The Hottest Fashion Trends for Fall and Winter 2016

November 1, 2016 • Lifestyle

As the days get chillier and winter is around the corner, we’ve got the hottest fashion trends for both men and women, so you can be sure to be cold in style this season.

For men, copper is the way to go, with a rich, deep, orangey-brown shade dominating the catwalks. There was also plenty of representation from dark greens, greys, blacks and navies, and a knitted polo shirt is becoming an increasingly popular way to stay warm without needing to dig into your sweater collection.

Mens outerwear is generally sticking to classic colours, but expect to see unique tailoring and designs, in a range of fabrics to draw the eye.


For women, high-shine metallics aren’t just to be brought out for New Year’s Eve, and they’re being seen through fall around the world. Splash out in a skirt with that liquid metal look, or keep it low-key with a few accessories.

Plaid Outerwear is so on-trend right now, with appearances on the runways of Rachel Zoe and Victoria Beckham, so if you need an upgrade from your typical black coat, this is a good way to have a statement piece in your closet.

Guess what else is back? Off-the-shoulder necklines. This trend isn’t going anywhere, and you can take it straight into the cooler weather with dark prints, rich jewel tones, long sleeves and your favourite ankle boots. Chokers are also back in a big way, so go for a plain black ribbon or update it with crystal and velvet details and take advantage of the slight Victorian vibe.

Men’s fashion is also seeing a revival of its own, with plaid sports coats a safe bet, and to mix it up, choose plaid up top and a contrasting pant  to stand out in fall.

Grey has been popular for menswear for a while now, and 2016 has continued this trend, expanding it with a number of different shades for winter and fall. Grey footwear, denim and structured menswear is going to be huge this season, so be sure to stock up on your favourite shade.

Both men and women are seeing puffy jackets come back, and this 90s trend has been seen on the runways of D&G, Burberry and more. Want to keep it subtle? Choose olive green, burgundy, or blue, or go for a big bold colours instead.

For women, over-the-knee boots are back, although they’re looking a little more chill matched with skinny jeans and a cute top, or you can dress them up with a hot suede pair and a miniskirt.

Stripes are still big for both men and women, and while they look cute on a sweater, choose a matching scarf to take it even further.

And for men, high-shine is the way to go. Silk shirts are an easy way to embrace this trend, although leather trousers or a bomber or parker is an excellent way to remain on-point this year.
