The top fashion trends of 2016
Every major trend we obsessed over this year.
The queen of athleisure, aka gym-wear for everywhere but the gym, was definitely Bella Hadid.
This year the bodysuit was the easy outfit saver we all relied on.
You weren’t cool unless you rocked bomber this year. Sarah Snyder, Kourtney Kardashian and Hailey Baldwin show us how it’s done on Instagram. Bonus points for satin.
Kim Kardashian’s favourite accessory also made a major impact on the spring 2017 runways. Expect this waist-defining trend to carry into the new year.
Faux Fur Jackets
Whether in sunny LA or icy Canada, super fluffy faux fur coats were spotted on every celebrity this year.

The stars were all about amping up their going-out looks with edgy fishnets.
The new way to wear your jacket
This was the styling trick of the year.
Everything is cuter when it’s mini-sized.
This was one of the most popular trends of the year. The best part? It looks good in any colour, on literally everyone. According to stats from Lyst, the velvet bootie was one of the most sought-after shoes of the year.
It’s safe to say we got pretty experimental when it came to boots in 2016. These thigh-high versions are an outfit staple at this point.
Fashion embraced it’s feminine side this year, with pink being the standout hue. Online retail platform Lyst reported a 78% rise in searches for the hue.
Vetements & Yeezy paved the way for this super popular ankle-hugging boot silhouette.
2016 was all about showing off the shoulders.
The ripped, reworked, ragged edged jeans from Vetements served as inspiration for a whole new denim look.
