2016 for one has been a very eventful year for the majority of us and by no surprise the fashion industry has dominated the year with the start of new trends and old ones coming back. In this blog post I have enlisted 3 of the most influential trends that I believe dominated the year of 2016.
I never thought that we’d ever see chokers as popular as they were in the 90’s however 2016 proved me wrong as everyone this year was wearing them from your favorite celebrities to brands like zara and missguided incorporating them into their designs. I think most of us can agree when I say that we all forgot that other necklaces besides chokers existed this year because they seemed to be the only thing that people wore but what can I say they go with EVERYTHING.
Band tees or merch tees as some people like to refer to them have been around for basically forever but they hit their peak this year especially during the summer and festival months. This year almost everybody who is anybody was wearing Kanye West’s Pablo tour merchandise, people were adding their own twists to band tees to add that bit of extra grunge by ripping or distressing them. One of my favorite looks with this trend was when Kendall Jenner walked out with a triangular cut Metallica tshirt earlier this year – if anybody knows how make a boring outfit absolutely killer, its her.
Athleisure offered comfort style and confidence in the year 2016. This was the year that people were, i’d like to say more chilled and laid back which is why althleisure wear became so popular amongst fashionistas. Whether your going to the gym or on shopping spree who knows, i guess it’s a mystery that people will never solve. Gigi Hadid aka the model of the year helped leggings, sports bras and all of its sportswear affiliates, become the normal for everyday in 2016.
