Leather and shimmer are the latest trends as we close off 2013 and head into 2014, according to some retailers in downtown Port of Spain recently.
“Last year there was a lot of colour and colour blocking and while still popular, people also need to look out for leather and animal print,” said Jennifer Parks, owner of In Excess in Port of Spain.
“You would see more black, gold and flesh tones for this season,” she added.
“Clothing in various lengths, particularly dresses gives a more semi-formal look which usually sets the tone for most Old Year’s Night parties,” Parks said.
“Keep in mind your accessories are just as important as your outfit. Chunky jewelry is so “in” right now and recently we got the Rihanna pearls that can take any simple black dress and make it red-carpet ready,” she said.
