Trend: Bridal jackets you need to see

Lace, fur, feathers and bolero-style jackets have always been a stylish way for brides to stave off the chill when they choose an autumn or winter wedding, but jackets are now taking an edgier turn since Kimye’s “Just Married” leather jackets.

Thanks to this, bespoke bridal jackets are becoming more and more unique, with brides experimenting with denim and leather.

Those who want an even more personalised look are having their jackets embroidered with quirky words and statements that are becoming a feature in their wedding photos.

Denim jackets

Denim is one of those versatile looks that grooms and groomsmen have been using for rustic, country-style, beach and Boho weddings for years.

Brides are increasingly jumping onto this trend, pairing a dark-stained or washed look denim jacket with their beautiful wedding gowns.

This fusion makes for a stunning combination and adds another level of casual beauty of a ruffled, mermaid, vintage or Boho dress.

The only thing to consider is how the cut suits the dress. Ideally, a princess or a-line dress suits a cropped bridal jacket, while a longer style can be worn with a mermaid or trumpet dress and relaxed fits.

Leather jackets

Edgier brides are donning leather jackets to bring a grunge look to their weddings instead to replace the need for a long-sleeved dress.

Brides who go down this rock ‘n’ roll path often wear the jackets slung over their shoulders, for a more casual style that also allows them to keep warm.

Bespoke jackets

Custom-made jackets are not new, Brides have been commissioning their dressmakers to create shrugs and lace-detailed jackets that match their wedding gowns for decades.

But, the latest trend taking the industry by storm is jackets emblazoned with quirky messages.
