NYFW SPRING 2014: The Trend Report

nyfwtrends

NYFW ended about a week ago and with an endless line-up, it takes some time to review and identify the strongest trends and colors of the coming season. As always, there were lots of surprises, new styles, comebacks and more! I wanted to present to you no more than 10 trends but it was impossible to narrow them down (I ended up with 20). Best thing about it? There’s something for everyone and pastels for me, yay! Let’s start!

sweatsForget about your classic pullover, it’s all about sheer panels, textures, graphics and even sequins this Spring!
