5 New Spring 2014 trends we’ve edited with you in mind to get you started for the season ahead in style…
Are you ready to ditch those cumbersome layers and say hello to some much needed sunshine? We sure are!
After a long, dramatic winter season we’re more than excited to see the first weeks of spring upon us so what better way to celebrate the delightful change in weather with a few easy trends that will instantly update you? And lucky you as the season’s updates include practical, real world friendly styles from the classic sweatshirt to savvy sneakers and flat sandals.
The Rethought Pleated Skirt-
Breezey pleated skirts made a mark on many a runway for Spring in gauzy fabrications with unexpected design features. From classic shapes to asymmetrical, an emphasis on print and color-blocking made the seasonal standby look new. Take a cue from the collections and look for plays on print for a energized twist.
Cheers to new takes on the ever growing popularity of the amped up sweatshirt as it makes for one trend you can try anywhere at any budget. And the best part is that you can dress up even a standard gray sweatshirt with accessories and femme bottoms for a look that checks off both comfort and style.
Metallic finishes and fabrications made even the simplest of day dresses radiate with a glamorous sense of decoration. Standout in a sea of pastel this season and look for classic styles whipped up in muted metallics.
Gold jewels and ornamentation added a sense of decadence to many of the season’s best looks. From Valentino’s heavily ornate accessories to Balmain’s 90′s era chunky chains, going gold is a winning add on for now. So go ahead and pull out your favorite pieces and pile away.
And finally, the shocking return of the Ugly Shoe-
Are you game for a truly surprising runway trend that has comfort in mind? Rejoice as stylish and practical shoes have taken the forefront as fresh takes on pool slides and geek chic trainers make for great alternatives to heels, platforms and the ilk. Just be sure to keep the rest of your look put together to avoid an all out shlump fest.Published on March 25, 2014
