Springs Must Have Trends Awed by Monica - BellaNaija - May 2014001Hey Spring lovers! *sob, sob* It’s the final edition of the Spring Must-Haves for 2014 by Monica Awe-Etuk of Awed by Monica.

We have of admit it has been a roller coaster of fashion tips, tricks and spotting this year’s Spring 2014 trends to watch and own.

For the first edition we took a coloruful look at Spring’s must-have 2014 Colour Trends {Click here if you missed it}; then we looked at the all-the-way stylish Midi Skirt {Click here if you missed it}. After those posts, we explored the ever-playful and pretty world of Florals that make Spring so worth it {Click here if you missed it} and last week we looked down at our Pointy-toed Stiletto pumps {Click here if you missed it}.

So what are we checking out today? The hot White Trend. Enjoy!

Fifth Edition: The White Factor
The fifth and final trend in our Spring 2014 Trends to Rock series is The White Factor. Gone are the days of not being able to wear white after Labor Day or all white being saved for your wedding day. Whether in select pieces for a special occasion or wearing white from head to toe, it is chic and here for the Spring party.

I love white, and the way it pops against my skin just makes it absolutely chic and one of my favourite trends. In the image above, I decided to make my white interpretation as chic as possible with a white bag, dress black & white detail sunglasses and shoes.

Looks Dominated by White
Ashley from the style blog The Daileigh does a great job of putting together this sexy white look. Hers features the midi trend and  a cropped top.

Black isn’t the only colour you can pair white with. It goes great with pink too! So I added hints of pink and black to my all white mix.

    Can someone please advise me what the spring trend or for that matter, the rest of the oyibo seasons has to do with Naija? Are we now inventing seaons for ourselves? Clothes are worn according to seasons in those countries with those seasons. So how does this concern us? Can we be more original? Or are our designers designing seasonal clothing for oyibo now?

      Sorry to ask, but how wet are you that you do not realise/cannot appreciate that BN is an international media platform targeted at Nigerians wherever they may be. I live in London and certainly cannot rock any of these outfits without a jacket and a scarf for extra insurance. At any rate, the article is about the current colour trend and the showcased style is appropriate for naija weather. The fashion industry – globally – creates new trends driven by calendar seasons. Never heard of any designer (Africans included) releasing collections based on tropical (wet/dry) seasons..

      You sound rather uneducated. Unexposed. In naija slang terms – ‘LOCAL’! Parochial in your thinking, floating in your miniscule bubble, unabashedly and blissfully ignorant.

    I’m very curious to know what these fashion bloggers to for a living. I’m just thinking aloud as per how they can afford all these luxury items and then spend so much time dressing up, taking photos and posting them online…
