The 4 AW16 Style Trends that we will be wearing next season. July 27 2016, 0 Comments
The Autumn Winter 2016 fashion shows are the trend setters for what we will be wearing next season.
We as Aussies are lucky that we are one season behind so we can get to see the trends and street styles (street style can actually dictate fashion these days) and how they can be worn ahead of time. At the moment I’m looking at our international ‘street style stars’ and seeing their outfit combos for summer….so much fun, so many cool outfits!
These AW16 trends will be coming through next year for our autumn/winter. Good for us, so that we can prepare and have in mind, that what we buy now will still be on trend next year and the year after and maybe way after….
The 4 key trends for the AW16
This is the new kid on the block. It can be called the Gucci Effect, a mismatch of opposing colours, contrasting crazy patterns, models wearing anything from frayed edge tweeds, luxurious silks to tiaras and huge 70’s sunglasses.
The Kooky eccentric is offbeat, unconventional with a sense of style and who definitely does not follow outdated rules. This trend will be an interesting one to watch; it requires confidence as it is quite out there, however there will be toned down versions of the kooky eccentric. Watch this space and I will let you know how.
Romantic lace will remain for a while longer. It was seen reworked into new variations on the slip dress, tie neck blouses and beautiful sheer black tops with ruffles and fluidity that can easily transfer your outfit from day to night. This fluid silhouette is great for our coming summer as its light weight so if you’re looking for a new look for our spring/summer this is a good one to go for as it can be worn in our following winter.
Earthy neutral tones in olive, khaki and terracotta were seen on the runway along with copper tones, warm rust and cognac shades adding depth and richness. Soft camel and white to lighten a darker pallet was refreshing. Also Brown has made a big colour comeback; we will be seeing lots more brown next year! The silhouette is oversized with languid lines, perfect for cocooning yourself in a cold winter.
Pleats and plisse have already been seen in our fast fashion stores and I’m happy to say that they are here to stay! They were seen on the runway everywhere from pretty knee length kilt skirts to long ball gowns in block colours. This is such a practical trend (for those of you like me, who love practical fashion)
You can dress a pleated skirt up with a pair of high heels and dress it down with white sneakers and a bomber. You’ve got to love that! I bought a pleated skirt a little while ago and I’m so happy with it. Watch this space for my pleated skirt styling tips!
