The new trend in weddings seem to become jumpsuits. They’re even a fashion staple in the closet of reality TV stars the Kardashian sisters. But this year, they’ll be seen in a whole new way: on women walking down the aisle.
“We are seeing a lot of destination brides considering the jumpsuit, a lot of brides who are getting married for the second time,” said Keijia Minor, editor-in-chief of Brides magazine. “The wedding jumpsuit will flatter many figures and will be within reach of a range of budgets.”
So who is wearing jumpsuits to their weddding? We’ve seen Kim Zolciak of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” in this look to her recent wedding to NFL player Kroy Biermann.
Designers of wedding jumpsuits include J.Crew, Lanvin, Rivini and Victoria Kyriakides and Vera Wang Debuts Pink Wedding Dress Collection at Bridal Fashion Week.
“I actually think they’re really cute and it’s really awesome. Brides are taking a twist on the classic bridal silhouette,” Alex Arechiga said. But Cheryl Shapiro disagrees. Strongly. “When I think of a jumpsuit I think of flying out of an airplane or something,” she said.
If you like the idea of the jumpsuit but are too traditional to wear it down the aisle on your wedding day, Minor said the garment may be worn at another wedding-related occasion, such as by the bride-to-be at the rehearsal dinner or brunch the day after the wedding.
