The trend for sleeves and modest silhouettes has not abated as seen in this year’s 2015 Bridal Market runways. From lace sleeves, to capes, high necklines and flowing skirts, the Bridal Market did not disappoint. So here are my favourites:
High Necklines: Sure there are no sleeves that accompany these high necklines, but I think with a bit of imagination they can be added, or they are a nice alternative to ‘plunging necklines’ for those brides who have a different standard of modesty.

T-shirt Style: For those brides again, who have a standard of modesty but are happy to forgo long sleeves, this trend is perfect! It can be at once fashion-forward or exude old-world elegance a la Jane Austen.

Designer: Pure romance complete with lace, satin and tulle. This is my favourite by Alberta Ferreti. Image Via: WWD.com
Lace Capes: Capes made their solid appearance on the Bridal Runway years ago and here it is again. I love it…there’s no logic to it!
Designer: Naeem Khan’s whole collection was just beyond stunning, here’s one with a lace cape. Image via: The Knot.
Designer: Alberta Ferretti
Designer: Monique Lhuillier. For those of you looking for a subtle and romantic cover up, these are perfect.
Long sleeves: In any form really, although lace seems to still be the preferred material for them.
Designer: This sweet, tea length dress features long, lace sleeves. What I actually love though is that the length shows off those amazing lace Louboutins!
Designer: Bar the plunging neckline and slight sheer quality, those embellished sleeves are amazing. Galia Lahav Gown. Image via: Brides.com
Designer: Ok, so again not the most ‘modest’ gown by my own standards, but what I LOVE is the subtle overlay on the gorgeous lace of the gown. No words really. Designer: Monique Lhuillier. Image via: Fashion gone Rogue.
Designer: This Pronovias gown features opaque sleeves. I would probably swap that belt for an embellished one though, just to add some sparkle.
Designer: The flutter sleeves on this Jenny Packham gown and the accompanying silhouette is just so pretty.
So there you have it. Another round of runways to inspire us all…
