Next trend for the Spring-Summer 2014 is graphic trend, especially in black and white colors. The combination of these two colors is classic and dressy. Now add some graphic or geometrical pattern to it and it looks beautiful, as long as you don’t overdo with it. I like to stay away from busy outfits…minimum lines and big patterns. What a great way to create a bold statement and add interest to the look!
Below are some photos of graphic trend from runaways! Judge for yourself.
Last month, my family and I were relocating to another state across the United States, and fashion trends were number 10 on my list. I feel like today I am finally unpacked all the way, and it looks like my closet needs some new garments and accessories. However, before I go shopping, let’s talk fashion! Spring time is almost here, and there are some interesting trends to watch out for to look stylish this season.
For the next few posts, I will be writing about top Spring trends I am interested in, and after that the fun part begging…shopping!
One of my favorite trends this season is Fringe Trend! Fringing was always popular with in boho and Western styles. However, this Spring you can spot it on every garment possible from swimming suits to shoes. Suede, raw leather and silk add a new stylish and dressy feel to this new trend.
As you may have noticed, I always love garments that can be worn many different ways to create dressy or casual outfits. Fringing is one of those decorative pieces that can be styled to dress the look up or down depending on the style you go for and the mood you are in.

I think it’s time to go shopping for some new clothes, as it’s been a while since I did that. For now I am wearing jeans, shirt, jacket and platform shoes. Polka dot pattern and a bold necklace make the outfit dressy and cute. A pop of green adds some color and interest to the look.

Here is an outfit I wore today to run some errands. I wanted to be comfortable,and still look dressy. Jeans, hoodie and sneakers were great for comfort, and the blue well-fitting jacket added a touch of elegance to the outfit.

To summarize, here are all three looks I created for the Challenge!
I wore a houndstooth pencil skirt with red suede shoes three times in a row. In addition to that only black, white and red colors were used. In order to look different and stylish in the same skirt and shoes, I paired them with black, white and red tops. Addition of accessories was also a great help in adding interest to the outfits.
I think it went well. What do you think?
Posting my third and final outfit for the Challenge…same shoes, same skirt, even the same colors: black, red and white, but the look is different!
3 Out Of 3! Final!
Happy Valentines Day!!!
Today I am posting my second look for the Challenge I came up with last week. The challenge is to create 3 different looks with the same skirt and shoes.
2 Out Of 3!
I would like to share with you some of my favorite black and white pattern pencil skirts. I would love to own each one of them.
Since I got my favorite red suede shoes and just recently bought a pencil skirt with houndstooth print, I think it’s time for a new challenge!
I will create 3 outfits with the same shoes and skirt, the difference will be different tops and accessories that I will add to the looks.
Another important rule to the challenge is to keep it to the minimum of three colors: black, red and white! Should be fun!
1 Out of 3!
I am wearing…
Sometimes I feel like wearing boyfriend jeans with sneakers, other times I love wearing a long dress, but today I wanted to look simple and classy. When I think of a classy outfit, a few things come to mind: tailored look, low-contrasting colors, and modesty.
In fact, let me share with you a few tips I am using when putting a simple and classy look together:
- wear not too tight, not too loose clothes;
- avoid bright colors, instead wear black, white, neutral or monochromatic color choice;
- use minimum jewelry. Sometimes that one piece of jewelry can visually make your look far more expensive than it is;
- ”Show only one thing, cover up the other entirely”…
…just a few steps, and you look…Simple and Classy!
