Fashion Trends That Redefined The Year 2016

By Pratyasha , 24 Dec 2016

Fashion 2016 was as exciting as the U.S. Elections. Many old styles made massive comebacks and were reinvented. Here is our compilation of the most popular styles in clothing, shoes, make up and accessories that made up this year.    

1. Bomber jackets

These are the talk of the town this year with almost all high street fashion brands having a huge variety of colours. Forever 21 as a whole new rage of motif embroidered ones. Google reported the bomber jacket to be the most searched for tend this year.

 

2. Choker

No other fashion accessory has gained as much popularity as the Choker. They were sensational this year to the point of becoming fashion essentials. Every girl ended up buying one.

 

 

 3. Wide-Legged Trousers

With leggings becoming last season, wide legged trousers took 2016 fashion by storm. Paired with kurtis, tucked in shirts and even crop tops, these trousers ruled street fashion. These were so popular and stylish that everyone had to own a pair.

 

4.  Block heels

A 90s fashion trend, block heels were resurrected this year with everything from sandals to boots having thick heels which became the perfect work shoes because they were so much more comfortable to wear as compared to pumps.

 

5. Hobo Bags

Hobo bags are big, spacious bags can hold pretty much all your daily essentials. These were all the rage this year precisely for their utility and the laid back casual look they created. Bags in 2016 were all about the size.

 

6. Metallic lipsticks

Kylie Jenner has had a fair share of criticism about these but accept it or not, metallic lipsticks were a huge beauty innovation of 2016. With colours like gold, blue, silver and even black everyone wanted to try the metal look at least once.

 

 

7. Off Shoulders

One fashion trend that has always existed but kind of took off only this year was off shoulders. Also known as cold shoulders, summer 2016 was flooded with these, Sarojini Nagar in Delhi could vouch for that!

 

 

8. Wrap and Tie shoes

Wrap and tie shoes were widely worn this year with skirts, dresses, shorts, and any piece of clothing where the legs were left clear to be coiled with laces any way you want. They looked super cool and funky no doubt.

 

9. Floral Prints

Summer 2016 was all about floral prints and saw them being used not just in dresses and tops but even something as traditional as sarees. Everything from large bold flowers to small flower and leaf patterns, the style crowd embraced it all.

 

 

10. Denim Jackets with quirky patchwork

Your wardrobe isn't complete without a denim jacket and 2016 saw the rise of denim jackets with a twist. Extremely popular versions include the acid washed denim jacket and ones with quirky patchwork.

11. John Lennon Sunglasses

Sure, shades were always in, but the most popular thing in 2016 was definitely the round lens or 'John Lennon' sunglasses. If you want to look uber cool then these are the shades that you simply must add to your collection!

Did you manage to get hold of all of these?
