The 2014 Fashion Trends we’re Leaving Behind

Happy New Year! (

It happens every year, there comes along a fashion trend that we absolutely fall in love with, buy it, and wear almost every day, because we want to stay in style. We see it everywhere we go, even on our favorite celebs. Sounds like these trends get a little worn out, right? Well, let’s find out what these trends are because its time to start saying goodbye to them and hello to a new year of new fashion trends.

Overalls, what a fun and easy look! Pair them with



your favorite tee and flats and you’re ready to head out the door. At least they were, but that’s so last year! This look is ready to head out the door for good. If you noticed your pair is fading, that’s OK, so is the trend completely.

Reflective Sunglasses (

Reflective Sunglasses (

Another easy to wear trend, reflective sunglasses hit hard this year in the music festival route, so trying a classical pair of round sunglasses may spice up the look and give it a little twist and flare. At least these glasses weren’t known as something “ugly”. The “ugly, chunky” shoe trend is hopefully staying in the past where it belongs. Its time to buy shoes that would consider pretty, its logical and good for your wallet. Let’s not waste any more money or time on trends that were known as ‘hideous’.

Crop Tops (

Crop tops were the biggest trend of 2014. They were seen everywhere on the red carpet and you could always count on finding them on at least a couple racks in any store. Perhaps a different shirt length trend will switch things up a bit for this adorable, yet overplayed look.

Plaid Shirt Around Waist (

Another shirt trend, the 90’s look known as tying a plaid shirt around the waist is coming to a halt. We thought it did about 20 years ago, but nope, it was too cute to pass up. But for New Year’s sake, try this 90’s trend: a sweater tied around the shoulders.

If you did not notice, the 90’s actually took over everything, including make-up and hair. Maybe we should concentrate on a new century, the 70’s bohemian vibe or the totally rad 80’s? Only 2015 will tell!

Winter Fashion Do’s and Don’ts

This Winter Season (

This Winter Season (

I’ve talked about winter fashion so here are some main do’s and don’ts to follow when rocking those styles. Do where colors! Black will only make you appear as though you’re just piling on clothing instead of accessorizing. Don’t over-do it though. Wearing a scarf, gloves, leg warmers, earmuffs, and a puffy jacket is just going to make you look more full and uncomfortable.

Find a way to feel great and be warm at the same time. This doesn’t mean you can’t wear more than one accessory at the same time, obviously wear as much as you need to be warm, just not every single piece you own all at once. A great example is arm warmers, leg warmers, a hat, and tall boots with your jacket, a look that is warm, stylish, and not too full.

While its a good idea to put colors into your accessories, also put them into your jackets, such as a

Colorful Leather Jackets (

red or blue leather jacket. Do pair a sweatshirt under a leather jacket for warmth, one of the hottest looks this season.

Don’t think you can’t wear your Summer items

Maxi Skirt (

anymore! Use a maxi skirt or dress to pair with some ankle boots and a sweater to go under your jacket. Don’t retire your white after labor day.

White Outfit (

Yes, I did say colorful items should be worn, but white is huge this season as well and all over the runway in accessories, boots, sweaters, and jackets.


Don’t be Afraid to Splurge

While its definitely great to shop and save money on clothes and accessories, sometimes splurging is worth more than you may realize. There are items that we want and some that we need, but no matter what the purpose is of your splurge, you may be getting more years and wear than you could by getting something that’s not so durable.

A pair of patent heels is a great investment. Go ahead and splurge on a pair for yourself, even if its just one pair of black that would match everything. They can be used for several occasions such as weddings, interviews, dances, or a night out on the town. They really touch up an outfit with by adding class or spicing it up a bit! So, why not? And why not find a great dress to go with them, the printed cocktail dress. Polka-dots and florals are great examples. These dresses are an amazing classic and bold enough to make a statement. The comfort and wow factor you get from these dresses and heels are totally worth the money.

A watch is the most practical piece of jewelry, it adds sophistication and is something you’ll keep for years to come. Another item practical enough to keep for years is the ballet flat. Its a staple item for any type of outfit with endless comfort. You’ll wear them more than your heels so carefully shop for them and find the best kind that will last through anything you walk through in your busy life.

Blue jeans, great with ballet flats, can be amazing if you find the right brand. Some may think jeans are just jeans, but they are so much more than that. They create an endless amount of outfits, dressy and casual. The variety they bring to your wardrobe with your heels, flats, accessories, and tops proves their worth. Buying high-end jeans will save you money in the end because a good brand will not rip or tear and cause you to spend over and over again on a new pair every month.

Now we all know clutches and handbags are essential for carrying all belongings we need to get through the day, so why not get one that is durable. Try a neutral colored clutch to go with any dressy outfit. Bags with short length straps and crossbodys really add the style we want to carry along with our outfit, whether we’re wearing a casual denim outfit or dressing it up. We don’t want something that isn’t going to rip. Trying out the splurging thing at least once will give us more days of comfort in knowing our products will last the as long as we need them to.
