Here at The Gloss, we tend to shy away from the too-common bullying language of many fashion publications–5 Designer Items You Need Right Now! 5 Bags Everyone Will Have!, etc–because it’s unrealistic and obnoxious (no one needs a designer anything, for one).
However, for those of you who like following fashion but feel no obligation to spend a month’s rent on a damn handbag, one very easy way to translate the runway to your regular old wardrobe is with color. By incorporating the season’s biggest shades–whether through recycling stuff you already have or buying something new–you’ll achieve roughly the same effect as wearing trendy, eye-catching (and super expensive) runway pieces. Next Spring, these are the colors you’ll be seeing.
…Then again, you could also not give a shit and wear whatever you want. We’re just giving you the option.
Pantone actually called this one–Dazzling Blue is the color of Spring 14–and it sure showed on the runways.
On the upside, the color looks spectacular on all skintones.
