Trends to look out for in 2016
- Contrasting White Collar
The contrasting white collar is definitely not to look out for. The contrasting white collar brings more style to any outfit especially an ankara outfit or a top with prints on it.
2. Mono-colored Co-ords
Co-ords are definitely a win for 2016. Our favorite bloggers have rocked this style to pure satisfaction. The co-ord is definitely a go-to outfit especially the knit ones.
3. Ankara co-ords
These type of co-ords are coming back in full force. If you follow me on instagram you would know Ankaras are my style goals for 2016 meaning I hope to wear more ankara, that would be styled by me just like the ones I’m wearing below.
The Danshiki material is definitely coming back ( it low-key never went anywhere) but I mean its being used in a very trendy way now. Before most people just made the Danshiki tops, now people are being more creative in their Danshiki designs.
Turbans are very stylish and definitely are a yes for 2016! Many fashion bloggers are returning back to this trend.
With the natural hair movement, more black women are coming to accept who they are. The Afro is definitely a political and fashion statement. Ashish ss16 collection and Beyonce in her new song “formation” are just 2 of a few jumping on this band wagon of Afros as a fashion and political statement.
African prints are becoming more visible this year. Seems a lot of people are returning back to their roots and coming to appreciate the beauty in the things of their culture.
8. Round Clear Lens
Round clear lens are already a thing in 2016! Just wait till mid-2016 and everyone is going to have a pair.
9. Prints clash
With the return of prints, prints-clash is definitely a style that has to come back. When you hear of mixing prints you think of not fashionable but now mixing prints is the new fashionable.
10. Bomber Jackets
Bomber jackets are already a trend. PS: if you’re looking for what to get me to celebrate my blogversary next month, a pink bomber jacket would make me happy to the moon)
11. Button down shirt worn backwards
Probably the weirdest style but definitely the cutest!
12. Sox and Heels
I’m still very much indifferent about this trend but if it makes my legs feel more comfortable in my heels, why not?
I would love to know what trends you would be rocking this year…
