25 Fashion Predictions for 2014

To kick off the new year we have put together a list of top styles to watch out for in 2014. Let’s start by taking a look back – in 2013 it was all about geometric prints, nautical stripes, and the comeback of the crop top. There was a move toward grunge and bohemian, with oversized tops, sweaters, and a messy hair don’t care attitude.

Now that we are in 2014 things seem to be shifting. Don’t be surprised if you see rich colored floral prints this spring –  radiant orchid is the pantone color after all.   The grunge of 2013 is now getting a glammed up makeover with leather and metallics. Details and embellishments will also be making an appearance on tees and blouses, and the boyfriend look is getting a touch of feminine chic.

Check out all our 25 Fashion Predictions for 2014 here…
