Autumn has appeared yet again and before we know it winter is already approaching. Not only does it mean the weather will get more chillier but London Fashion Week is getting closer. rolls back around everyone’s mind begins to try figuring out exactly what everyone will be wearing next for SS14 spring/summer. So to make it all that easier for you, I’ve rounded up all the hottest trends you need to know about for Spring/Summer 2014, how to wear them, and what to wear them with.
If you don’t already own a moto jacket, GET IT NOW!! Its one of those items that never really dies out, it will be a good investment as they always come back in to style. This stood out above everything else as the key London Fashion Week item, shown in collections from Tom Ford, Erdem, Antonio Berardi and Mary Katrantzou. Mixing textures, metallic finishes, prints, and tooled leathers helped these jackets to really stand out, while size varied wildly from superslim and fitted to dramatically oversize. That can change from person to person, styles and even body types, as long as you feel comfortable in your own style you are BEAUTIFUL ….
Dashes of girly beautiful bubblegum, rose, and carnation pink dominated the runways of Burberry, J. JS Lee and Temperley, showing us three very different ways to wear this bright colour and mix of textures, lengths that a lot of women might not dare to wear. ITS BACK IN, so don’t be scared to embrace the brightness of the session. You can perfectly incorporate this trend without making it OTT but adding a simple nude and pink combined shoe perfectly for a cute spring day.
That ’70s Show
Plenty of designers paid subtle homage to the 70s, even though it plays a last session card, its stuck strongly on the catwalk. Matthew Williamson showed button-up midi dresses, Topshop Unique sent Cara Delevingne down the runway in hot pants, and Orla Kiely showed ’70s girl scout dresses. The big wedge heel perfectly encapsulates everything about this era with tone hues, browns, navy blue and dark greens.
