the glamour with bright red lipstick. The illusion neckline means you don’t need a necklace, but chunky studs or simple drop earrings would look gorgeous. Choose a short birdcage veil for a real 50s look, or keep it simple with flowers in your hair.
