Today, yes today, it’s 2014. Incase you haven’t already read my closet cleaning post here, I think it’s something we should all do for the New Year. After donating the clothes you really do not want to bring into 2014, I’ve made a list of the things that I’m looking forward to adding to my wardrobe for the year.
It looks like this trend is here to stay, for a while. But with a new take. I bought a pair of boyfriend jeans two summers ago, the cut is kind of strange now though. I will be donating them for a new and improved cut. Something more like this,
My old boyfriend jeans are low slung, which can be very unappealing to the.. rear area. So, I’m investing in some higher cut ones, which will give a more flattering silhouette. Urban Outfitters has an awesome pair (click here).
I. Need. More. As a New Years resolution, I’m only going to use the curling wand once every two weeks.. which is nothing. I’m going to let my hair run wild and free once again, as I urge everyone else too. Your natural hair is awesome. But this means I need things to spice up my hair.
Well, the good news is I’ve seen a lot of hair trends coming in for the season. My favorite, bows and headbands are all over the place.
For a toned down version, styles like this are available at H&M and Forever 21. Let your hair be crazy, fluff it up, and add some accessories.
Tea Length Skirts
I love wearing skirts because well.. they’re just more comfortable than pants. To me, whoever started the rumor that skirts were uncomfortable is a liar. I love my short skater skirts, but for 2013 I’m going to attempt to give longer skirts a try.
I think they’re very versatile; boots, graphic t-shirts, swears, crop tops in the summer, sandals, etc. So I hope I’ll find the perfect one for 2014 and give the look a try like this one at Top Shop.
I have a few from American Apparel which are perfect, but I’ve been kind of afraid to wear them, why? Not really sure. But I’m taking the risk for 2014. They’re so easy to layer with cardigans and button up shirts or even some high wasted pants or skirts.
I think crop tops are completely tasteful if you take my Mom’s advice; if your stomach will be completely showing try to cover your legs. Vis vera, all around. If you have some cleavage showing, wear pants, or if you have a skirt wear a less revealing top. It’s a way to keep the class. Stores like Urban Outfitters have great crop tops this season.
I’ve been seeing more and more of this lately, from Alexander Wang to people passing on the street to club wear. Peep-through net see through. I want to give it a try, but in a different way. (Honestly I’m tired of the revealing you can see it but you kind of can’t club wear)
This 2014 trend for me translates into many things like skirts and tops
I’m looking forward to upgrading my closet this year, making everything more in tune with everything else. Isn’t it aggravating sometimes to have clothes that are just random and you can’t wear with your other pieces? I personally think for my closet these pieces will tie in the old and random all together. My goal is to avoid the mess this year and plan out the looks and trends I’m going for and mature my clothing a bit! Mix some new with the old! Happy New Year everyone!
