Bring On the Lace & Fringe in 2014

Bring On the Lace & Fringe in 2014

The following is a guest post from momAgendaCOMM blogger Toni Patton.

2014 means new beginnings and new fashions, especially the kind of fashion that has been around in the past making an appearance again. I am excited about some of the trends the experts have already predicted for this year.

First up is a bit of a nod back to the 20’s and 30’s when the Charleston was big, taking a cue from the ladies known as flappers. Fringe is going to be back in 2014! Personally, I was not a big fan of fringe in the past, but the way they use it on clothing, shoes, and jewelry, I venture to say you will find me sporting some fringe this year as well.

Two-toned shirts are another trend we will see this year. I actually own a white shirt with black collar that I purchased last year and love it. There is just something about the way a two-toned shirt looks that can be used for business, daytime, or a night on the town. I especially love the pink/black combination in my created set below:

Get your boots and belt buckles because this year is going to be another big one for the “cowgirl” look. I noticed about mid-way through last year, the country girl look was making its appearance and it’s going to stay strong this year, too.  I am already eyeing a few pair of boots to wear with my jeweled jeans!

Get flirty and feminine with lace as it makes a huge comeback this year. Again, this was another trend I saw peeking out in 2013 but it will come out in full swing in 2014. I love feminine lace – anytime I wear anything with lace makes me feel pretty and ladylike.

Also, be on the lookout for iridescent, mesh (but wear it classy), full skirts (think 50’s era), white blouses and geometric prints. Yes, 2014 is going to be a fun year in fashion! What trend are you most looking forward to sporting this year?
