Separates are hot news / Here's my top 4 separate combinations, available here in the boutique. //

Separates are fast becoming a firm favourite, offering a bride new and exciting ways to adapt her 'wedding look'.

I've always been a huge fan of separates. My own wedding dress (which I walked down the aisle in 16 years ago) was made up of separates, a bodice, skirt with detachable train and jacket.

Our designers here at Julia Tasker Bridal Couture have cleverly come up with their own separate bridal pieces within their 2016 collections and these 'versatile items' can offer a bride a 'no fixed' look on her wedding day. Take a simple bodice and skirt, add a belt and jacket. Or remove jacket and belt and add a cashmere shrug. The combinations can be endless and also, extremely exciting. A bride could have not one, not two but possibly 3 different 'looks' on her wedding day!

Here are my top pick of separates from our designers and how to wear them.

Paloma Blanca //
This lace crop top and full skirt combo from the new Paloma Blanca 2016 collection is traditional but has a flirtatious twist. The cropped lace top with bateau neckline, 3/4 length sleeves, and sweetheart neckline on lining, is very cute. The full Dupioni skirt with box pleats, wide waistband and side pockets gives the 'look' a more Princess gown feel. OK, so if you haven't got a 'washboard stomach' and don't really fancy having that part of you waist exposed, simply have the crop top made longer so it sits over the top the skirts waistband. For the evening reception, pop the crop top off and add a beautiful ivory silk cami and pearl necklace instead, for a more elegant red carpet evening 'look'.

Stephanie Allin //

If you're opting for a more wistful boho look, than the 'Anna' dress with added fine lace overcoat by Stephanie Allin, could be for you. This simple satin spaghetti-strapped dress paired with lace coat would make any bride feel dreamy, as if they are floating on air. It's great to see that separates don't have to consist of small jackets over a dress too and I love the lace coat with it's long sleeves and button back detailing. The addition of the satin belt nips in the waist and gives slightly more edgy feel to this bridal 'look'. Again, remove the coat and belt in the evening to reveal a slinky slipper satin dress and you will be ready to party the night away.

Sassi Holford //

The fabulous Sassi Holford has been providing brides with separates through a number of her recent collections. Take one simple but oh so fabulously 'cut' crepe dress....the 'Jessica' dress can be styled numerous ways, your way! With the wide selection of separates that Sassi offers from her bridal collection and the numerous simple and elegant dresses. The combination of dress, jackets, coats, shrugs, belts and overskirts available in many different types of fabrics make the styling options endless - too infinity and beyond!

There are a number of separates here in the boutique just waiting to be to be put together in perfect unison by you. Which 'look' would you create?

Until next time.
