Can't decide between long or short? Crave a mini dress but still want that beautiful long train moment down the aisle? Then you're in luck, the high-low wedding dress was all over the runways for spring and fall 2016 and if Whitney Port's recent nuptials are any indication, the trend is on the rise.
For her November 7th nuptials to Tim Rosenman, the fashion-forward former The Hills star made waves in an Ashi Studio custom-made gown she helped design. The gown featured a cascading waterfall hemline, long train, illusion sleeves, and silver embroidery all over. Paired with floral applique heels, pearl drop earrings, an edgy updo, and Port's legs for days, the dress created a contrasting look that was strikingly modern and classic all at once. Perfectly Pinnable wedding day inspiration for the style-savvy bride looking for a bold fashion choice.
And we can't deny the presence of the high-low hemline on the runway. FromMonique Lhuillier to Vera Wang, designers are catching on to the asymmetrical hemline. And no silhouette is safe from the high-low, from structured full skirts to slinky sheaths; legs staged their glorious, modern comeback on the runways.
At Ines di Santo, Inbal Dror, and Delphine Manivet the trend got a 1950's turn, with long sleeves topping off a the asymmetrical hemline, à la Whitney Port. Vera Wang and Claire Pettibone carved a high-low out of slinky lace, more boho than modern. While at Monique Lhuillier, Rivini by Rita Vinieris, and Alon Livne the trend took a show stopping approach with sweetheart strapless necklines and embroidery.
Here, we round up some of our favorite high-low wedding dress picks from the recent bridal fashion runways.
