Trends to look out for in 2014
With so many trends to leave behind in 2013, come a whole new range of styles to look forward to. We help you get your closet ready for the coming year with all the trends to look out for in 2014. If your New Year’s resolution is to stay fashionably fabulous, then read on.
Pretty pastels were very much on-trend last year till they got replaced by eye-popping neon. These cute, powdery-tones of pale lavender, sorbet yellow and baby blue are back in the coming year on anything from jackets to dresses. Super girly, soft pastel shades can add an instant dash of happiness to your wardrobe and make you look as delicious as a pretty macaron.
Sexy, mid-riff baring tops continue to rage in the coming year. Like many of us, if you have plucked up the courage to finally buy a few trendy crop tops and flaunt your navel, this is some good news for you. Designers like Alexander McQueen have used crop tops prominently in their Spring collections for 2014. If you haven’t already, get your hands on these flirty tops now.
Go Longer Than The Mini
Ladies, in the coming year you have a lot more options to choose from when it comes to skirts. This is great for those who aren’t very comfy in super short skirts that are also not practical in all situations. Knee-length skirts are set to be a trend to look out for, so pair them with your crop top to not have to reveal a bit too much. Make sure your skirt ends just above your knee or in the middle of the knee, not longer or it will make your calves look longer. Also, a longer ankle-length skirt is another option that it set to be very fashionable in the coming year. It’s in the middle of a midi and a maxi. Pair them with short, sleeveless tops to add a bit of sexy to them.
Breezy and comfy wide-legged trousers are going to be hot next year. High-waisted and chic, not only are they very easy to style but they also help elongate your frame and make you look leaner. Win, win right?
Of course, this being Pantone’s colour of 2014, it’s pretty obvious that you should be stocking up on all things dazzling blue to rock the trends for next year. Any piece, be it a clutch or a necklace in this colour is bound to up your ante.
A simple way to stay stylish in the coming year is with pleats on your dresses and skirts. Very feminine with an adorable charm to it, pleats can also be seen on metallic and sheer fabrics and chunkier silhouettes for an edgy twist to this romantic style.
Cropped jackets with a boxy silhouette need to be added to your wardrobe stat. Not only are they great for layering looks but also look fab on anything from bodycon dresses and your fave jeans to your work outfit.
