Stylists’ Picks: Trends for Spring-Summer 2014
In the world of fashion, trends change faster than you start following them. To get you some clarity on what’s currently in, we spoke with Miss Chase stylist Mehek Oberoi. She has picked out some gorgeous trends for Spring-Summer 2014 exclusively for the Indian audience. Take a look:
This citrus color has been making its rounds, and is perfect for springtime. Celebrities like Sofia Vergara (Of Modern Family fame) and Miranda Kerr (Victoria’s Secret Model) have been seen sporting this hue with flair. It’s an absolutely fabulous color to sport, and one may experiment with so many shades apart from the usual tangerine. Play with vermilion, which is a fiery combination of orange and red, or even a more feminine shade of the color such as coral, which is a stunning mix of orange and pink.
Iridescence refers to the showing of luminous colors that seem to change when seen from different angles. Iridescent clothing and accessories really make a statement. This bold yet super fun trend is really catching up. Music sensation Rihanna was seen sporting this look on two separate occasions.
Tip: Wear this trend in the form of an accessory (shoes, bags or jewelry) if it seems too overwhelming as an entire outfit.
Ripped Skinny Jeans
Ripped skinny jeans have become a celebrity staple! Stylish, and oh-so-chic, these are a fun quirky twist on the usual skinny fit jeans/jeggings. Victoria’s secret supermodel Miranda Kerr pulls off a casual chic day look with ease. The best part? These are versatile too, if styled right. Pair these with a basic tee, a nice pair of loafers or wedges, and an oversized handbag for the day. For a sultry night look, pull out your stilettos, a dressy top (A corset, shirt – anything!) and don’t forget to add accessories and bright lips to complete your look. This piece is a must have in any fashionista’s wardrobe.
Springtime is the best time to sport floral prints and gorgeous pastel shades. Soft, feminine colors like pink, peach, lilac, and mint are perfect for the season. Take a cue from pop sensation Katy Perry, who’s looking fresh as ever in a mint bodycon maxi dress. Looking for something pretty in pastel?
All accessory lovers are in for a treat! Body jewelry is meant to accessorize different parts of the body like the shoulders and the waist. These oh-so-exotic pieces are statement makers, and are the perfect accessory for a special night out. Pair your favourite body jewellery with a fitted black tank top, ripped skinny jeans/ a black bodycon dress, and metallic stilettos for that extra oomph!
Bright lips give you a wonderful fresh look – a pop. Pop colored lips are perfect for the night, but may also be worn during the day with subdued eye makeup. Wear bright corals, oranges, reds, and shocking pinks during the spring for that something extra. We love how style icons Blake Lively (Gossip Girl) and Adriana Lima (Victoria’s Secret Supermodel) have rocked this look.
