Happy Friday Lovelies & Cheers to the weekend!
I hope y'all had a blessed week, I sure did. Last fall, I did a trend report on my favorite trends plus my picks from the trend and it was such a huge hit on my blog. You guys seem to really love it, so why not make it a regular post every season. Although it's a lot of work (picking out the trend, browsing online to find my picks, downloading the pictures from the sites, making a collage of the pictures then going back to get the links of each item) but it was my pleasure to do it for you lovelies. My top 8 trends that I am loving for this spring/summer 2014 are Full Midi Skirts, Cami Tops, Peplum Hem, Lace Pieces, Kimonos, Pastels, Floral Print Sandals and Gladiators. Check out the pieces I picked out from each with their direct links below.
Full Midi Skirts: This is definitely my favorite trend of the season, they are so feminine, dramatic and very chic. I personally feel like you can never go wrong with this skirt silhouette. Moreover it has 50s classic edge to it and can be styled in so many ways. See how I styled this trend HERE, HERE, HERE and HERE.
Cami Tops: Instead of a regular tank top or a basic t-shirt, try a cami top this season. Not only is it perfect for those hot spring/summer days, it is also very versatile. You could style it with skirts, pants, and shorts.
Peplum Hem: peplums were all the rage last spring/summer, it's still very popular but the position of the peplum has been updated to hemlines of skirts and dresses. I love peplum hems because it adds a little drama and "oomph" to a piece. See how I styled this trend HERE and HERE.
Lace Pieces: what's not to love about lace pieces? They are pretty, dainty and very feminine. This season, there are so many options of colors and styles for lace pieces. If you want to add a hint of girly style to your outfit, just throw on a lace top or skirt. See how I styled this trend HERE.
Kimonos: they are the "it" jacket of the season. Although they are very light and airy to be considered jackets but if you need to add an extra layer to your outfits this spring/summer it better be kimonos. The possibilities of styling them are endless, I will show y'all a casual way of styling kimonos in my next post.
Pastels: they are also must-haves for every spring/summer. These sweet sorbet colors of mint, lilac, pale pink and baby blue are absolutely perfect for season. If you are skeptical about trying pastels, start with a nice accessory like a belt or statement necklace and I promise you will fall in love the the sweet colors.
Floral Print Sandals: Floral prints are always on trend every spring/summer, in fact they are a must-have for the season. This spring/summer add a pair of floral print sandals to your closet rather than floral print clothes. They are also versatile since you can basically pair it with any color on the floral print design of the sandals.
Gladiator Sandals: Most people probably do not like this trend, but I think it's worth giving a shot. The styling of gladiator sandals can be tricky, I would say always style it with shorts, a dress or skirt above the knee to allow the sandals to stand out. For a more conserved look, try styling it with a maxi dress with high slits so the sandals can peek through the slits.
