As celebs continue to be gifted designer pieces that are fresh from the runway, we’ll continue to look to them for insight into next season’s fashion trends.
We may barely be into winter, but spring fashion trends are already showing up on the red carpet. So what are the latest fashion trends to come?
Taking in recent red carpet looks from actresses Rooney Mara, Naomie Harris, and Zoe Saldana, it’s safe to assume double layer skirts are fashion’s next ‘it’ trend.
Girl with the Dragon Tattoo star Rooney Mara walked the red carpet of The 8th Rome Film Festival premiere of her new film Her, wearing a double layer creation courtesy of Balenciaga.
Rooney’s Spring 2014 frock features a sheer overlay that gives the otherwise mini length dress a more conservative calf length hemline.
It’s a best of both worlds kind of deal, allowing Rooney to wear the shorter, bolder skirt lengths typical of the spring and summer seasons without losing the comfort and ease of a longer dress.
Actress Naomie Harris is one of those stars who tends to fly under the fashion radar, but is actually deserving of closer style watch.
As she’s made the promotional rounds in support of her latest movie Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom, Naomie has rocked several fashion forward looks that proves she’s one to watch.
She had a standout style moment at the film’s AFI FEST 2013 premiere, rocking a double layer look from the Oscar de la Renta Spring 2014 collection.
Naomie paired her mesh overlay dress with turquoise chandelier earrings (similar here, and here) and matching turquoise heeled sandals (similar here, and here).
Along with the classic silhouette of the flounce hem overlay, the turquoise accents provide a timeless contrast to the contemporary design of the dress.
Of course resident celebrity fashionista Zoe Saldana would be at the forefront of an emerging style trend. The Star Trek actress (or her stylist) has an impeccable talent for creating red carpet looks that are always ahead of the fashion curve.
Things were no different at the Seventh Annual Hamilton Behind the Camera Awards, where Zoe continued her trendsetting ways wearing a double layer dress from the Monique Lhuillier Spring 2014 ready-to-wear collection.
With temperatures only just beginning to reach lower numbers, thinking ahead to spring fashion trends probably isn’t on anyone’s immediate style radar.
But this is one look that easily transitions into fall. Try pairing a double layer skirt with a chunky knit sweater and heeled boots for a cold weather ready look.
