We’re taking a short break from our usual scarf how-to posts to bring you an update on the latest fashion styles for Fall 2014! In honor of Fashion Week, here’s what we’ve discovered.
2014 Autumn fashion forecast is stylish and oh so mod! It’s all about loose knits, floppy hats, fur coats, oversized coats, long sleeved dresses, tall boots, and stunning prints. High street fashion lookbooks are out with some of the most beautiful offerings this fall.
Loose is the new fitted style. Relax and get comfortable with the latest in easy fashion from the hippest to the chicest brands. Here are a few wardrobe essentials to ensure a trendy winter this year.
1) Printed A-line skirt – Back with an undeniably chic bang is the ever immortal retrograde A line skirt. This glorious leg defining and waist accentuating piece of wonder has been featured on Louis Vuitton ramp in a charming print. The versatile autumn wardrobe addition is readily wearable with a knitted top or compact polo neck.
2) Long and Tall Boots – This Autumn Winter is all about rocking your boots to the tune of undeniable style, whether you prefer sky high, over the knee, regular military, or funky animal printed. Make sure your boots are cool and tall. Pair them with any and all sorts of styles from loose flowing maxi skirts to short and long sleeved mini dresses.
3) Sheepskin and Faux Fur – Sheepskin has been spotted everywhere this season from Etro to Prada, and even in Del Boy’s funky psychedelic play of patchwork and color. If you’re sensitive to animal skin, but love the design, faux fur coats are the way to go. Make a statement in a striped or an animal print and uber chic faux fur coat.
4) Roll or Polo neck tops – A guaranteed stylish look this autumn is the classic roll neck top. A perfect accompaniment to any chic retro outfit, a loose fitted high neck sweater will pair beautifully with miniskirts and tall boots.
5) Blanket Coat – As fashion progresses and innovative styles excite fashion followers, this year designers have revealed a hybrid creation in the blanket. A crossover of a poncho and blanket coat, the blanket is a stunning option to simply throw over when the temperatures drop.
6) Trousers – As winter approaches, get warm and en vogue with loose, high-waist, wide leg, and pleated trousers this season. 2014 is all about comfort with culottes, sporty ski pants, and Bernard trousers. They will go fabulously well with platform heels or pumps and matched blouses or button down shirts.
7) Pashminas – Don’t forget about the ever-necessary scarf or pashmina! There are so many ways to wear scarves that it can be hard to keep track. We have resources available on this blog as well as our How To Tie A Scarf resource.
Every so often, I get a print stuck in my head, and I keep wearing and making it until I get sick of it. These days, that print is triangles. I love the geometric print on everything — pants, shirts, jewelry, and of course, scarves. :)
Lately I’ve been seeing triangles everywhere — bags, prints, the runway — so I wanted to make a triangle print scarf of my own. It’s super simple, and you only need a bit of time!
It’s quite simple to add a print to your scarf! You can use this for any technique:
After the scarf was done drying, I wanted to experiment a bit with how to tie an infinity scarf. The thing I love about scarves is that they make an outfit look effortless, but put together, too.
My best attempt at an effortless infinity scarf knot. :) Looking for other ways to tie infinity scarves? Click below to check out the tutorials in the Knot Library!
With our arsenal of 37 Ways to Tie a Scarf (plus more and more ways), the Scarves Dot Net girls are pretty savvy when it comes to scarf knots. So when we find a new knot that we’ve never seen, we get excited — like noisemaker, confetti, and balloons excited.
The other week as I was catching up on my favorite bloggers, I ran across Kayley from Sidewalk Ready looking chic (as always) with a super fancy-looking scarf knot around her neck. Stacie and I got to the bottom of this and dubbed the scarf “fancy braid.” Sometimes life calls for a fancy scarf, so we made this little video to help you get get the look too:
Easy peasey, right? The zebra print scarf in the video is the perfect length and width for the fancy braid.
Here’s Kayley looking very pretty in her fancy braided scarf:
I’ve also been rocking a fancy braided scarf lately:
The heart scarf I’m wearing would be a perfect Valentine’s Day accessory!
So go get fancy, and let us know if you try out this new knot!
