With New York Fashion Week AW14 well underway, fashion-forward media sites are saturated with FROW selfies, a glimpse of trends yet to hit the high street but most predominantly – Victoria Beckham.
Initially, the clothing hinted at Victoria’s penchant for signature dresses. Now, the brand is less ‘Posh Spice’ and has taken an experimental twist. Her trademark polished look has been elevated with fresher pieces which will undoubtedly attract younger fans. The show favoured a classic ‘less is more’ approach – skirts were mid-length and trousers were slouchy. The classic VB bodycon dress has loosened leaving plenty of breathing space for a selection of floaty, tailored numbers.
With the fashion eye so heavily focused for the up and coming trends for AW14, the High Street is flooded with a fresh batch of SS14 trends and it’s time to question what should the fashion-conscious student be wearing this season? Take a look at the Top Five wearable picks for SS14 and you won’t put a flip-flopped foot wrong…
1. Go-to Monochrome
Black and white is the cool combination to wear this season. This look can be simply transcended from day to night – swap flats for heels and keep it current with a swatch of matte orange lipstick.
2. Keep it Sweet in Pastels
For a contemporary injection of colour, opt for pastels. Let the playsuit take centre stage with minimal accessories and pair the lilac skirt with skinnies for a sugary sweet daytime outfit.
3. Abs Out
Bare midriffs still rule so it’s time to start the 30-day ab challenge. The crop this season is slightly longer and beautifully-worn as part of this silky skort suit.
4. Join the Tribe
Tribal vibes remain current in the fashion world – go for a full-on ethnic style and make it eclectic with lots of gold jewellery or throw on this blouse with leggings to keep it casual.
5. Oh Dear…
The awkward flip-flop, or more attractively-named ‘pool slider’ is going to be a big one this summer. Fear not, Office have made this kinder to look at with their take on the toe-curling trend.
