Trending ~ Winter 2014 (Guest Writer)

So, here I am, writing my first blogpost… I am a 24year old Buyers’ Assistant for a international  retail company and a part time fashion design student. I don’t follow all trends blindly, I like to see what’s out there and make my own style. (Nothing too outrages though) I am in no way a professional, but here is my take on the top trends for winter 2014.

I like to call this style Girly Grudge and it is an ensemble of items I would wear this winter.

I absolutely love this style.  It gives you the freedom to let the rocker goddess/emo child/military brat inside of you make an appearance without looking like you’re going to a dress up party.


Here are my must have items for this style.


Pleather. (synthetic leather made out of plastic)Whether it’s a skirt, biker jacket or leggings make sure you kit out your closet with at least one pleather piece.  Opt for darker colors if you are looking for a timeless piece. I recommend pairing a pleather biker jacket with a graphic tee, dark jeans and a pair of funky kicks. Trade the kicks for a pair of heels and you are ready for a night on the town.

Check prints. No, not the western, cow girl type. I am talking dark reds, deep blue’s, black and grey. Check shirts, and skirts and dresses are key items. Pair your check shirt with a pleather skirt and cute ankle boots.

Oversized knitwear. Another must have item for your winter closet. Depending on the length it can also be warn as a dress with leggings or opaque tights. Wear it with cute pumps for casual day-wear or with your favorite heeled boots for a more formal evening look.  Tip: don’t wear your oversized knitwear with a pair of baggy jeans, you don’t want to look like saggy Suzy now do you?

Denim. Our faithful friend denim. Probably the most timeless piece of clothing any woman owns. Denim is sporting a new look this winter teamed up with pleather and knitwear. One of my personal favorite items is the denim jacket with pleather sleeves.

Military. If you are thinking the pair of camo pants you have stashed at the back of your cupboard is finally making a comeback….don’t get too excited.  More like military inspired jackets, accessories and shoes. My favorites include the utility jacket, which I will wear with a pair of black skinnies and a pair of black heels. Also think snood’s, scarf’s and military inspired boots-think buckles!

So that is it.  My take on winter 2014.  Snuggle up, it’s gonna be a cold one.
