Crop It Like It’s Hot

crop top and white feathers sjp crop white dress crop top vogueIf you’re not one of the crazy girls who has been planning her wedding day – including the dream dress – ever since you’re 5 years old; chances are even if you found a perfectly fine wedding dress – you secretly wish to get married again (to the same guy, of course) because there are several other “the ones”. For me; the options were ethereal chiffon, slinky satin, Jenny Peckham like lace, Elie Saab like embellishment, Giambattista Valli like feathers and wearing a two piece gown, preferaby the upper piece being a cropped one.

When I first saw the wedding photos of Emre Güven (a Turkish fashion photographer) and Liana Kesenci (a Turkish designer) on; I was green with envy. Not only did they have my dream rustic, alfresco wedding; the bride wore the simplest, most perfect crop top – bias cut skirt combo. Without a surprise, the idea was also adopted by some of the bridal designers as well, for their fall 2014 collections. Then I realized that Emilio Pucci, Chanel, Oscar dela Renta and such have already embraced the midriff in whites, as well as celebs like Olivia Wilde and Rose Byrne (need I remind you of the two piece salmon pink Calvin Klein she wore to the Emmy awards 2013).

It requires solid abs and lots of self-confidence but it looks so cool, so elegant and perfectly different. Definately my favourite bridal trend of all.

  1. You sure got your point across (and our attention) 😉 … crop tops are superb, for any occasion. Gorgeous bridal post.

  2. You should'nt be wearing that says

    I would have never thought about a crop top weddings dress til I saw this! I am considering it now! 🙂

  3. Definitely requires confidence like you said, but its such a fresh way to be completely original and elegant on such a big day, I’m converted!

    I couldn’t agree more with the amazingness of this trend. I am considering this option for my ‘reception dress’ but need to find the right crop/skirt combo for a 5ft girl with a tiny abdomen. Any suggestions- department stores i should hit? asks/bloomys??
