We can always count on the Oscars to bring some amazing fashion trends our way, and this year’s ceremony certainly delivered. From classy white gowns to exposed corsets, here are five fashion trends that ended up stealing the show at this year’s Oscars.

Positively Bridal

If we had to pick the biggest trend at this year’s Oscars, white dresses would take the cake. The list of celebrities wearing positively bridal gowns is pretty much endless, and it includes Michelle Yeoh, Halle Berry, Tems, Mindy Kaling, Michelle Williams, Sofia Carson, and many more.

Exposed Corsets

Dresses with subtle, exposed corsets were also all the rage at the Academy Awards, with the likes of Lady Gaga, Mindy Kaling, Halle Bailey, and Zoe Saldana embracing this trend.

Two-Tone Outfits

Color blocking and two-tone outfits were a huge deal at the Oscars. Janelle Monae, Cate Blanchett, Monica Barbaro, and Fan Bing Bing gave us some of the very best two-tone looks this year.

Black & Silver

Dazzling black dresses with silver undertones were also huge at the Oscars and the Vanity Fair after-party, with Ava Duvernay, Jessica Chastain, and Nicole Kidman embracing this trend.

Sea of Ruffles

Ruffled and tulle dresses looked more dramatic than ever at this year’s Oscars, and Florence Pugh, Cara Delevingne, Angela Bassett, and Tems changed the way we look at this trend.
