There’s so much more to the full wedding experience than the actual wedding day itself. From bridal showers, to rehearsal dinners, to post-wedding brunches, every bride-to-be needs more than one show-stopping outfit to get her through the whirlwind of events. Switch things up by adding a statement-making bridal pantsuit to the mix, which is a great alternative to the traditional evening gown. We found ten bridal pantsuits and jumpsuits at New York Bridal Fashion Week that will have Fall/Winter 2018 brides looking incredible during their wedding weekends.
With its impeccable tailoring and oversized bow details, Viktor&Rolf’s bridal jumpsuit is both classic, but with a couture edge (plus, we love the matching bow shoes!). Alon Livne creates a tuxedo-esque bridal pantsuit look with skinny trousers, a feminine blouse, and a detachable train, while Lihi Hod combines high-waist, wide-legged trousers with a cropped one-shoulder top for a gorgeously flattering mix of proportions.
Trading in the conservative lengths of a pantsuit, Julie Vino offers a more playful alternative with a short bridal romper and long train combo. Paired with strappy heels, this look exudes bohemian chic vibes, and would fare well during tropical destination wedding festivities. In contrast, Monique Lhuillier presented an elegant Fall/Winter 2018 menswear-inspired bridal pantsuit that displays the bold simplicity of a traditional tuxedo.
As a nod to the flower children of the 1970s, Naeem Khan’s embroidered lace jumpsuit is daring, yet demure; vintage, yet current. Paolo Sebastian also took a more embellished approach with a bridal jumpsuit in a romantic shade of tawny pewter. Sparkling embroidery and a delicate – yet dramatic – cape makes this the perfect jumpsuit for any formal occasion.
In lieu of glitzy details, Persy Couture’s wide-legged bridal pantsuit uses edgy hardware and asymmetrical lines to add interest. Rime Arodaky ‘s version is another beautifully understated option with cropped skinny trousers and see-through applique top. Finally, for those brides-to-be in search of something sleek, sexy, and stylish, look no further than Romona Keveza’s white bridal jumpsuit. Whether you choose to wear it for a rehearsal dinner or an unexpected outfit change during your wedding reception, this deceptively simple ensemble will leave a lasting impression.
