See below for our top picks, and in case you need a refresher for our thoughts on this season, check out the previous post on our favorite trends from the runways for fall/winter 2013!The Trend: All-White Ensembles
Hardly a show went down the runway without its share of crop topped, midriff baring looks. Coming on strong for another season, belly-baring tops turned up paired with full skirts, Bermuda shorts, and high waisted trousers. But for Spring 2014, cropped styles aren’t just showing a sliver of skin; it’s a full on cut above; showing off wider waistlines in overall sultry, ultra-feminine looks.

The Trend: Logos
Oh the 90’s, how the world never seems to want to let that decade go. From boy bands to grunge, the nineties are having their latest comeback moment with the reappearance of logo mania. From DKNY, where the bold branding was hard to miss to Alexander Wang’s more subtle and blurred treatment of splashing his name across his clothes, everyone seems to have been bitten by the nineties nostalgia bug. Whether this throwback is for better or worse, the resurgence of the logo will help make it easier to answer that ever present question of “Who are you wearing?”

Think spring; think fresh flowers, warm weather, and all things absolutely pretty. Many spring looks on the runway during New York Fashion Week had an ultra-feminine commonality with floral prints and sheer fabrics. Floral prints bloomed at Alice + Olivia, Ruffian, Vivenne Tam and Nicole Miller shows, giving each garment – whether it was a dress, a top, a skirt, or a jacket – a jovial and spirited feel. Sheer fabrics peeked through in Emerson’s dresses and tops, Joanna Mastroianni’s gorgeous gowns and Mathieu Mirano’s cocktail dresses, giving the designs a light and multi-dimensional look that any woman can effortlessly pull off. Nicole Miller’s finale song, “Girls Just Want to Have Fun,” topped it all off and gave everyone the assertion that a feminine way of dressing is most certainly still in!
