Pink, Fluffy & Retro
I have seen a lot in Topshop recently which echos the all-American-sweetheart, but I think SS14 will be the time that the retro girly girl really shines through. Think Clueless's Cher, but even more pink and fluffy!
The Circular Midi Skirt
I have had mine waiting in the wardrobe for about a year and a bit, brought from a vintage store for just £2, I just couldn't resist the rich floral print! My advice, head to a vintage store, pick up a full, mid length floral skirt and team with a cute top. Wear the top off the shoulders with red lips for an added bit of va-va-voom to this otherwise ladylike style.
The Lace / Net Skirt
Ok, so when is sheer never big?? Seriously! This New York Fashion Week sees the next big thing for sheer, the lace/netter skirt warn over or under mini skirts/dresses or over-sized tops. This look can either add a cheeky touch of elegance to a mini skirt or inject some femininity into the laid back baggy-T style.
The Bow, The Turban & The Veiled Hat
Ever since fashion week of AW13, the beanie has been making a come back, but this time with a veil. And not to be outdone the turban makes a re-appearance to accompany the craze for thrift shop fashion, while the bow neatly complements the ladylike vibe this SS14.
The Black & White Clash
Another thing I have noticed this season was that strong clashing (or overly matching) prints were hitting the street hard, specifically a black and white miss match, with emphasis on stripes. Maybe it is the dramatic contrast or out love of pattern, but this trend is definitely one to watch.
The New Hair Florals
If you haven't noticed this summer has been alive with florals, ever since Lana Del Ray sported a floral crown. Well you'll be happy to hear the trend is now evolving into something more elegant to marry with the ladylike trends. This SS14 we see little flowers daintily positioned in perfect up-dos. And then you get Lady Gaga (LOVE HER!!!!) who takes it to new lengths, yet again pushing the fashion limits, encouraging our more adventurous side.
