The Fashion Show 2014 is the biggest night of fashion for the ISU community. From wedding dresses to swimsuits, the show had a wide range of garments to display.

But how can you take inspiration from these amazing outfits and incorporate it into your own style?

There are a few stand out trends that graced the runway of which you should take note. A lot of the designers showed either rompers or jumpsuits. This is an easy trend to recreate. Most stores are now carrying this big trend for spring. Whether it is a solid color or printed, rompers are in trend this season.

Large floral prints were also a common trend on the runway. Whether they were on a skirt, dress or crop top, they make a big statement. This is also a simple trend to recreate. Florals are a staple for spring, so find any clothing item — whether it is in your closet or at the mall — with a bold floral print.

C Wonder, the guest designer, showed a very nautical-inspired collection. It was full of stripes, lace, white, and — of course — anchors. You can recreate this huge trend by finding nautical inspired pieces in your closet.

The designer had combinations of white on white, jeans and striped tops, and peplum accents. Any of these trends are easy to wear and to recreate.

The last trend I noticed throughout the show was patterned pants. A look with bold black and white pants really stuck out to me. To recreate this trend you can simply find any pair of patterned pants, whether they are jeans or harem style pants.
