Currently I am on a quest to restart my interest in fashion.
First of all, I started at Vogue. Where else? I found this street style slide show which suggested the following key trends were emerging for 2016:
- Bomber jackets
- Decorated denim (yikes!)
- Camel (Again?! I prefer mustard or dark brown)
- Vintage tees
Meh. So that was no use.
Next, I went to my old favourite, PopSugar. The target audience is younger than me, but I like the fashion edits. I found this post on what fashion trends are coming in 2016. Perfect! Exactly what I’m looking for. Or not.
Sigh. How depressing.
I haven’t been to Elle in ages, and I have to say they’ve got a lot of interesting articles on their main page. I found an article listing some Pre-Fall 2016 trends that “you might like to try”. Not very convincing. Even they aren’t sure by the sounds of it.
The trends are:
- Navy (like, literally The Navy)
- Black and sheer
- Bold shoulders
- Kelly green
- Large florals
- Shearling coats
Well. It will be interesting to see what trends actually go big.
Part of the problem is of course that it is summer in Sydney, and it is a hot, wet summer this year. A lot of these trends could be big in the stores, just not yet. Maybe later in the year?
I will keep on looking but for now, my money is safe.
