THE LATEST TRENDS: From DKNY Pre-Fall ’14 Collection!


DKNY Pre-Fall 2014 Collection
New York Fashion Week is near! As we get ready for the biggest event in fashion, designers prepare us with their Pre-Fall collections. Many of the lines set the bar for the latest trends to come, giving us ideas of what designers will have to offer this year. If you’re looking to try a New Year style, you should definitely look at pre-fall runways for ideas. Here are a few trends which are stemmed from the DKNY Pre-Fall collection.

Keepin’ It Sporty!

Sporty looks are in this year, from walking sneakers, to jogger pants and baseball caps! Athletic wear has been turned into a fashion statement, as well as a way of comfort. There’s nothing like being able to rock a cute outfit and remain comfortable at the same time. For all the tomboys and women who just like to kick back in a pair of sweatpants, this trend is for you!

All White Everything vs. Black & White Combo
 No white after Labor Day? Said who…no one follows the rule of fashion anymore. Many fashionistas and even celebrities are currently wearing all-white attire from head to toe. The white-on-white trend can be worn on any occasion whether it be to dinner or a shopping day with your girls. You can’t go wrong! Then again, if your not into an all white look, you could make a fashion statement rocking a black and white look. Black and white are no longer colors of formal wear. DKNY has taken it to the next level by incorporating the color combo into sporty and casual looks. If you’re into bright colors and want to tone your wardrobe down a notch, try all-white or black & white look.

Get Straight to Business!
Designers are getting ‘straight to business’ this year in tailored attire! Men’s wear is coming to the forefront in women’s fashion. More women are seen wearing pants suits, blazers, and button ups. DKNY puts a feminine twist on masculine pieces by presenting them in pastel colors. If you’re interested in trying this style, adding a simple blazer to your everyday look is a good way to start!

Every year each designer introduces a new trend to the industry. They give us insight on what fads and trends will make their mark at the beginning of year. With a look at what is to come, you will be able to stay ahead in fashion! All your girls will be asking for tips!

THE LATEST TREND: Baseball Caps!

Leather Snapback
 
Despite the season of the year, baseball caps will always be in style. Baseball caps are easy to style, and great for last minute looks. Famous fashionistas seen rocking this statement are Rihanna, Kat Graham, Ciara and Brandy. Caps started off being worn by athletes and with sporty attire, but now women of all styles have adopted it into their wardrobe. They can be seen worn with jeans and a t-shirt or a flirty dress.

THE LATEST TRENDS: SWEAT IT OUT!

For the longest time, the sweat pant has been looked at as casual piece. Many people wear them to the gym, or simply to be casual and comfortable. This year, joggers has gain new heights in the fashion world.  Now you can find many fashionistas in sweatpants and a pair of heels. BUT, the lounge pants worn in fashion, aren’t your typical thick or over-sized sweat pant. Generally, they are thin and lightweight, designed to be comfortable and fashionable. Celebrities such as Rihanna, are known to wear a sweats and heel combination.

The thing I enjoy most about this trend is being able to be laid-back, but also sassy in your favorite pair of heels. Who said you can’t wear heels with a pair of sweat pants? You get to explore your inner-tomboy, and still look sexy doing it.
Here are a few more celebs struttin’ their stuff in lounge pants and heels:
Ali Larter in a loose v-neck shirt, grey joggers, and matching pointy heels.
 
Cassie wears white joggers, topped off with a red bandeau, leather jacket, and black booties.
Beyonce takes a different route in leather sweats, a black blazer, fedora, and brown booties.
 
Lala Vasquez stays trendy in grey lounge pants, with black patch work. She compliments her look, adding a graphic tee, leather jacket, and black booties.
 
As you can see, the trendy sweat pant doesn’t only come in a cotton and dull grey. Designers have adopted this trend and upped the ante. Retailers are offering them in leather, silk, jersy, and even a combination of fabrics. They’ll be great to wear as we transition to the chilly weather of fall. I might just purchase a few pairs myself, and wear them throughout the season. I’m anticipating to try the new look!
