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.

Perfect Party Ensemble

Its December and the so-called Party Season has begun and it is imperative to look your best! I often find myself wondering what does the perfect outfit comprise of? I’ve managed to break it down into 3 main components –

  • The dress
  • The accessories
  • The make up

if you can get this combination right you have a winner on your hands!

The Dress:

Lets get started on the main component of an outfit – the dress. I’ve found the perfect dress from Burberry Prorsum. The collection is called ‘Patchwork, Pattern and Prints.’ Worn on the runway, this midi dress has a flattering cutout cotton and silk-blend top and is lined in silk. The silhouette is my go-to and never fails.

The Accessories

No outfit is complete without the perfect accessories. You could have a stunning outfit but your accessories will let you down if you don’t put much thought in to them! Among all brands available at the moment, i find Jimmy Choo the most reliable. Each season, there is always a vast selection of stand out accessories guaranteed to make a statement. 638348_in_xlJimmy Choo’s soft suede ‘Viola’ sandals are detailed with a swinging tassel – a key detail of the season. This open-toe pair is embellished with sparkling crystals, making them perfect for parties.

The Make up

I’m a firm believer of natural make up. Dewy cheeks, pink lips and natural eye shadow are fail-safe.

SLIDERS: Fashions New Flat

Taking inspiration from the most famous athletic brands, Sliders seem to be gaining popularity .

Sure, they’re not the prettiest shoes in the world, but the pool slider is your footwear staple for the season!

In case you’ve banished all memories of the low-key shoe staple to the back of your mind, let me refresh your memory as to what the term ‘pool slider’ actually means. They’re the chunky soled, thick strapped shoe that used to be the ‘sole’ domain of Olympic swimmers. But, after being seen on countless runways, including Chloe, Gucci and many more, the pool slider is definitely back in vogue – and, thank goodness, have been given a fashion fab update for today’s market.

Here’s a look at few of my personal favorites:

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!

Here’s a quick edit of my favorite pink accessories!

Over The Moon With This Jimmy Choo Collaboration

A classic pair of Choo’s epitomizes sexy & stylish red carpet-worthy stilettos, which makes the brand’s recent collaboration with Moon Boot the most unlikely (and yet, the coolest) design pairing ever. The result of this union? Stylish Moon Boots. Granted, it sounds more like an oxymoron than anything else, but there is something compelling about its high-end makeover.

Talking about this collaboration, creative Director, Sandra Choi stated, “I’ve always loved the futuristic, yet retro-cool Italian design of Moon Boot, and am delighted to create a signature Jimmy Choo look befitting the style,” . And she did just that, giving the Italian brand’s shapeless winter footwear (that was supremely popular in the ’80s) blankets of luxe textures, like shearling and fox fur, and cool treatments (think: crystal studs and high-shine metallics).

This limited edition 8-piece collection has got to be the ultimate fashion flashback with a modern-day twist.

Absolutely cannot wait to try these babies out! Here’s a sneak peek into the collection:
