Womens winter trends for 2016

Winter 2016’s hot looks can be summed up in five essentials:

  1. Skinny jean/leather pants/chinos
  2. Woollen or cashmere jumper/blanket wrap scarf
  3. Statement coat
  4. Ankle boots
  5. Scarfs and hats.

Burnt orange, claret, raisin, mustard, black and white, turquoise, caramel, grey and pastels.

Your coat should be a statement piece. Look at the style, colour and the texture in order for you to make it your trend.

The huge influences this winter incorporate hats, scarfs, large rimmed sunglasses, large necklaces and the statement bag.

Woollen jumpers
Pick one that works for you! Cable knits are great if you feel the cold, or cashmere if you are looking for something lighter. Waterfall cardigans are the winter rage, If this is not the look for you try a blanket wrap scarf.

The knitted dress is the talk of the town this winter; it has little shape and sits above the knee.

This winter anything goes, from a full skirt to a pencil skirt, and for those of you who like something a little shorter, the mini. A reminder — remember your opaque tights.

Ankle boots are a great investment; they will go with everything. The thigh high boot is a huge trend this winter but be careful — not all of us can pull this look off. If you are not sure, play it safe and wear a boot to the calf.

Street Chic is the look this winter. It’s simple, simply by adding a skinny jean or narrow leg pants, a pair of ankle boots, flats or heels. Add a crisp shirt or a cashmere jumper, grab your statement coat or scarf wrap and accessorise with a hat, sunglasses and your favourite bag ready to hit the streets.

Mens winter trends for 2016

Emerald green, camel, navy, dark grey, black, burgundy, reminiscent of private school uniforms. Tartan emerges yet again as a popular pattern choice in recent street style looks.

Exactly like the dark two-piece suit, a crisp white button-down shirt is a fashion must-have for every stylish gentleman. A white shirt can unmistakably contribute to the more casual look by adding a pair of jeans and a shawl neck jumper.

The trench coat is a great staple for any man’s wardrobe. Colours are black, navy, beige, or this season’s colour — emerald green.

A traditional two-piece suit in darker tones is a necessity in every working man’s closet. Whether it’s black, navy blue or dark grey, shiny or matt, a suit is the foundation of a professional look. Since a dark suit can be paired with pretty much everything, you should establish it as your go-to item. But just because a dark suit is a safe choice, that doesn’t mean you can’t play with it when you feel a bit bolder. For a little pop of colour, complement it with a vibrant pocket square or a patterned tie.

If there is one item of clothing you’ll most certainly need for the colder months, it is a great quality shawl neck jumper. The ultimate staple piece for classic winter style dressing, a shawl neck is the best way to do warmth.

Statement Jackets
Bold graphics and statement phrases emerged as a consistent feature in jackets amongst recent street style looks, emboldened through vivid colours and novel textures.
