Fashion Week Spring 2014: Runway Trends III

Our feet are shot and the novelty of celebrity spotting and free cocktails is wearing off but that doesn't mean our fetish for fashion has fleeted. Today, we continue to call out the biggest trends of the season the moment they emerge.

Floral Prints:
May flowers are one of the most anticipated events of the Spring season and designers are embarrassing that love of nature. Grunge (for some odd reason) continues to inspire designers this season and Calla Haynes says her floral prints were inspired by 90s surf culture. Spanish design house, Delpozo combined both floral and plaid from pre-Clueless days, which resulted in an aesthetic much more posh than grunge. At Oscar de la Renta you could practically smell the spring bloom.

The Mullet Silhouette:
Get ready to 'Party in the front, business in the back' your wardrobe. The ape drape is destined dominating fashion this season. While a few fashion critics believe the mullet silhouette is 'Achy-breaky-bad-mistakey' -- we just can't get enough and neither will you. Check out Oscar's version of the Mississippi Mudslide in a dazzling green croc embossed finish. Lisa Perry deviated from her usual a-line look a mullet gown in tennis white. ICB opted for a more casual but ultra chic hi-lo dress in black and white.

Bright Lips:
Throw away your barely there gloss and neutral lip stains because your lips are about to get a jolt of color. Dennis Basso colored puckers a bright red, as did, Suno. Badgley Mischka opted for a bright coral and Thom Browne went with a ghoulish bright lip.
