Glam Grunge By The Style Duo: Mindy and Paula Shapiro

There is nothing more exciting than seeing spring clothes hit the racks at your favorite stores. The spring fashions of 2014 deliver fun, happy colors and interesting and detailed fabrics, so fashionistas get ready to pack away those winter sweaters and start embracing lighter and more whimsical styles.Thanks to Mercedes Benz Fashion Week back in September, we got a great first glimpse at what’s in store for spring – feminine and airy prints, ethnic and tribal patterns and a great new and fresh approach to grunge called glam grunge.

Here,The Style Duo breaks down the top 10 trends for spring 2014:

1. Florals – We got a taste of the floral trend last
spring when we saw perennials popping up on flowy tops
and skinny jeans. This season we are going to see vibrant
floral prints on everything from jumpsuits to maxi dresses.
Minty blues, yellows and soft pink will be prominent in this
feminine pattern.

2. Glam Grunge – Grunge makes a comeback,
but don’t expect to see the same Seattle-inspired casual
grunge we saw in the 1990’s. Spring 2014 is calling for a
more glamorous take on the grunge look. We will see the
same relaxed flowy dresses with biker jackets and denim
vests but the fabrications will be richer and the patterns
more modern and embellished.

3. nautical – Jumpsuits and shirtdresses will play an
important role in this next spring trend. Look for gingham
checks and stripes to add a little clean and simple fun to
your wardrobe.

4. White – The crisp white shirt is coming back this
season, as well as the white dress. Tuck your shirts into
ripped boyfriend jeans for a casual cool day look and wear
your white dresses with a light leather jacket for a great
date night.

5. Pink – Pink shoes, dresses, shorts…you name it!
Pink is back big time so embrace your girly girl side and
make this hot hue part of your wardrobe.

6. Tribal – We were introduced to this Indian- and
Moroccan-inspired trend last year and it’s going strong in
2014. Expect to see embellished pencil skirts, patterned
jackets and cozy knits.

7. Mod – Bright and geometric prints were all the
rage on the runways back in September, so get ready to
go retro now that this trend is finally hitting all the racks at
your favorite department stores. Try an A-line shift dress
or cropped pants to transport you back to the 1960’s.

8. Spring Plaid – We were mad for plaid this winter
and we are checking out this trend again this spring. Look
adorable in plaid halter dresses and skirts and pair them
with peep toe booties for super-stylish look.

9. Red – Red has major staying power as far as what
colors keeping trending. Poppy is a flattering fave this
spring and easily brightens any look.

10. Hair accessories – The side part is back
in style and so are hair accessories. Gold barrettes,
headbands and leather ties will make a big statement this
