During the Spring, there are many trends that always repeat: brighter colors, lighter fabrics, looser more relaxed fits, and pastels. These trends cross the gender lines. Spring just makes people want to be brighter, lighter, and more carefree and clothing is often used to relate that feeling.
For Spring 2014, the designers pretty much agreed on the standard trends and added a few extra; such as foliage, different layering techniques, and the color white. I know, I know, it’s only October, but it’s never to early to start looking ahead for the next fashion season.
After looking at all of these collections, it all starts to run together sometimes. That’s why I love Rebecca Minkoff. Her collection has a sporty, fresh, vibrant feel to it. It makes me yearn for the Spring when Fall hasn’t even started yet. And I love the Fall. I also loved that the models all carried purses and strutted down the runway like they were about to keep right on walking out onto the sidewalk. Well played Rebecca.
I thought this collection was okay. The jumpsuits were nice. There were a lot of separates that I liked. The tops and jackets mainly. And even though I’m not brave enough to wear a honey mustard yellow pants suit, it looks fabulous.
Jason Wu knows how to make a lady look good. This collection creates a look that has a tough exterior , yet it’s made with soft, shimmery fabrics. Kind of reminds me of Angelina Jolie pre-Brad Pitt and kids.
I’ve always loved Nicole Miller’s clothing. Her collections are always a little edgy, very stylish, and somehow encompass all the different personality quirks I have. If I want to look refined, yet tough, I may choose the leather leggings, chiffon blouse and embroidered jacket look. Seeking a more demure look, any of the dress or skirt and top combos would work. It’s all very good and very wearable.
