Fashion and trends are always changing and it’s your duty as a citizen of the world to keep up with the times. If you’ve ever seen a lady at the supermarket who looks like she’s stuck in the eighties with acid washed jeans and frayed, Farrah Fawcett hair, you’ll know that in your head, you’re judging her and contemplating whether or not you should whisper in her ear that the year is 2016 and not 1986.
You can be thankful that trends come and go so quickly, as you really hated last seasons popular neckline and as much as you try, you can’t get a romper of any kind to look good on your frame. They seem to make them for short-waisted, long-legged, rail-thin women, anyway. You’ll be happy the moment those stop gracing the stores. The mannequins make them look great, but on a normal body, the romper just isn’t romping.
With this being said, there are some trends coming on the horizon in 2016 and it’s time to add the hottest fashion accessories of 2016 to your closet, starting with this:
Watch What Happens
Watches aren’t just for telling time. As a matter of fact, nowadays with smartphones, a watch is more of an accessory than anything. You know what’s really cool about a watch, though? It does double duty. It serves multiple functions. If you’re in a business meeting, and you don’t have your phone on you, you don’t have to sit wondering at the time. It’s right there on your wrist.
Consider adding a Bering watch to your accessory collection in 2016. You’ll find you not only know the time at all times, but you have also successfully dressed up your outfit and added a flare of trendy sophistication at the same time. You can’t go wrong with watches in 2016.
The next accessory you’ll want to have in your closet for the year 2016 is characterized by its chunk and its charm. The runway has been filled with accessories from earrings, to bracelets, to necklaces, to headpieces, to sunglasses. The commonality among these accessories in 2016 has to be the chunk. Dainty isn’t in. It’s bold, it’s thick, and it’s a statement by itself.
The trick is to go bold with one of the above accessories and accent with clothes that are sophisticated, classy, and drape along the body like it’s the 40’s, darling. Once you choose your chunky statement accessory, you can then move onto the next category.
If shoes are a girls best friend, then a bag is her boyfriend because it’s carried closer to the heart-oh, who are we kidding? The bag is the boyfriend because it’s gotta be cute, and it’s carrying the money. In addition to your bold earrings and a watch for every occasion, you’ll need to add a graphic design bad to the mix. The trend is very Paris inspired. The graphics range from geometric, to textile, to floral. Keep it classy, and stray away from anything too cartoonish. The graphic bag is less Marvel inspired and more like walking the streets of France.
Shoes that Could Take You to the Moon
Forget dainty and slimming silhouettes. Shoes in 2016 are all about the chains and straps. The black, clunky sandals are the hot shoe to have, but you could also get away with a chunky sneaker as long as it’s blinged out and makes a statement.
If you feel like you’re a martian coming coming to Earth during the 90’s, mixed with a gladiator, then you’re doing it right. If you have a problem with drawing attention to your feet, then you probably won’t like what this season is all about, because it’s all about the form of the foot.
When you pair these hot and heavy shoes with the other accessories popular in the 2016 season, you’ll be the trendiest and most fashionable person on the block. So don’t forget. It’s the watches, the chunky statement earrings, necklaces, headpieces or sunglasses, the Paris inspired graphic bags, and the rad and old century, yet modern, yet futuristic shoes. Easy as that. Got it?
