Florals, patterns and geometric print were all the rage at J.Crew's SS14 catwalk this year at NYFW. The always stylish brand was heavily influenced by the more vibrant and statement pieces, teamed with light and basic partners for a wow factor.
Textures were mixed up widely: Shirts and jackets for a double denim look were teamed with floral skirts, and visa versa with the pattern used on a blouse and paired with high waisted shorts. Cargo pants were shown with what appeared to be splats of paint but teamed with a feisty clutch and sandal heels made it work. Perfect for SS14, the textures varied but still appear light and easy to wear for both day and night as bringing a pop of colour into Spring/Summer14 seems the most efficient way to describe the collection.
Silhouettes remained structured and fitted, leaving a slightly masculine touch on the initial shape of the clothing, but with the visual styles and patterns, the pieces remain feminine with a power feel.
As well as showcasing some brilliant clothing, J.Crew completed each outfit with the most equally vibrant shoes. Pointed toes seemed to be the foundation of all the shoes, but then completely taken in individual directions with peep toe, varied straps, colours and patterns. The heels were matched to certain items including the floral pieces and some simple block colour trousers, skirts and tops.
