Fall 2014 Fashion Trends

Spread the love

This fall’s trends present combined contrast. Wear sheer or woven, plaid or bold print, bright or winter pastel, mini or mid, wide leg or leggings, oversized coat or belted. Sound confusing? It is not when you see it on the runway.

Sheer fabric creates the sense of femininity without exposure. Sheer tunics worn over tanks and leggings provide a flow and movement of fabric, yet a visual illusion of form.  Choose a sheer short sleeved shirt worn over a tank or woven long-sleeved shirt to provide texture contrast.                           

Plaid teams with soft cowl or turtle necks.  Women with long necks look best in high neck turtles.  Those with short necks should seek lower cowl necks or mock turtle necks. Try asymmetrically-cut plaids that create a diagonal line for a slimming effect while still following trend.  Look for handkerchief hems of both shirts and skirts that give a contemporary look but a comfortable fit. 

Color pallets provide similar contradiction. Choose red paired with brown, royal blue, and black. Experiment with bold sixties-like prints or select a classic Jackie O look. 

Animal prints appear on any clothing or accessory. Don’t limit the design to leopard spots or zebra stripes. When winter proves to be as cold as predicted, wear a mid-length skirt and high neck top. Wear an animal print infinity scarf with an oversized coat.  Put on opaque tights and slip into ankle boots.  This season, choose your favorite look and wear it confidently.
