Treat yourself to some Resort looks right now without the added cost of an expensive getaway. Here are a few trends for the coming year to help navigate the wild weather in style.
Lucky for you, the
2016 fashion forecast
is looking bright.
Wider angles draped with care crop up in 2016’s blurred lines between 90s style, 70s silhouettes, and modern tailoring. Baby blue wide-leg trousers like the Whisper Light Cropped Peg Trousers hit all the right notes when cropped above the ankle. Layer on the Spring Mozart High Neck Jumper with a billowing hem for ultra-comfortable and versatile dressing. For something a little heavier and a bit more edge, try some tonal texture play like the crackle-coated jersey on the Cracked Earth Layered Jersey Dress.
Metallics turn up the star power with a silvery sheen in 2016. A threadbare shimmery weave adds maximalist flare to a 90s minimalist slip dress, like the Flicker Rib Metallic Midi Dress. Toss on a pair of white trainers for an easy weekend look or swap for heels and a necklace to unlock the next level of officewear. For an extra spicy weekend style, try the Sunbeamer Fitted Sequin Dress Fitted Sequin Dress paired with black leather mules for a second to none night out ensemble.
Cross-cutting silhouettes are coming up in 2016 fashion. Appearing in everything from jumpsuits to cage dresses, X marks the style you want to keep on deck this year. The Sundae Suiting Pinafore Dress takes the cake, blending boxy proportions, schoolgirl charm and the crisscross trend for the perfect piece to wear now and keep rocking right through the transition seasons.
Black, White (& Blue) Print
This year’s spring runways showed off heady black and white graphic prints, making something like the textured Winter Birch Coat perfect for the still-chilly days ahead. Sometimes, though, that extra cool factor comes in by going ever-so-slightly against the grain. Try throwing a touch of robin’s egg into your nest of black and white lines. Pieces like the tech-inspired Tapir Wave Crepe Shirt Dress gives a fresh face to a lounge-ready fit that’s bright enough for the office or an afternoon outing. Reverse the colorway and silhouettes with the slim-fitted Tapir Wave Denim Cropped Jeans for an active take on 2016 fashion.
