When it comes to next year’s royal wedding, there is one thing that is on everyone’s mind: what will Catherine Middleton’s dress look like? To date, Catherine’s sartorial choices have seen brands like Issa London and Topshop sell out of certain styles within days after the princess-to-be has been spotted in one of their designs.
No doubt Catherine will choose a dress that reflects her own personal style, as well as keeps with tradition. While we await the news what Catherine will wear when she says “I do” to both prince and country next year, let’s have a look at the trends for the coming season.
With a little help from Alibaba.com, we can say that the ideal style next year will be a mermaid shaped gown in lace with a halter-neck, the latter being flattering for all figures.
Out of all wedding dress inquiries made to Alibaba.com, over 50% related to mermaid dresses and an astounding 60% for gowns made out of lace.
Will Catherine prove these findings correct, or will she opt for something completely different? Guess we’ll just have to wait and see.
Alibaba.com is the world’s leading e-commerce platform for small and medium business to trade internationally. It supports businesses such as apparel retailers, gift shops, etc. to stock their shelves, and has a global membership base of more than 56 million users with 830,000 in the UK alone.
