Fall 2014 Trends – Part II

BY SAMANTHA GUARNIERI
I’m back with a brand new list of trends for Fall 2014.
This is part two of the “Fall 2014 Trends” series on SG Classical Education, with five brand new trends for this upcoming fall season. So grab yourself a cold beverage this time, as the temperature and trends have gotten even hotter. Also, if you haven’t read the first part of this series, “Fall 2014 Trends: Part I” I suggest you quickly go do so before continuing on. Now, get ready all you fashionistas it’s time to educate yourselves on the biggest trends for fall.
Trend Alert: Sheer
Pop singer, Rihanna, is famous for showing a little extra skin and has subsequently turned this provocative look into a major trend for this upcoming fall season.
Designers brands such as Nina Ricci and Valentino have introduced sheer in their collections in a slightly more conservative way.
Nina Ricci combined elegance and sophistication with an edgy sheer print to create the perfect combination for a more wearable sheer style.
Famed designer, Valentino, created equally as stunning designs through the use of sheer textiles in long and flowy cuts.

Trend Alert: 60s Retro
The term “history repeats itself” is definitely true when it comes to this next retro trend.
The designers at Louis Vuitton and Saint Laurent brought back the 1960s on their fall 2014 runways.
Nicholas Ghesquiere creative director at Louis Vuitton re-introduced burnt orange, brown, and powder blue hues as well as geometric patterns from the 60s in his fall designs.
While  Hedi Slimine at Saint Laurent took the structure, collars, and black eyeliner from the 60s to use in his modern-day designs.

Trend Alert: Fringe
Equestrian was without-a-doubt a major trend throughout the pre-fall collections, and this next trend continues on with the western theme.
Lanvin’s fall 2014 collection made a statement with fringe-covered dresses and coats.
Though, if fringe on your clothing is too much, Michael Kors released a line of fringe accessories for the fall.
Fringe creates beautiful and fun movement and is completely wearable for the less-adventurous group.

Trend Alert: Knit
As soon as colder temperatures hit, we immediately reach for our warm and cozy blankets. With this next trend, there are no blankets necessary.
Famed designer Marc Jacobs covered his models in head-to-toe knits at his fall 2014 runway show.
Rei Kawakubo, creative director of Commes des Garçon took a more elaborate approach and actually covered her models in knits.
Simply throw on a chunky knit and you’ll be super comfortable yet undeniably trendy.

Trend Alert: Brights
This last trend shocked the fall 2014 runways with it’s bold and refreshing style.
When fall strikes we put away our bright colors and floral patterned pieces. Though, the Dior and Thakoon fall 2014 runway shows suggested we do otherwise and instead embrace the bright, warm colors.
Christian Dior created a beautiful balance at Dior’s fall show by combining heavier textiles appropriate for cold weather with bright red and blue colors.
Thakoon Panichgul warmed up  his fall runway with bright colors and floral prints to create a bold and ironic new trend for the fall.
