Spring is finally here! Even though here in New York, it might be a while before we can break out our fave cut-off’s and sandals but I am definitely ready to start incorporating some of these trends from the Spring 2014 runway into my transitional wardrobe!
Pastels are a must for Spring and this year they were seen all over the runway. The monochromatic look was seen a lot, but I also noticed a different approach to wearing pastels which is pairing it with an unexpected pop of a brighter color. Try pieces in differing pastel colors with a few bright pops of color as layering pieces, on the lips, and feet like DKNY, the monochromatic look with a contrasting shoe as seen at Burberry, or try one statement pastel piece, with the other main item in a contrasting bright as seen at Dior.
Baggy Bottom Babes
Don’t go breaking out your short-shorts just yet. Before it gets too hot to handle any extra fabric touching your body, try out this baggy bottom trend for Spring. All lengths and styles were seen on the runway from wide-leg and cropped at Proenza Schouler, bermuda shorts at Opening Ceremony, to baggy and belted menswear trousers at Hermes.
Although this sporty inspired mesh trend is nothing new this season, it sure is not going anywhere either. Layer a mesh skirt with boy shorts and a bralette for a daring look as seen at Milly, pair up with the pastel trend like Rebecca Taylor, or edgy meets boho with slouchy prints like Gucci.
Tea Length Time
Nothing says Spring more than a feminine skirt. And you can’t get much more feminine than a tea length one! Full and pleated skirts were the recurring styles on the runway seen in this length, so consider giving your go-to maxi an update with a little ankle grazing hem this season! Those metallic pleats are to die for at Proenza Schouler, try a matching floral skirt and crop top and you’re definitely ready for tea as seen at Tracy Reese, or a sunshiny yellow skirt paired with matching bow flats at Roksanda Llincic.
