The biggest trends for spring/summer 2014 are:
Wide Leg Pants:
Say hello to flared trousers! Feminine variations in pleated chiffon, floral prints or wide denim hems are back for spring/summer 2014 and are the perfect way to inject a little 1970’s vibe. Wear with sky high heels to elongate your legs for a feminine style.
Carrying on from winter 2014, midi skirts are not only super flattering but versatile as well. Transition a black body-con midi skirt from the office to drinks by teaming with a sheer blouse and strappy heels. Wear casually for coffee with a basic tee and flats.
Leather and PU are still going strong with a sporty take adding PU splicing to bodycon dresses, contrasting binding, as well as seen in classic leather pants, jackets and mini skirts.
Floral and Photographic Print:
As reported in our latest trend report, floral and photographic prints are key for the upcoming season. Seen across skirts, shirts and jackets. Worn as matching two-piece sets or on their own these prints are a must-have. Photographic prints consisting of still life rivers or close ups of florals and greenery is a stylish way to integrate a unique touch to your style and looks fabulous when teamed with neutrals, blacks and crisp whites for the ultimate contrast.
Metallic is back and we love it! Seen in mini skirts, binding or panelling, metallic touches add a futuristic vibe to a summer wardrobe. SASS has embraced the trend in gorgeous blouses and shorts, while other brands like FATE have used it in subtle beading or embroidery.
Seen with contrast mesh paneling in formal midi dresses, or sweaters, PU tees and boxy shorts, sports-luxe is going strong for spring/summer 2014 leaving room for carefree and effortless styles. Wear sporty pieces with sneakers and leather for the ultimate cool girl vibe.
Think feminine chiffon blouses worn to work or day, or sexy black sheer camis for night, either way sheer is back in a totally classy way. Looks gorgeous teamed with statement jewels and metallic for a glamorous date night touch, or worn with classic denims and printed flats for a casual day look.
Shown in either vibrant colourful hues or as graphic monochromatic prints, it’s all about tribal style for spring/summer. Perfect addition to any summer wardrobe, this style looks fabulous with a boho infusion of faux fur and fringing or worn with classic prints for a fashion-forward look.
