Fashion Tarts | SS14 Trends

There’s nothing like new arrivals being strutted on the widows of shops, talk about getting us all worked up! 

It’s always very tempting to rush into stores and buy all the new looks they have their mannequins decorated with , but to ensure you don’t end up frittering away funds,  

fashion tarts’ has done some window shopping on your behalf.

Culottes are the trouser shape of the season and look great worn with high heel pumps and a crisp white shirt

Sheer was used by many designers this season. Wear with a sweatshirt on cooler days or a boxy crop top for summer.

Who can forget Burberry’s candy striped show finale under falling rose petals back in September? We are certain they will in no doubt be much imitated on the high street.

Trend Alert | The “Sporty” Look with Sneakers

Sneakers are no longer reserved for the gym. Comfy athletic footwear is now perfectly acceptable to wear with this season, and can even comprise a modernly cool going out outfit. Sports style is very relevant and many designers include athletic shoes in their collections. Trendy sneakers and gym shoes have become an outfit’s accessory. This season you can find sneakers and gym shoes for every taste, from classic and retro patterns to bold and unusual models.

According to the general fashion trends, neon and metallic colors are hot trends of women’s sneakers and gym shoes of the season. Some designers have even combined two trends in one model.

I currently love my neon Reeboks paired with jeans and a tee as I feel it adds flavor without even trying! And to top it off, you can really give your feet a break from heels while still looking fabulously fashionable!

Denim-Mania | 3 “IN” Trends

As mentioned in my previous blog, Denims have now taken a fashion curve/statement of their own. To add on to my Denim Prints’ blog, I have decided to list the top 3 denim trends that I feel are super eye catchers and a must have this season.

These are all styles that have been really popular among the celebs and denim lovers in general, so you should be able to associate very well with them.

 

dip-dye-ombre-denim

When ombre is done just right, it looks amazing. Ombre jeans are hot this season and goes well with most tops!Not only are ombre jeans original and eye catching, but they’re also highly flattering. Dark tones of denim at the thighs fading into lighter washes at the ankles elongate legs and slims hips. Vibrant ombre jeans in shades of pink, yellow, or baby blue are also fun alternatives to traditional denim.

polka-dot-denim

Say goodbye to your classic blues and have some fun with polka dot print styles! This print has to be the cutest and most fun for me. Not only do I feel super girly wearing it, it gives a subtle uplift to any look you pull off. Plus with polka dots trending right now, one can only think what better than to wear dots on dots. Give it a try!

coated-waxed-denim

Wax coated jeans are a hot fashion trend, gaining popularity thanks to street style bloggers. Girls, across all ages, have been pretty interested in wearing waxed jeans, especially in colous like burgundy, purple, chocolate brown and black, and here’s why:  They are a nice change to ordinary denim, provide interesting textural interest, and also a great substitute for leather pants at a fraction of the price. These jeans look dressier than ordinary denim, and the vibe is edgy, tough, rock ‘n’ roll and modern.

 

Which Printed Jeans Are You?

Printed jeans were a huge trend in 2012 and in 2013 they are still in. Denim has now gone a step further with the addition of prints. From stripes and brocades to plaid and florals, printed jeans are the new statement piece.

Try fun animal prints or a more subtle print like plaid. You can mix prints with another printed top, for a head-to-toe textured look. Or if you are not into the bold looks, opt for a more neutral top to tone down the look. Printed jeans are a statement on their own, so accessories are not really a must!

Printed jeans are definitely a hot trend for fall, and won’t look super-busy, as long as you go for a top with similar colors or tones to the print on your jeans.

I personally love this trend and can’t seem to get enough of it!!!

Will you be or already are participating in this trend?
