SPRING/SUMMER 2014 TRENDS


90s

I’m a 90s girl! (well, I was born in that decade ;D) To be honest, when I see the current fashion and trends in magazines, stores and other social medium, I don’t recall seeing it when I was younger. Perhaps I was too young to remember or be observant to the least. Right now, I am loving the 90s trend such as the “mom jeans”, crop tops, daisy prints, maxi or midi dresses and skirts and so much more. I’ve been watching the original, Beverly Hills 90210 to get inspiration on how people dressed back in the days in comparison to today’s fashion. I didn’t realize that people do show off their bellies in the 90s and is accepted by the society. I thought it would still be conservative as in the previous decades.

2 Piece dress

I love the 2-piece dress trend. Of course, you can get away with a skirt and a top to make it look like a dress. This current trend is pretty particular… meaning there’s a specific style of this trend that makes it hot right now. Having a crop top with a body con skirt or a maxi skirt is the perfect mix to this trend.

Everything A-Line

A-line skirts or cuts can both satisfy a girly or a sporty look. It really depends on which type of material and style you choose to make it work. A-line skirts have been on trend for 2 seasons now but it just flatters and makes the look fun and flirty.

Business Chic

The first thing that comes to mind when the word business fashion is being associated with is monotone, strict, and overall boring. Nowadays, fashion has completely taken it to the next level. Obviously in the corporate world, we still have to respect the power suits and keeping the colors to black, white or grey. However, there are pieces that definitely are both modern and at the same time will meet the standards of your workplace.

Statement jewelry

And when you thought that statement jewelries are so last year… guess again! It’s back. Sticking to jewels that have a metal (any variation of gold or silver) is definitely ideal this season. When those jewels have metals and a pop of color mixed to it, that’s the perfect trend to watch out for. Sometimes we take jewelries for granted (or I guess most of the time), but it definitely completes or even rejuvenates the outfit. You can wear a simple basic top and wear a different statement necklace everyday, and it will look like you changed outfits but in reality, you didn’t.
