Wedding Dress Wednesday :: Boleros and Shrugs

Winter is upon us. Having a winter wedding can post some challenges. Having that dreamy chiffon dress may not be a wise decision, if the winds whips around and slices through the thickest of fabrics. Adding a bolero can help cut the chill factor while still being fashionable. Check out this week’s Wedding Dress Wednesday collection.

jackets and boleros

Arts and Crafts: Hand cut organza petals compliments the Alençon lace bodice. The organza overlay makes this ballroom gown voluminous without the weight. The matching organza petals and lace shrug really makes this dress stand apart from the rest. {Priscilla of Boston; $3000+}

The Capulet Family: Be Juliet in this romantic cap sleeve lace bolero. Fitted to minimize the shoulders and accentuate the strapless neckline. A dropped waist cinches off the hip with an applique and beading. {Mikaella; $1250}

Bell Shaped Curve: The silk a-line silhouette constructions creates hard lines and structure. The soft lace bolero with bell shaped sleeves softens the overall look. Lace trims the bolero into a sweet bow. {La Sposa; $2500}

Sheer Pleasure: Beaded appliques are are sprinkled over the organza and satin underlay. The sheer lace jacket sits pretty around the shoulders and balances the full skirt and small waist. A thick satin sash in warm copper wraps the waist. {Jasmine; $1100}

High Society: Structured cap sleeve bolero in silk  has a ruffled hem that reaches to the sky. When paired with a simple strapless dress, it creates a sophisticated ensemble. Pleats on the bodice help create an hour glass figure.  {Paloma Blanca; $1500-3000}

Turn Up The Volume: Three looks in one. The slimming trumpet skirt is removable and reveals a mini dress. Or remove the bolero for another look. Silk petals are scattered throughout the mini dress and skirt. The billowy organza shrug adds another artistic feature to this versatile frock. {Reva Mivasagar; $3000+}

The bolero intent is to add character and function instead of taking attention away. Choose the dress first, then find a bolero to match. Try finding a chic bolero from the English Department. Elizabeth’s unparalleled sense of style is found in her dreamy collection of boleros.
