What We're Loving: Bridal Cover Ups and Boleros
Mar 22, 2013
Of course strapless is always in style but we are seeing a shift and it's now en vogue to show a little less skin when walking down the aisle (think Princess Kate). Of course you can achieve this with straps or sleeves but you may also consider a cover up- including, a separate bolero, jacket or shrug when searching for this option. Whether you're looking for more coverage to change up your look, as a matter of modesty, or for warmth, we have a variety of choices that will get your heart racing. Our coverage options can take any gown from simple to stunning in just a matter of moments- scroll below to take a peek at our collection photographed on one of our favorite simple, sweet heart dresses... 1. Moyna 'Ruffle Bolero': This design is for a bride who wants to add a little something extra to her wedding day ensemble- notÂ necessarilyÂ for coverage but to highlight her personal style. It's lightweight, full of texture and the blushy tone is just perfect for an outdoor wedding on a cool summer night. 2. Modern TrousseauÂ 'Lace Jacket with Sleeves and Back Buttons', $750: This exquisite piece by Modern Trousseau is designed to work under or over an already existing gown yet the result looks as if the dress had been made with this piece attached. The bateau neckline isÂ extremelyÂ elegant and flattering on the bride who wishes to show a little less skin- or just one who loves lace! This design can be customized to accomodate a desired sleeve length or neckline. 3. Jenny YooÂ 'Addison Top', $390: This piece can be worn two ways- as a high neckline and a "v" in the back or opposite as a v-neck jacket with front bow. We love the diversity this piece gives- anything that can be worn multiple ways is a winner in our book! We also love the light, delicate lace pattern- its not too heavy on even the simplest gown. Choose this piece at a garden party wedding and you're sure to be the belle of the ball. 4. Jenny Yoo Â 'Bianca Bolero', $350: This new arrival features a lace mandrin colar and beautiful cap sleeves. A classic bolero, this piece pairs beautifully with any lace (or non-lace) gown. 5. Ivy & Aster 'First Date Bolero', $150: Not so into lace? Meet Ivy & Aster's angora boleroÂ availableÂ in ivory, black and soft gray. If you have an outdoor spring or autumn wedding planned this piece will be a lifesaver once the sun sets. Its warm, easy and elegant. Â And the price is divine as well! 6. Augusta Jones 'Jayma Jacket', $850: This is another piece that is designed to go under the dress to create the illusion of a sheer, yet higher neckline. We are in love with the placement of the lace detail on the front- so regal. The sleeve length hits at about 3/4's of the way down your arm which we think is super flattering. This piece totally transforms any dress we pair it with. 7. Augusta Jones 'Elle Jacket', $1200: This is our most full coverage option- the Elle Jacket can slip over an existing gown to create an incredibly romantic lookÂ reminiscentÂ of Grace Kelly. Back buttons, lace and a little bit of glitz. Who doesn't want to look like a princess?
