It seems like only yesterday that we were packing away pastels and shorts and dredging out our winter coats. However, the fashion industry is always one step ahead of us and the runways are already bursting with exciting new Spring 2014 fashion trends. If you want to stay ahead of the curve, we can help you unleash your inner fashionista with some of our best picks for next year’s biggest fashion trends.
1) Pretty in Pastels

Let’s face it, pastels are always going to be a spring staple. They represent the fresh, light and airy vibe of the season and complement most skin tones beautifully. So far, Spring 2014 fashion trends are pegging hemlock green and placid blue as some of the biggest colours of the year. Of course, you can never go wrong with mint green or peach either.
If you’re looking for a gorgeous casual pastel dress to wear for an evening of cocktails or a walk on the beach, you can’t go past a flowing maxi dress, like the Sakkas String Halter dress in peach (Amazon – $23.99 – you will save 65%). It sports an unusual but flattering smocked bust and a stylish halter neckline that’s bang on trend. Save more on your purchase with an Amazon Discount Code.
Another easy option that’s well in line with next year’s fashion trends is a pair of cute shorts worn with a plain tee. Check out the Maison Jules Shorts in sky blue (Macy’s – $39.99) to add a pop of pastel to any outfit.
2) Flirty in Florals

“Florals” is another one of 2014 trends that surfaces year after year. And why not? Flowers are synonymous with spring. They’re also a great way to experiment with colours and patterns without sporting anything as wild as leopard print or as unflattering as horizontal stripes.
If you really want to make an impression, slip into something brazenly bold like this a-line dress from Sami + Dani (Macy’s – $34.99). The white material serves as the perfect contrast to the explosion of colour that follows and the beautifully detailed landscape of flowers is as feminine as it is daring. A v-shaped neckline and a-line silhouette make it an extremely flattering cut for all sizes.
For something more sedate but still very appropriate for Spring 2014 fashion trends, why not try on the American Rag Doll dress (Macy’s, $37)? This salmon a-line dress also sports an all over floral print. However, the white, almost sketch inspired flowers look a little more innocent and playful than those on Sami + Dani’s design. The dress just hits knee length, which adds to its naive charm.
3) Laddish in Logos
Spring 2014 Fashion Trends have seen the 90’s love affair with labels and logos return to the fashion forefront. If you want to emulate the latest catwalk styles, look for shirts emblazoned with your favourite brands or even a tongue-in-cheek message. Unlike the other trends we’ve explored so far, this look is less about being girly and more about being edgy. Who said spring was all about pastels?
To really make a statement, check out this grungy-chic Parental Advisory top (Ebay – $26) in black. But if you’re looking for something a little sweeter, opt instead for a Sleeveless Guess Top (Macys- $24.99) in white. This cute fitted tee would go perfectly with a pair of light denim jeans and your favourite strappy sandals.
4) Preppy in Pleats
Mark our words, after roaring success on the catwalks, pleats are going to be one of the biggest 2014 trends. It’s a common misconception that pleats aren’t very flattering on a lot of body types. However, that’s simply not true. You simply have to find the right style for your body type. For example, if you’re trying to minimize your derriere, choose stitched down pleats instead of voluminous ones. Fortunately, Spring 2014 fashion trends suggest that everyone from punks to princesses will be catered to by this season’s wide range of styles.
For an almost universally flattering and casual look, pair a pleated skirt like the flared J.Tomson Women’s Basic Skater Skirt in passion purple (Amazon – $11.99) with a tucked in tee. To dress the look up a bit, tuck a cute white blouse into your pleated skirt instead. An inherently feminine style works best for dressier events. For something in between casual and formal, try the Xhilaration Peter Pan top (Target – $17.49). The cream colour and tailored fit is classy, while the studs on the collar lend it some attitude. Of course, don’t forget that you can always just throw a sweater and don some nude heels for a quick and preppy outfit.
5) Sweet in Sweaters
Just because the calendar says it’s spring, that doesn’t mean we can expect an instant end to the cooler weather. However, there’s no need to panic, because Spring 3014 fashion trends have once again endorsed our love for adorable knitwear.
Next time you think it’s too chilly out to wear your favourite spring dress or skirt, just throw a chic sweater over the top and add some beige tights to the ensemble. Keep warm while looking stylish by selecting a sweater that fits nicely on your shoulders and isn’t too baggy on the rest of the body, as this can create an illusion of frumpiness.
Additionally, make sure that your outfit still looks fresh and springy by sticking to colours like peach, mint green, sky blue and other pastels as opposed to blacks and greys. The Mossimo Supply Co. Lace Front Sweater (Target – $22.99) in pink or blue makes a great choice, as it comes with a feminine lace overlay that makes it dressier than most traditional sweaters.
