Spring 2014 Trends for Work
Not all fashion trends translate into wearable work fashion. Fortunately, there are quite a few trends this spring that can work in your everyday business casual/elegant casual workplace.
- Outerwear: Collarless coats and bomber jackets. And I just read here that boxy jackets are in - but not moto jackets. Note: Boxy jackets are not universally flattering.
- Colors: Black & white (as far as I’m concerned, this is not a trend but forever green), hints of pink, and pastels. Note: If pastels wash you out, incorporate them in accessories like shoes and bags.
- Pants: Wide-leg and tuxedo.
- Light-weight sweaters.
After cruising through a bunch of trend projection compilations, I can see these trends in the workplace: white on white, tea-length skirts (these often read to girlie for me at work - but I’ll leave that up to you). Hey you awesome young women: consider wearing crop tops, sweat shirts, voluminous shift blouses, and major metallics for weekend/hanging out/going out wear.
