The reforming fashion suggests that this season isn’t going to be just another ordinary spring. This year fashion is all about power and confidence but there is a plenty of room for the feminine side too. We bring you a low down on what’s trending this season.
Orange colour is proving its staying power with vibrant shades available in dresses, bags, shoes etc, that scream ‘look at me’ to pretty pastels that are just, well, peachy! From strong bold statements to soft feminine looks, this colour’s versatile tones make it an ideal pick for spring/summer 2014. This feisty and festive colour has broken the stereotypical rules on the runway too and has allowed for experimentation with new looks and combinations.
The best thing about the pastel trend is that you can pick your most flattering colour and wear it with whatever silhouette excites you. From sporty baby pink bombers to a lilac dress, the sky is the limit on how pastel-happy you want to get. Pick your favourite from the rainbow of soft springtime shades and wear your pastel shade with metallics, embellishment and razor sharp knife pleats. Pastels indeed are quite fashionable for spring.
Fashion has taken an exotic turn with an explosion of tribal motifs all over. This print is all about looking beyond you, about taking ideas from other cultures. From tassels and trims, pleats and folds, native prints and embroidery, midi skirts and miniskirts to fringed satchels, chandelier earrings, statement neckpieces and strappy sandals, this print is so vastly eclectic.
WIDE LEG TROUSERS AND PALAZZO PANTS
Spring is the time to ditch those skinny jeans and gear up for a transition to the more universally flattering wide-legged look with easy to wear wide legged trousers or palazzo pants. While the wide-leg trousers that are leaner on the flare and are high-waisted can help elongate your frame by adding extra length to your body, the uber-chic palazzo is versatile enough to evolve from resort wear to business casual. Recreate the timeless effect of black and white together with your black palazzo pants accompanied with a white plain top or go for the wild patterns in these palazzos that are super groovy these days.
It’s time for the trend-spotters who feed on art to be on a high-alert for probably the most recognizable spring/summer 2014 trend is the paint swirls, colour blocking and brush strokes on clothes and accessories. This arty look is all about strong vibrant colours, interesting prints, bright geometric blocks and energetic painterly paints. The bold brush strokes on long tank tops, a rainbow of colours printed on dresses or injected into colourful knits and tweeds, painterly touch on accessories or the spray painted accessories and scarves with over-printed icons etc are making quite a fashionable statement.
