Arguably the most constantly changing industry in the world, fashion is always taking a step toward the bold and new when coming up with the latest trends people will be wearing. From the big labels such as Prada, Christian Dior, and Chanel, to your department store lines of H&M, there are always new fashion trends rolling out.
As a fashion guru, you know the importance of staying up to date on the trends and finding the best looks for your own personal style. 2015 brought big changes to fashion, and 2016 is poised to do the same thing.
The Old Has Become New
It seems as if vintage fashion has made a strong comeback over the past few years as fashionistas are reusing old pieces and giving them brand new life with unique looks. In 2016, don't expect this trend to die off anytime soon.
Make vintage items work for your wardrobe to create brand new looks and potentially save a lot of money in the process. Accessories are one of the first areas of focus to pay attention to, as they can bring the vintage look to your outfit even if everything is far more modern. Gold accessories such as watches, bracelets, necklaces and more can all bring a classic look to your ensemble and create a vintage style if the piece is being reused.
No matter what season it is, layering is your best friend in the world of fashion and is an excellent trend to take with you into 2016. Feel like rocking your favorite summer dress in later winter or early spring? Simply wear a pair of black or even colorful tights underneath it to provide some texture and possibly much-needed warmth. Complete the look by wearing either your favorite cardigan for some additional texture.

For many women, patterns are a make or break style for their wardrobe. They are either too busy or simply not in anymore. If you have something with stripes, now is the time to bring it back to life. Bold, thick stripes are an excellent way to have a little more creativity with your wardrobe and add some real character to it. Whether they are running horizontally on a sweater or vertically on a longer dress, the bolder the stripes are, the better the style will look.
The top layer is arguably the most important feature of any outfit you wear, and your jacket is an important element to focus on no matter what. If you are after a new jacket to introduce into your wardrobe, look no further than a quality bomber jacket. This waist length piece can add character in an exciting color, or complete your all-black ensemble with great class.
