Now that the frigid days of winter are coming to a close, one must be fully prepared to put away the leather knee-high boots and over-sized sweaters and welcome spring and summer trends with open arms. For the fashionista in training, it can be quite strenuous to visualize the artistic runway pieces in the everyday wardrobe. To assist in the conception, here are a few trendy looks and tips for piecing together the puzzle of the Spring/Summer wardrobe.
According to Elle magazine, a major trend from the haute couture to a “baller on a budget” is the cropped top. Depending on the look, the cropped top has returned with a classier vibe with some hitting the mid stomach region. Add this fashion savvy item with a high-waisted bottom and you don’t need a flat tummy to wear this trend with confidence. If you’re the person with “abs of steel” you’ll have no problem with the cropped top trend, in fact it will show off your hard work and dedication.
The wide leg pant also has come back with a vengeance. This piece is a hot look for Spring 2014, especially with the Bermuda and Capri lengths. With the pant being cinched at the waist, designers have made some with a structured leg and some have re-birthed the culottes. Either option you decide this spring, you will be looking tres chic.
Fringe is a popular look this spring and is being expressed on the runway, as well as in the stores. The bohemian look has re-birthed with the fringe uprising. For the free spirits who crave simplicity, the high-waisted jean short and basic top combined with a fringed kimono can breathe some life into your wardrobe this season.
Flower Power! The floral look is back! Floral prints have been a statement on the runways and can be found as a staple in the stores. Taking another trendy look, such as the cropped top, and combining it with a floral Capri pant can liven your spring wardrobe in a simple manor. For the bolder fashion divas, mixing the floral prints in a proper style can be the daring statement you want to make this season.
The sun is shining and the flowers are in full bloom, now is the time to ensure your wardrobe is prepared and blossoming as well.
