Mixing laid-back pieces with much (much) dressier garments is a trend designers have taken to the next level this season —to be more presice, the catwalk. Off the runway (clearly even on it!), traditional gowns can often feel old-fashioned or stuffy, if done incorrectly. For Pre-Fall, Jason Wu to Ralph Lauren shook up the eveningwear equation by pairing soft, chunky, and oversized sweaters with long dressy skirts. The result? Casual with a modern twist. What do you say, will you try this pre-determined trend for 2014? You choose.
