Who dominated the headlines this year for everything from her Twerk-tastic show performance at the VMAs to her random risqué fashion choice? One and only Miley Cyrus, was she a stylish trendsetter icon or just plain ol’ outrageous character?
The Most Powerful Stylist by The Hollywood Reporter, Leslie knows what she is talking about and let me assure you she means business. As we are heading toward New Year eve, with the help of 100 million users of ask.com, she conclude a list of what’s hot and what’s not and she is glad to share this amazing top 5 style trend prediction with Glam Slam readers.
For 2014, ThÐµ Top Five Style Trends will be:
Rock Star Style:
Arguably the biggest style event of the year, The Met ball, has a theme which is definitely a crossover demeanor from 2013 to 2014. After the Met Ball event, search trend on Ask.com for these styles were skyrocket, and this activity trend remained stable, which indicates that the crossover demeanor echoed everywhere from the red carpet to the street.
Both accessible and high end designers are producing stunning looks, from Tom Ford and Versace to H&M and All Saints. I just only recently helped one of my client and friend, Julianne Moore, find an exquisite red sequined Tom Ford dress for the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund event, and she looked stunning.
With pleats, ruffles and art becoming ubiquitous on and off the red carpet, Simplicity Ñ–Ñ• out (fοr many). The designers are really favoring audacious details, from mural art on Prada’s Spring 2014 collection, to ruffles at Yves Saint Laurent, to Dior’s pleats. But you don’t require a healthy bank balance or a fat check book to adopt these styles.
Big clothing retail stores like Zara, Target and H&M are all offering the very same top trendy stylish embroidered pieces that influence the people on and off the red carpet. In fact the celebrities like Nicky Hilton and Jessica Alba were seen wearing Phillip Lim for Target comic book-inspired BOOM sweater.
There is nothing new about designer’s collaboration, actually a few people aware of the fact that back in 2004, Karl Lagerfeld did a collection for H&M. So in this coming 2014 you may not see a brand new top style trends, but it sure will be a big year for these types of collaborations, results in the availability of top notch quality products for the masses without a heavy price tag.
Personally I loved these hottest designer’s collaborations in coming 2014, from Phillip Lim’s collection for Target, to Anna Dello Russo and Isabel Marant’s collections for H&M, all of which will sold out almost at once. And the launch of these lines reflected by most searched trend shown by ask.com in 2013.
With Kate Moss newly reformed partnership with Topshop and Beyonce signing an contract with H&M, I can bet that in coming year we will surely see incredible collections from both brands. I envision that there will be same rock star style trend will be seen in coming year as well.
This season we witnessed crop top and midriff-bearing styling trend are making their way onto the red carpets (Scarlett Johansson), stages (I probably don’t need to remind anyone about Miley Cyrus) and runways (from Phillip Lim to Balenciaga) and trend will continue in coming year as well.
What’s interesting and not at all surprising, is that, these trendy look won’t be much of a success in the general public. Many questions ignited on Ask.com late this year, then just fade away. Also the site surveyed it’s users, and concluded that only 25% users are willing to adopt this crop look.
This year, from Chloe and Prada to the Birkenstock, flat sandals will make a comeback as a stylish fashion trend. I often suggests using flats to my clients, even on the red carpet (because of her astonishing stature, Charlize Theron wears flats on the red carpet perfectly). As many brands are offering trendy stylish looks, everybody, including celebrities, prefer comfortable over heels, without giving up their flattering outfit.
Other Trends Likely To Be Popular In 2014?
Outerwear as underwear
Oversized trendy looks, including boxy coats and rounded shoulders.
Monochromatic outfits – matching, single color outfits, particularly in blue and grey (a impeccable contrast to the loud, fun rock star style and heavily flamboyant trends)
3 Trends On Their Way Out In 2014?
Peplum will be moonlighted in 2014 which was a big trend for 2013,
Brightly colored denim (that doesn’t include your pastel denim and still be a great choice for next Spring and Summer).
