The end of every year brings a fresh new start for the upcoming one. Fashion is no different, and 2014 is here with latest trends and styles one must embrace and enjoy this year. While some trends of 2013 continue to linger this year too, while for some, one will need to make room for in their wardrobe.
Baring the mid-riff and showing the perfectly trimmed abs with the obsession of crop tops is incessant this spring season. And for those who do not dare to show-off, meshes and laces can help conceal and reveal some. Colored mesh inserts and overlays will be seen in tops, dresses, and skirts in 2014.
Fuller and long skirts will remain in vogue for the spring/summer of 2014. Feminine silhouettes in tea-lengths were seen on the runway showcased by designer labels like Christian Dior, Tracy Reese, and Roksanda Ilincic. 2014 is about time to ditch the skinny tight fit denims and embrace the new trend of loose, flared, and wide legged trousers. These comfort fit pants are here to stay and adorn the spring/summer fashion must haves.
Inspired from men’s fashion, shirts with collars and cuffs in contrast colors or textures and buttoned down looks will be popular for womenswear too. Pair them up with pencil skirts and big pants for a cool casual summer look. Sheer fabrics continue to lure fashion designers in the New Year too. The runway saw separates and full sheer garments by Burberry Prosum and John Rocha.
The colors for the spring/summer 2014 are light and soothing pastels. Floral prints for this season are big and bold. Dark, dull, and solid colored backgrounds with bright pastel flowers printed on georgettes and chiffons set the mood for a fashionable summer. Art inspired print and graphical illustrations in interesting designs will be flooding the fashion market in the spring/summer 2014. Pop art influenced motifs will be highlighted in garments like T-shirts and dresses.
Fringes in drapey georgettes and rayon fabrics will also be a big trend for this year. Oriental prints and delicate embroidery will enhance these styles. One fresh trend is of the shift blouse, which is a classy version of a T-shirt. The silhouette is boxy and the sleeves are elbow length and loose. It can be worn with skirts, trousers, and even with suits.
