If you want to keep your style current and fresh, you need to remember to add a healthy dose of It pieces to the wardrobe every season. But how to find the fresh new styles that are worth our attention? Let’s have a look at the must-have styles for Winter 2016.
Brave the wintery cold in a stylish yet cozy fur-lined vest that can be layered over a belt and chunky knit scarf. Whether you choose a fur vest or opt for a sleeveless coat, remember to balance out the proportion in the lower parts of the body. You can achieve this by wearing skinny jeans, leggings, jeggings and long boots such as suede over-the-knee boots. This is how Olivia Palermo complets her cold-weather looks.
Chain strap bag
Everyone is carrying a chain strap bag and I am no exception! After analyzing bloggers’ outfits of the last Fashion Weeks, it came to my attention that many of them had picked structured long-handled bags as the hottest accessory of the season. Exuding sophistcation of a Chanel bag and stylish addition of an on-trend chain detail, a chain strap bag is the secret weapon of the hands-free accessories. To channel your inner Anna Dello Russo, look for a little bit Chanel-inspired quilted bag that is mini or medium sized.
Another wardrobe essential for winter 2016 is a crossover skirt, as seen at many fashion shows such as Prabal Gurung and Vionnet. For the season, the look usually comes in romantic pastel shades and wintery white (yes, you can wear white after Labor Day). Winter takes plenty of warm clothing such as sweaters, thick gloves, mittens, and a scarf and this trend makes a great excuse to incorpotate some lightweight layers into your wardrobe. This is a great way to add some cool contrast into your winter outfits.
Lace has been on the pedestal for a few seasons in a row. No wonder, lace is posh and seductive and you can always find one in vintage wardrobes! We have spotted some of the best lace looks on celebrities. In 2016, celebs favour lace in different colours and Anna Kendrick hit ladylike note with a red dress from Dolce & Gabbana. The must-have fabric of the season, lace adds exclusive flair to otherwise casual clothes. This is a way to sport a jumpsuit or a romper suit (Emily Blunt, Lily Collins, both in Elie Saab) on the red carpet.
If you cannot choose between skirts and pants, I have some great news for you. This season, meaning winter 2016, you do not have to! One of the hero pieces to come out of the fall/winter collections is the culotte. Thanks to the genious cut and fluid fabrics, culottes are as comfortable as trousers and as graceful as a skirt. It might seem like a tricky trend to tackle, but with these easy tips you will wear culottes with the ease of Alexa Chung! Recently, the British fashionista went for folkloric look and paired her baggy pants with an emroidered top.
