Vintage Remade: Illusion Necklines

Categories Dresses + Fashion

The sheer beauty of the illusion neckline …  another wedding trend offering a nod to the past. Kate rocked a royal one. Audrey Hepburn rocked one at the Oscars. And of course, we’re seeing these lovelies pop up in wedding gowns for spring 2012. Why so popular? I think it’s because the sheer coverage around the neckline, shoulders and arms is sexy yet modest at the same time. And, no sliding like you’d have with a strapless dress. A perfect combination.

What do you think of illusion neckline gowns? Love them or leave them in the past?

    I love the illusion necklines, or just gowns with sleeves. I’ve seen too many of the girls practically falling out of the strapless dresses.

  • As an on site hair and makeup artist, I love looking at all things wedding! I loved the lace, the illusion, and the blue shoe trends now! Beautiful gowns!
