    I don’t know if mermaids are going to go away. I mean, they were in in the 80s, and only briefly out in the 90s, then back in in the 2000s and have stayed in since. The only difference has been the style of mermaids – todays are either super simple, ruched, lace or with textured skirts, whereas in the 80s they’d be worn with puffy sleeves and shiny fabrics.

    It’s like with strapless – once a style is established as a sexy style, it’s unlikely people will go back to something that’s perceived as less sexy. 

    (And no, I’m not an advocate for mermaids or strapless per se, but some people look great in them so why not? It’s just that there are others who don’t look so great but wear them anyway…)

    But anyway, since you asked – I think the next trend is already here – low backs with or without illusion fabrics, really tight and intricately beaded. Lots of tulle and lace skirts. Basically the entire Berta Bridal/Inbal Dror catalogue.

    A lot of celebs have been wearing the lace bodice with high neck and long sleeves and a big ball gown. I’m sure that will trickle down and gain popularity

    I am really secretly hoping for puff sleeves to come back. I am a big fan of Anne of Green Gables.

    I think it’s going to be those really weird dresses with the seethrough bodices. You know the ones where you can see the boning?

    I’m seeing them start to creep in, so I’m glad I already have my dress!

    That, or separates. Not like in the 00s where it was a bodice and skirt, no – I mean the crop top boob tube and skirt. Seeing a lot of them in magazines, and some of them actually look…. ok? Hard to tell on an overly photoshopped model! 🙂

    Ambi D:  Long sleeves.  Can’t tell you how many brides come in looking for 3/4 and long sleeves.

    I think two-piece outfits will gain in popularity although I do think they only really work on very slim girls so I can’t see them becoming as ubiquitous as the fishtail.

    I don’t think the silhouettes will massively change, but I do think we’ll see less strapless (we already are).  Also less embellishment and lace, and more clean, minimal satin and things like that.  We are already starting to see several of those on the bee, when even a year or two ago most people said they hated satin.

    I also think gowns with or in colors other than white are gaining in popularity and that trend will keep spreading IMO.

    I tried on a high neck two-piece gown (high neck halter lace tank top with a floor length, fairly fitted lace skirt that met the crop top juuuuuuuuuuuuust so) and it was actually gorgeous.  I’d say two-piece dresses and high neck dresses are the next things.

    I wonder about tea length dressed as seem to be more of those in demand or maybe just my friends.
