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.

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.

Ripped jeans have officially established themselves as a wardrobe staple. From celebrities to fashionistas – everyone LOVES this trend, and I don’t think we’re going to let go of it so easily

Warpaint: Alexander McQueen and Make-Up

Warpaint: Alexander McQueen and Make-Up

A new satellite exhibition coinciding with the major retrospective on Savage Beauty, is the first ever exhibition to explore the designer’s catwalk make-up.

It aims to unravel the process and inspirations behind the collections by exploring key looks developed by McQueen’s most trusted make-up artists through three recurring themes.

  • Amplified, where facial features are obscured and exaggerated.
  • Deviated, where make-up goes beyond the traditional areas and covers other parts of the body, and
  • Stripped, where the look is so subtle it intensifies the meaning of the collection.

Whats even more exciting is the exhibition also explores make-up digitally, working with digital creative studio Holition, visitors will be able to try-on a few select looks in a specially created app, using Holition’s new ‘FACE’ technology

I would love to take a flight to London, just to experience this exhibition – wouldn’t you?
