We take a look at the hottest new trends of 2014 to watch out for.

Big pants
Another year, another raft of articles proclaiming the death of the skinny jean. Don't believe them: tight pants are here to stay, but 2014 will see plenty more wide leg trousers hitting the stores and the streets. Look to brands like Chloé and BCBG Max Azria for luxe eveningwear options. Additional tuxedo stripes down the side add a flash of detail and help break up the big shapes.

Big skirts
Sitting somewhere between maxi and midi skirts, big skirts can be worn with arm-baring tops for a slightly retro '50s look, or appear with pleats as seen in Proenza Schouler's stunning and very modern metallic skirts. Tea length dresses also play around with this proportion. 

Mesh and lace
Appearing everywhere as usual over the past few seasons, lace has been given a new more modern twist for 2014 with colored mesh inserts and architectural overlays. Raf Simons at Christian Dior and Christopher Kane both sent out good examples of how to freshen up the look.

Pastels
At Burberry, Christopher Bailey made pastels the core of his collection. Soft, never sickly sweet, baby blues and pale pinks and violets work well in ultramodern fabric looks like neoprene as well as more traditional wools and laces. Prabal Gurung and Jason Wu also nailed the all-over pastel look in tailoring and dresses.
