3 trends that will stick around in 2014 (and on)

Trends by definition come and go, but then there are trends that just make sense and stick around for awhile. These are my personal favorites from 2013 and ones that will definitely be around in 2014 and beyond. trends that are here to stay - plum lipstickWith radiant orchid being the 2014 color of the year, the plum lipstick that you saw at shows like Derek Lam (above image via Into the Gloss) will still be popular in 2014. There will be much brighter shades, or you can stick with the deeper colors that we saw this fall. Plum is flattering on everyone – it’s all about finding the shade that is right for your skin tone and comfort level. If you’re hesitant to wear a lot of color, try out a sheer lipstick (like the Clinique chubby stick above).

trends that are here to stay - athletic sneakersFashionistas are always trying to sneak comfort into their personal style. Uggs, TOMs, Birkenstocks, and now athletic sneakers. I know that many of you may be trying to get your minds wrapped around wearing your Nike running shoes as part of your street style, in particularly with a skirt or dress. The best way to wear athletic sneakers fashionably is to simply wear them with your skinny jeans, coated denim, or leather leggings and add a feminine top and some accessories and you’re set. This is a trend that your legs and feet will appreciate, and if it doesn’t work out, well you can just retire the shoes for gym wear.

trends that are here to stay - leopard accentsNow that Jenna Lyons has estalished leopard as a neutral, it’s here to stay. BUT, only as an accent. Excessive leopard and animal print will be reserved for cougar wear, but mixing a few accessories together adds a fun twist on what otherwise would be a simple or plain look.

    Ha! You can’t pry the leopard from my arthritic cougar grip!
    I remember plum lips from eras past, so I’ll let the “youngsters” do that one. I’m still working red lips, another blast from the past.
    The sneakers-as-fashion make me think of Susie Bubble. She pulls off the look with elan.

    Ahh the leopard print! Can never get enough.
    Hope it NEVER goes out of style! *fingers crossed*

  3. I’m all for the plum lipstick! Leopard on the other hand…I never know how to make it look sophisticated.
