There are many trends in modern wedding world, and unique accessories is one of them. We all got used to floral crowns, statement earrings and stuff like that but to look really trendy you need to try something like shoulder jewelry, for example, or maybe wear a cape over your wedding dress. A cape covers chest, arms and shoulders and can be long or shorts, it can be used as a coverup in any season and can highlight even the simplest dress or become a unique accessory. It’s a vintage clothes piece and was used for many years, so now it’s a gorgeous idea to add some vintage charm or even feel a fairy-tale princess in it! Capes fit many bridal styles, actually any style, from boho to art deco, everything here depends on the design. If you are interested, it’s high time to have a look at some examples.
A short cape is a chic and refined idea, such a piece isn’t used for warmth, it’s for a beautiful look. It can be extremely short – just on your shoulders, or maybe longer so that the back was a bit covered too. A very popular idea is a sheer cape with heavy beading, pearls or rhinestones, this is perfect for art deco and vintage glam weddings. Lace and lace applique capes can accentuate a sleek wedding dress or match it in detailing and colors.
