As 2013 came to a close, the fashion world was predicting the future. Fall Fashion Week took over style capitals of the world and revealed glimpses of 2014 Spring trends for women. There were things you would expect for spring: flirty frocks, flowing fabrics, floral prints, and pastel hues. Of course, there were some pleasantly bold surprises as well: clothing with geometric print, heavily structured dresses, and loud and proud colors. It’s still the season to cozy up while chilling out, but we’ve compiled the top 3 trends that we think will make it big this Spring.
1. The Return of Collars and Buttoned Downs
Okay, so women’s buttoned down shirts and tops never really went anywhere, but a piece like an oxford shirt is constantly reinventing itself! People love putting fresh spins on classic pieces because it’s new, yet familiar enough for an easy transition. This coming spring we’re predicting to see these classic pieces being paired with bold printed skirts and pants, having contrasting cuffs and collars, and turned into wonderful shirt dresses. Basically, they’ve become something beyond a piece for pant-suits and office wear. For that, fashionistas everywhere are thankful!
2. Heavy Metal
For Spring, you should expect more metal than ever. The runways were filled with shimmery skirts, heavy sequined jackets, and metallic patterned tops. Instead of relying on jewelry and shoes to provide that hint of metallic flair to your outfit, you might just want to be adorned with it. Silver, gold, and copper just may be stealing the spotlight this time around.
3. Color Me Crazy
If there’s one thing you can expect from spring it’s that shapes and colors go in full bloom. With that said, get ready for pop and fine art influences. Anything from bold text, to abstract brush strokes, to political pop art can expected to be making it’s way to wardrobes everywhere. We have one brand that’s been ahead of the game. Desigual clothing is all about pushing boundaries, playing up the color, and bringing contrasting ideas together.
