This week we want to highlight some elegant touches that are sure to create a stunning vintage style. We like to use soft accents, which boast an aura of femininity. Please enjoy!
The hair for this type of look can be worn up or down, but we have chosen to highlight these beautiful up-styles because of their adaptability when working with all different textures and densities of hair. Soft curls are strategically pinned to showcase the shape of the curl pattern. We love the accent hairpiece placed asymmetrically, although this style is beautiful with birdcage and traditional veils as well.
Beautiful soft pinks and oranges for the lips and cheeks, and neutral tones on the eyes keep this look soft and natural. The rose colored lip looks beautiful with ivory wedding gowns.
An easy way to achieve a vintage feel to your bridal style? Lace! We love gowns and veils that are accented with lace trim, or in the case of the photo, gowns made completely of lace. Trumpet style gowns are a popular cut for this look also.
When designing a bouquet to fit you vintage style, be creative! Ask your florist to help you choose a variety of flowers that will compliment one another. We like pale colors in vintage style bouquets. Think pale greens, soft pinks and oranges, and lilac/lavender tones.
The trends for bridal gowns in 2014 are absolutely extravagant. One of our personal favorites: lace! We are seeing lots of lace on the runway, so this week, Valentina D’ Angela would like to share with you some complimentary hair trends to pair with these beautiful gowns.
Lace is such a soft feminine fabric. It is important to not overwhelm these subtle touches of elegance. Soft curls and loosely pulled back up-styles enhance the overall look. Styles with less volume can compliment lace nicely as well.
Both of these hairstyles feature less volume, and in both of these hair styles, the point of focus is lower on the head shape. There is diversity here because this particular balance can enhance a high-class, glamorous, vintage look, or a more free-spirited, naturally elegant type of look, both of which are being seen all over the runways for Spring 2014. More beautiful looks next week!
Happy New Year from Valentina D’Angela! What will 2014 bring for you? Are you planning a wedding? Braids/braid crowns are a trendy yet classic addition to most styles. Don’t be afraid to experiment before the big day. Loose braids can be very romantic, making you irresistible on your wedding day. Accessorize with flowers or lace veils. Take care to select the absolute perfect accessory to make sure it’s appropriate for the look you want. Pair a delicate flower with some light pink lipstick for a soft natural look. Or try bold red lips with a lace-draped or birdcage veil for a classic glamorous look.
We hope this year is your best year yet!
