How to Style Your 2016 Fashion Trends
Based on the U.S. Navy’s double-breasted blue coat, the reefer jacket is back for 2016. Tied closely to the popular military trend, H&M have released their own version of this classic coat; this high neck navy version. Pair with leather effect leggings and bag to give this regimental look a new bad girl edge. Finish this look with these around two-tone sunglasses (because they aren’t just for summer).
Runway Inspiration: Chloé, Nina Ricci and Michael Kors.
H&M: jacket £49.99 / faux leather leggings £19.99 / jumper £19.99/ clutch bag £12 / boots £29.99/ earrings £5.99 / powder blusher £6.99
Paris style classic, Breton stripes are hot on trend again. This season will see different variations of the thickness of stripes and mixes of colour. Keep this look simple and classic by pairing it with these Dorothy Perkins herringbone trousers and roll bar tote bag. For winter outings add these quilted boots and suede jacket to keep you warm.
Runway Inspiration: Saint Laurent, Isabel Marant and Sonia Rykiel.

Eyelets will continue to feature heavily into the New Year as they did during the festive season. ‘Rivets’ dominated the runways as a nod to the galactic trend that arose surrounding the release of Star Wars.
