Just wondering what style dresses you guys think are the most timeless and classic. Not necessarily traditional/formal, just the sort of dress that when you look back in 50 years, it won’t look dated or make you wonder what the heck was going on ‘back in the day’ haha. Pictures are welcome!

Ivanka Trumps wedding dress is absolutely GORGEOUS. I’m so in love with it and it kinda looks like Princess Grace’s dress and no one can dispute the timelessness of that.

I agree with Princess Grace’s dress. As popular as strapless dresses are now, they are actually fairly new in the grand scheme of fashion history so they will look dated compared to other styles. But every generation, and individual for that matter, has their own idea of what classic and timeless is. For that reason, there isn’t any single style or element that everyone across the board will agree on. Wear whatever makes you feel gorgeous and don’t pay attention to what other people say. Of course, in 50 yrs (or even 10) the fashions will have changed but it shouldn’t make you regret your dress choice given the timeframe you chose to be married in.

I think Jackie Kennedy’s wedding dress is timeless. I could totally see a girl today wearing this dress:

I loooooooooved the dress Penelope Cruz wore to the Oscars last year. It’s a vintage Pierre Balmain dress from 1950– so amazing. I’m not sure if it had straps originally, but it’s pretty darn timeless and classic. 🙂

Ember — I agree that what one considers timeless will vary from person to person; however, I think it is fair to say that there are some general currents of thought on the matter. Note the agreement on Princess Grace, or as an opposite I think that most people would consider the single strap dress to be a contemporary “trend.” I just love “show me your dress” type posts, and I thought it would be fun to have a different theme other than “your own” because we’ve seen them all so much. (Though I still love seeing them!)
I love Ivanka Trump’s dress, too. And definitely Princess Grace’s dress. That is the silhouette I have looking at!
I have never seen Jackie Kennedy’s dress before, but I love the neckline and loops in the skirt. So pretty!
