2014 means a fresh start for everyone, and especially for fashionistas! The beginning of the year is a great excuse to re-organize your wardrobe and get rid of the things you no longer use. And with all that new closet space, there’s plenty of room for new purchases! 2014 is a year with very mixed trends, which is good, because you’ll surely find something for suit your taste! For Hermes, for example, it’s all about earth tones and simple cuts, while for MiuMiu prints and 60s cuts rule once again.
We saw opulence at Dolce&Gabbana for the SS14 collection, and elegant minimalist at Saint Laurent. Which one is more you? Mix and match until you find your perfect style for 2014! And here are our suggestions for two stylish outfits you can try out, one for everyday and one for the evening:
Day outfit:Denim shirt - Mango; Jeans - Elizabeth & James; Coat - By Marlene Birger; Shoes - Acne Studios; Bag - Michael Kors; Sunglasses - Ray Ban; Necklace -Nasty Gal;
For everyday wear, try the “Canadian tuxedo”, which actually means double denim. Of course, you don’t want to look like a cowboy of sorts, so pick cool jeans and an even cooler shirt. Make it work with this winter’s trendiest coat - a pink pastel one - and a pair of masculine brogues in a pastel color. No denim shirt is cool without a statement necklace on top, and don’t forget your best mirror-lensed sunglasses either. Finally, a leather crossbody bag will be easy to carry and large enough to fit your daily essentials.
Night outfit: Dress - DKNY; Jacket - Kenzo; Tights - Spanx; Ankle boots - Givenchy; Sunglasses - Marc Jacobs; Bangles - Monsoon; Clutch - Street Level;
If you’re headed for the clubs or a party, you can’t go wrong with a little black dress, no matter the year. Keep warm with a pair of opaque tights and a cool shearling jacket. Have fun with your shoes, by picking printed, heeled ankle boots, and colorful bangles all around. A fun clutch will make your outfit whole, and you’ll be happy you brought sunglasses with you when you leave the party the next morning.
