New Year, New Look: 3 Trends to Try in 2016

With New Year’s Eve just a day away, it’s time you took a hard look at your 2015 style transgressions. Were you guilty of wearing too much black? Did you carry the same tired tote day in and day out in 2015? We all make mistakes. So rather than making resolutions you won’t keep, use what’s left of 2015 to right your fashion wrongs—or at least begin to strategize a new look for 2016. Here to help you on your quest to a more stylish you this coming year, we’ve compiled three trends worth trying in 2016.

Lingerie as Outerwear

2015 saw the rise of the “designer body” and the body con, transparent sheaths that revealed them. (Glimpse back at the 2015 Met Gala—from Beyoncé to Jennifer Lopez—and you’ll see what we mean.) Demure designs that still show off the body but leave more to the imagination are the way to go in 2016. Lingerie dresses, with satin panels and touches of lace, are easy and ladylike while still feeling a little risqué. For spring 2016, celeb-loving label Givenchy have elevated bedtime attire to something beautiful you’ll want to wear outside the bedroom. Givenchy, 102 NE 39th St, Miami, 305-576-6250

Technicolor Threads

When a rainbow-hued coat makes Kim Kardashian-West’s Christmas list, you know a trend has officially been set in motion. Hers was of the Saint Laurent variety—similar Technicolor (dream) coats comprised the label’s spring 2015 collection—but yours can be anything from Versace’s resort 2016 collections, which features all sorts of colorful jumpsuits and midriff-baring tops. To kick the black habit sooner, turn to Versace’s spring 2016 collection, replete with fluorescent animal prints and feather patterns. Versace, 186 NE 39th St, Units 116 & 216, Miami, 305-722-7100

Victorian Traditions

Somewhere between what we’d attribute to Downton Abbey and the chaste styles we typically associate with Victorian dressing is what you’ll want to try in 2016. Ruffles, broderie anglaise and neckties are just a few of the old-timey touches designers are including in their collections. Fendi, with its high-necklines and ruffles, fully embraces the trend and gives off major Victorian vibes. Fendi, 150 NE 40th St, Miami, 786-655-5400
