The spring/summer season in the world of fashion is the most exciting season of all. Now is the time to come out of your shell and show the world what a talented fashionista you are. In the past few months, we have seen dramatic changes in style and fashion. Pieces have gone in and out of trend faster than any of us could notice. Does anyone remember Miley Cyrus in a leotard for example? I think I’ve proved my point.
The best way to stay ahead of the game when it comes to this year’s fashion is to pick out some classic pieces. You can be sure that these pieces will not be going out of style anytime soon, so spending a little extra and investing in them is a great idea. If you think that it is time to revamp your style, then you have come to the right place. Here are just four simple style secrets for 2014.
Invest In A Colourful Handbag
A colourful handbag is an ideal way to stand out from the crowd. Many women opt for black or grey handbags. The type of woman who does this is telling the world that she doesn’t want to stand out. She will do anything to fade into the background. This type of woman is not who you want to be.
Instead, invest in a colourful statement handbag, which will set you apart from other women. In an ideal world, you would get a Chanel side bag in blue or red as these are stylish at the moment. If you cannot afford the Chanel price tag though, opt for something similar from the high street. Top Shop have a fabulous range of handbags and are always at the forefront of trends.
Watches Are Timeless
If there is one rule that you should follow when buying new clothes and accessories, it is to get a good watch. Many women fail to invest in a high-quality watch, even though this will attract a lot of attention and is also functional.
Watches for women are a timeless accessory and one, which should be a feature on every woman’s wrist. Try looking for something simple, yet sleek such as one with a leather strap. Every woman should take the chance to invest in a quality watch which will last her a lifetime.
Maxi Skirts Are Still In
The maxi skirt has been a recurring theme within fashion over the last few summers. There are many reasons that people love this item of clothing so much. A maxi skirt is perfect for a wide range of body shapes and looks flattering on all women. A skirt in this style also allows women to express themselves in summer, without exposing too much.
When paired with a simple crop top, a maxi skirt can do wonders for your body. The strip of skin which people can see between your skirt and top is your rib cage, not your stomach. Showing off this area gives the illusion that you have a washboard stomach, when this may not exactly be the case.
But, So Are Mini Skirts
For those of you that are more daring, though the mini skirt is also a great piece. Lately there has been a surge towards 1960″s style fashion and this item epitomises that trend. If you are going to opt for a mini skirt, go bold. There is no point being shy with this trend, as it just won’t work. Choose an item in a bold and daring colour to show people that you are in control of the look.
By following these simple style secrets, you will look and feel fabulous this year. Don’t be shy when choosing items. Express yourself and have some fun with your look.
