Like most fashion-crazed bloggers, I have been impatiently waiting for spring to come so that I can dig out those light and colorful spring/summer clothes. The major fashion trends for SS14 spring/summer are a little outrageous- in a good way. But how in the world can anyone incorporate these crazy trends into your everyday wardrobe? Here are ways to take the high fashion right off the catwalk and into your wardrobe.

Trend #1- The Midi Skirt

Both designers Roksanda Ilincic and Sonia Rykiel used the midi skirt in their collections. This is a relatively new and dangerous trend- you don’t want your legs looking to short! For an off-the-catwalk look, you could try the midi skirts from ASOS and Forever 21, they both have good prices.

Trend #2- All White

The all-white trend is back this year full-force. This comes as no surprise because all-white outfits have always been super stylish and expensive- looking. While the outfits from the catwalks are a little “out there”, they have inspired some major street style.

Trend #3- Mixed Patterns

To be completely honest, this trend confuses me just a little. Although these high-fashion outfits probably took a considerable amount of time to pick, to me it looks like they just threw on the first things they saw. I sort of like it though, it gives the I’m-Not-Trying-To-Hard sort of vibes. This trend is a little harder to transition into street style, yet looks amazing when done correctly.

Trend #4- Fashion is Art.. Literally

I couldn't help but include this last “trend” by Miuccia Prada. The models came out dressed in pieces with… faces on them? It’s crazy and I love it. Also, Phoebe Philo (Celine) stayed true to the “art school” trend with pieces that looked like they have actually been painted on.
