The leaders in the fashion industry have been kind their consumers this year. The summer fashion trends of 2014 are all about light, airy, fun. That’s such a perfect combination for, well, summer. This year, the leaders especially love slip dresses, lightweight pants with baggy legs, and super cute eclectic shoes to add a bit of fun.
Slip Dresses: More specifically, the slip dresses of the nineties are back. These smart, elegant, and sophisticated versions of the spaghetti strap dress come in many lengths, materials, and colors this season. However, the richer the characteristic, the better. Thigh and ankle lengths are especially popular. Silk and satin were prominent in the runway lineup as were whites and pastels. Some dresses were pleated, while others were color blocked. Many appeared as a single article, while others were paired with equally chick long skirts.
Lightweight pants with baggy legs: Elegance was also the key on the runway for baggy-legged pants. These should be comfortable even in the most humid of vacation destinations. On the 2014 spring runway, most of these pants are made from 100% cotton, though more expensive fabric, certainly made appearances. Both tailoring and pleating were essential in the construction of these garments. Business colors were especially popular, such as white, black, and brown. The baggy-legged trousers of 2014 have been seen as part of a jumper and have been paired with such top styles as crops, buttoned-up white collared shirts, and even unbuttoned white collared shirts. Accessories for this article included neutral colored belts and hanging pockets.
Super Cute Eclectic Shoes: With all these solid colors, it’s not surprising that shoes should have a twist. This season is the perfect season to spice up your wardrobe with a unique pair of shoes that won’t clash with your other garments. Oz shoes are great for summer nights on the boardwalk, while colorful flats are perfect for a shopping trip, and, of course, every summer runway welcomes colorful, personality-filled sandals, which are perfect for beach trips.
The summer fashion trends for 2013 were a pleasant mix of the classic, retro, and modern styles. They provided opportunities for every fashion category. Ladies can find petty pleated slip dresses. Business women can wear tailored, baggy-legged pants. Boho lovers will have plenty to choose from in the eclectic shoe category. Perhaps even more importantly, everyone can find a reason to smile regardless of their labels–they will be able to wear chic, cool, and fun clothing.
