Metallics are no longer just for your winter holiday parties. Fashionistas have transferred the shining trend to make it completely wearable for this upcoming season. With metallics, you are sure to make a statement when entering any room. Designers such as Balmain, Tom Ford and Dries Van Noten each have their own selection from the shimmery hues featured throughout the 2014 Spring New York Fashion Week. Which one will you choose?
This light and flowy look will bring comfort and style to the table this spring. The trend also showed up the runway at NYFW this year among designers such as Chloe, Jason Wu, Georgio Armani and more. The look allows showing some skin while wearing the translucent fabric. Here is a picture of Rihanna’s take on the fashion at Jean Paul Gaultier show during Paris Fashion Week this year.
3.) Wide Leg Pants
We’re bringing 60’s back with the wide leg pant! The trend has been worn recently by many celebrities such as Kim Kardashian and Solange Knowles. Imagine the newest style being a mix of the disco’s look from 70’s bell-bottom with the bagginess of the 90’s pant. The key is to get a pant that fits well and it flattering to your frame.
4.) Crop Tops
Time to hit the gym! Crop tops will be the perfect addition this season to show off those perfect abs you have been working so hard to attain! The trend was popping up everywhere last year and has managed to make another debut this spring! They pair perfect with any type of high waist piece that will allow you show some skin without baring all. Balenciaga does it best in this chic all black crop top and skirt duo. We love the way pop star Zendaya styles her crop top! Cute and chic!
5.) White Pumps
Most people believe you shouldn’t wear white after Labor Day, but that doesn’t prove to be true this spring season! At number 5, a gorgeous pair of white pumps will prove a perfect accessory in the upcoming season. The Christian Louboutin Pigalles are a popular choice for many. Check out Ciara rocking her pair!
