Is *This* the Premier Wedding Dress Trend for 2019?

The most exciting part about bridal fashion week? Easy: the fabulous trends that emerge and make us wish we could get married all over again. For the fall 2019 collections, that trend was without a doubt the poet sleeve. Demure, ethereal and unexpected, this romantic design pays equal homage to Captain Jack Sparrow and Audrey Hepburn's infamous Balmain gown. (Like, in a good way, guys.) Below, all the swoon-worthy spots where statement sleeves dominated this season.  

Tiffany & Co. Released a New Engagement Ring Cut and We're All Like, 'Hint, Hint'

At Ines Di Santo's dreamy show, not one but two poet sleeve, off-the-shoulder dresses paraded down the runway. (We were especially smitten by this 3D embroidered stunner.)

Two poet sleeve looks surfaced again at L. Wells' presentation. In addition to a trend-forward blush number, this classic ivory dress (which ahem, looks all kinds of comfortable) totally stole our hearts.

Dig the trend on a subdued scale? This slinky frock from Halfpenny London's presentation proves that less poet sleeve can be so much more.

For a modern and slightly bohemian interpretation, look no further than this sleek, floral Alexandra Grecco gown. Swoon.

Poet sleeves had serious volume at Hungarian designer Daalarna's presentation. (And how about that whimsical butterfly embroidery?)
