The Best Street-Style Trends Of 2016
The street-style set hit a playful stride this year, triggering endless outfit inspiration we’re still mining daily. The ’90s ruled—whether via cool head-to-toe sport (think designers Vetements and Off-White), silky boudoir separates or voluminous silhouettes from blouson sleeves to wide legs—with the fashion pack demonstrating an irrefutable sense of fun at every turn. Here, seven trends we’re rocking now and into the new year. Shop our picks ahead.
Cult brand Vetements and newcomer Off-White set an elevated sporty tone with hoodies, sweats and T-shirts. Track pants and sneakers were also major.
Silhouettes were big for 2016, literally. From oversize shirting and extra-long cuffs to ultra-wide legs and floor-sweeping toppers.
The waist saw major play via cinched styling and inventive layering, accomplished through corsets, bralettes and full-sized belts.
Like, all the things. From Dionysus bags to double-G belts to logo-emblazoned ready-to-wear, the Italian label reigned, a celebration of Alessandro Michele's signature eccentricity.
'90s-style washes and remixed treatments were distinctly 2016. And lest we forget, denim jackets were the topper du jour, worn oversize or off the shoulder.
