Summer Fashion Trends to Watch

by Alana Jones

Summer is almost here and the party season will soon be upon us. Time to ditch the black boots and (god forbid) the uggs, and bring out your bare legs, summer frocks, and strappy heels.

The stores are now bursting at the seams with warm-weather styles, so let us take a look at the big fashion trends for summer 2013/2014...

White on White - has not been such a big trend for a long time. From head to toe, white is HUGE this summer - perhaps THE big trend to watch. From clean, crisp white tops, to asymmetric skirts or tailored trousers, to strappy heels in white - the look is fresh and hot-weather friendly.

Black and White - easier for most of us to pull off than white on white, black with white is a classic monochrome look. Just be sure that for summer, focus on white as the dominant color - black can be heavy, unless light fabrics, such as silk or sheers are used.

Graphic and Digital Prints - a trend which we saw last year, digi-prints look to be here to stay - for now. From digi-florals, to more industrial prints, this is a popular look for tops and dresses and allows for an explosion of color. Neons, graphic prints; almost anything goes.


Fashion Trends Spring Summer 2014 - 2014 Is A Blue Year, Fashionistas!

by Auburn Silver

Fashion is an industry that is fast growing and changing and there are always some interesting new ways to fashion yourself for the coming year. The Spring/Summer fashion trends for 2014 are all about ladylike skirts, animal prints and nature. The color to wear for 2014 is blue.

The runways for 2014 spring and summer fashion is all about nature. The general rule to follow when it comes to the fashion trends for the New Year is 'be natural'. Throughout all the fashion shows held in New York City, Paris and London, the theme was 'nature'. Major design brands are celebrating the natural woman, as the models wore less make up, lesser accessories, and light garments. So what are we in store for in 2014? Here's a summary of what went down at the major fashion shows.

Since the theme is 'natural', women should wear pastel shades and garments that are figure skimming. The major color theme presented by the fashion brands was a pastel blue shade. You can even experiment with the range of light blue colors like sky blue, powder blue, and light aquamarine. Blue was accompanied by accents of orange and coral red. White is still a hot trend for spring and summer clothing and black also made its mark for evening wear.

So what are the kinds of clothing designs that are trendy for spring/summer 2014? It is mostly figure-skimming attire like loose trousers and flouncy or ruffled tops. High waisted billowing pants are the style deals for 2014 while the dresses are somewhat the same as last year; we are looking at Maxis for 2014.

Backless ladies tops and feminine frills and pleats will be the style quotient of the year when it comes to the lovely range of tops for girls. Shorts for girls and tie around styled tops will make summer of 2014 sensational. Capris or pants will continue to be equally stylish wear. Denims shall dominate the fashion scene as usual. Designer Kurtis, wrap around styled tops will take a further leap or button down shirts will be the choicest tops to add to the glamour in combination with trousers or jeans.

Skirts have not really made big in the Indian fashion scenario. However, 2014 may surprise us with skirt fashion swishing in through the doors of fashion once again. Just below the Knee, ankle length skirts or pencil skirts with lovely blouses topping off the outfit to perfection may be on the top of the shopping list of the girls clothing.

Beautiful white for that serene look shall continue to be the best hot choice this year too. Black and white or black and gold combos will be a hit. Moreover, bright sunny yellows or oranges will be the top colors of the year. Nature prints and floral motifs will be in vogue. Heavy embroidery will be in high demand for the lovely fashion conscious girls to give them a fashionable outfit with that classy touch.
