Hottest Spring 2014 Fashion Trends

With spring just around the corner, I've been majorly crushing on a couple of trends and have been seeing them everywhere! I am excited for the warm weather and absolutely cannot wait to rock these trends! Here are My Golden Beauty's Hottest Fashion Trends of Spring 2014.


White, pink, blue, mint, violet, coral - These are the hottest pastel colors out there. Don't worry, you won't feel like the Easter Bunny.   Designers have gotten pastels right and have done these colors so gracefully. Pastels are definitely one of the hottest trends right now for spring.  Pair with jeans, skirt, white or black pants and these classics are updated and ready to wear for 2014.

Crops tops are EVERYWHERE and are extremely popular for spring and celebrities everywhere have been sporting crop tops everywhere, especially Kim Kardashian.  Crop tops are best paired with a midi skirt.  Midi Skirts are youthful and when done right, look very modern.  I would recommend pairing a midi skirt with a crop top or a tucked in top so that it accentuates your waist and offsets the length.

Alright ladies, pleats are making a HUGE comeback. Of course pleats have been around for quite a while but it's good to know how to update this old trend.  Make sure pleats aren't too "puffy" and also either wear with a tucked in shirt or a crop top to accentuate your waist! 

I LOVE collarless jackets.  Collarless jackets are timeless and for the springtime they are perfect for those chilly spring nights.  This trend will be staying around for a while.  It's best to stay safe with a neutral or solid color, but it's always fun to take a risk with bright colors and prints.

Review of Steve Madden Flat Cuff Thong Sandal

Recently I've been obsessing over these super cute Steve Madden Flat Cuff Thong Sandals which retail for $59.95.  I have been rocking these sandals a lot lately as they instantly spice up any outfit.  These sandals are also very comfortable which is another big plus and I absolutely love the gold cuff detail.

Steve Madden makes these sandals in three different colors: Black, White, and Cognac.  I went with the Cognac because I felt like I would get more use out of them versus the Black or White.  Also, the sandals run true to size - Below is the size 9.


Here is an up close look at the cuff detail...


I did find an alternative more affordable version from Charlotte Russe.  They are called the Metallic Band Flat Sandal which retails for only $22.50!  The sandals come in either Coral or Gold. 
What do you guys think of the cuff details on the sandals?
