10. Illusion Necklines
The trend of illusion necklines is making a strong comeback .
9. Bolero Jackets
For the past 10 years, bolero jackets was a style one usually saw on mother-of-the-bride dresses. Now the look is back. Both Carolina Herrera and Oscar de la Renta featured lacey, floral bolero jackets in their latest collections.

You can wear your dress with or without a belt for 2 different looks.
