Fashion Month ended last week, and we took our usual step back to peruse every show from the Spring 2014 offerings to see which trends synthesized across all four cities. Of course, just because something walks on a runway doesn't mean it will influence anybody's wardrobe, but when you see certain styling moves or details repeating in all four fashion capitals, it's a safe bet that you'll feel their impact. We sifted through show after show to come up with some trends that might have the significance, novelty, and staying power to find their way into our wardrobe next spring: the flying fringe at Altuzarra, Miu Miu, and Dior; the powdery lilac at Prabal Gurung, Wes Gordon, and Burberry, and then again at Christopher Kane; the return of classic knife pleats at Prada, Rochas, and Givenchy; the play of written words embroidered or printed across ready-to-wear at Alexander Wang, Erdem, and then, finally, at Dior. Not all the trends made the cut, like the swingy midi skirts that we saw everywhere, or fur coats that didn't seem appropriate for spring, or ostrich feathers, which are lovely but better in theory than in practice. Click on to see the thrilling details that we can all look forward to wearing for Spring 2014.BEGIN SLIDESHOW
