Pink is the new Black… At least it is for fall 2016! Fall 2016 is full of hot trends that you are sure to love. These trends range from the color pink (as mentioned before), ruffles, menswear, and velvet. According to some of the top fashion magazines like Vogue and fashion blogs like Pop Sugar, the top 10 trends you’ll be sure to love for Fall 16 are:
- Bows and Ties
- Slip Dresses
- X-Marks the Spot (Patterns with X)
- “Granny” Chic
Below I am going to list a few of these trends with ideas of styles and affordable alternatives.
If you are second guessing wearing the color pink all Fall 16 don’t worry there are plenty of ways for you to rock the color pink. The pink that is in for this Fall is a soft blush/rosy pink. This can be worn from head to toe, paired with a jacket or blazer or even as a bottom.
Next up we have leather! Leather can be worn for jackets of course, but what about as a top? Or a skirt? Or even a pair of skinnys! And get this, it can be worn almost anywhere! A leather skirt pencil or cheerleader style can be worn during the day to lunch, the mall, etc. or at night to go out in.
Thirdly we have “checkerboard” or “plaid”. Plaid is a fun and flirty pattern that catches the eye. Dresses, blouses, jackets, and every bottom you can think of can come in plaid.
For our fourth trend we are going to dab into velvet! Velvet is a soft materiel that you can wear to stay warm while still looking fabulous.
Ruffles are great for various occasions, they give a more soft and romanticized look to any wardrobe. Going to a day party, having date night, or just hanging with the girls? Try a ruffle dress! You’re sure to make a statement. Some ruffles dresses can be extremely expensive, but don’t stress, there are a ton of hot if not hotter pieces that are less expensive alternatives.
And lastly we are going to talk about the infamous slip dress. The slip dress first came about in the 90s and is making a comeback. Stars such as Rihanna and Kendal Jenner have been seen wearing them recently. In a few episodes of Sex and the City Carrie Bradshaw also wore a few. Slip dresses are unique in the various ways that they can be worn. Wearing a slip dress during the day for brunch with a long cardigan and sneakers or booties will keep it sexy but subtle. At night try pairing it off with a hot pair of single sole shoes or thigh high boots (and maybe a choker for your neck accessory) and you’re ready for the night. You can check out H&M and Forever 21 for a similar dresses.
These fashion trends for fall 2016 are sure to have you the life of any event, party, or outing you choose to wear them too.
