PUKAAR MAGAZINE’S MEGAN HYDEN BRINGS YOU THE LATEST ESSENTIAL WINTER FASHION TRENDS
Brilliant basics and current classics are perfectly on trend as we enter 2016. You won’t have to look far for some plain t-shirts, which is just as well as these basics are a must have in your wardrobe as the season starts to turn from winter to spring. You can’t go wrong with a pair of turn-up mom or boyfriend jeans over these next few months – a classic item, but a sure way to present a relaxed and fun style.
Liven up your contemporary and classic casual look with some stand out signature fashion accessories. Add a flare of sophistication with a skinny style fashion scarf. A bold pattern such as animal print will be sure to add a touch of class to your cool, casual look team with a comfortable and casual trench coat for warmth. If you opt for a natural, camel or brown toned coat, match it with a pair of brown leather brogues.
Knee high boots are high in the fashion stakes this season. Sued, leather or any other material that excites the fashion guru in you – you’ll be sure to make an impression at the start of the year in this choice of footwear that can be teamed with a turtle neck. These are still a key fashion statement at this time of year. Pick a high-neck dress for a stylish and simple but suave evening outfit. Evergreen tones are very fitting as the season changes to spring.
Look outstanding on all occasions with a touch of fur to your evening outfit. A gilet is an elegant addition to any winter outfit, with the waterfall style a very popular choice.
No outfit is complete without those finishing touch accessories. Be bold and brave with some patterned tights to accompany your simpler dresses or skirts. Get ahead of the fashion game with a gorgeous half-moon shaped bag – an upcoming trend as we move into the early month of spring.
Whether you stay simple and sophisticated, or go bold and brave, with these fashion trends you will be sure to start this New Year being a style sensation.
Stay warm whilst displaying a cool neo-seventies rebel and rock look with a collared leather jacket. This current fashion trend is fitting for a casual day time outfit. Alternatively, it can be teamed with some smart chino trousers for a more formal evening look.
You will be pleased to be informed that you can still feel comfortable whilst looking smart and sophisticated this winter. If you wish, you can choose to put aside the skinny fit trousers and opt for more loosely fitting, baggier chinos and trousers.
Burgundy, a warm winter tone, is a key colour choice on the red carpet this year. Pair a warm coloured shirt with a long chequered scarf to ensure you are hitting all the right colour and pattern trends in your smart outfit attire.
Brogues are a constant sensible and sophisticated choice of footwear for your smart evening outfit; but don’t be afraid to wear a pair of utility ankle boots for your casual daytime look. Ankle boots have become increasingly popular for men in recent fashion seasons and this is yet to change in the coming year.
Display true style wearing a casual t-shirt with an oversized pocket – a common addition on many items of clothing this year’s opening months. Don’t be shy to try out the patchwork pattern fashion trend that is cropping up in many high street stores.
Even though we are heading in the direction of spring, turtleneck jumpers should still hold a prominent place in your 2016 wardrobe. If this style of knitwear is not keeping you adequately warm at the beginning of the year investing in an oversized three-quarter length coat will be sure to add that extra layer of cushioning warmth.
Coats and jackets with fur, or those that sport natural tones such as brown and beige, are bang on trend this winter. Don’t feel like you are shying away by wearing grey either, as the more neutral and adaptable colour is proving to be a popular, sophisticated, and stylish colour choice.
Jeans – a never ending wardrobe must have. A pair of mid-wash jeans with rolled up ankles will be sure to cooperate perfectly with your casual winter warming knitwear and turtle neck clothing.
