There’s always a lot to absorb from the runways of New York Fashion week and the spring/summer 2014 collections were no different. If you’re in need of some help on steering your summer fashions we have trimmed down the fat and picked the very best bits that need to be making their way to a wardrobe near you.
It’s all about the face
Spring/summer is the perfect time to change up your look. Do away with the same old makeup routine and introduce something new for a fresher faced you. This year a lot of focus was put on the use of dark crimson lipstick, expressing a rather 18th century French feel of the days of Marie Antoinette. For a modern contribution add flourish to the corners of your eyes with dramatic eye flicks while keeping the rest of the eyelid simple.
Don’t shy away from floral patterns
Once upon a time the use of floral fabric was seen as somewhat old fashioned. Those days are well and truly over. If you want to look chic and on-trend in 2014 you need to acquire a love for everything that is floral and busy on the eye.
Women can introduce the use of floral patterns by wearing the full skirt. Full skirts really are a must have for the season. It’s a great statement piece that looks great on most body shapes. The reintroduction of the full skirt is also great news for the women out there who aren’t keen on flashing a lot of skin. The full skirt stops between the knee and the ankle, so there’s no need to worry about waxing your thighs this summer if you don’t want to! Expect to see a lot of full skirts, often using tulle underneath to ensure the skirt is able to retain its fuller shape.
Men are also being encouraged to go for something flowery in their fashion choices in 2014. If you love to be in with the in-crowd choose floral as prints for your T-shirts, shorts and even in your suits. Visit http://www.thackerays.co.uk for the latest men’s and women’s fashion.

Nothing wrong with khaki
If you really cannot bring yourself to buy anything with flowers on it, there is another choice. The utilitarian look of Khaki is a big winner for the season. Khaki full skirts are proving to be big hits and they are easy to work into any wardrobe.
The other option for men and women is to avoid the patterns but to embrace colour. Don’t be afraid to buy anything that is bright, choose oranges, reds, and blues, anything that takes your eye and will make you stand out and be counted in a crowd. You’ll be seeing lot of colourful suits, with double breasted jackets this year along with bright T-shirts, skirts and simple faded denim jeans.
