Christos Bridal Trends For 2013

Are you ready to see the new Christos bridal trends for 2013? Lace and embellished tulle are definitely going to take over next year.  Not only that, we will also see a lot of illusion necklines and A-line skirts. The best part about these beautiful dresses is that there are no stiff structured gowns. Instead, you will see light, flowing dresses which flatter everyone.  Last season we saw plenty of sexy backs which will actually return in 2013. However, this time you will see a more softened look against the bare skin, which features sheer panels of tulle and re-worked lace. Silhouettes in general have shifted toward more coverage and feature lace and illusion necklines made of embroidered tulle and organza. So, for those of you who just got engaged or have their wedding set for 2013 lucky you!

Christos Bridal Trends: Illusion Necklines

Have you ever heard of an illusion neckline with sleeves?  An illusion neckline combines a skin-baring bodice with a sheer fabric overlay which extends from the bust to the collar.  The neckline can be a boat neck, one shoulder, scoop neck with cap sleeves, etc.  These style are very demure and feminine and scream high fashion. I haven’t seen too many of these and can’t wait for the Christos bridal illusion neckline dresses to come out. Illusion necklines were featured prominently on the 2013 bridal runways and these designs have some of the most unique looks ever to hit the bridal industry. Some of these designs feature a carefully draped delicate fabric of tulle, organza or lace with crystal embroidery over sweetheart necklines. In the end, this creates a soft, elegant and romantic bridal look. Illusion necklines include a diverse variety of styles.

 Princess Kate led the way in bringing back this traditional style with her sheer lace sleeves and back on her lightweight satin gazar gown.  These styles are reminiscent of the 1950’s and absolutely timeless.  So, if you’re a bride who wants her dress a little more modest, illusion necklines are perfect because they offer coverage while still being slightly sexy and fashion-forward.  Christos bridal illusion gowns are a great alternative to strapless necklines and can help you find the right balance between sexy and sophisticated.

 Christos Bridal Trends: Lace!


Lace! Lace! Lace! We just can’t get enough. I don’t think lace has ever gone out of style or ever will. A lace-wedding gown is one of those styles you can wear to your wedding and ten years later you look back at your wedding photos with no regret. Lace gowns are classic and have a timeless look to them. Also, nothing speaks of romance better than a wedding gown made of lace. Christos bridal trends for 2013 feature lighter lace materials with less of the heavy stiff lace like Alencon.  For those of you who want to make a lavish lace fashion statement consider choosing a bridal gown made entirely of lace. If you add a bit of color on the lining like a blush or champagne colored satin the lace detail on the gown will pop up a lot better. From hand-beaded to fluted-skirt to sleeved bodice, lace still has a hold on runways and wedding aisles and will be around for a long time. It’s soft and romantic and everyone falls in love with Christos bridal lace gowns.
