Trends to Carry through to 2016
2015 was a big year for fashion. From high end designer shake ups to androgyny taking centre stage, there’s a lot to look back on. But what will we take through to 2016? Here are some trends that you can count on sticking around for the long haul, or at least ‘til summer.
A huge colour for AW15/16 that we’ll see come right through to summer. It’s uniform dressing at its most literal. In 2015 it was the utility coat that was the hero of winter months and that, alongside the classic parka will continue to reign through the first part of the year. We’ll see this moving on for summer with utility getting ever more relevant, it’s a great festival trend so get ready to khaki up with shirts, trousers and light puffa jackets.
2. Tonal Dressing
The easiest update of last year continues. With help from the Nautical trend dropping early this year, you can layer up your blues and look totally on trend with minimal effort. Plus, denim counts! So grab your indigo wash jeans and blue sweat and it’s literally as easy as that!
3. Mod Revival
Our favourite trend of last year returns with a tonal twist. This year’s Mod nods to utility with pocket shirts and streamlined pieces. The favourite jacket of 2015 returns in the MA1 bomber along with the classic track jacket. This will be Madchester’s go to style of the season.
4. Double Denim
With the aforementioned Nautical trend hailing indigo hues as key and the boiler suit making another attempt at hitting the mainstream, all over denim has never been easier. With a legion of new jeans styles for 2016, boohooMAN’s denim offering continues to gain pace, and with long line denim jackets to boot, you can work your double denim with pride.
