Prints are generally preferred during all seasons. In the autumn-winter trend, the strict geometrical patterns colored in neutral shades seem to be the most common prints. But in the spring-summer trends, everybody chooses colorful and vibrant patterns, with unusual sizes and shapes.

When selecting a floral print, you have to remember that small patterns combined with light colors are best for types of bodies with fine thighs. Large patterns with dark shades are suited for types of bodies with large hips. Also, you should keep in mind to combine the shade of pattern with the central color of your look.
Animal prints maintain their position in the preferences of designers so you can easily wear a printed skirt from last year’s collections and accessorize it with jewelry or sun glasses of current collections. Although animal prints are still trendy and popular, this year neon, brilliant, vibrant and unnatural colors are the most favorite shades.
When choosing a leopard print skirt, bear in mind the shape of your body and remember that vibrant, light colors quickly draw attention. If you have voluptuous thighs, wear prints with classic dark colors combined with a top in lighter shades. This way you will balance your outfit while you will still be able to wear your amazing printed skirt and look fabulous, as well.
One of this season’s print craze are the triangles, grids, concentric circles and other geometric prints. Stripe, plaid, houdstooth and rhomb represent basic pattern for this summer’s collections. If you want to know what you should choose, you have to keep in mind the shape of your body and these tips: if you have rounded hips, select skirts with rhombus, plaid or houndstooth. Select horizontal stripes and houndstooth for a slim, athletic body and, if your hips are actually wider than your shoulders, choose skirts with dark colors and thin vertical strips that will suit you most.
Tiny details make a significant difference. Accessorize your printed skirt with a nice belt, a pretty top or with your favorite jewelry and you will certainly make a great impression!

…wants to appear amazing, yet people with bad taste in fashion seem to surround us every day. This can become quite frustrating, the lack of style and the color disagreement could make us laugh or, even worse, it may cause us depression.
The truth is that the fashion designers always come with interesting ideas, surprising us with trends of all tastes, to suit everybody. But we still wear similar clothes, tasteless and impersonal outfits, blaming the lack of time or money for not purchasing better clothing. And these reasons are not at all as important as the matter of a good taste.
…cultivate in yourself the sense of style if you truly want. There are some principles of good taste in fashion that everybody should know.
First of all, select pieces that can be combined easily, pullovers, tops, jeans and blouses that match, as well as shoes, bags and accessories which will suit your style and personality. Choose to have few things of high quality rather than more clothes, but cheap and fake. Because cheap clothes will make you look cheap.
…follow fashion blindly, especially if the trends do not suit you. Every style can be modified a little, to your own desires and interests. Also, select the color combinations very carefully, because some colors may be unflattering for your look, while some combinations can really spice up your appearance.
Shoes represent the finishing touch to your look, being able to make your legs longer, hiding your lack of height and even make you feel more comfortable and beautiful. Buy high quality shoes, they look better, you can wear them longer and they will not hurt your feet.
…but not least, wear clothes that are in harmony with your mood, your character and with the season of the year and have measure if you really wish to appear stylish and exciting.
Coco Chanel said that “Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening”. And since fashion is such an essential part of our existence and we sometimes follow trends automatically, devoid of thinking if some style suits us, we still select “fashionable” looks that are not right for us.
It is important to consider a lot of aspects when we decide to purchase or wear trendy clothing, as well as when we choose our shoes or even our hairstyle. Here are some Fashion Do’s and Don’ts for 2014.
Because 2014 is an intriguing year for hairstyles, from bob and pixie crop to shoulder length, soft curls and long hair, depending on what we desire, a younger, cheerful look or something a little more elegant, the radical hairstyles are definitely popular.
Jumpsuits are preferred in 2014, dressed in various looks, with scarves or suited jewelry which highlight the flowing cuts, the body – hugging or cute jumpsuits that can make us look fantastic. However, some jumpsuits seem to be workman clothes and, even worse, the jumpsuits with vertical stripes will make you look like a prisoner.
Pink is the favored color of 2014, used for dresses, shirts, coats or pants, as well as for nail polish, bags, clutches and even for shoes.
Leggings are also a big thing this year, but it is essential to combine it with stylish longer tops if you want to look elegant or sexy. Worn with short tops, the leggings will make you appear weird.
Mixing color and bold prints is also a great idea, but choose something to match your physics and personality if you want to look stunning, yet fashionable. Accessorize with good taste and your clothes will make you unique and exciting.
