It’s time to put the shorts and flip-flops away and bring out the boots and sweaters. Every year, the trends change, and 2014 is no different.
Fall trends debut in the spring during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in New York City. The hottest celebrities and fashion designers gather to see what the hottest looks will be for the forthcoming season.
Soon after fashion week, celebrities are seen in the tabloids wearing the latest designs. Every day, fashionistas imitate these fashions. This is the process for how a fashion trend is born or re-born.
The clothing trends on deck for this year include oversized knit clothing, such as sweaters and scarves, vintage pieces, tribal prints, urban street style and polished leather.
Oversized clothing has been a trend for years. This fashion statement is being advertized with big sweaters, boyfriend T-shirts and chunky scarves.
Knit clothing is another trend that never leaves, but keeps coming back every year with a new look. Not only does this trend keep you warm in chilly weather, it also creates a comfy, yet stylish appearance.
Another trend that comes and goes is vintage clothing. Each generation has a different definition for vintage. This fall season, the focus is on the “swinging ‘60s,” the “Mod Look,” featuring short skirts and knee-high boot. A-line modi skirts that flow to the calf of the leg are also rising in style, giving women two options.
According to MSN, flaunting a black leather dress or skirt can add a sleek and bold aspect to an outfit. Leather has broken through the limitations of biker jackets and is now adding some bold flare to an outfit’s silhouette.
Urban street style is also an older design that returns every couple of years. Ripped and distressed denim is a major trend that will be seen in all storefronts this season.
Wearing white is no longer a fashion mishap. Stores such as Old Navy encourage customers to purchase a pair of white pixie pants to balance out the use of darker colors.
Plaid returns this fall in a big way. Not only do plaid button-down shirts remain an appropriate fashion choice, but plaid coats and dresses are also the newest style.
Clothing is just one aspect of an outfit. A true fashionista knows that no outfit is complete without accessories. Every outfit needs the perfect pair of shoes. This season features many different styles to choose from.
One particular fall outfit that will be hitting the streets is the classic knee and thigh high boots paired with a cute, short tribal dress.
Another recommended shoe choice this fall is ankle boots. Whichever ankle boot design you pick, it will be a guaranteed trendsetter.
The trendy bag and accessories this fall are bold and colorful. MSN also highlights the hottest seasonal colors. Adding some navy or burgundy to an outfit will add a pop of color, whether featured in a handbag or in a classic ballet flat.
Pastel colors from summer can also be incorporated through a jacket or necklace to complete any simple outfit.
