'Casual' to 'Spacey': Insiders Describe 2014 Fashion in a Word

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Just like last year and the year before that, we've tapped a handful of influential Angelenos to weigh in on 2014's greatest hits and misses. We've already highlighted LA's best stores, coolest brands, and most-wanted shops, top 'hoods, best buys, and regrettable purchases. Now, tastemakers are summing up 2014 fashion in one word.
