TREND REPORT 2014/15 FALL WINTER

Hello dolls,

It took a while my dears, but finally we are here again with a brand new post about 2014/15 Fall/Winter fashion trends. We’ve tried to summarize the most important new manias, so the post is about dresses and accessories that’ll be fashionable this season, prints and colours that conquered the catwalks. What’s more, as always, we’re doing our best to translate these new trends to the beautiful language of every day fashion. So this post can be devided into 6 main units:

In the Classic fall/winter trends part we show you the -all – time classics that you can perfectly combine later on too.
In the next episode called New Trends 2014/15 Fall/Winter you can read about the absolute new-ins eg. rhinestoned sweaters and calf-lenght coats.
The third part contains the trendy Prints and Patterns,
while in the Colours and Shades section we suggest you the most fashionable shades of the season.
Finally – in the All about the shoes part – we look into the latest shoetrends,
and last but not least we show you the most important Jewelleries and other accessories too.

We honestly hope that you will find this lond guide loveable and useful, and also hope that it will help you to think through your Fall/Winter wardrobe and maybe to make a wishlist. Have a good browsing my beautidul dears! 🙂

Fluffy fur vests and coats are the things you can’t skip when it’s wintertime. Without doubt these are one of the most practical Fall/Winter basics since they’re easy to combine, elegant and warm at the same time. You can wear them with almost everything, speaking of skinny jeans or A-lined skirts, so it’s time to find your favourite one 🙂

In the mid-season it’s gonna be useful to have an ‘I’ll just pick up something and let’sgo’ jackets. Mostly they are made of black faux leather, but this year feel free to get them in different pastel colours too. They’re pretty practical: perfectly substitute blazers, cheer up your outfits and help you to survive morging colds. And when it gets warmer during the day, just tie them around your waist. Voila, what a stylish chic!

There’s no need to explain why to have them, knitwears are the alphas and omegas of our winter outfits. Essential and always fashionable basics.

Plystre

All black from head to toe – the lifesaver fashion tip of our clueless mornings. You just can’t go wrong by using only black: it’s chic, elegant, and super hot all day all night.

This season – beside faux leather jackets and fur vests – calf – lenght or XXL coats are one of the most fashionable winter wears. It seems like it’ll be a long term relationship between this new trend and us since they match fancy with not just high-heels, but slipons and sneakers as well. We just love this trend! 🙂

This fall everything can be trendy with a little zipper decoration. It’s time to wear jeans, faux leather skirts and boots decorated with non-functional zippers. Huge advantage that you can trend up your old skirts with some golden zip at home. Let’s do-it-yourselfs begin!

Welcome back, sweet 60’s! Dolly-bird dresses dominated the fall 2014’s runways and are must-haves today. They’re perfect transitional pieces for this fall since they’re not only easy to combine eg. with biker jackets, denims or knitted cardigans, but comfy to wear too. What’s more, it’s enough to find a beautiful, shinny belt to make the casual dress special and pretty girly.

It’s time to get sophisticated with matching pieces again. Though matchy – matchy used to mean something trite, now it’s allowed to play with colours again. Anyway, it’s still pretty important to be careful when you accord similar shades and patterns – always be imaginative and unique, never boring!

The biggest change in this season’s that statement jewelleries take a bit of back seat, while dresses adorned with jewels such as pearls and rhinestones take the lead. The offer of the stores is really diversed, you can find simpler sweaters decorated with only golden chains and fully rhinestoned ones too.

For the lovers of rhinestones we totally recommend the new collection of Prieston (by Noémi Nagy), her beautiful cocktail dresses are perfect for proms and elegant events. What’s more, we’re very proud of our lovely and talented Hungarian designer who rocked the Fashion Week’s catwalk in Wien and London.

The newest Fall/Winter 2014/2015’s collections were dreamy and imaginative – in a beautiful, bejeweled maxi dress you’ll definitely be the fashion queen of the prom.

Floral prints are not just spring phenomenon any more, they appear this autumn as well. Fall flowers combined with darker shades and earth colors always make your daily looks special and girly.

As for the colors, feel free to move out of your comfort zone and leave the darker shades of brown, black, burgundy or khaki. It’s trendy to wear clothes with more vivid colors. It’s time to cheer up the weather with some neon pulovers and huge, knitted scarves 🙂

It’s not a big secret that my favourite trend of all the mentioned ones is the expansion of pastel shades. Thanks to the newest fashion waves the stores are full of white, nude, baby pink and beige clothes and accessories. Here comes the fluffy pastel fur vests, white pants and super soft beanies and scarves. Yaaay!

This season – as you can felt it at the rhinestoned clothes session – is all about shine and glamour. And as we all know, nothing shines brighter than gold, so it’s high time for golden detailed accessories and clothes: skirts, blazers, dresses and tops to conquer the shops. And our wardrobes for sure.

But don’t forget the main rule: try to wear these statement items with simple , patternless garbs – cause you know sometimes less is more 🙂

Marc Jacobs

As I mentioned above, you can wear bravely everything that shines so bright. Beside the goldmine trend rose gold and silver are still in fashion. In addition – beyond the bejeweled clothes and accessories – the sequined items are back in trend again.

Beside pastel shades and gold rush there are two main colors of the 2014/15 Fall/Winter season: dark blue and emerald green. I think that both of them’re all time classics: so elegant and feminine. Well, let’s welcome them with all of our hearts.

The shoe trend of this season is all about extreme motifs, boldness and specials. Just like the dresses, the decorated and funny high heels are main caracters of the Fall.

Beside bald decoration, in 2014/15 Fall/Winter patterns are also try to be unique: colorful snake prints, shiny golden scales and baroque motifs. Trendy materials are the leather, maybe faux leather.

If you are looking for a comfy, but trendy shoes, slipons are definitely your best friends…

… but if you are in love with feminine boots, don’t stop by the ancle, because this Fall the most trendy boots are way above the knee.

Finally, if you literally want to dress like a fashion maniac, cut out boots is the kind of boots, that you have to wear.

In this season accessory trends are not really contain emphatic jewels. However, statement necklaces (read more about them here >>) and layering mini necklaces (read more about them here >>) naturally are still in fashion. The main reason of the absence of new jewel fashion wave, that the decorated dresses (with golden chains, rhinestones of sequins) are flashy and jeweled enough, and make additional accessories unnecessary.

Even if this Fall’s jewel trends are not so flashy, luckily there is a new and loveable wave, the hat mania. More and more feminine hats appear in the stores in the last weeks. They can perfectly cheer up a simple jeans – top – coat outfits, and can cover a missed morning shampooing for a short time. Don’t forget to wear them! 🙂

This season speciality are pairless earrings. The meaning of this trend is that you should wear a statement (mostly a longer one) in one of your ear, and put nothing in the other but a tiny little pearl.
In our opinion, this style can be really hot with a sideway combed hair or a one shoulder sweater.

WARDROBE BASICS FOR SPRING / SUMMER

Hello there,
The last few days many new readers joined, so first of all let me thank y’all that you’re always so sweet and kind with us. Thank you guys for being here for more than two years now, thanks for all the lovely comments you leave and also thanks for following our page, love you so much!
We recieved such a lot messages from you recently, in which you asked questions mainly in the following 2 topics:

on the one hand, you asked us to name the most important wardrobe basics,
on the other hand you wanted to know what clothes and accessories you need if you’d like to change your recent sporty style to something more elegant.

Though we’ve already wrote some posts about these things, yesterday I came up with the idea that I creat a new one. This time you can meet some basic clothes and accessories that will be trendy and fashionable in the new 2014 SS season. Anyway, it’s not a trend riport, it’s just a useful guide to help you to do some smart shopping!

Though biker style was in last year, a stylish faux leather jacket is always a great choice! All fashionistas should own at least one classic black moto jacket. Moreover, they’re pretty easy to combine – on colder days they look perfect under a faux fur vests, but I love wearing mine with girly dresses or skinny jeans and basic tops as well.

This season pastel shades are back, and I’m so happy that they conquer leather jackets too. Actually I’m in love with a lovely babyblue one from Zara now (you can see it on the following picture). What do you think about pastel jackets anyway?

I don’t know if you’ve ever felt the same way, but when spring comes my blazer mania always starts to increase in me. If I could, I’d collect blazers in all the colours of the rainbow! Though it seems a little bit impossible right now, a pastel blazer (eg. a black, white or nude one) is always a good idea – it’s easy to combine and so beautiful to wear.

Many of you wrote us that you used to wear comfy and sporty clothes so far, but now you’d like to make some change and be a little bit more elegant and feminine- just don’t know how to start. Well, buying a nice blazer could be a solid, but clever start! There’s no need to worry, it’ll match perfectly with loafers or a nice pair of flat shoes too, so you don’t have to give up the everyday comfort you love. In addition, blazers are great even for plus-size-women, wear them with pride – just find the perfect cutting that’s the best for your constitution.

It’s worthy thinking beyond the basic colors, cause a pretty blazer can be worn everytime. This spring pastel colours are the big comebacks, so if you keen on buying a practical and trendy blazer, feel free to choose a nude, pastelpink, babyblue, buttercup yellow or a mint one.
Although pastel blazers can be found in such a lot local shops right now, we’d like to also recommend you some online stores like Asos or Boohoo – as far as I can see, they have a wide range of choices as well. (Both stores are reliable, O’ve already tried them – the quality is high and the estimated shipping time is about 1 week.)

Though according to trend riports neon shades will be neglected on this Spring/Summer, it would be a real mistake to banish these amazing colors from your closet. A bold, slightly extended blazer can be a smart choice, cause it’s easy to match eg. with lace dresses and flat sandals, jeans and a nice blouse or even with slim pants and a simple tops – the opportunities are only limited by your imagination! 🙂

Probably there is an endless line of nice shirts and blouses, this time I’d like to emphasise only to basics: denim shirts and graceful blouses. I own both of them for a long time and wear them every year, they’re so easy to combine in every single season. Denim shorts can be found in big numbers at H&M or Stradivarious stores, I’ve bought mine in the second one – highly recommend!

This year – to my great pleasure – wearing buttoned blouses gonna be a huge trend, so the combinations of summer blouses and huge statement necklaces are limitless! Though I bet you have a white blouse for formal ceremonies, (job) interviews and other official events, this year you should buy some colorful ones too! For example I’ve ordered a mint one from Sheinside in the past few days, so excited to get my package, hope it’ll be fine!

However, damaged jeans and flare jeans are huge favourites this time, I think a simple and classic pair of straight or skinny-styled jeans have to be a part of every women’s closet. Take your time to find the perfect one that suits you the best, and do not feel sorry to spend a little more money, because a perfect jeans can be your good friend through the years. Me, I prefer Zara and Levi’s jeans, but everyone has different fav stores to buy jeans. What’s your favourite one?

After owning the perfect jeans you can search for a more trendy one too. This time we suggest you damaged / ripped jeans. This Spring’s slogan is: “Show your knees, baby!”, which means, after longitudinal hole – decorated jeans this time “knee-flashers” gonna be cool!

After classic jeans we should mention another important basic bottom called white pants. On cooler days it’s great with booties, a nice leather jacket and fur vest, but it will be a practical wearing on hot days too, just combine with strappy sandals or sneakers and a loose, comfy blouse.

Probably skirt lover ladies own a multiple type of skirts with different prints, cuts and lengths. But for the rookie dolls it’s very important to start with a comfy and timeless one. For the first time I suggest a simple, black skirt, (it can be A-lined or pencil styled). The main point is the length: choose a suitable length that makes you feel comfortable and confident!

Feel free to choose cotton skirts, but I recommend the faux leather ones too – I bought mine 3 years ago at Stradivarious and it’s still one of my favourites, took part in countless number of outfits as you can remember.

If you ‘re not a skirt – girl – type, but you’d like to wear something more feminine than shorts, I suggest to try an asymmetrical skort (shorts that look like skirt). It was one of the biggest shots of the last Summer, and as far as I can see it will be a huge trend this Summer as well. You can easily find them at almost every online stores, but there are some beautiful styles at Inditex stores (mainly Zara, Stradivarius and Pull and Bear) too.

I bought my white one last Summer and loved it so much that I had to buy a black one on winter too. Both of them are from Zara and probably they’re one of the most worn items of my closet. Love actually!

During the perfect-bag-choosing-method (cause many of us can’t afford to own countless bags) the main aspect are that we need a practical, big one that matches with everything and also a pretty one for special events. So basically the 2 most important types are:

– a huge shopper for schooldays/workdays or for shoppings and other everyday roles;
– an oversize clutch for the not so heavy days. This one can be a perfect accessory for prettier everyday outfits and not to classy events as well.

If we cannot afford a big bag collection, it’s worth to think in simple colors such as different shades of black, gray, brown or nude – they ‘re gonna match with our casual everyday outfits perfectly. The bolder fashion addicts can choose metallic bags (eg. gold, silver, or bronze), they’re as easy to combine as black ones. On the top, in 2014 metallic clothes and accessories are back in fashion, big yay for that!

There are wide range of big shoppers and totes at H&M (approx. 33 eur) and Zara stores, but we suggest to surf on the Internet and shop online too.

Although I’m a statement necklace lover, this is my favourite topic and I could write hundreds of pages about the basic accessories I think we all need, I try to stay on the main point of this article and highlight only 2 types of accessories this time.

First of all, metallic watches are must haves for a long time, speaking of either a relatively expensive Micheal Kors, Fossil or Guess watch or an ‘affordable’ Asos, Bijou Brigitte and Style and Blog one. We can choose from many different styles: we prefer rhinestoned watches, but also in love with the ones with Roman numbers, linkchains or boyfriend style. Just choose the style that matches your personality most.


Michael Kors

The other, unfortunately rarely mentioned must have accessory I’d like to talk about is a great belt. Actually, when we think about accessories belts are not the first things on our mind, but trust me, a well- chosen belt can highlight your advantageous virtue, and divert attention from your less-advantageous places. A colourful belt can break the monotony of a whole-colored outfit, while an extraordinary one can cheer-up a simple jeans-shirt combo.
I show you bunch of my favourite under the next picture, including simpler and extra ones. Thanks to the Asos Curve collection, plus size women can bravely choose extraordinary belts too – luckily many of them are available in bigger sizes as well.

Against common public opinion, women with feminine style don’t have to survive a whole day on high heels!
Women wearing flat shoes can be really elegant and pretty too, and fortunately flats are much more diversified than we’d first think. For example

– we can choose elegant flat sandals,
– comfy balerinas (both lovely, curvy toe caps and pointed -toes)
– stylish boyfriend shoes or
– cool loafers.

Choosing your favourite from them depends only on your style and sense of fashion.

Is we ‘re speaking abour basics, it is important to mention sneakers. The best thing that could happen to weomen: they’re so beautiful with summer dresses, elegant blazer-jeans combos or lazy ripped – festival shorts. Can’t miss it!

Last but not least, even if you’re not a real high – heels – type, you should keep at least one pair of elegant heeled shoes in your closet. From my point of view classic black heels with pointed toe cap and without platform are the most beautiful and useful ones. You can wear them on special occassions, but they’re also perfect on weekdays too. For those who don’t like black, pastel pink or nude high heels can also be a good choice. The main point is they have to be comfortable, so always choose choose heels that are easy to walk in. Even if you wear them infrequently, it is necessary to feel good, walk stably and be confident!
