Elegance is in the detail

And when we talk about detail, we are talking about accessories, small unique and special details. On your wedding day, in addition to the dress, the accessories will be remembered: because of that glamorous look or, sometimes, because of a wrong choice! Because one no longer has the time or the will to devote oneself in completing the outfit, risking being caught unprepared and getting the wrong look.

Fortunately, one only has to look at the runways of BBFW 2022 to spot the moment’s trends and choose from many offers.

The focus is on hair accessories which, never before like this year, are the rage in magazines and on the red carpet.

For walking down the church aisle, extra large circles, smooth and braided, or embroidered with precious stones and rhinestones; or double, metallic, covered with feathers, pearls or with a veil.

And for more bucolic weddings, petalled branches, wreaths or lace ribbons with fresh flowers. Suitable for garden receptions.

It is a great success for haloes with the very current raffia palm

as for the veil, there are many offers: tied with a bow on the back, in a foulard version or more jaunty, worn like a short veil.

One should not forget hats, which, according to etiquette, they should be worn during the day, while headdresses (small headgear attached to the hair by a clip, band or comb) are preferred in the evening.

There really is something for all taste and hairstyles!

Jewellery is also important, which until recently was strictly limited to the engagement ring and small earring pieces. But there is no shortage of options. One can see large sized necklaces, chokers, bracelets and maxi earrings (the petal effect is the rage!).

To complete the outfit (if necessary) we can add gloves and handbags. The gloves must be proportionate to the length of the sleeve and can be embroidered, plain or contrasting.

While handbags will be strictly micro, to hand on to friends during the ceremony and intended only for the reception. Precious and in pastel colours, except for more colourful outfits.

The new 2023 collections and this year’s runway’s shows, offer original ideas for perfect, avant-garde looks.
