Elevate Your Bridal Look With a Bolero

Elevate Your Bridal Look With a Bolero

Ever hear of a bolero? This short, cropped jacket or shrug serves as a versatile and stylish accessory to complement your sample wedding dress. 

You might be wondering how to wear such a unique piece. Here's a closer look at what a bolero is and how to pair it with your sample wedding dress.

What is a Bolero?

A bolero is a type of jacket that typically covers the upper part of your torso, including your shoulders, arms, and upper back. 

It can be made from various fabrics, such as lace, satin, tulle, chiffon, or even faux fur, to match your dress and the season of your wedding.

 Boleros come in a variety of styles, including long-sleeved, three-quarter-length sleeves, cap sleeves, or sleeveless options.

How to Pair a Bolero with Your Wedding Dress

Consider the Season: Are you having your wedding during the warm or cooler season? If you're getting married in a cooler climate or during the fall or winter, a bolero can provide warmth without sacrificing style. If it’s warmer, consider lighter, breathable fabrics.

Match the Fabric: Choose a bolero that complements the fabric of your wedding dress. For instance, if your dress is lace, a lace bolero will create a cohesive look. Satin boleros work well with satin gowns, and so on.

Wedding Dress Silhouette: Ensure the bolero style complements the design of your wedding dress. For a strapless dress, a bolero with cap sleeves or three-quarter-length sleeves can be elegant. A bolero with a higher neckline may pair well with a V-neck or scoop-neck dress.

Embellishments and Details: Pay attention to embellishments and details on the bolero. If your dress features beadwork or embroidery, a bolero with matching or complementary details creates a harmonious look.

Pop of Color: Don’t be afraid to play around with color for a striking bridal ensemble! Choose a bolero in a subtle, complementary shade. Soft pastels, blush tones, or even a hint of metallic can be a stunning addition.

Sizing and Fit: A bolero should be comfortable to wear, allow for ease of movement, and not restrict your arms. Professional tailoring may be necessary to achieve the right fit.

Hairstyles: Consider how your bolero will interact with your veil or hairstyle. It’s always a good idea to discuss with your hairstylist to find the best way to secure these elements without affecting the bolero's fit. You can also bring your bolero to bridal appointments to get a clear idea of how your look flows.
