So, here is my thought: Gossip Girl + Royal Wedding + McQueen at Met = Adventures in Bridal Millenary. Now, don’t get me wrong, I love a Cathedral length veil of tulle, or a nice, adorable birdcage, but I am particularly adoring the new wave of fashion forward headdress for brides. I see TONS of 1920’s influence, some 1930’s and a whole lot of Haute Hippy in this new wave of “veils”, and I love that brides are embracing them. I can’t help but think it’s our general growing level of comfort for headpieces, headbands and fascinators that has been all over the streets in the last few years, but whatever the reason, I just love it. Below, 8 of my favorite fashion forward headpieces.
