Most Wearable Spring 2014 Trends

Here are 10 most wearable spring 2014 fashion trends, straight off the runway:

1. Pastels are IN again. From a minty-green board-shorts suit to a sexy-CEO lilac dress to sporty baby blue bombers... The sky is the limit on how pastell-happy you want to get.

2. Boxy, cropped jackets. The boxy, cropped silhouette can come in a plethora of prints and textures to pair easily with a fit-and-flare or body-con dress, tailored trousers, office-ready skirts, and your go-to jeans.

5. Cool Bomber Jackets. This sporty layering piece got edgier with colorful prints, luxe textures and fabrics, and sporty-cool detailing.

6. Tea-Length Skirts. The tea-length is between midi and maxi, and it's perfect for spring. It can be modern as mini when you pair it with a cropped top to offset the length. You can also get a look with tea-length dress.

7. Sweater Dressing. This is an easy-chic piece to pair with tailored pants, flirty skirts, and blousy shorts.

8. Tuxedo-Meets-Athletic-Striped Trousers. The athletic stripe smartens up with tuxedo detailing on these sporty-meets-sophisticated tailored trousers.

9. The Shift Blouse. The shift blouse is easy, but so much more sophisticated. Have some fun with extra details, like exciting prints, luxurious textures, and varying necklines.

10. Collarless Coats. When it comes to collarless coats, you could always go safe with a neutral or solid color, but you can always take a risk with fun prints or embellished denim.

International Women's Day with Lancôme

On 8 March, International Women’s Day, Lancôme distributed silk roses to female passengers in 69 travel retail doors worldwide. A message was attached to each rose, which read (in various languages): '8th March 2013', 'Lancôme celebrates Women’s Day', 'Lancôme loves women', 'La vie est belle', 'Life is beautiful.' 

The message references Lancôme’s latest women’s fragrance, 'La Vie Est Belle', and invited travellers to discover – or rediscover – the product. 21,000 roses were distributed in one day. Lancôme described the event as 'joyful' and 'a huge success'.

DIY: Statement Necklace for Spring

Will you be wearing statement necklaces this spring ? Though some of the previous Hollywood shows saw minimal sparkle, the Oscars red carpet saw few beautiful ladies wearing shiny and stunning statements necklaces. So, I guess they are still IN. 

I love jewelry DIY's, and here is one quite simple and easy. Make your own statement necklace for spring. 

Materials Needed:
- rope
- superglue
- a piece of felt
- rhinestones
- scissors
- jewelry plyers
- needle and thread
- 2 end caps
- a lobster clasp and jump rings

1. Cut out your felt into squares and then plan your design. You may want to draw it or copy the one we have created. Using a toothpick or skewer, put some glue onto the back of the rhinestones.

2. Begin applying the crystals to the felt.

3. Continue creating your pattern.

4. Once you have made your pattern, let it dry overnight.

5. Cut out the pattern, making sure to cut as close to the crystals as possible so that the felt can't be seen.

6. Add glue to the end caps and press them onto the ends of the rope.

7. Add a jump ring to one end cap and a jump ring and lobster clasp to the other end.

8. Sew or glue your jewel clusters to the necklace, making sure they are centered.

9. And here it is, you have your perfect statement necklace for spring! :)
