The new year will bring about some much needed change in fashion, and the fashion choices for 2014 are some of my favorites we’ve seen in a few years. This year, femininity will take priority over most fashion trends, and will change from fashion in years past dramatically. You don’t have to trade out your entire wardrobe though, so don’t worry. Just try some of these top new fashion choices for 2014 and you’ll be set to go!
1. TROUSER PANTS
I adore trouser pants and they are one of the best fashion choices for 2014 to make, no matter what body type you have. I’m preferable to them because they’re wide-legged and really help accent a woman’s shape, no matter what that is. They’re usually somewhat higher waisted, and very long, making them wonderful for elongating the leg and adding elegance to any outfit.
Cropped jackets, specifically collarless styles, are very popular this year. Paired with office attire or casual wear, cropped jackets are all over the runway right now. Since they’re a little more feminine than a blazer, they help to add a nice soft touch to a woman’s outfit, and they pair well with skirts, pants, or even over a dress.
Pastels are going to be huge this spring, specifically in the dress department. I have to admit, my top choice for dresses is always black, but this year, it’s all about the pastels. Pink, lavender, yellow, blue, and green are all going to be huge this coming year in the dress department, and even for the office. Branch off from the boring black and blue and try something a little lighter in color this year.
Skirts that hit mid-calf are another huge fashion trend this year. Sometimes known as tea skirts, these are extremely feminine and a much needed break from the shorter styles we’ve grown accustomed to in past years.
Plaid is a top fashion choice this year when it comes to choosing trendy prints. No matter what your outfit, plaid is in. Choose from shirts, skirts, pants, jackets- anything! All colors are safe too, and nothing is off limits. Plaid shirts, skirts, and jackets seem to be the most popular offerings for fashion this year, but anything is game, from scarves to pants.
Whether in a dress, skirt, or an actual sweater, sweater material will be huge this year. It’s even appearing in swimwear for summer as well. I think I’ll leave my swimwear as it is right now, but otherwise, I’ll have to pick up a few sweater pieces next time I go shopping!
