The best bridal trends from the spring summer 2020 catwalks.

These runway looks prove the bridal look can be sported outside of a wedding.

The 2020 spring runway shows were awash with bridal references; not so much as something to wear to get hitched in, but more as a nod to romance and innocence. The trend takeaway? 

Celebrate you, on your terms, in a knowing way, with fabulous everyday bridal looks for that wedding vibe whenever you fancy. Just make sure that while you’re hashtag living your best life, you’re hashtag being your best wife.

Here’s our roundup of the top five bridal trend looks. Nuptials optional…

  • The jumpsuit

    This Viktor and Rolf jazzy jersey jumpsuit has an early 80s disco vibe, yet somehow oozes a knowing kind of innocence. From the brand’s official bridal range, the beautifully draped bodice, elegant scarf detailing and flattering pant leg can only mean one thing: I do.

  • The mini dress

    For those of us who might feel just a little immodest in this Isabel Marant mini dress, there’s always the option of teaming it with a pair of jeans. Coachella wedding chapel, watch out, here you come.

  • The trouser suit

    This exquisite trouser suit couldn’t be more bridal if it tried. Alexander McQueen designer Sarah Burton upcycled fabrics used in previous collections as part of SS20. She worked with a confection of exquisite linens and damasks from Northern Ireland. Pledge your allegiance to peace, sustainability and love. That’s something to engage your mind with.

  • The white shirt

    The magic touch of Valentino designer Pierpaolo Piccioli is the exquisite gift that keeps on giving. It’s impossible to pick just one of the dozen white looks with bridal under- and overtones opening the Valentino SS20 runway show. Piccioli told reporters at the time that he took the basic white shirt and applied “a couture sensibility”, resulting in a confection of the most exquisite dresses you could possible imagine.

  • The vintage dress

    The Prada peasant girl swore a solemn oath to style from the moment she was born. She throws on a bridal cotton shift (or is it cheesecloth?) with raggedy hems and ribbons at the shoulder as her daily uniform. A bride of fashion, she slays through the crowds in a low key luxe manner, like a butterfly wearing an oversized, carefully folded, beautiful handkerchief from her chic grandmother’s wardrobe. Bonnet definitely not essential.
