Fall 2014 Trends – Part III



Let’s round up the final five top trends for fall 2014 – hope you’re ready!


This will be the third and final edition of “Fall 2014 Trends” on Susanna Galanis Classical Education. I hope you enjoyed reading up on fall’s biggest trends as much as I enjoyed telling you about them. From here on out I will be posting one blog a month here on Susanna Galanis Classical Education keeping you up-to-date with even more trends and all things fashion.


Trend Alert: Temporary Tattoos


This first trend is totally nostalgic and making a comeback.

Dior paired up with jewelry designer, Camille Miceli to create 24-carat gold temporary tattoos. Yes, you read that right, these tattoos are made with 24-carat gold microparticles.

If you’re looking for a less expensive version of this temporary accessory, I advise you check out Flash Tattoos for equally as stunning tattoos at a more reasonable price.

Trend Alert: Gold


Gold is a color that truly looks good on everyone. If you want to go all-out with your new gold tattoos, pair them with a gold piece of clothing.

As seen on the Saint Laurent, Givenchy and Rochas  fall 2014 runways, gold is a gorgeous way to sparkle and appear super trendy.

Trend Alert: Fairy Tale

As little girls, we all dreamed of fairy tale (some of us still do). Sarah Burton, creative director at Alexander McQueen, brought those dreams to life with a whimsical fall 2014 collection.

Trend Alert: Hair

When it comes to a runway show, hair is just as important as the clothes. I spotted three major hair trends for fall – pastel, braids, and the bubble ponytail.

Marc Jacobs dyed his models hair with slight pink and lavender pastel hues. This trend is very easy for anyone to accomplish and something I’ve personally spotted all over the streets of New York City.

Braids are back and here to stay. A few years ago, braids appeared as a major trend and haven’t left since.  Designer brands such as Emilio Pucci, Etro, and Simona Rocha complimented their fall 2014 collections with a variation of braids.

Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pier Paolo Piccioli, creative directors of Valentino, also made it easy for you to recreate their runway hair – the bubble ponytail. Grab a handful of hair elastics and in just minutes you can achieve trendy hair.

Trend Alert: Hair Accessories

Fashion is head-to-toe which means that even your hair could use some accessorizing. Chanel took things up a notch with woven fabric ponytails. This hair accessory may be a bit more difficult to recreate but a definite way to make a statement.

In my first Fall 2014 Trends, I talked about Dolce & Gabbanna’s use of ornamentation throughout their designs. In thisedition of Fall 2014 Trends I must acknowledge their use of ornamentation to create a stunning and sparkly hair accessory.

Giambattista Valli also created a wearable hair trend for fall. Valli tied a piece of white fabric around his models hair for a cute and innocent-like vibe.
