This is the summer I have been waiting for. Upcoming women’s fashion trends for the summer of 2014 align themselves perfectly to my recent obsession with Boardwalk Empire and 1920’s vintage styles! So break out your oxford pumps, ladies, and get ready to embellish with flapper flair!
Women’s Hat Styles
Wide-brimmed straw hats are the perfect summer accessory. In addition to their bold fashion appeal, they also add shade and protection against damaging sun rays. These straight or floppy summer classics come in a variety of colors and are the perfect accent to beach or artistic-bohemia attire! Pair with your favorite maxi dress and sandals, and enjoy the sunshine! Fashion & Style notes that this year will also see a surge in popularity for the classic hat models. The women’s fedora has maintained its growth in appeal, adding a touch of class to simple leggings, jeans, or slacks. And the bucket, bell, and cloche hats ring with elegance from another era!
If you are still not sold on hat-wearing, a wide selection of fashionable headbands offers something for hair of all lengths. Glamour encourages statement kerchief twists for short hair, or vintage-style headbands in wavy locks. Floral and glitzy headbands are not just for weddings anymore. Jeweled pieces are perfect for low or high up-dos, casual or formal attire. Chain headbands are also on the rise. There are many head chain hair trends on Pinterest!
Women’s Costume Jewelry
In the Spring-Summer Pre Collection, Chanel foretells draping chain necklaces, dangling drop earrings, and a lot of pearls! Costume jewelry has hit the big-time! Quadruple-wrap and knot your long pearl strings, and arrange multi-layer chains with bold, statement colors! Perhaps it is even time to bring back the cameo? Multi-wrap pearl strands add a classic touch to nearly any ensemble-from jeans to khakis, business-casual to formal! Bold bracelets and large pendant necklaces are the quintessential statement pieces! Combine these adornments with solid colors to maximize the effect!
This summer’s fashion trends are sure to draw attention. The timeless appeal of these accessories has preserved them for almost a century, and now they are ready to thrive again. The best part about all of these accessories is their diversity. There are so many customizable options; the possibilities are endless! This is the summer for self-defining accessories! Get ready to turn some heads and roar like the 20s!
