Illusion neckline wedding dress by Monique Lhuillier
What’s trending for 2012 bridal wedding dressses, you may ask? For 2012, the trend veers to illusion necklines, complex and multi-layered hemlines, blush and pink shades, and lace sleeves. Illusion necklines encompass a diversity of styles, offering sheer coverage yet still subtly sexy and gorgeous. An illusion style neckline is similar to a strapless gown but with sheer coverage. Such coverage may come out as a thin sheer, delicate layer of fabric like chiffon or fine lace , pearls and other embellishments. The illusion neckline covers the area of your decolletage and back which is normally exposed when wearing a strapless gown.
Karen Willis Holmes describes it as “a delicate sheer fabric overlay, extended past a solid neckline, can soften the shoulders and overall feel. Oozing femininity and sophistication, the use of a sheer fabric over the neckline, draws the eye to your décolletage”
Whatever the trends are, or whether a bride’s style preference is classic, modern, romantic, or casual, there is always an endless selection of wedding dresses.
