5 Trends we’ll be taking with us in to 2016

The countdown to 2016 begins now and I find myself wondering what trends will be hot, not, or shelved.

It’s very hard to forecast what will be in-vogue, however, 2015 has given us some solid trends we aren’t ready to let go of. Here’s a quick round up of 5 trends i believe will carry us through the next season!

Pointy Shoes:

The sleek and sophisticated construction of this shoe not only makes an outfit instantly chic, but elongates your legs. Definitely a win-win!

Cross-body bags

You’ve probably got one (or a few) trusty crossbody bags by now. From adorable mini buckets to chic and sophisticated top-handle bags, don’t think that a small crossbody can’t make a big statement.

Coach Crossbody

Ear Accessories

Initially the only options you had is hoops or studs? With an ever expanding jewelry vocabulary, and ear jewelry especially you may feel a sudden urge to visit your local piercing studio.

Play Suits

From printed daytime playsuits to gorgeous going out lace playsuits it’s my new go-to ensemble and the perfect alternative to wearing a dress to a party.

Burberry Brings On Some Christmas Cheer

It’s been 15 years since Billy Elliot was released, earning itself a part in British movie history. To celebrate that fact, Burberry, another great British institution, has taken the dance-themed film as its inspiration for its 2015 festive campaign.

Now this might be old news, but what better time to share this news, right in time for some christmas cheer!

Want to know more? Here’s how it goes:

Elton John and Julie Walters lead a pack of British talent. Both, of course, have ties to Billy Elliot; Walters starred as dance teacher Sandra Wilkinson in the original film, while Elton wrote the music for the film’s hugely-successful stage adaptation, Billy Elliot the Musical.

Joining them is comedian James Corden, actress Michelle Dockery (better known as Downton Abbey’s Lady Mary), musicians James Bay and George Ezra, Romeo Beckham – for whom it’s the second Burberry Christmas campaign – models Naomi Campbell and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, as well as Rosie’s brother Toby, who is welcomed into the Burberry fold for the first time.

Now here’s the best part:

Burberry has donated £500,000 in recognition of each artist’s participation in the festive campaign to two charities that help young people in the North of England community of Easington where Billy Elliot was filmed.

Now that’s what I call a Merry Christmas!

Think Pink : Breast Cancer Awareness!

From the beginning, millions of people have been supporting breast cancer awareness with the little pink ribbon.

In our country, Breast Cancer awareness is paramount, as several women suffer from this curable, yet life threatening disease due to lack of awareness!

While most of us may not sport a ribbon on a daily basis, perhaps we could incorporate a little bit of pink in to our daily wardrobe to show our support!
