Spring Summer 2014 fashion trends‏

Though its still cold here in Egypt, its not the weather we bring down all our summery floral outfits and wear a cardigan over. Hence, this spring's trend, for Nature's twisted reasons and thank God for that, suits this weather. Here is a compilation of Spring Summer 2014 Fashion trends and must have items.

Boxy, Cropped (Non-Moto) Jackets

Yes, your fall wardrobe-staple moto jacket will still serve you well in the spring, but think about adding one of these non-moto jackets to your layering arsenal. The boxy, cropped silhouette can come in a plethora of prints and textures to pair easily with a fit-and-flare or body-con dress, tailored trousers, office-ready skirts, and (of course) your go-to jeans. A girl can never have too many jackets. Amirite?

Contrast-Collar Button-Downs

The crisp, menswear-inspired dress shirt enjoys a makeover with inventively cool, contrasting color and/or textured collars and cuffs. This elevated wardrobe essential is perfect for sneakily kicking up your work outfit (just make sure to button up all the way!).

Wide-Leg Trousers

Easy to wear and ultra-chic, billowy wide-leg trousers made a huge showing on the spring runways. I know what you're thinking...and, no, this trend isn't just for six-foot-tall supermodels, I swear. Just look for a pair that's leaner on the flare and higher-waisted to elongate your frame. 

Cool Bomber Jackets
The sporty layering pieces get edgier for spring with adventurously colorful prints, luxe textures and fabrics, and sporty-cool detailing—like mesh weaving and perforations. Like its cousin the moto jacket, the bomber is ultra versatile to temper the girliness of a dress or complement the athletic chicness of dressy shorts. 

Tea-Length Skirts

While the midiskirt may be the ultimate transition piece, the tea-length—between midi and maxi (yes, it's starting to get thatspecific)—is it for spring. The ladylike hemline can be just as modern as a mini; pair it with a cropped top to offset the length (and make you look taller!). Of course, you could also get the look with a breezy tea-length dress, but keep it modern and sexy by baring some arm (and maybe a little shoulder). 

Sweater Dressing

Along with the not-going-anywhere crop top, spring knits make for next season's staple separate. Whether it's boldly printed or inventively cut, the seasonal sweater is an easy-chic piece to pair with tailored pants, flirty skirts, and blousy shorts—or to just throw on over a light dress. 

Tuxedo-Meets-Athletic-Striped Trousers

The athletic stripe smartens up with tuxedo detailing on these sporty-meets-sophisticated tailored trousers. It's really all in the styling. To keep the look modern but refined, opt for a streamlined silhouette in unexpected white (black is sotraditional) and pair the pants with a casual non-button-down top. Or take inspiration from Costello Tagliapietra's "reverse tuxedo," with striping that runs along the inseam instead. 

The Shift Blouse

Almost like a dressy version of a T-shirt, the shift blouse is easy (but so much more sophisticated!). The near-elbow-length sleeve and boxy silhouette keep the look flattering and versatile. Have some fun with extra details, like exciting prints, luxurious textures, and varying necklines. 

Collarless Coats

Another strong spring layering piece: the long, streamlined coat, minus the collar or lapel. You could always go safe with a neutral or solid color, but take a risk with fun prints or embellished denim. The piece works with dressy trousers or a pencil skirt for the office, or spring leather pants or a body-con dress for a date-night outfit idea. 


For a major impact, slip on a holographic dress or skirt. For a more subdued effect, grip an iridescent clutch, instead.


During fall and winter, layer the netted fabric over a heavier material for insulation. Come spring, wear mesh over a black (or a daring neon hue) camisole.


The voluminous ladylike silhouette is here to stay. Pair the tea-length skirt with tights and boots during the winter.


The classic white button-down was reinterpreted on the runway. Look for a necktie detailing, embellishments or asymmetric cuts for a new spin.


Sweatshirts are no longer relegated to the gym. The slouchy silhouette gets a makeover for spring, with brighter hues and splashier patterns. 


Look like a boss in a power suit—but with coordinated color separates. Brave a bold pattern or color. Too intimidating? Tread waters with a lighter shade.


Speak to your sweet side with pretty pastels in mint green, lavender and blush pink. For winter, lend some edge with jeweled tones and leather.


No shades of gray here—look crisp and cool in contrasting colors.


An athletic aesthetic clearly took over the runways, most notably, baseball caps, tennis-inspired dresses and varsity jackets. Wear them separate or all together.


Flashback to geometry class for next season's print craze: grids, triangles, concentric circles and more.
