Fall/Winter 2014 Fashion Color/Pattern Trend

Winter is almost here. It’s the time of the year where we really need to buy new clothes and stock up for the cold winter (In Toronto at least..). Today, I will tell you 3 colors, 3 patterns and 1 style that you need to know for winter 2014. Keep reading and find out!

Winter 2014 style has very structured looks. Straight waist-line and baggy pants are staples for this winter. Wool coat is also a hit this season because of its sophisticated look. I find that the color palette trend is almost minimalist with a pop of color (if you wish).

Gray is a really big color this Fall and Winter. Not only that it is seen on runways, but it is also a statement color in many clothing departments. The gray that is trending is cool-toned and light. You can also opt for a light blue toned grey if you want some color.

Blues

There are two types of blues that are really in trend at the moment – Navy Blue, and Pastel Blue. Navy blue gives a sophisticated look while pastel gives a more youthful and playful look.

Neutrals

Need me to say no more. Neutrals are a basic in all seasons, however, it is used very heavily this winter! Light neutrals on neutrals gives such a pure look making the outfit look like an angel in the snow. Try layering 2-3 neutrals in different shades but shares the same undertone. For eye-focus, choose a pop of color to wear (purse, accessories, scarf, etc.)

Plaid

I am very pleased to say that plaid is no longer just a flannel thing. I am not a big flannel girl, so wearing plaid was always a challenge for me. I am super stoked this year about all the plaid coats and shoes though! The plaid can really dress down a sophisticated look and keep it “hobo chic”.

 Leather

Whether real or faux, leather is a safe bet for this fall/winter. The only thing to keep in mind is to NOT overdo it. A hint of leather is best. If not, faux leather pants and comfy sweater is also a to go look this winter. The big difference between this year’s leather pants and previous years is that faux leather leggings are now transitioning to thicker pants with zippers and pockets. The thicker pants allows a looser fit which is what this winter is all about — warm and comfy.

(Faux) Fur

This winter’s biggest texture is fur. A (faux) fur vest is perfect because you can layer on more when it gets colder but avoid the trouble of having to stuff your sleeves into the jacket. You can also opt for fur neck wrap to not only warm yourself up but also adds a luxurious look to your outfit.

Last but not least, don’t be afraid to use bold colors even in winter!

Turtleneck Sweater

Talula-Grey-Sweater

I remember when turtleneck was a total grandma’s thing, BUT it is coming back, ladies! To make sure you separate from granny to chic, pick loose turtlenecks (Not the kind that chokes you a little), and wear an interesting bottom. From floral to faux leather, whatever style you’re feeling. Cropped turtleneck sweaters are also a way to make sure it looks trendy!
