We are in the grips of a cold and snowy winter which feels to me like an excellent time to start looking at the emerging fashion trends for Spring 2014 and dreamily imagine what we'll be wearing and what we'll want to add to our wardrobe once the warmer weather returns. 

The overall theme for the coming season is feminine, sexy, chic, relaxed and sporty.

Floral Patterns
Pretty floral patterns are a major trend for spring 2014. They have been prominently featured on the runways in flouncy skirts and dresses in feminine silhouettes. The floral patterns are seen in all-over prints as well as floral collages set against a plain background.
Oscar de la Renta
Exposed Midriffs
Bared midriffs were a big trend on the runways which featured cropped tops and bralets as well as inverse buttoning where the top few buttons of a top are buttoned and the rest are left undone allowing the top to float open. 
Diane von Furstenberg
Sheer Fabrics
The sheer trend continues this season with the use of peekaboo panels, sheer stripes, sheer fabrics over opaque undergarments, as well as semi-translucent layered fabrics giving dimension to garments.
Cushie et Ochs

Word Play
Text with a play on words were featured as statement pieces on garments and accessories. The text tends to be witty and clever words and statements rather than logos.
Alexander Wang
Sports Luxe
The sports luxe trend continues in its popularity this season in styles that are chic, relaxed and casual. An athletic aesthetic of sport-chic included exaggerated v-neck tennis sweaters, racing stripes, perforated fabrics and varsity jackets.
Ralph Lauren
Fringes made of leather, silk and beading were used in a variety of ways from evening to casual wear. The embellishment is modern and adds to the overall feel of fluidity this season. 
Emilio Pucci
Wide Leg Pants
The ultra-chic, easy to wear wide leg returns in a billowy silhouette for trousers, Bermuda shorts and culottes.
