2016; it’s been a rollercoaster year for Fashion too; Vetement’s hit peak hype, the see-now-buy-now model came into play and Kanye dyed his hair blonde and hung out with Trump- we assume they weren’t discussing his new Yeezy collection? Luckily, street-style remained consistent and continued to inspire – here’s our pick of our favourite styles of the year.
Street style superstar Veronika Heilbrunner came up smelling of roses in London, dressed head toe in Christopher Kane. Grandad cardigans have never looked so good.
This lady braved New York’s 35degree heat in PVC trousers. That’s all I have to say.
Vetements hit peak-demand this season with its cult-like street-cool influence driving the sales sports-hoodies and re-worked denim through the roof. This girl shows us how to rock the head to toe look.
Historical references swept the Runways throughout 2016. This lady shows us how to make it current. Exaggerated sleeves, check. Corset layering, check. Wide leg pants, check. Boom.
Leandra Medine, the master of Man Repelling rules one of the must-have items of this year; the slip. Sheer layers and mini-ruffles tick the trend boxes for this seasons detailing.
This look is about 60% Pat Butcher, 40% Audrey Hepburn and I can’t get enough of it.
*Sighs*. Ah, Yasmin. Kills it every time. Style.com’s new Fashion Director looking on-point in an asymmetric two-piece and yellow-gold space boots.
Pink has become a big deal this year, hitting the runways especially hard during the SS17 season. Linda Tol works it into her signature laid-back styling for the win.
I may be biased but London styling rules supreme. I challenge you to find a stronger puffa-jacket game. This Marques Almedia one is firmly on my sales wish-list.
