Spring & Summer 2014 Fashion Trends – Part 3

24 Mar

As I promised, here is the final Style Statement I learned about from Arlene Goldstein, Belk’s VP of Trend Merchandising and Fashion Direction,  for Spring and Summer 2014!  There are three specific Style Statements that have been created to give you an idea of what to look for and to add to your current wardrobe for the upcoming seasons. I shared Feminine Charms  and Clean Slate in my previous two posts (if you missed them, make sure and go back and look at them).

This Style Statement is called Jetsetter.  This is a tribal twist with a multi-cultural mix.  Details will include zippers, pockets, studs, grommets as well as ornate embellishments, tassels, fringe and frayed edges.  In all three of the Style Statements I have shared with you there has been a various range of textiles being used such as jacquards, silks, sheers, and linen.

hawian-inspired-dress-320x336   This fit and flare dress from Cynthia Rowley is shown in the popular floral print with a tribal twist. You will see some print mixes this season as well.  I know it is not for everyone but if done correctly, it can be fun.

print-skirt-shirt-320x480   This Karen Kane top and skirt has cut-outs and is in navy, which is a popular color this season as well.

bright-color-bag-320x444  Again, we are seeing the popular floral motif in accessories as well as in clothing as shown in this Kate Spade style handbag.

necklace-bracelet-320x480    This is a great Kenneth Cole white top with a statement necklace of beads and stones.  Mixing materials in an elegant way really makes a statement!

parrot-bag-320x477  This novel Mary Frances clutch purse is a whimsical work of art and definitely makes a fashion statement.

leather-jacket-320x213    Animal prints are still very hot this season.  Shown here is a zebra print Michael Kors dress with a soft leather jacket.  It looks very polished and very chic.

tied-heels1-320x482  These great Dolce Vita  shoes combine leather, animal print, rope and twine for a unique artistic style.

gold-jewelry-320x480  This Vince Camuto statement jewelry gives an ethnic feel to this basic top and adds a splash of adventure and fun.

bold-jewelry-320x482     This Michael Kors jewelry is made of tortoise and chains.  The longer length can be very flattering to elongate the body.  Layering of necklaces is also a very popular trend right now.  

As I mentioned in my last post, just choose two or three of your favorite trends to add to your current wardrobe to update your look. Making sure they are in your best colors and styles for your body shape will be the key to a polished and very chic look.  Feel free to go out of your comfort zone and have fun with the different styles and accessories for the Spring and Summer seasons and express your individual Fashion Personality!   I don’t know about you but I am ready for Spring!
