Although there is still snow on the ground and the temperatures are below the degrees of COLD, fashion forecasters only had spring on the mind. Fashion Week went by in a flash, but started off with a bang thanks to ready-to-wear designers and major shows from Carolina Herrera, Tommy Hilfiger, and – celebrating her 30th anniversary on top in the fashion business – Donna Karan. Just as we forecasted, we saw all the latest spring 2014 trends we told you to look out for. What we did not anticipate though was how HOT the white-collar trend was going to be.
Every designer you could possibly think of at the top of your head sent their models down the runway in what seems to be this coming seasons must have: The White Collar. Tory Burch, Phillip Lim, Carolina Herrera, BCBG Max Azria, Ralph Lauren, Marc Jacobs, Michael Kors, and that’s only naming a few. Everyone who is anyone put out the white-collar look in his or her collection and for good reason. People are raving, especially all of us here at The Hip Event. Every designer obviously had his or her own take on this seasons hottest trend. One style that really stood out to us was Ralph Lauren’s business in the 60’s look. It is very retro-esk yet still modern and hot. A simple black knitted dress with a pop of white at the collar. This black mini is sure to be seen all over the place once the line launches in stores.
Other fun and inventive looks that took the runway by storm this past week were the metallic and 3D designs. Marc Jacobs added a dark dazzle to his line with a shiny knee length dress. The blue sequin stripes over a black lace really had heads turning and jaws dropping. Another eye-popping look was sent down the runway at the Altuzarra show. The idea of the dress is a more laid-back evening look draped with liquid gold and silver separates. This look really sent the metallic trend into full swing this season.
One more trend that seems to be sticking around another year is the floral print. With designers like Tory Burch and Tommy Hilfiger revamping the look to keep up with this seasons hottest trends, it’s no wonder the look hasn’t faded away. The look is all easy, breezy, and fun if you ask us and it is also definitely something keeping our minds on the fact that spring is just around the corner.
We hope you enjoyed Fashion Week as much as we did. Always remember ladies, keep calm and style on!
