Trends to Try in 2016!

BANNERPeople say it every year – new year, new me! Although that is a super over used phrase, I feel there is a tad of inspiration and truth to it! This saying may be a crazy cliche that everyone says at the beginning of each year, but it is a positive statement to start your year off right! Those who are lucky, will actually accomplish those New Year’s resolutions that we all think so hard about in the first two weeks of January!!

Well today, I am bringing to you some new fashion trends to try in 2016! Why? Style keeps us on our toes, and being the style blogger that I am, am always looking to try new things!

TULLE

I am currently obsessed with tulle. I have never worn it…but it is on my list of things to try – fashion wise. In mid-December when I was hunting around style blogs and Pinterest for holiday party looks, I came across so many fashionable tulle based looks and thought to myself – “I need a tulle skirt!”. There are so many cute tulle skirts to try out there, but what’s great is that tulle skirts are (apparently!) simple to make as well! Which is what I am planning to try very soon…

FAUX FUR 

Collars, vests, coats…it’s all in trend and I am on board! However, I must say…this is a bit circumstantial. If you are strutting your stuff at the mall, or downtown…fur completely jives. However, I have to say that I do get peculiar looks on campus when I am sporting my ultra-furry vest (probably because it is an attention grabber…and looks a little strange amongst the sea of sweatpants that is lecture). However, smaller accessories made in faux fur steal the show…nevertheless, I love faux fur!

LEOPARD

Leopard print is quickly becoming my most favourite pattern to style. I stick to accessories with this print because it is so versatile and it really goes with (surprisingly!) a lot. We have seen blogger after blogger tell us to pattern mix (and I do!), and this is one of the patterns that I highly recommend to do so with! Leopard and plaid, leopard and stripes…the possibilities are endless. I wear this print in booties, scarves, beanies and gloves (so far!)…maybe it’s time to branch out to bigger and better things? A.K.A. Sweaters, cardigans, and anything else I can get my hands on.

PATTERNED LEGGINGS

Prior to this day, I really did not consider leggings to be a valid replacement for pants. In fact, I usually find leggings to be incredibly annoying when worn in place of pants because I can’t every get them to stay up (which results in always yanking them up over my hips). However, it turns out that I really hadn’t given them a chance. SO I ordered myself a pair of red tartan leggings…and I have seen the light. Worn correctly, patterned leggings are a blessing in disguise!

THE CAMEL COAT

I was heading into an exam earlier this month, and what do I see? A camel coat here, a camel coat there. Now what is a camel coat you ask? Pretty much what it sounds like…a coat that is camel-coloured. Well, wouldn’t you know after seeing them one after another, I saw them all over the mall, in catalogues…and I’m going to be bold and say…the camel coat is totally in. I am completely digging the colour and of course…the in-trend material (which is usually wool or faux wool).

FEATHERED SKIRT

Feathers are too bird-like for me, however, you never know what could come into trend. Many bloggers have hopped on this style train already, and it’s something that has caught my eye as well. It’s becoming so in style that chains like Winners – believe it, I saw it!! I am loving the black feathered skirts the most, because although it’s a wild trend, it also passes as as a dressy casual bottom that you can really rock (all seasons!)

There you have it – six style trends to try in 2016! I am going to do my best to try every single one of these trends. Why? Well because it’s fun, and because it will broaden my horizons in style! Besides…jeans and a top gets boring from day to day.

My Camel Picks!

The Fall colour palette is always something to look forward to! A couple of weeks ago, I showed you exactly how much I love the colour wine! Well, in today’s post, I am going to go through some of my favourite pieces I have come across lately in the colour camel. This neutral colour is all the rage this season (as I have pointed out several times in the last month) and it makes me giddy to think that all of these picks are being sold right now! Can I go shopping please?

What exactly qualifies as “camel”…because that’s an animal right? Well, yes…that’s true, camel is an animal…but it is also a fabulous neutral colour that falls right in line with this season. There is nothing I love more than a good wardrobe neutral, but this colour doesn’t even have to be a neutral! That’s what is so amazing about it! You can literally make it the focus colour in your outfit, and not look washed out or drab (provided it is worn properly of course). Not to worry…I have lined up some great examples that I am going to review right now. I am going to show you two things today:

1) My choice camel looks. 

2) Where you can find some great camel items. 

This is one of my favourite ways to wear camel – in a outerwear or coat. See how it becomes the focus rather than the neutral or compliment in this outfit? She is wearing all black underneath with all black accessories, acting as a blank canvas for the camel coat to be displayed on. Even better, instead of wearing black or another colour in the shoe, she wore camel strappies…which really just completes the look.

This is another great way to wear the colour. In the accessories. A soft, camel-coloured scarf is perfect…pair it with a hand bag and other marvelous accessories and you have a great overall look. I especially love the winter white sweater and how it goes so well with the camel. It’s important to note that because camel is a neutral, it goes really well with other neutrals (black, white, etc…)

Like I mentioned above, having an all black ensemble and then adding pops of camel through accessories is a great way to wear the colour. I own a few camel hats and they are great to accessorize with. The one that I debuted in the banner above is also a great one (it will be linked below for your perusal)! Even in the Fall, headgear is amazing to wear and great to style with. It takes your outfit up a notch, and with a neutral hat like this one, you can really wear it with anything…

Stick to all black and add pops of print or colour in your accessories. The look for wandering stylishly around Paris / the love assembly:

The items that I showed in the three outfit reviews, are unfortunately not linked below. However, I have linked the items I picked out for my banner (which are all available in-store right now – just use the links below!!). My top three items of my camel picks are:

Camel Hat camel ponchocamel bag

Like I said, I am obsessed with camel hats and this one is perfect for transitioning into the Fall season. I love how it features a cute band around the rim, to add that extra bit of glam! This poncho sweater is from Michael Kors and although, I don’t own a lot of his product, I have my sights set on this gorgeous knit!! I could style this to no end!! Of course, how could I not choose a Kate Spade bag to be in my top three for the post? This bag is timeless and really can be worn all through the year!!

Well, there you have it – my camel picks. Hopefully you will take a look at these cute pieces that I love or find your own fabulous pieces to style! Camel is one of the neutrals that is really making a come out this season and so it should be!! Let me know how you wear this neutral in the comments below!
