While pants weren’t quite as plentiful as they were for spring, there was one show-stopping ensemble at Alon Livne White that should satisfy those with a penchant for both drama and comfort.

The ghost of Grace Kelly was very much present at this season's bridal week—not in a creepy way, though. Designers were inspired by the elegant, '50s-style fit-and-flare silhouette she favored and offered royalty-worthy styles with fitted bodices and voluminous skirts.

The ruffles trend that's sweeping ready-to-wear is a natural fit for the bridal market—and the ultra-feminine styles put forward for next fall are the stuff dreams are made of. From frilly tiers to cascading waterfall flounces, the girly-girl will find plenty to love for her trip down the aisle (you know, apart from the person at the other end of it).

In diaphanous tulle, sheer lace, or even a shirred silk crop top, the shoulder-baring styles of the season are about as romantic as they come.
