Rocking Your Statement Pieces
A load of 2015-2016 fashion trend has come to be a part of our daily outfit choices, which is what made this year’s winter collection even more fun and interesting. Make a statement this winter by checking out our narrowed down list of the most stunning and wearable winter trend for 2016-2017 for you.
Blanket Wrap Scarf
Opt for statement scarves that pop and the bigger the scarf, the better. Wear your blanket scarf as a cape then drape it over one shoulder to look super chic, loop it around you neck as you will an infinity scarf. One way of styling it up would be with using an accessory, like a fur vest, or wearing it as a poncho. Whichever way, blanket wrap scarves are one staple yet trendy statement piece you can own this winter.
The coolest 90s fashion #TBT to ever grace us this year was velvet! This luxe fabric has been spotted on the runway this year from pumps, thigh-high boots, to coats, jackets, and pants in glorious bright hues. It could be the holidays coming up but we’re giving this trend a little bit more love this year. Own something a little plush this winter and rock it like it’s hot. We suggest wearing it with something glitzy like a metallic top or accessorize to make the velvet pop.
Leather Jacket Forever
No one will ever get over leather jackets. If we could, we’ll wear it year-long. Lucky for us, the best season to wear them is right here. Instead of a black leather jacket, try rocking it in wine, lush green, caramel, with fur trimming. Check out Sally LaPointe. Alexander McQueen, Altuzarra, Osman, Prada for this season’s trendy leather jackets.
Warm Tones for Statement Coats
The understated classic and timeless winter pieces are always the trench coat and yet it’s the most important piece in your winter wardrobe. Up your winter styling game with rose gold paired with classic gold trimmings. Mixing up warm tones for winter and pair it with this year’s fashionable colors and fabrics.
Dash of Drama in Details
As seen in this year’s fall/winter collection, embroidery and lace are still a part of the chilly season. Keep layering interesting by owning gorgeous lace dresses, embroidered jumpers and turtlenecks and opt for ones that have a dash of drama. Wear it over masculine pants or extra long coats. Whatever you do, these statement styles are a winner on its own.
