From Slip dresses and cowboy boots to glam cardigans, 2016 is set to be an exciting year for fashion. While the catwalks definitely revealed some rather unexpected returns (is anyone excited for the return of the anklet?) there is still a lot to look forward to in the stores this year. Credit cards ready – here are our top 5 picks for fashion trends in 2016!
The Slip dress
One of the biggest trends for 2016 is the simple slip dress. 90s fashion is going to be huge in 2016 and it doesn’t get more quintessentially 90s than the slip dress. Wear it over a T-shirt for a casual daytime look or with strappy sandals and a cardigan for a night out.
It’s time to embrace your inner cowboy because cowboy boots are back in 2016! Wear yours with wide-leg trousers, a pair of black skinny jeans, or a prairie girl-style floaty dress.
That’s right, check is back! Expect to see checks in all sizes hitting the stores in summer 2016. Thick, thin, big, small – there’s a checked look for everyone. Embrace this trend with a check jacket, skirt or trousers – but just remember to keep it subtle, very few people can pull off head-to-toe check.
We all knew the 90s were coming back but we never thought we’d see the return of the tracksuit! This time around we’re taking a more modern stance on the trend by wearing tracksuit bottoms paired with vests. And, while you’re at it, you might as well be a little more daring and don the full tracksuit – go for a style in satin or silk and pair it with heels and your best bag to elevate the look.
In 2016 cardigans aren’t just for librarians – they’re all glamed up and ready to hit the town. In 2016 cardis will be given the razzle dazzle treatment with plenty of sparkles and other details. The key is to keep them oversized and not too fitted – think big and comfy. Wear yours with a pretty slip dress and high heels or sneakers.
