1If after a 2 week blog break one thing is certain, it’s that I’ve missed you all loads! Hope you had a fantastic holiday and tons of fun, while keeping it in style. Or not. God knows a bit of fashion break comes in handy once in a while.

But, all is not lost and here we are, back in the business of fashion ready to kill it this year. Resolutions in sight, and on we go with our pretty little fashion lives. fashionistasSpeaking of resolutions, aside from working more for better results my #1 remains the gym. OK, laugh all you want at my unoriginal 2014 resolution, but if I’m not ready to give up cropped tops (2014 Trend Alert) or uber short shorts this summer… I’d better get my now-fat-stuffed-like-a-pig body to the gym.

Moving on, to start off the year I thought why not talk about the 2013 trends we wanna keep in 2014, or those we just had enough of. I am so curious where you guys stand on some of these, so let’s begin.

1. 90’s Grunge Trend 90s-grunge-stylePfff. I swear this decade can be so redundant these days. I mean, to some extent today, everything is a 90’s something. A reinvention. A forgotten trend, look or dusted style done by God knows who, and just because it’s those 90’s it suddenly looks cool & hip. 

Still… with all the eyerolling and effing this 90’s invasion may get, I’m kinda… sorta… not ready to kill it yet. 

This massive trend (click here for more on the 90s) has tons of looks. Let’s see which we’ll keep or kill.

#1 Cropped Tops. 

cropped-tops-style2014-trend-cropped-topscropped-top-lookcropped-topstreet-style-cropped-topsI say: Keep It! What do you think? (more on this trend here)

#2 Leather.

It IS everywhere. A little bit too much: leggings, trousers, shorts, skirts, dresses, tops. Not to mention the ubiquitous leather jackets that everyone with a penchant for grunge or not (this last bit pisses me off, but let’s not go there) is wearing. all-leather-look-streetstyleleather-shorts-trendleather-trend-2014peplum-leather-jacketstreet-style-leather-dress-lookNot ready to give it up though. Leather anything? Keep it.  

#3 Motorcycle Boots.

Uber cool & rockroll, but again a bit too been there done that by now, so why not switch them with combat boots. (more on this dilemma here). I think these will be huge this season. Example: combat unlaced boots with a flirty flowery dress. Perfection. combat-and-moto-boots-stylecombat-boots-street-stylemoto-bootsstreet-style-motorcycle-bootsKill the moto. Keep the Combats.

#4 Military. 

Errr. Don’t know about this one. Personally I think I’ve done it enough to last me a few seasons. Will not say no to a great combat jacket, shirt or trousers if I really really really love it, but as far as I’m concerned, I can live without this one.

2. Sporty Luxe Trend

Now this one, alongside the 90s grunge was massive and it still is making waves. 2014 SS is all about sporty chic looks, so I think it’ll stick around for one more season. But, what do we keep and what do we kill?

#1 Wedge Sneakers.

Ah. These are everywhere. They used to be so cool back in the day, now everyone is doing them, which makes me wanna say Kill it. Although I do love them. (more here)Milan-Fashion-Week-Street-Stylesneakers-trend (2)bright-sneakerssneakers-trendstreet-style-wedge-sneakers (2)street-style-sneakersstreet-style-kicksI would trade them for bright neon kicks which I think will be massive this year. Keep it!   

Converses will always be hip, and those I will never give up, don’t care what the trends say.

#2 Sweatshirts.

kenzo-sweatshirtmusic-band-sweatshirtssporty-luxe-trend-street-sty;esweatshirt-lookAs long as the green Kenzo ones are gone, I’m all for these, especially plain ones mixed with skirts and heels. With that one amendment, I say, Keep it! (more looks here)

#3 Bombers.

Definitely: Keep it! According to the runways, 2014 Spring Summer will be all about the boxy cropped jackets & Bombers in the most appealing textures, colors & prints. (more on this trend here)2014-trend-bomber-jacketbomber-jacketbombers-trend-2014street-style-bomber-jacketIt’s only for a while they reappeared in fashion (reminiscent of STILL those 90s), and they are a great alternative to the leather jacket or blazer.

3. Pointy/Stiletto Nails Trend stiletto-aqua-nails-lookThis one, to me, is a Keeper, but I think a kill it situation for the rest of the world. They’ve been around for sooo long and are not too comfortable for, well, anything. Plus, so many girls out there love shorter nails, that I think this trend will slowly die. Not for me, though. I love them. ;) nail-art-stiletto-nailsWhy?

In a sea of grungy looks & sporty styles, or men inspired fashions, stiletto nails are the perfect touch of girly glam. Although I’m not wearing my nails pointy all the time, when I do, like in heels, I feel irresistible. They’re that card that gives me a free pass at wearing the most unflattering thing, or being total slob but looking polished. Or posh. lips and nailslong-nailsstiletto-nails4. Peplum Trend giovanna-bataglia-peplum-jacketPlease, for the love of God, make it stop. To me this is a definite Kill it situation, but for the rest of the world it’s probably a keeper. Reversed nails thing. (more here)peplum-trend-2014street-style-peplumstreet-style-peplum-top5. Hats Trend hat-trendsThese have to have a massive comeback. They are certainly trying to for a while now and I think they will stick. (more looks here) Beanies have. Baseball hats have, so why not this boho-chic version of the cover-your-head-with-something, right? fedora-hat-trend-2014street-style-hatbaseball-hat-trendI say Keeper to all these. Especially fedora hats! Ah.

    90’s:.I think that it would be fade away…maybe in 2 years. You know now we’are oh so 90’s because (for many of us) it’s something like The Back to the Past, to the Childhood. It’s clear sentiment. But we’ll see.
    Crop tops: I think they wouldn’t stand the test of time. But maybe I’m wrong.
    Leather: it’s seems to be immortal.
    Motorcycle boots and sweatshirts : I don’t know… You know, I mean there are some items of clothing which you don’t ‘mark’ as trendy or no trendy…like a jeans: they were, they’re and they’ll be. I think these two would be kept.
    Military: well, it’s so repeated trend so I guess it’ll always be in the fashion mainstream.
    Wedge sneakers: Personally, I really don’t like them – what is it? Dafaq?
    Pointed nail: I like long nails but not so sharp, but there is no accounting for tastes :)
    Hats: Well, I wore them before this huge comeback so you know…It’s matter of individual style, one loves it while the other hates it… Nonsense is to force yourself to wear something in the name of fashion :)

    I agree!! kill the peplum! when it blew up i was sure (hoping) it would be a quick fad and never bought anything peplum. I reluctantly bought one peplum jacket only because it was on super clearance. but, i’m over it. The wedge sneakers, pointy nails..not a fan either ;)… to each her own! looove the bomber jacket, bright sneaks, and crop tops (just wish i could pull off crops). And as overdone as leather is…it will always be in style, especially in moderation. great post!
