Strange Spring 2014 Trends Coming Your Way

Even though winter's icy fingers are still clamped on our shoulders, many in the fashion world have turned their eyes to what we all will be wearing in the coming Spring.

After countless hours forecasting and trend reporting, stores are beginning to stock their shelves with spring collections shown last September at New York Fashion Week. Buyers have settled in on the looks of Spring 2014 and it isn't half bad. Cropped jackets, athletic striped dress pants, pop art prints, pastels (for spring...groundbreaking.) and white blouses (if you can call that a trend) are a few of the trends you can expect to see in March.

But every season, not-so-wearable, or just plain ugly, items make their way onto the catwalk and into your favorite stores. Designers are supposed to push the envelope of fashion, but sometimes they take it to level the average person can't follow. I'm not saying that somewhere out there beneath the pale moonlight there isn't a woman to rock a rhinestone encrusted Dior halter crop top. But for the masses, many trendy items do not fit into our daily lifestyle.

Here are six trendy items not even the great Kate Moss need have in her closet -- but she will because she is Kate Moss.

Iridescent Scuba Dress Apparently, looking like a character from Star Trek is in.

Leather T-Shirt Can it be called a t-shirt if it is leather? Not in Houston! If you are daring enough to try this, maybe you can pair with a vinyl pencil skirt.

Floral Suit I'm all for a suit in anything but black or gray, but a head to toe floral is where I draw the line. Kim Kardashian taught us that lesson.

Embellished Sport Sandal a.k.a. Chic-O-Pedics A distant relative of the Croc and, as such, should not be worn out for dinner.

Lace Veil Headband Other than a bunny funeral or receiving a Grammy for best new artist, I'm not sure when anyone would wear this.

Flower Diagram Sweatshirt Yes, that is the same flower diagram you filled in during that elementary biology test. It's like a walk down memory lane on your chest.
