Fashion trends inspire your wardrobe, but what about your home decor? This spring, freshen up your home with the season’s hottest clothing trends: nautical prints, florals, and gold accents.
It’s time to raise the bar, ladies–the GOLD bar, that is! And for spring nothing looks more sophisticated on bronzed skin than gold accents. From thick chains to studs, spikes, bars and cutouts, gold is the new standard in accessories.
Perforation is a very timely trend for spring/summer as it brings an overall lightness to heavy materials, which is important in the warmer months. A perforated bag will be literally lighter, making it ideal for travel, and perforated shoes will allow your feet to breathe while giving you coverage, which is especially convenient if you haven’t had time to get a pedicure. Plus, there’s almost always some type of athletic trend happening on the spring runways, and perforation falls into that category, mimicking the fabric of a sports jersey.
Two of the biggest trends this Spring are WHITE and PASTELS. No surprise there! But how to wear them—keeping your look modern and fresh—is totally new!
Pantone has announced its 2014 Color of the Year, and it’s Radiant Orchid! As we work our way into a new spring season, I have to say that this choice came as a bit of a surprise to me at first. After seeing all of the designers’ Spring ’14 runway collections last fall, Radiant Orchid was certainly not a hue that was wildly seen or used. We did, however, see tons of blush tones and pale pinks, white collars, sporty inspired articles, great metallics, and of course, what spring would be complete without a solid dose of florals? What I slowly started to realize, though, was what a fantastic color Radiant Orchid could be if used as an accent color with all of the fantastic spring trends coming our way.
2013 has really been a fantastic year for fashion. Believe it or not, there aren’t too many terrible trends that I’d like to see go, but I was able to come up with a list of five that I’d love to see the Times Square ball drop on…
The 1970s was an amazing decade! The assertion of women’s rights in that era was directly reflected in the fashions of the time. Yves Saint Laurent’s introduction of Le Smoking subverted the idea of what we gals ‘should’ wear — and in that era, of Gloria Steinem’s glorious activism – we started sporting denim and slacks, tossing those prim, restricting dresses to the wayside. They called it the “Feel Good” decade for more than one reason, folks!
Fall temperatures are finally upon us, and it’s time to start wearing all of the fabulous fall fashions we have been dying to bust out. From emerald green to cherry red, leathers to colored furs, and ladylike to ’90s grunge, there is one accessory trend that pretty much works with them all…metal accents. I love when you find a trend that is as diverse and versatile as this one. Regardless of your go-to look, color or fabric, you will certainly be able to find a way to incorporate this trend into any of your outfits.
