ALL THINGS FASHIONABLE 2014
As we bid adieu to the year that just went by, it’s time to have a glimpse of some of the international trends that really stood out and made their statement in the domain of fashion. Time to go down 2014’s fashion lane and be updated on the popular trends that made the rounds:
1. Sporty Chic
From the runways of luxury brands like Chanel, Dior to designer collaborations with Adidas, the fusion of sportswear into mainstream fashion definitely commanded attention. The trend definitely stood out for women who were fashionable yet comfortable in their own skin. Mixing glamour with the athletic attitude seemed to be the flavor of the year.
2. Lacey affair
Feminine and ethereal, lace can never go out of style. With lace, one can choose to be subtle or go all the way sheer. Apart from the classic shades of white and black, pastels can also seem to be a great option as shown in the above Burberry Prorsum collection. For an evening affair, lace can add to the dramatic effect with darker shades as shown from D&G S/S 2015.
3. Floral Shower
The year 2014 saw an array of collections showcasing botanical fantasies in their own ways. From 3D flowers to contrasting floral patterns, no stone was left unturned when it came to floral fashion. A popular street style choice, many fashionistas were spotted wearing floral print skirts pants and nail art in the summer.
A trend that has been carrying forward from the recent years, the Peplum form, whether top or bottom has been a popular choice this year. The peplum silhouette flatters a variety of body type’s especially curvy women. They can be worn in all the seasons and are available in a variety of fabrics. A must have for every woman’s wardrobe, the peplum seems here to stay.
The trend catching up lately with a concept of not standing out from the crowd, normcore seems like the next fashion revolution. With jeans, sneakers and a simple tee being its staple elements, normcore fashion somehow takes me back to the 90s fashion street. One of the most googled trend of 2014, it is highly evident in street style especially the hard-to-miss celebrities!
Cerulean blue seemed to be a favourable shade on the designer’s canvas. Seen on the runways of Burberry, YSL & Rodarte it became a hot trending colour of the year.
