Now, let us take a few moments to say goodbye to the old and boring trends from 2013. As we are saying our last good-byes, let us also take a moment to cheer on the new trends we can look forward to in 2014!
Blinding Neon Hues: The neon trend is so dated, it has traveled back to the 1980’s; where it belongs. Good riddance to blinding colors!
Emerald Green: You were a pretty hue for 2013, and helped everyone stay away from pinchers on St. Patrick’s Day, but your day is done. Buh-bye!
Pointed, long nails: Rihanna is the only person who can pull off pointed, long fingertips. Stop filing your fingernails into lethal weapons and keep them neat and clean. Pointed nails are over. Unless you are Rihanna, then carry on, they look fabulous on her; only her!
Stacked bracelets: The party is over. Stop stacking ten pounds of metal on your wrists. Stacked bracelets are over, kaput, done. Only wear one bracelet at a time.
Short shorts: Cuts offs which barely cover, shorter than short shorts; they are over! Thank goodness. Look for much longer lengths in 2014. Think Bermuda.
Drawstring Handbags: The “IT” handbag for 2014 is the drawstring handbag. More “IT” points if you own one by Mansur Gavriel.
Radiant Orchid: Pantone’s color of 2014 is a beautiful purplish-pink. Get ready to mix this color with shades of purple, pink, blue, green and more! It will also be popping up in the years’ hottest prints! Love it!
Medium color palettes: Bright and blinding colors had their day, 2014 is all about medium shades of rainbow colors. Look for a large selection of blues, purples and pinks to choose from.
Dark nails: The vampy nail polish look is back. Look for deep purples, blues and black. Keep your nails trim and chip-free. Hawt!
Simple jewelry: 2014 is all about simpler jewels. Reach for one statement bracelet, or a few delicate necklaces to layer. No layered bracelets, only necklaces! Get it, got it, good.
Happy shopping, have a great New Years, and stay fabulous! 😉
