Brides looking for drama without the weight will find solace in overskirts that emphasise the train without compromising the dress. For a bride looking to rock red carpet-worthy couture on her wedding day in lieu of a traditional gown, Zuhair Murad‘s spring 2018 collection features both sheer and sheath options, in addition to a statement floral overskirt, the perfect transition from the ceremony to reception.
Overskirts – like sparkling capes – are the free-flowing trains through Murad’s artisanal lens that always manage to combine effortlessly chic figures with more sleek, contemporary patterns. With exquisitely beaded fabrics, rich floral embroideries and oversized skirting, each of these gowns couldn’t be described as too ‘busy’ or ‘extravagant’ as every bride adores a vintage bohemian touch.
The Zuhair Murad collection references both the boho-chic trend, as well as the classic Hollywood style with glamorous silhouettes from fairytale-like to flared ones. The overall style is incredibly dramatic, with voluptuous overskirts, sheer sleeves and an array of necklines to play with. Handy tip; for spring brides, skin is definitely in.
In addition to the sheer long-sleeve trend, gowns with overskirts surely are the best option for brides who can’t wait to show off their voluminous layers during the ceremony and take it off at the reception. Why not get the best of both worlds by wearing something light and heavy which would make it much easier to dance the night away!
