There is something to be said about tradition, but the unequivocal (and unapologetic) allure of novelty is not lost on us. As modern-day brides begin to eschew age-old customs, designers are doing the same, with wedding sneakers, hiked hems and gowns washed in pink. But the newest silhouette on the block is the mother of anti-tradition, throwing wedding gowns altogether by the wayside. Brace yourself—jumpsuits! In light of the onesie’s popularity (especially among A-listers), the latest trend may not seem that much of a leap.
Last year, Viktor & Rolf duo rolled out a six-piece bridal capsule “Married” that comprised a shirt dress and, surprise, a jumpsuit (left). During Bridal Fashion Week last year, Temperley Bridal introduced new designs, breaking ground with a ’70s-inspired jumpsuit (middle). And more recently, J.Crew hopped on the bandwagon, revealing a flirty lace jumpsuit (and romper!) amid its usual line-up of dresses and gowns. Bridal jumpsuits may take some getting used to, but think about their versatility (pockets! mobility! comfort!). Tell us, would you consider wearing a jumpsuit on your big day?
