Varieties of Wedding Capes
They cover their shoulders and arms, fasten with buttons, hidden hooks or a brooch in the area of the clavicles. The cut does not constrain the hands, the sex reaches the middle of the thigh, the knees or even the ankles. The traditional version is a cape with long floors and a hood, which is useful at the wedding ceremony. Simplified models – a cloak without a hood.
Classic women’s capes are suitable for dresses with a narrow and semi-fitted silhouette:
in the Empire style;
Wedding boleros go without fasteners, so they open the neckline. The length and design of the sleeve varies: among the popular styles – “flashlight”, “corrugation”, “bell”, “calypso”, with shoulder pads. The dignity of this type of cape is versatility and diversity. Due to the shortened length, the bolero is in harmony with:
fluffy dresses on the rings;
new bow dresses;
the mermaid style and the year mentioned.
Bolero suitable for autumn, spring and summer – after all, in the winter can not do without a full coat. Season determines the choice of material. Guipure, lace, silk, satin are suitable fabrics for warm weather. Two-layered matter with a full pattern or embroidery, velvet, jacquard, solid artificial fur – such boleros will appeal to brides who marry in the fall or spring.
Bolero, made of the same fabric as the dress, will complement the strapless models. The result is a complete, holistic outfit, in which every detail is in the right place and does not distract from the solemn moment.
Fur boa with ties-ribbons or brooch – an elegant cape on the shoulders for those who chose a dress with open shoulders, a “boat” neckline, sleeves of thin, transparent fabric or lace.
Look at the downy boa if the ceremony is planned in the middle of spring or autumn, when the fur looks appropriate. If you arrange a wedding in the summer, light boils decorated with tulle or guipure will come in handy. Such capes can be supplemented with gloves to the elbow and ornaments on the neck – velvet, pearl thread, necklaces, collars and chokers.
A favorite option for those who prefer concise dresses, moderation in detail and discreet cut. Capes of this kind are similar to an elongated jacket or an even coat without pockets and are worn under:
dresses in linen style;
wedding trouser suits;
models with a trapezoid silhouette.
Capes, coats produced from crepe-chiffon, thick silk, jacquard, brocade and other heavy fabrics. Despite their asceticism, some look luxurious — the fabric, sides and floors are decorated with metallized thread, beads, and embroidery. Wedding fashion gurus are advised to buy such a cape to mature women who refuse veils and other ceremonial paraphernalia.
