A minimalist look is far from boring. For brides looking to keep their wedding day ensemble super chic and timeless whatever the trends, a minimalist gown is certainly the way to go.
By going minimalist, you also have more freedom when choosing the accessories that complete your look, with cool cover-ups and jewellery choices offering endless possibilities. but what makes a bridal look truly minimalist? We’ll let Puja Clarke, chief merchandising officer at Reformation, answer that very question:
“Bridal minimalism is all about clean lines, next to no embellishments, and no textural fabrics like lace. The fabric and cut speak volumes when it comes to a minimalist wedding dress, so both have to be done very well… Modern vintage is a very big concept happening in fashion across the board right now, particularly in bridal wear. It’s about updating details we love in vintage clothing and updating them to have a fresh, new-world look and feel.”
