AW14 Trend Guide

This year the AW14 runway saw an array on different trends and styles. From Star Wars and Fairytales to Grey and 60's Miniskirts, AW14 has a trend to suit just about anyone. After reading a stack of fashion magazines and trawling fashion blogs on the internet I thought I would give you a run down on some of AW14 biggest trends.

1. Grey- One colour that stood out on the runway was grey, and this pleases me no end. I love more neautral, darker colours. Easy to pair with other items and a range of shades that should compliment a variety of skin tones, grey is one colour you will need in your wardrobe this season!! (1, 2, 3, 4)
2. Jewels- When looking at jewels think go big, or go home. Williamson, Dolce and Gabbana, Erdem and Kartrantzou all featured embellishments on their dresses, head pieces and earrings. I have even already seen some pretty snazzy grey, jewel embellished tops in Primark, enabling me to kill two trends in one go. (1, 2, 3, 4)
3. Knitwear- Knitwear is something that is always associated with Autumn and Winter, but this season knits were big and all encompassing, from Stella McCartney's huge knit dresses to Celine's knit skirt and jumper combo. Stylish with the ability to keep you warm in the winter chill. (1, 2, 3, 4)
4. Mini Skirts- For all you gals who like to flash a bit of leg, the 60's are back, with thigh grazing dresses and skirts from the likes of Valentino, Louis Vuitton and Carven. (1, 2, 3, 4)
5. Quilting- Delicate waffle quilting skirts and coats, quilting provides the perfect texture and intrigue to an outfit. (1, 2, 3, 4)
6. Star (Wars)- In a galaxy far far away there was the Bergazzi and Rodarte show....who would have thought that Yoda, Darth Vader and C3PO could look so good on a dress, certainly not me. Star Wars has suddenly gone from geek to chic, and with Vans bringing out a new line of Star Wars themed trainers on the high street, this is one trend that is both accessible and affordable. (1, 2, 3, 4)
7. Totes- In terms of bags totes made a frequent appearence, folded over and carried under the arm. However, if totes aren't your thing, mini trunks and shopping baskets are another bag trend alternative. (1, 2, 3, 4)
8. Velvet- A fabric that can add a touch of luxury to any outfit. I once saw a maroon velvet suit at Hogmanay and let me tell you it looked both expensive and rather eccentric. This red dress from Emilio de la Morena is by far one of my favourite pieces of the entire AW14 shows. (1, 2, 3, 4)
9. Vibrant and Zesty- Think bold graphics, colours and a lot of clashes. An explosion of colour, this trend adds the perfect touch of brightness to the usual dreary and drab winter days. (1, 2, 3, 4)
10. Fairytale- Long flowing dresses and whimsical details, the fantasy and fairytale theme featured heavily in McQueen's, Dolce and Gabbana's and Valentino's AW14 shows. (1, 2, 3, 4)

I would love to know what you think of AW14's trends, and if you want to see more than I highly suggest Vogue's A-Z AW14 Guide and Marie Claire's August 2014 Magazine for more trends and in depth coverage.
