2018 Bridal Trends: Eight ways to wear the cape

Posted 30 Jan 2018

If the trad veil doesn’t rock your world, why not channel your inner Solange Knowles and wear a statement cape on your big day? A key look as seen on all the recent catwalks, most designers presented some form of cape or capelet for 2018. Whether it be a sheer floor-sweeping number encrusted with glittery diamante detail à la Berta or high drama as seen with Zuhair Murad’s stunning take on the trend, there are lots of options for fashion – forward brides. And the trend can be totally wearable – style with a slinky silhouette to give an illusion of a train instead of wearing a cathedral veil, or choose a cute capelet to remove after the church. There are heaps of options to inspire - here’s our top picks for 2018.
