Welcome to the dawn of the shortening of the hems. Not only are mini wedding dresses making a statement, but dainty birdcage veils and short blusher veils are back with a vengeance.

Just take a look at stylist Bettina Looney's bridal look at her fashionable Cape Town wedding. Donning an of-the-moment voluminous gown, Bettina showed off a piece from her custom collaboration with Khyeli: show-stopping modern birdcage veils.

No longer are birdcage and blusher veils reserved for vintage-minded brides. These short, mini veils speak to the roaring 2020s as they did in the 1920s. Thanks to modern embellishments, alternative colors and pairing pieces with cutting-edge gowns, the birdcage veil and shoulder dusting blushers are finally, again, fashion-forward
