Trending for Spring 2014: Time Travel

Be sure to scroll to the bottom to check out the trend style guide – everything is under $100!

We are now on week five of my favorite Spring 2014 trends. Last week was “Sheer Bliss” which showcased gauzy fabrics that add a touch of romance and femininity to any wardrobe. So what is my final Spring 2014 trend that I will be highlighting? Let’s put it this way – it was something I was super excited about sharing because it brought back some serious nostalgia.

Two words: Time Travel. For all of you who grew up in the 80s and 90s, we are going to be channeling our inner young girl. The “Time Travel” trend takes us back to when things were totally awesome.

When checking out the Spring 2014 runway shows, I saw a few trends that really stood out to me: crop tops, denim on denim, overalls, neon and yes – even jelly shoes or “Jellies”. After reflecting on the research I conducted, I came to the conclusion that each of these components have a common denominator. These trends are all reminiscent of the late 20th century.

Now don’t fret – I cannot imagine frosted tips or stick-on earrings will come back around anytime soon! But make a statement with neon colors, rock your crop top and throw on some overalls – because this Spring we are in for a radical ride!

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

Love these looks! I am especially a sucker for anything neon – the brighter the better! Below is a shopping guide of some fun pieces I found while doing some “virtual window shopping”. Everything is under $100 so you can achieve the runway look for less. Enjoy!
