Welcome back to my new year fashion. What better way to start than with the top trends for the year 2014. All these collections have been featured in the spring collection of runway fashion
1) Boxy Crop Tops
We’re kicking off with a familair concept. Crop Tops!!! They took over our closets in 2013 but they aren’t going anywhere just yet. However you can expect a boxier silhouette as shown on the runways by Derek Lam, BCBG and Zimmermann. The main component to this trend is the sleeve length that hits just at the elbow but in a very loose boxy manner. A seamless trend with a fitted pencil skirt gives every woman her shape. It also includes a coated texture which is currently trending. So far i havent seen much of this style in the stores but checkout Zara which has a ray of colors and patterns. (Fedoras can be worn on bad hair days and are women’s new BFF :))
2) Lets Get Physical
Another trend a design that is all ready to let go of just yet is the athletic or sporty thing. This was shown by Marc by Marc Jacobs and Ralph Lauren. And then Gucci and Robin burn pitched in with a heavy focus on meshed pieces which is a great look. Stick to a monochromatic color palette which i think works best for this sort of thing. (The split in the shorts is a subtle nod to athletic wear) If you dont want to go all out athletic switch out the trainers for some casual chunky platforms and add a baseball cap to take it off the notch
3) Ladylike Blush & Pleats
This next look incorporates two big trends. Pleating featured by Celine, Michael Kors and Christian Dior. And the color for the season shown on Tory Burch it is nude pink head to toe blush. This look isn’t going to be for everyone and it is a bit harder to pull off than the previous trends. So you could definelty just beat up a pleated skirt with a plain white tee and sandals for a more wearbale everyday look. (When wearing one color opt for various shades) This knee length skirt is also a big trend but can become a little dated looking especially when doing an all blush outfit. So team it up with some salvatore ferragamos for a more modern twist.
4) Fringe Freedom
An emerging trend for the year 2014 is Fringe. Featured on runways at Emilio Pucci and Proenza Schouler. The best thing about this is it is easily adaptable to many different styles. It can give a grunge look and you can take inspiration from the glamorous gatsby era or keep it casual with a boho flare. (Layer necklaces perfect for festival vibes) Again this outfit features a currently trending piece with this kimono perfect for the weather in california 🙂 This trend can be added to your outfit subtly like shown here with the detail in the shoes.
