4 Trends to Try in 2016

4 Trends to Try in 2016

With 2016 officially underway, it’s time to leave last year in the past and embrace everything new—and that includes fashion trends. Though chilly temps might still be the norm in most parts of the country, spring styles are already front and center in the fashion world. And as much as I love my sweaters and boots, the latest designs for the spring season make me glad to live in a place where I don’t have to wait until May to wear them! Keep an eye out for these must-try trends to add to your wardrobe in 2016.

  1. Half-Moon Bag

As soon as Victoria Beckham’s half-moon handbag design walked (or rather, was carried) down the runway at her Spring 2016 show during New York Fashion Week, fashion-followers everywhere starting lusting after the new “it” purse. As Glamour writes, the crescent-shaped style has all the key components of a bag of the season: it’s highly Instagrammable, has a distinguishable shape, and, perhaps most importantly, it’s roomy enough to hold all of your must-have items. Check, check, and check!

2. Shimmer and Shine

The holidays may be over, but don’t put away the sparkly pieces that you rocked during the annual party circuit just yet. High-shine details and metallic shimmer are in for spring, making every day feel a little more festive than usual. PopSugar’s coverage of this trend can be helpful, as it covers everything from shorts to cocktail dresses, giving you a way to wear a NYE-worthy outfit year-round.

3. Surprising Sneakers

If one thing is for certain, it’s that this particular trend of 2016 is not made for the gym, tennis courts, or any other type of sweat-inducing activity. Spring’s sneakers put a spin on the classic shape, elevating the once-simple shoe to a more interesting level. While some designers opted for a pointed toe or luxe fabrics, others showcased colorful stitching and metallic finishes. To find your new favorite pair of kicks, Lyst’s shoe collection is a good place to start. The sampling of different designers from across the industry ensures you’ll find just the right surprising sneakers for you.

4. The Slip Dress

A staple of ’90s fashion, the slip dress is trending once again for the new year, and it’s sexier than ever. The subtle, strappy slip of decades past has gotten a makeover, with feminine lace, ruching, and hints of graphic color. Still, if wearing the lingerie-inspired piece outside of your bedroom seems too risqué, top your slip dress with a light oversized sweater or layer a simple tee underneath.

I can not believe it is almost 2015! From the end of November tiil the start of the new year is when everyone is rocking the sequins. It is the time of year when you can go all out, and why not start the new year with a bang!

One can never go wrong with an all black dress on New Years, the sequins are festive and the low neck line adds a lot of glam to the outfit. This would be a great outfit if you are going to a nice dinner with your significant other or maybe even a nice office party. Paired with some high black heels and the gold Rolex watch would finish off the look. (Shop here)

Yes everyone knows that black and gold are the go to colors for this time of year. But adding a pop of color is fun and will stand out against everyone else at the party! A great look for a night with friends or family. This would also look great with a big gold watch and some high gold heels.

If you are not into the super sparkley holiday outfits than this might be the one for you. You do not have to be sparkling to get all the attention in the room. This all white outfit is sure to be an eye catcher against all the black dresses this year, and this look can be used for any plans you have that night. Gold accessories are a must for this! (Shop here)

This is probably my favorite outfit of the bunch! The sheer black top adds a bit of sexiness to the outfit, but the long sleeves and pockets tone it down just the right amount. Pair this with the gold watch and some heels and you are ready for the night.
