Spring/Summer trends for 2014… Big Brands suggest.. From the all-time classic floral to boho chic…

If the New Year signifies a new beginning, then spring is the season of  the “renaissance”. The mood is changing -for the better-and the weather begins to prepare us for the summer that every year we hope to be more upbeat. May known fashion houses notify their proposals in the previous September already, but the truth is that at the end of the winter we start to study thoroughly and distinguish the similarities and differences of proposing trends. Fashion in 2014 surprise us and offer us a variety of colours, fabrics and prints. Favourites Floral, bold colours and detailed touches embroidered on different fabrics will dominate throughout the spring and will be worn until the very end of summer.

When in doubt wear Floral..
From our favourites prints are the Spring flowers and floral designs that beyond a perfectly fashionable effect, make our mood and put colour on our appearances in the most stylish and enjoyable way. Whether you choose the big flowers or the most distinctive designs, you will definitely achieve looks that can make a difference. The new season fashion houses such as Mary Katrazou, Isabel Marant, Stella McCartney, Christian Dior the honoured the trend in highlighting  it in their collections making it a more timeless trend that can not be missing from our spring looks. You’ll see iflowers ina light background like the stylish white, pastel shades and a dark background, such as elegant black colour. All you have to do is.. blossom.
Crop Top
The crop tops are pretty much like learning to ride. At first a bit daunting, but with a little practice you gain so much confidence you want to try it yourself. It is one of the trend of the summer definitely most women hesitate to try. Fortunately for us, we can get many ideas from the catwalks to incorporate it in our closet without feel uncomfortable! On the one hand we have shirts that do not exceed the navel in bold prints and extra volume as the catwalk of Derek Lam and Balmain, the other tops that are short enough and want a shapely body to support it like the revealing crop tops of Marc Jacobs for Louis Vuitton house and the bra tops by Diane von Furstenberg.
Fringes
The fringes while representing a distinctive bohemian detail to your appearance, can meet even the classic or girly or rock your sets. Choose your skirt or dress or jacket or pants and create a stylish look with “air” and move. Depending on whether you want to achieve relaxing or bold stylistic effect the fringes on your clothes. If you’re not a crazy fan of this trend, try a piece with details of fringes, such as a clutch bag with a distinctive tuft of fringes of a statement necklace with fringes and beads. 
The Battle: Black VS White
If last year we watched a gradual reduction of monochrome appearances on catwalk indicating how they tended to disappear completely, we have
been dashed since one of the most popular fashion trend spring / summer 2014 is monochrome impressions. Black and white have their honorary supporting in a unique way mysterious and striking shapes which are breathtaking. Whichever from the two colours you choose the result will be just as impressive, then bet your place in monochrome black or white look and will surely leave victorious.
Fashion in spring / Summer 2014 manages to be modern through past, be subversive following beaten track and showing the future using elements of retro. We look forward to follow the enchanting trails. Are you?
