The 5 Biggest Fashion Trends to Try in 2014

4. Pastels

The spring 2014 runway collections of Jason Wu, Prabal Gurung and Rebecca Taylor all emphasized the importance of pastels this year. Of the plethora of these pretty colors dominating the runways, Del Russo recommends two in particular: "Lilac and minty green are delightful colors … for spring," she says.

A unique way to add edge to this demure color palette is to search for spring leathers in these tones. Del Russo says a great way to tie this look together is "pairing minty-green leather pants with a basic white tee."
