Plus-Size Fall 2014 Fashion Trends
August 28, 2014

The black and white trend that has been extremely popular this summer is getting darker and edgier with shifts to all black as fall approaches.  Faux and genuine leather are exceptionally important this year both as contrast and monochromatic textural trims, and as individual items of clothing such as jackets, skirts, dresses, and skirts.  Charcoal grey adds to the smoky palette with shots of blood red and orchid purple adding depth.  Teal green and vibrant blue are being used unexpectedly or a subtle color layers.

Similar color combinations are appearing in the BoHo style sphere also transitioning out of summer.  Pieces are softer with more flowing lines, but the same colors are mixed together in folkloric embroidery designs and pattern mix pieces.  Mexican aesthetic traditions are still in play with distinctive floral patterns used in prints and surface design.   BoHo looks will also sometimes use the blue and white vase and china floral patterns which are showing up on everything from dresses to shoes, and are incorporated into a number of different style aesthetics from trendy to even modern classic and contemporary looks.

Patterns, and plaid in particular, are extending from last year appearing in everything from casual shirts to leggings and dresses.  Mixed with leather this can go a little tough and rebellious.  It can also be cozy and familiar, dressed down "normcore" paired with a favorite pair of deconstructed, patched, or boyfriend jeans.  Slim leggings, and an oversized plaid shirt, with over-the-knee boots or lace-up combat boots is dressed down chic this fall.  Career women may mix menswear plaids into their suiting looks, often layered with softer more feminine details.

Sporty, active wear looks are particularly popular this fall with younger women still in school and those with more casual lifestyles.  No longer relegated to the gym, soft knit jogging pants have become style statements that can be worn with cropped tees and sneakers for running around during daily life, or switched up layered under a leather jacket and heels for date night.  No longer simply black and functional, they can come in sporty color block styles and increasingly patterns as part of the pattern mixing trend which is still playing out.

One of the biggest style stories emerging that will affect trends moving forward is the swing from ultra skinny pant silhouettes to wider leg looks.  Many are still holding on to the slim legged looks, but more and more palazzo pants and straight leg styles are trending in.  As people learn to work with proportions and mixes with more fitted and structured tops, expect to see more of these looks moving forward.

Jersey jumpsuits are are also extremely important this fall, with classic black available from almost every fashion forward designer and retailer.  Versatile and easy to dress up or down, a few have extra detailing that take them more explicitly into the realm of evening and party wear. More adventurous patterned versions are also appearing.  Although slim leg styles are available, wider legged silhouettes are dominating.
