2014 Fashion Trends We Are Looking Forward To
We know animal prints have been popular in years past but this you it is all about animal accents. What does that mean? Instead of the leopards spots, you will be sporting a tee with the whole leopard on it or a dress that features an adorable little bird like this Blue Bird Free Skirt Pattern!
2. Sweaters in Unexpected Places
Out of all the fall 2014 fashion trends, this might be my number one. The new material to work with this fall is sweaters and knits. This means sweater tees, sweater dresses (we have seen these before, but they should never go away), and even sweater pants. Prepare to be comfy while sporting knitalicious wearables like this Comfy Chic Sweatshirt Dress!
Okay, so I never really thought I would be into Viking-inspired ideas. Big fur vests and pointed ears? I couldn’t exactly where that on the subway, but leave it up to the design world to change my mind. From cute sweater prints to insanely warm vests, faux furs and other Nordic accents are going to be all the rage. Get started on a Faux Fur Vest Tutorial today!
4. Swinging 60s
Last year, the vintage sewing trends and store-bought pieces were all about the subdued office wear. Everyone wanted to look like a secretary for Mad Men. Now the sixties-inspired fashion trends are more Nancy Sinatra than Betty Draper and I am thrilled. Make one of these Totally Twiggy Mod Dress patterns are you will be on-trend before everyone else.
You didn’t think animal accents meant that animal prints were out, did you? If you did, you were wrong. The patterns that are a part of the 2014 fall fashion trends on the rise are one thing: bright! This means the usual subdued and woodland-friendly browns, greens, and autumnal patterns are going to stay in your closet in lieu of the bright and the beautiful.
