SS16 TRENDS13 January 2016
I'm loving this New Year as the thought of fresh starts and new opportunities to achieve and conquer feels good. Not only that, but every horoscope I read lately keeps telling me that 2016 IS MY YEAR. No joke, every horoscope. What's it going to bring I wonder? A new liver, some willpower, the winning numbers on the lottery or even...dun, dun, daaan...a boyfriend. Hmmmm, let's not get too carried away.
Alongside the whole 'New Year, New Me' vibes sits the most important newness of all - a NEW SEASON! Yep, welcome to SS16. I have been hitting Pinterest hard looking for Spring outfit inspo ready to clear out the wardrobes and have a shift round. I love to see what I have collected over the years and whether it can transition nicely into a new season - all about saving those pennies innit.
So I thought why not shout about my favourite trends whilst I am at it. There's quite a lot I am digging but my highlights so far have to be Slip Dresses, Bomber Jackets and Off-The-Shoulder.
Slinky slip dresses are massive and so are the 90s - hooray. One of my fave eras. The whole underwear as outerwear concept is definitely one of the first trends to tap into this season and I am so down for that.

All hail a Bomber Jacket, TBF I have plenty of these already, hell I am SO 2016 ready. I have always loved the off-duty vibes of the bomber, it adds edge to an outfit and the dress-up, dress-down aspect is a sartorial bonus. They have had an update this season though - think over-sized, colours, longer in length and metal or embroidered detailing.

This spring it's all about showing a little bit of shoulder, be it totally bare, sexy cut-outs or cool asymmetrical necklines; basically dare to bare. I picked up lots of off-the-shoulder tops in the last of the summer sales so hopefully have enough to kick-start this trend in some of my outfits. However, I'm sure I'll invest in some more along the way.
