I think since we are heading into the 20″s that flapper style and art deco dresses are about to have a big moment.

I hope sleeves stay for a good long while, so much more tasteful than strapless and way more elegant. I’m totally ready for strapless to be over, especially the straight strapless. Sweetheart isn’t too bad but the straight across strapless dresses remind me of 90’s prom dresses for some reason.

I really wish sleeves had been more in when I was looking for my dress :/ I wanted sleeves so bad and couldn’t find anything I liked so I just went with matching straps.

Sleeves (and not just cap sleeves), for sure.  

Color (beyond ivory/champagne/blush). I think with the staggering cost of weddings, more brides might prefer to opt for something that could be worn in the future as an evening dress.

Customization.  Services like Anomalie are springing up, as well as semi-custom options like Liberty and Lace (which essentially lets you mix/match from a set of bodices/tops and skirt styles). 

Fancy jumpsuits instead of dresses. (I came so close to picking a beaded jumpsuit and occasionally have twinges of regret that I didn’t).  I’ve seen a few gorgeous tuxedo style jumpsuits as well as fancy flapper-esque beaded ones.)

Emphasis on sustainable/green fabric and construction/manufacturing.

I think we’re going to start seeing less of the trumpet and mermaid style and more of the long sleeved, structured gowns. I think satin is becoming more popular as opposed to lace. 

The examples that stick out are Princess Kate vs. Meghan Markle (Duchess of Sussex) and Princess Eugenie.

I think we will see more Dupioni, gaberdine, moire taffeta and even shot silk. I think structure and fabric will become more important than the lace and heavy embellishments that are popular now. Maybe alongside this will  also be a resurgence of crepe and sleeved empire styles and possibly silk organza attached shoulder wraps/ sleeves. Lingere and plunging V styles I hope will fade along with see-through designs.

    lajoliebee : To that, I wonder if that’ll mean more separates? I’ve seen some lovely lace tops combined with a lovely pale French blue chiffon a-line dress. 



I like that strapless dresses are less common now. The stress of keeping a top flattering doesn’t seem worth it IMO. And there are so many beautiful sleeve options!
