S/S14: What to expect for trends!

The new year is finally upon us; which means that we can finally stock our wardrobe with the new spring and summer 2014 collection. Last year, we saw heaps of neon, bright colours and Orientals prints – but this year, we have a few new treats instore!

The development of the feminist:
This winter, we were introduced with the androgyny, feminist trend which saw us dabbling with suit trousers and shirts. During the presentation of London Fashion Week, brilliant designers such as Louis Vuitton and Saint Laurent debuted that they are pushing this trend even further; making suit trousers a necessity in our wardrobe.

Pastel Madness

Candyfloss pink and baby blues have all made an appearance in LFW; promising to be one of the top trends. Chanel and Balmain have introduced these beautiful colours into their tweed suits, while Miu Miu and Olympia De Tan have mixed it up by adding cute prints such as cats to their dresses and jackets.

Lace to Lace

Valentino is famous for his use of lace in his designs, and this year it is set to be big on the high street. The theme is very romantic; mixing in deep reds and blacks for a gothic feel. Lace dresses and skirts will be hot this summer, being teamed up with open toed heels.

Think Aztec

Last year, Aztec patterns were popular on midi dresses – and LFW saw a twist to the popular trend. Famous designer Alexander McQueen based most of his campaign around this trend – mixing in beading with heavy feather details. However, this trend can be easily adapted using heavy accessorising – which can be seen in the collection by Celine, who used chunky, bright necklaces.
