It’s time to talk about my favorite fashion trends like I do every season. I eagerly wait for this moment when I analyze the runway fashion trends and discuss about incorporating them into my personal style. For those of you who are new to my blog, I always start a season by doing a trend post that helps me and my readers plan their wardrobes for the upcoming season. So, today’s post is dedicated to my favorite winter fashion trends for 2016. Are you ready?
My personal style has always been about mixing fashion with comfort. My excitement reached new heights on being able to see the same getting translated into a runway fashion trend this fall. The winter fashion trends this year is all about fun combinations of elegance and sporty. Must say, quite an interesting mix! Along with the regular high waist pants teamed with dressy blouses and classy boots, the runway showed bomber jackets worn with high heeled pumps and sneakers teamed with pencil skirts! Style is indeed getting experimental with every passing season as fashion lovers are daring to step out of the tried and tested fashion rules and expressing their personalities through the clothes they wear. I am no body to judge whether it is rebellion or freedom of self expression, but honestly I am enjoying every moment writing my trend post today!
So, here goes the first part of my favourite fashion trends for Autumn/Winter 2016 (I warn you, this post is filled with surprises that you may or may not like! 🙂 ) :
Pussy bow blouses make it to one of the most sought after fall fashion trends this year. I have always loved the pussy bow blouses because they are so feminine and dressy. This winter however, we have the option of dressing them up with blazers or adding some edge with a biker jacket. It can’t get any more versatile, isn’t it?
The bomber jacket is indeed the sporty take on style this winter. I am sure many of you have already stocked up your wardrobe with a piece or two of these jackets. In case you didn’t know that the cool bomber jacket is one of the hottest trends of the season! Go grab on now and wear it with everything, I mean literally everything from a pleated skirt to denims to formal pants!
#Layer a Dress
Layering is not a new concept for winter fashion but layering a sensuous slip dress (or for that matter any dress) over a turtle neck tee is. When I saw this trend for the first time I didn’t know how to react because it was obviously the most unexpected kind of layering I have seen so far. But soon I started loving it for the most plain and simple reason-it’s unusual and that’s why it’s fun. If you love this trend, just go ahead and wear any kind of sleeveless dress with any kind of tee to create your own version of it. However, the higher the neckline of the tee the better it is.

When an wardrobe basic becomes the next big trend, it’s not a basic any more. Or is it? I am confused but you don’t have to be. I am sure you already have quite a few pieces of turtle neck tops and sweaters and now it’s time to bring them all out, layer them in cool styles and be the trendiest girl in the block! If winter shopping is in your plans, don’t forget to grab a few in laces and prints as well.
That brings me to the end of the first part of my favourite fashion trends for Autumn/Winter 2016. It was an interesting experience putting together this list. All the winter fashion trends are simple and yet quite different from any of my earlier trend posts. I would love to know your thoughts on these trends while I get back to drafting the second part of my fall fashion trends post. Don’t miss it! 🙂
