From Catwalk to High Street: Trends for 2016

1

Frills

Alexander McQueen

Frills were everywhere in the collections for Summer 2016. Frills add interest to summer dresses, and are perfect for making casual outfits look feminine.

Shoulder baring

Proenza Schouler

This year is all about showing off your shoulders – perfect if you don’t like showing too much skin. Keep the rest of the outfit simple, and team with heels so your legs look as long as your arms.

Colour

Berluti

If you fancy brightening up your wardrobe, now is the time to do it. Ladies, clash two bright colours if you feel confident, or look out for bold stripes and patterns. All shades of green are on trend for menswear – go brighter if you want to make a statement.

Wide-leg trousers

Oliver Spencer

Skinnies have finally been pushed aside to make way for the wide-leg. Men should look out for wider trousers, and roll up the bottoms for a more casual look. For women, boyfriend jeans are still going strong this year.

Backpacks

Burberry backpack

Backpacks are appearing for 2016 in all shapes and sizes. Buying a backpack in a neutral colour means it will go with pretty much any outfit. Chic and practical.

Higher Necklines

Valentino

An unusual neckline can make a plain outfit look way more interesting. The hatchling neckline is something new for women – just a tad shorter than the average turtleneck. Turtlenecks look great on men if you add a layer on top.
