20 Stunning Latina Wedding Looks To Consider For Your Fall Wedding

When it comes to the big wedding day, every bride wants their look her best and Latina brides are no different. If anything we tend to go over the top with just about everything from the veil to hair and makeup, and of course, the dress. We have to stand out because, primero muerta que sencilla. 

For some novias, the wedding dress or suit is the most important choice a bride makes, and for others, it’s all about the accessories, especially those who want to use accents to highlight cultural traditions.

If you’re a Latina looking for a unique look for your wedding this Fall, here is some inspiration to make sure you look anything but sencilla on your big day. 

Embroidered Dresses

These dresses are beautiful expressions of traditional hand-sewn styles from Mexico to Peru and are unique ways to add color to a seemingly boring white dress. This is a special way to remind your guests how proud you are of your roots.

Flower Crowns

Not all queens wear tiaras. Channel your inner Frida Kahlo in a bright pop color and a beautiful flower crown to adorn your hair. These flowers can match your bouquet for a more cohesive look or you can go rogue and style a more earthy, boho look.

Elegant Vintage Goth

Today’s brides have no reason to play by the rulebook. Break the rules, rock your tattoos and wear whatever type of crown you want to wear. This bride walked down the aisle with a dark glam, gray hair and a stunning headpiece to complete her look.

Botas Vaqueras

Some of us are vaqueras and proud to show it. Many brides are incorporating a cowgirl theme into the wedding and the outcome is fun and picturesque. There are also many pros to having a cowgirl-themed wedding. For one, you get to opt for cowboy boots which means you’ll be square dancing to el Caballo Dorado all night in a great pair of comfy boots! Second, who doesn’t smile when they see a great pair of boots under a wedding dress?

Lacy, Sexy, Cool Jumpsuit

Big puffy dresses can get heavy and are not very practical. Brides have the option of rocking bridal jumpsuits like the one above. Some novias like to jump out of their dresses after the religious ceremony and party in a more relaxed outfit like this. And if we’re honest this is just as eye-catching as a big puffy dress.

A Succulent Bouquet

Bouquets composed of unexpected floral arrangements like wildflowers or succulents can make a statement. This is also another way to incorporate your culture into your wedding. You can use succulents, flowers from your country and even some nopalitos.

Crowns And Headpieces For The Reina That You Are

If you’re a reina and you know it, rock your crown. Forgo the traditional veil in favor of a crown or tiara to lend a unique elegance to your look.

Looking to sparkle from head to toe? Wearing gems on your feet are the perfect accent to a cool winter wedding (and an excellent “something blue”). Closed-toe shoes are a better option during the chilly fall temperatures.

Cultural Dresses

Mixing traditional elements with versatile styles, flower crowns can pull a whole bridal look together. For many brides, using a traditional dress reminds them and their families of how far they have come and how they plan to continue growing forward their culture embedded in their new family.

Goth Glam Bride

White isn’t for everyone. If darker hues are more your style, black might just be the option for you. Black dresses are the default when it comes to glamorous events and a wedding does not have to be any different. With unique accents, you can bring out your glam or bruja style into play.

Cathedral Veil

For those of you planning traditional religious weddings, the classic and elegant cathedral veil is always a gorgeous touch. These types of veils have been worn for centuries and they add an extra sentimental touch. In addition, if you don’t want your hair blowing in the wind, you can opt to have a light veil floating when you walk outside to make for a great photo opp.

Something Borrowed

If you are looking to incorporate a special element into your bridal look, consider wearing “something borrowed” from a family member like a shawl or jewelry piece that is meaningful and will give you confidence on your special day. Not everyone has their mother or grandmother around on their wedding day. Adding a piece that belonged to them can sometimes make the bride feel like that person is present.

Volume Fit For A Queen

For some brides, the bigger the dress, the better! A long veil and a wide skirt add the illusion of an hourglass figure. Plus, this is called a princess style for a reason.

Dashing Suit

If a suit is more your vibe, stand out in your own style with a dapper, well-fitted suit. Suits can be accessorized with a bow, tie, cool color accents and, of course, a great hair day.

Greek Goddess

If you choose comfort over style but also don’t want to look frumpy, a greek type of silhouette is the perfect option. Channel your inner goddess or fairy with flowy gowns and hairpieces that make you seem as though you stepped from a forest sanctuary and into your wedding.

Nails As Sparkly As Your Ring

Everyone will be staring at your hands on your wedding day. Some brides opt for a nude polish but if you’re the ultimate glam girl, you have the option to add even more sparkle to your hand. Most nail salons have gel polishes with glitter but there are others that offer appliques like mini stones or pearls.

No Such Thing As Too Much Lace

My mom has said that lace tends to look like you’re wearing a mantel. But traditional lace sheath dresses can be great for all body types and lend a romantic elegance to bridal looks. To avoid the tablecloth look, try a more delicate lace that isn’t bulky or heavy.

Flowy Beach Bride

If you plan to leave the cool weather for a beach wedding, you can do no wrong with a loose flowy gown, perfect for barefoot strolls and a seaspray ceremony. The style is effortless and the pictures are perfect — as long as you check the weather before.

Evening Veil

Bring a touch of vintage romanticism into your look with a vintage mesh veil that reveals your beautiful face. This is a lighter option that is much easier to manage than getting tangled in a six-foot veil.

Geometric Dress Design

Show off your personal style with a dress that hugs the curves and has a pattern all it’s own. These cutouts are what can make a dress more memorable.

Maluma Teams Up With Luxury Brand Balmain For This Must-Have Fashion Collection

Maluma Teams Up With Luxury Brand Balmain For This Must-Have Fashion Collection

It’s 2021 and we have no shortage of epic collaborations between some of the world’s biggest Latino stars and top fashion brands. Everyone from J Balvin and Bad Bunny to Cardi B and now Maluma have entered the fashion industry to sell a lifestyle. And people are buying!

Maluma and French fashion house Balmain bring us a limited-edition collaboration.

Colombian superstar Maluma has partnered with French fashion house Balmain to launch a limited edition collection that will be available from April 12 through June 1 in all Balmain stores, including brick and mortar and online.

The collection, which includes sneakers, blazers, t-shirts, pants and other ready-to-wear clothing, will also be available at Saks Fifth Avenue as of April 15.

The Balmain + Maluma line marks the first time ever the brand has designed a line with a celebrity. And it seems like the brand’s creative designer is pretty excited about the collab. Through photos on his Instagram, Olivier Rousteing referred to the reggaetón singer as his inspiration, captioned with supportive laudatory messages about merging their cultures and joint design process.

“Maluma, more than him being an incredible singer,” Rousteing notes, “[brings] a lot to the fashion community with his joy and his happiness and the fact that he’s always playing up his style from different kinds of houses from around the world, mixing different cultures as well… I think the collaboration with Maluma is obviously giving to Balmain and pushing the aesthetic more internationally.”

Maluma also seems to be pumped for the opportunity!

Although Balmain has featured other celebrities in advertising campaigns and runway shows, it has never actually enlisted a celebrity to help design a full, name-branded line.

The brand’s high profile, along with the haute-couture retail price of the collection, underscores how entrenched Maluma is now in the global fashion world and how valuable his endorsement and name is perceived by high fashion.

“It’s been one of my goals to work with a respected fashion house on a collection, but this journey was more exciting, as Olivier pushed me to design with him and sketch looks that I personally will wear off the stage and showcase high couture with a bit of Papi Juancho,” says Maluma, referencing both his album name and alter ego.

But if you want a piece of the collection be prepared to drop those coins.

Items in the Balmain + Maluma collection range from a black cotton T-shirt that retails for $495, to $1,500 high top sneakers to a $2,555 multi-color print bomber jacket.

Met Gala 2021 Is Happening And Amanda Gorman Is Set To Host The America-Themed Fashion Event

Met Gala 2021 Is Happening And Amanda Gorman Is Set To Host The America-Themed Fashion Event

It’s 2021 and the Met Gala is back this year – after being canceled in 2020 thanks to a pandemic – with superstar poet Amanda Gorman being eyed to host the fashion event of the year. Given the 23-year-old’s show-stopping performance at the inauguration, the theme fittingly will be a celebration of America and American designers.

The Met Gala will return in 2021 with a very special guest as host.

Vogue’s “Oscars of Fashion” famously takes place on the first Monday of May. However, this year it’s been pushed back to September 13, in hopes that life will have returned to something closer to normal by then.

Epic poet Amanda Gorman is reportedly in talks to co-host the event alongside Tom Ford, who is the academy’s president. The breakout star of President Biden’s inauguration, Gorman is on the cover of the magazine’s May issue and the subject of a relentlessly glowing profile inside.

The black-tie gala, which raises funds for Met’s Costume Institute, is normally fashion’s biggest night and sees guests from Lady Gaga, Jennifer Lopez and Cardi B to Jeff Bezos, Elon Musk and even Maluma.

The event was canceled in 2020 thanks to a global pandemic.

The world’s most glamorous party was canceled in 2020 because of COVID-19, which was (and still is) raging the planet at the time. There was a virtual event in place of the 2020 event, with celebs like Julia Roberts, Priyanka Chopra and Amanda Seyfried showing off their looks from home and stars like Mindy Kaling and Adam Rippon taking part in the #MetGalaChallenge, recreating looks from past years.

This year’s event will draw inspiration from all things USA.

The theme of this year’s Met Gala has not been announced, but Page Six says the night will be devoted to honoring America and American designers, following the 18-month-long COVID crisis in this country.

Recent past themes for the event have included “Camp: Notes on Fashion” (2019), “Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination” (2018), and “Rei Kawakubo/Comme des Garçons: Art of the In-Between (2017). And don’t forget 2016, when Zayn Malik wore robot-arms to Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology.
