What's Hot in the World of Fashion this WinterWinter fashion is always an exciting prospect. We get to be stylish and cozy at the same time. Fashion trends for winter 2014, of course, are focused on this snug/stylish combination in line with colder weather and different fashion needs. There are a multitude of fantastic trends for this season that are really unlike previous years. Many of these trends are extremely easy to work into an already established winter wardrobe, while other trends are truly statement sin and of themselves. But whatever takes your liking, you will find a way to adopt a winter fashion trend this season that tickles your fancy.

Cozy Knits and Coats

Every winter we need some key cozy knits and this season has some amazing prints and patterns in jumpers on offer. Geometric patterns, both in monotone and brighter colors are a huge hit for this winter season. Think graphic lines and crisscrossed borders for maximum impact. Another must have essential is the oversized overcoat. This has been seen on runways across the globe for the upcoming season. Opt for big and even boxy styles that have structured shoulders for ultimate trend appeal. Long, loose lines are key here, while simple colors and reserved textures will make the look even more modern.

Statement Pieces

There are several more dramatic trends which have taken off for the winter season, and showcasing curves is one of them. A welcome addition to the trend list, it is not about disguising curves this season, but enhancing them. Think peplum waistlines, pencil skirts and tulip dresses for accentuating natural form. Using a belt is a trend that is less expensive and more versatile that will really make a difference to an outfit. This season is all about the over-belt, even putting the belt over the coat. Contrasting styles work most effectively, and belts should always be placed at the narrowest part of the waist for the most flattering look.
