Trending for Spring 2014: Monochromatic White Out

Be sure to scroll to the bottom to check out the trend style guide!

So, as announced last week, I am unveiling one of my favorite Spring 2014 trends for the next five weeks. Last week was “Candy-Coated Goodness” which showcased the sweet array of pastels that have hit the runway. Regarding silhouettes, envision a softer look with exquisite and delicate fabrics such as chiffon, silk and tulle.

This week, I wanted to focus on the polar opposite of last week’s style report and turn our attention to another gorgeous trend that I’ve been seeing quite a bit of. Monochromatic White – which I’ve dubbed “White Out“. White is always a favored look for Spring/Summer, however, I have never seen so much white on white. I die – what a chic + polished style! Trust me when I say, I am all for the pops of color and fun trends for each season but there is something about simplicity that goes a long way. White is a classic – and if you are familiar with how that term is used in the fashion world – a classic never goes out of style. The “White Out” look definitely has a more structured silhouette than most trends this season and in some cases, it can be a little boxier.

This Spring, do not be afraid to layer up on the white. White pants, white blouse, white shoes, white blazer…bring it on.

Below are some of my favorite looks from the Spring 2014 runway.

As Outkast would say – so fresh + so clean!  🙂  I seriously cannot get enough! If you’re trying to achieve a well put together, savvy and timeless look – this is most definitely the direction to go in this season. Below are some beauties I found while doing some “virtual window shopping”. The prices vary depending on the item but everything is under $200. Enjoy!
