Two-Piece Dress Renaissance

The two piece wedding dress has finally been reinvented! Gone are the Victorian corsets with their matching princess, pick-up skirts, and in come the easy, effortless chic of haute couture crop tops and lithe, flowy skirts. This oldie has become a true goodie, as this wedding dress fashion allows for lots of creativity and movement. On runways this spring, the two piece dresses were adorned with crystal, lace, and fringe, and in all sorts of beautiful combinations. We are still seeing inspiration from the 1920s garçonne/flapper era, but with a touch more skin and bourgeois embellishments.
