Not in our wildest dreams did we expect to see a royal wedding featuring a minimalist gown. But it was sensational and it has already swooned over brides’ hearts all over the world. Markle’s wedding dress features three-quarter-length sleeves, clean lines, a bateau neckline, and a very simple silhouette.

Meghan Markle’s minimalist wedding dress just launched a new bridal trend

Designed by Clare Waight Keller for Givenchy, Meghan Markle’s minimalist wedding dress “epitomizes a timeless minimal elegance referencing the codes of the iconic House of Givenchy and showcasing the expert craftsmanship of its world-renowned Parisian couture atelier founded in 1952."

Kensington Palace adds in their statement about Meghan Markle’s royal wedding dress that the focus was “the graphic open bateau neckline that gracefully frames the shoulders and emphasizes the slender sculpted waist”. And we couldn’t agree more. The delicate off-shoulder detail adds to this gown’s irresistible charm.  

The Duchess of Sussex made a worldwide fashion statement. Minimalism now stands for ultimate luxury, sophisticated elegance and exquisite craftsmanship. It’s now set in stone that minimalism is all about modernism, simplicity, and femininity.
