The Donna Karan resort 2014 collection brought a dose of seriously elegant and modern ensembles into the spotlight. The latest creations aren't defined by a particular theme but instead by a set of defining concepts such as lean, lightweight, long and linear. The clear focus on these particular ideas made the looks seem streamlined and incredibly alluring. Unlike previous lines which focused on creating striking proportions for edgy futuristic allure, the new line is much more focused on wearable alternatives with a feminine flair.

Structured pieces such as leather jackets or fab blazers get combined with modern flowy pieces with a romantic flair. The Donna Karan resort 2014 line abounds in flirty dresses in various lightweight fabrics with plenty of asymmetric details for a modern touch that instantly attracts attention. Monochrome pieces are preferred due to their unmistakable elegant allure, yet print lovers will still find several interesting choices worth indulging in. Once again, the preference for moderation is clearly expressed. The patterns are used as accents for the most part, being clearly defined in most of the looks.

Donna Karan's cruise 2014 collection revolves mostly around black, white and other neutral tones yet accent tones like vibrant red or fab blue shades bring a fab contrast to the looks. The black/gold combo continues to be a great choice for the new season. Minimalistic pieces thus become a great source of inspiration for the new season. In terms of trends, it becomes fairly obvious that the line's abstract elements will continue to dominate.

In terms of feminine accents, it seems that peplums are still being a strong choice among those who are looking for a sophisticated flair. Since the new Donna Karan pre-spring 2014 line is focused with an elegant, minimalistic approach in mind, the new line keeps accessories at a minimum. For a luxurious vibe, the label chooses to complete the looks with simple golden sandals or fab long earring. Yes, a single long earring as powerful distinctive vibe!
