January Favourites

Sunday, 31 January 2016

Fashion is all about reflecting your personal tastes in line with the trends. As we have officially entered 2016, this is just the right time to talk of some of the fashion trends, which are likely to see this year. We have already seen the spring 2016 collections, so there are already a few hints. Without taking any more time, here’s a quick list that will help you make your shopping list.

Stripes are back
This trend comes from the spring 2016 fashion weeks, but you are likely to wear more stripes this year. Top designer houses have experimented with the colour choices, and the stripes are bold and more prominent, in both horizontal and vertical styles. To create more appealing looks, you can go for bold stripes for a complete work suit or else, just match a regular solid tee with a striped skirt. There’s a lot that you can experiment with, and for a few ideas, you can check spring collections of Christian Dior, Alexander Wang and Max Mara. You can click here for some great striped clothing choices too.

More ruffles and pleats
These are two individual trends, but you are likely to see both in equal measures. Ruffles have been extensively used for many years now, and it rather feels that the trend makes a comeback every couple of years. Ruffles also work for the fact that there is a feminine touch to it, so you can go for very elemental dresses or get one designed by your local designer. You can find a few designs at Michael Kors, Balenciaga, Rosie Assoulin and Balmain. Pleats, on the other hand, were more structural, and starting from floral designs to more classic ideas, there were quite a few things for one and all. Some designers to check for this include Carolina Herrera, Gucci, and Emilio Pucci.

Sequins will continue
Lanvin, which worked with sequins in a big way in 2014, has continued this trend for 2016 too. This year, you will see sequins more, so if you have had reservations in the past, this is the right time to take a few chances. Apart from Lanvin, the trend also worked big time for spring with top names like Sonia Rykie, Saint Laurent and Prada. No matter whether you are looking for a complete sequin dress for the party or a top for the evening outings, this is a trend that can continue for the entire year.
It is also worthy to talk of the white shirt tweaks, which was a major gift for the spring. If you are bored with the white shirt, this time you may just give it a quick revamp. We wait for more as the other fashion weeks open in the next few months. Hope you have a great fashion year with plenty to shop for!

Hello and since this is my first post of 2016, Happy New Year! Better late than never! Today I am showing you this really casual outfit which is perfect for putting together when in a rush.

Romwe Coat // New Look Shirt // Piazza Italia Jeans // New Look Loafers

As you can probably tell, it was a very windy day but I think that the photos actually turned out really nice. So don't worry, no gravity defying hair was involved! A few weeks ago Romwe contacted me and kindly sent me this beautiful coat to review. It is very comfy and warm, perfect for our winter weather. Something that I have been obsessed with is this red checked shirt which I find really easy to throw on in the morning paired with some nice jeans. I always find myself choosing these loafers as I find them comfortable and the tassels add a really cute touch.

What do you think of this outfit?

Thanks for stopping by :)
