For me, a new year isn’t just a new year. Amongst many other things, it brings new goals, new loves, new opportunities and of course, new fashion.

As the saying goes: out with the old and in with the new. So, it’s time to give your decaying AW15 wardrobe a spring clean and look to the fashion future.

Here are a few key fashion trends from the SS16 catwalks, paired with pieces from the high street, to give you a sprinkling of inspiration.

 

It’s All About The Shoulders

There’s something elegant yet rather sexy about getting your shoulders out! I loved this trend in 2015 and I will love it in 2016 too. It’s playful, feminine and effortless without the risk of ever showing too much skin. There’s so many different cuts to choose from, you can work this look all year round: minimal cut-out designs with high necklines, designs to show off that wonderful décolletage, completely off-the-shoulder numbers… The choice is yours. It’s a trend that works for everyone, whatever shape or size. (I, for one, have never heard of someone being self-conscious about their shoulders)… So, embrace what you love about your body and celebrate it. It’s time to give everyone the cold shoulder.

1. Behati Off The Shoulder Jumper In Knit Rib Grey,    £35 Motel Rocks

2. Pins & Needles Cold Shoulder Solid Wrap Dress,    £52 Urban Outfitters

3. Khaki Cold Shoulder T-Shirt,     £30 River Island

 

Romantic Ruffles

Femininity is on form this year and ruffles are set to become a key detail trend, as the SS16 catwalk showed us. But don’t dismiss this trend for seeming too girly, frilly and flouncy (you are not a 5 year old girl anymore), ruffles come in all shapes and sizes. As you can see from my high street edit, I prefer a minimal, structured ruffle that adds delicacy to a look – but feel free to go all out and embrace the romance trend with a bit of all-over ruffle drama! Either way, I guarantee you will look way more fashionista than frill-zilla.

1. Ruffle Mini Shift Dress,    £35 ASOS

2. Floral Ruffle Tee,    £34 Topshop

3. Metallic Trim Ruffle Top,    £22 Next

 

Bedroom Antics

The 90’s satin slip dress is back and looking slinkier than ever. With underwear as outerwear working as a lead concept, the iconic slip dress is the perfect mix of daring, effortless and sexy. Silky material and thin strap detailing will ensure all eyes are on you! If you feel a bit exposed, slips lend themselves well to layering, so don’t rule out this lustful trend on colder days. For an everyday look, team with chunky boots and channel your inner grunge. For a gorgeous party look, pair with dainty heels and simple jewellery.

1. Printed Strappy Cami,    £28 Topshop

2. Tiffany Slip Dress,    £35 Motel Rocks

3. Goldie Satin Slinky Cami Dress,   £36 ASOS
