The Modern Bridal Trend That's Blowing Up on Pinterest
Ball gowns are an obvious go-to for weddings, but according to data from social platform Pinterest, tuxedo dresses could usurp the traditional style. On Pinterest's list of the top-100 emerging searches of 2019, the term "tuxedo dress" crept into the spotlight with a 99% increase in searches this year.
The photo-sharing website credits the increase to the ever-growing search for more gender-neutral options. In the roundup of the biggest Pinterest trends of 2019, the words "androgynous wedding wear" were also a big fashion winner, with a 51% jump in interest from the year before.
Tuxedo-inspired dresses aren't just for brides looking for an alternative to traditional ball gowns. Celebs like Rihanna, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, and Sofia Richie have all incorporated the sexy look into their everyday lives. Some styles are super short, while others are long and glamorous with thigh-high slits.
And not every bride wears white. Just look at Sarah Jessica Parker, who wore a black dress on her wedding day. If you're thinking about going over to the glamorous dark side, follow Meghan Markle's lead, whose sophisticated black tuxedo dress is back in stock below.
