Trends for summer 2014

Here are five key trends for spring and summer 2014 that you can buy on the high street and wear now:

Image
1. Pastels

It’s not a huge surprise that pastels are fashionable for summer. Pastels always reappear on the Spring/summer catwalks because they are perfect for this time of year. Light fabrics and colours are just what we need after months of hibernating underneath black leggings and long, slouchy knitwear.

2. Tropical florals

Everything’s coming up roses! The floral trend is everywhere — dresses, tops, bottoms. Even for the guys! Add a floral scarf to a simple, plain look or go for a bright pop of colour with your handbag. Mix and match trends too – the perfect monochrome look can include prints

3. Art school and prints

Probably the most recognizable Spring/summer 14 trend is the paint swirls, colour-blocking and brush strokes. This look is all about strong vibrant colour and interesting prints. If there’s one way to guarantee eyes will be drawn your way in spring / summer 2014, it’s by indulging in some bold, wearable typography. Slogans, statements and even abstract lettering simply call for attention, as well as start conversations. Clothes do all the talking this summer!

4. Sporty with spice

The athletic trend has been lingering for a while, but this season designers have injected a high-fashion attitude into classic sportswear separates. Athletic-inspired chic fashions and footwear are making a run for it. Key pieces are leather joggers, silk bombers and anything with shear panels. The jumpsuit is a nice alternative to a dress for a summer wedding, or perhaps opts for a block heel for your work wear wardrobe instead of your winter boots. Remember, don’t try to work every trend, go with what suits you and your budget. If breaking out the gym gear is not for you, then opt for a more versatile piece such as the cropped top, which was styled in various ways.

5. Orange Is the new black

We doubt the creators behind the show Orange Is the New Black, realized they were predicting a major fashion trend when they dreamed up the show’s title. Orange being established the colour of the season; strong colours such as bright yellows, hot pinks and blue tones are also wardrobe must-haves, as observed in the fashion weeks. There were also plenty of neutral tones to wear back with these stronger tones, such as light tan and chalky nudes.

 

 

Working these trends in to your wardrobe needn’t be expensive or daunting, remember less is more. If you are unsure about incorporating a trend into your clothing, why not introduce it to your look in a subtle way such as through your accessories.
