Spring/Summer 2014 Fashion Trend: Freedom of Choice





When the top fashion designers trot out the latest looks on leggy models, it can be hard for us to relate high fashion to our everyday lives. We can discover elements to update our wardrobes this season and we have plenty of elements to choose from! Skirt lengths vary, which is good news for personal choice. Its no fashion faux-pas to cover knees or to leave them bare this season. Dresses show off pretty patterns of all sorts this year, ranging from soft floral prints to geometric patterns. Rebellious rule-breakers have the O.K. to mix classic stripes with fun polka dots. Wide horizontal stripes and color blocking bring a fresh, modern edge. Expect to see sleeves of one color and torso of another and stripes so blown up that pant legs have only a few bands rather than an all-over pattern.




Accessories are just as varied as the clothes! Hand-made touches with ethnic influences continue to charm. Beads in every size and color will please everyone! Pair jangly coin necklaces with layers of chain for the Gypsy look. These can be worn with delicate-print frocks as well as solid business suits. Large candy-colored beads and bib necklaces full of sparkle are worn over casual clothing with a devil-may-care attitude. Bracelets by the armload will encourage creative types to keep up with the trend. Thin strands of seed beads mixed with wide leather cuffs, bangles with charms, and chain with braided threads have become standard daily wear.





Not to be ignored, bold earrings nearly shout with their fashion statement! They are swinging trapezes of color and shape this season. Bright coin clusters and crescents of seed beads dangle from each ear. Feel free to express yourself, this is truly the season of choice!
