Which spring 2014 fashion trends are for you Part 2

Nikki ParkinsonFashion 34 Comments

Are you playing along with my little spring 2014 fashion trends game?

Yesterday in this post I talked about the work you need to do before you hit the shops for a wardrobe update. Plus, I included five of the spring colour trends that are in store now.

Today we’re focussing on pattern.

You’ll be pleased to know that two of the patterns are classic patterns and if you’re that way inclined with your wardrobe personality you’ve probably got a good supply of them already.

But … as I’ve been known to utter around these parts: you can never own too many striped garments. NEVER. EVER.

If you’re a block colour kind-of-girl then the more classic patterns of stripes and spots may also be a good launch pad for you into the world of patterns.

If you’re a natural-born pattern girl then maybe this is the season you do even more clashing of different patterns.

Let’s get stuck in shall we?

Here are 5 pattern trends we’re seeing in store right now. Come back tomorrow when we look at some of the shapes in clothes and accessories that are making their mark this season.

PS. My blogging friends Kimba Likes and Redcliffe Style are helping us get motivated in our wardrobes for spring with the #springfling hashtag on Instagram – it’s a great addition to my #everydaystyle challenge and will help us re-focus on what we wear when it’s warmer.

  1. Love stripes but can’t seem to bring myself to do spots. Do like a bit of tribal/boho and love printed pants so could see myself picking up some of those over the summer.

  2. Oh stripe lover and polka for lover, not together though. Feathers had an exquisite black & white spot shirt… Sold out in my size but they are doing another batch in new B & W spotty fabric.
    I love the freshness of stripes.
    I love black and white together forever
    I love navy, so smart and not as severe.
    Finally those Gorman sandals… She does the best prints

  3. Stripes fan here too. I’m not a pastel girls, so stripes it will be for me this spring <3. Any other patterned garment (apart from the odd bit if animal print) really only makes a token appearance in my wardrobe.

  4. The fashion gods are smiling on me this spring in making the things I like “on trend”. First with the colours and now with the patterns …. hmmm wonder if we make it 3 from 3 tomorrow with the shapes. Thanks Nikki – this is a great series.

  5. I love stripes and I do love tribal prints ,a little of the op art prints ,spots yes but florals not so much but I don’t mind a floral dress in summer,but I’m not good at pattern clashing!Great series Nikki ,there are so many lovely things this season and great colours too,thank you x

  6. Sporting a brand new floral shirt today. Weather hasn’t quite turned to spring yet in Melbourne, but my wardrobe has! Teamed with a long black boho maxi skirt and my knee high Django and Juliette tan boots (and denim jacket from Big W because damn it was still cold outside this morning). Love the inspiration your blog gives me 🙂
