5 Best Women’s Fashion Trends for Winter 2016
We’re used to seeing over-the-top pieces on runways that often employ laughable proportions. But for fall, designers like Jill Stuart and Cushnie et Ochs managed to fuse structured high-fashion ruffles with wearability.
Once upon a time, the thought of shiny gold attire called to mind glitzy grandmas or Las Vegas party girls. However, thanks to an especially strong showing on Fall 2016 runways, metallics—specifically gold—are poised to be a seasonal standout. At Rachel Zoe, a lamé-like sheer maxi stole the show, while cool-girl label Baja East opted for gold “going-out” tops paired with slouchy tan pants and flat slides, accentuating their wearability.
Turtlenecks Under Dresses
Why wait until next fall when you can start testing out this mega-trend—long-sleeve shirts layered under dresses—right now? Not only is it easy for any body type to pull off, but it allows you to take those slinky slips, glitzy sequins, and low-cut cocktail dresses out in broad daylight.
Perhaps taking cues from the fact that OTS cuts were massive in the retail space throughout 2015 and Spring ’16, designers amped up their offering for Fall 2016, showcasing dramatic blouses and luxe-looking dresses with the subtly sexy silhouette.
It doesn’t matter if you prefer a skinny silk scarf or a chunky choker—just make sure something is around your neck this fall to add a little extra oomph to everything from button-down blouses to cocktail dresses. And nope—it doesn’t make you basic.
