Boho brides are probably already well aware that 2016 is the year of the fabulous fresh floral crown, but alternative fashionistas and classic brides will also be delighted to hear that the trend has extended to fit-for-royalty crystal crowns and statement-making tiaras! Bridal crowns are back in a big way, but not as you know them. Grecian style leafy chaplets, art deco headpieces, brilliant star-burst hairbands and contemporary crystal circlets are appearing on the catwalks and on the aisles as brides look to add a really unusual statement piece to their attire and establish an all-new heirloom to pass down the generations.
We got a taste of the trend last year as Inbal Dror sent models down the catwalk in breathtaking Keren Wolf crowns and gave Frowers something to write about. This year top couture designers such as Naeem Khan and Galia Lahav sent Instagram into a frenzy with towering tiaras of all shapes and sizes in their Spring/Summer 2016 shows. Big names in couture crowns include Viktoria Novak, Jennifer Behr and Jannie Baltzer, while more accessible versions can be found by independent designers on Etsy and at home here from Allure.
