In May, we were lucky enough to host a trunk show for one of the favorite bridal lines among stylists and Bitsy Brides: Tara Keely. Part of the JLM design house and designed by Lazaro Perez, Tara Keely is for the sophisticated and timeless bride who is not afraid to make a statement.
The new season is To. Die. For. The girls here were literally drooling over the newest designs. The official pictures are not out yet but I just couldn’t wait to give you a taste so…. without further ado…. here are five things to expect from the new season of Tara Keely.
Sleeves were a rare luxury among bridal designers over the past several years but they have been making a comeback in the most recent seasons. In my opinion, the JLM design house (which includes Tara Keely) does sleeves better than most. You will find dainty cap sleeves and long, lace, masterpiece sleeves in the newest collection.
2 – Sparkle
If you thought it was impossible to have a sparkled dress without looking like a chandelier or like a 4 year old playing dress up then you have never tried on a gown designed by Lazaro Perez. With cascading waves of sparkle and perfectly placed belts or jewels, each dress with the addition of shine is made with the utmost regard for taste and sophistication.

3 – A-Line Perfection
There is a reason it is the most requested silhouette. ALine gowns flatter nearly every body type. They are feminine and elegant without being hard to manage or overdone. A Line is classic and gives you a lot of wiggle room to show your personality with the gown design, which is exactly what happens with a Tara Keely gown. With a design channeling Princess Diana hanging next to a bohemian beauty, there is a gown for everyone in this collection.
4 – Lush Materials
Tara Keely always has amazing fabrics and finishes but this season is particularly spectacular. I am in love with the use of Silk Shantung I am finding. Shantung is an amazing material with just enough luster and the perfect amount of drape to easily be worn in a formal or whimsical affair.

5 – Bohemian Charm
I am particularly critical of boho-style dresses. Just not my favorite. I will however have to admit that I am drooling over Tara Keely’s bohemian additions to this season.
Get ready ladies, this season is going to be AMAZING!
Until next time,
