Hi BABs! This week’s request comes from reader Stephanie, who wrote to us on this post and is inspired by several Hayley Paige gowns:
I’m a broke-ass-bride and I love Hayley Paige! I am trying to find a style with her signature layered, flowy skirt look, spaghetti straps with a v-neck, and some kind of shimmer or fun detail! My favorites of hers are the Laney, Chandon, and Pepper gown. All have a similar silhouette!
These Hayley Paige gowns all have a similar silhouette with an airy, modern, and romantic feel to them. They features a low-cut spaghetti strap neckline, natural waist and full tulle skirt with flounces to give the skirt shape and lightness. The Laney gown definitely has a bit of sparkle.
I’ll focus my search on gowns with full flounced and ruffled skirts. Anything with some shimmer details and straps (remember you can always add some) will take top priority. Let’s see them.
Hayley Paige’s Laney gown; $4,000-$4,500
And here are some options for separates, just pair these skirts with a fabulous top or bodysuit:
I think the first one there from Camille la vie / Group USA hits a bunch of aspects — the V-neck with straps, definitely some sparkles and WOW factor, and the horsehair trim skirt. But there are lots of dresses in this lineup to look at. I hope this helps you out, Stephanie. Happy dress shopping!
