Would you swap the traditional dress for a skirt and top?

Skirt and top

Though the majority of brides will choose a beautiful white dress for their big day, most still want their gowns to stand out from the crowd. A good way to make your wedding outfit unique is to opt for a skirt and top, instead of a dress. By wearing a two-piece instead of a one piece, you have the flexibility to alter your outfit during the day and are able to tailor your look to suit your body shape and your style.

This versatility has made skirts and tops increasingly popular with brides of all ages. Like @wedding ways, “It’s clear that wedding dress separates are a BIG new wedding trend that brides everywhere are embracing.” So, would you swap the traditional dress for a skirt and top? And why are two-pieces just so popular?


If you have a specific idea of how you want your wedding outfit to fit, choosing a skirt and top instead of a gown can help you to achieve your desired look. Whether you want a full skirt and a tight top, a crop top and a knee length skirt or any other combination of cuts, you can select the pieces that fit you and your style perfectly. This allows you to build the outfit you really want and gives you the opportunity to play around with different combinations and looks.

Change your look

These days, a lot of brides decide to invest in two dresses for their wedding day: one for the ceremony and photos and one for the reception. This is because many want that fairy tale look for their main wedding snaps but also want a dress they can dance in when it’s time to party. If you opt for a two-piece instead of a one piece there’s no need to completely change your outfit when you head to the reception. Simply swap your full skirt for a lighter version or your tight fitting skirt for a looser one and you’ll be ready to hit the dance floor.

Non traditional wedding outfit


In general, opting for a skirt and top will be more affordable than choosing a traditional gown. This is because you don’t necessarily have to buy specially designed bridal wear. Instead, you can scour the shops for eye-catching pieces that can be combined to create a stylish and unique wedding look.


If you want to introduce a bit of colour into your outfit, a skirt and top is a great way to go. Choose a skirt or a top in a block colour, select a piece with a colourful pattern or source a belt, wrap or other accessory in your chosen tone. Adding a little colour to your look will help to make your wedding outfit unique and ensure you stand out from the crowd.
