Macy’s Trending for Spring/Summer 2014

The newest fashion trends for the spring and summer are bright colors, and relaxing styles. Colored loafers are back in season, so are casual oxfords and boat shoes. These new styles show an image of cool and casual because now the code of “dressed to impress” consists of shorts and a seersucker blazer. Also new light materials are being shown off to give breathability to your everyday clothing by featuring very light and airy fabrics with colors and patterns you would see on a holiday trip to the Hamptons, Miami, or Italy. There is absolutely nothing missing from these styles to back up your globe-trotting and high end lifestyle, except for maybe a beautiful female by your side. But that might be an option that will come later, after the clothes are worn and observed.

Trending now are the brighter pastel colored shorts, polo’s and blazers with a weekend casual vibe. The top designers who are already showing off their casual spring and summer collections are Hugo Boss, Ralph Lauren, Tommy Hilfiger, Lacoste, Tallia, and Nautica. Each has its own style, however the most uniquely designed piece is the Hugo Boss blazer with zipper shoulder sleeves which can be taken off and made into a vest. So with Hugo Boss, whether it’s chilly or hot the same blazer can be used and worn in a multitude of ways. Casual formal with the full blazer, rocker-hip with the sleeves unzipped to form a vest, or just with a t-shirt in both scenarios. Spring is in the air and summer is coming. Bright cool colors and fabrics are going to be all over the streets soon, so why not get your jump on the seasons fashion now? Don’t be a follower, be the trendsetter this season!

Calvin Klein shows during Milan Men’s Fashion Week Fall/Winter 2014-15

Three words came calling out at the CK show for fall 2014. Obsession, Eternity, and Escape. Maybe that’s because they were imprinted of numerous sweatshirts throughout the show. All of which are the fragrance collections of the CK brand. Cross marketed with the new line of clothing made for the male going to combat or the jungle was the theme here. Dominating the show with brown, beige and military greens it feel as if hiding in the sand dunes was a daily routine. To do that you have to be comfortable and that’s why the sweatshirts made so much sense here. It could feel like an eternity, and all you may want is to escape. It would definitely have to be an obsession to be in that environment. But if you are there, then comfort again has to be key. Being comfortable comes easy with the various loose fitted trousers in both beige and army green. Also having a dual use design with the quilted bronze military style flap jacket not only created functionality but substance to keep warm during the harsh fall and winter months this is meant for. If it’s a battle with the elements you seek, a set of puffer and bomber jackets should be your best friend. Style was a major factor and even though there were the browns, grays, and army green dominant styles, each design had various shades layered on top of one another to contrast the different looks. No great collection is complete without some great leathers with the distressed leather jackets, backpacks and moccasin boots. The show did return to a suited theme in the end with a caramel colored blazer and ending the show with three black tuxedos all with different colored lapels in black, metallic gray, and burgundy. Taking a chance on a military and safari color and theme is a slight gamble and runways are meant for expressions and taking chances. Once it reverted back to the suits and tuxedo’s everything felt normal again and the battle was over. Not that it wasn’t a great journey, just that some things we love for what they always are.
