I have a confession to make. As a fashion enthusiast and lifestyle blogger, I often need some inspiration to keep me going. Many a times, it comes from following my favourite celebs and what they’ve been wearing. All said and done, they are the most accessible of all trendsetters – you simply need digital media for a peek into their style diaries.
So I keep track of celebrity trends and adopt some of their fashion to my personal styling. Not everything the stars wear can be pulled off by lesser mortals, but yes, there is much to learn from their incredible fashion statements. So here is some insight into the latest celebrity trends – read on to find out what your favourites have been wearing in 2016.
1. The Two-Piece Ensemble
Be it at the Coachella Music Festival, the prestigious red carpet or even casual outings, a lot of Hollywood A-listers have been spotted in the two-piece ensemble of a printed crop top and matching high-waisted skirt. Such outfits have a fun, flirty appeal and promise just the right amount of skin show. And the summer season is the ideal time to don on a two-piece ensemble; go ahead and dazzle the onlookers.
2. The Funky Flip Flops
Who said flip-flops are meant just for the beach? If celebrities can wear them to the supermarket, park or impromptu lunch, so can we. Off-late, novelty flip-flops with thick soles, fabrics such as velvet and fur, sequined detailing and so on, have been sported by numerous stars. Pair them with a pair of cut-off or jeggings for any casual outing.
3. The White Hats
Celebrities have been big on white hats this summer season. From sturdy straw hats to delicate woven ones, hats in all shapes and sizes with a white base have been captured by the shutterbugs very often this season. You too, could take inspiration and get yourself a cool white hat. The best part is, it would also make for a very useful accessory on sunny days, shading your pretty face from the harsh sun.
4. The Mirrored Sunglasses
It all started with Dior’s 2016 collection of mirrored sunglasses. While reflectors never really went out of fashion, with this leading fashion brand releasing a whole range with coloured mirror finish and numerous shapes and sizes, the glamour industry wasted no time. Every fashion bigwig is known to own a pair of mirrored shades. Maybe you could consider getting one too?
5. The Cropped Denims
Cropped jeans have been trending high this summer season. With their above-the-ankle tailoring and/or upturned edges, they add an edge to your informal attire. No wonder numerous celebs have been seen wearing cropped denims when out shopping or completing outdoor chores. And cropped denims are the perfect choice for when you want to flaunt your shoes or anklet.
6. The Statement Bag
This is not a “latest trend” per se, but, well, statement bags are common to most celebs’ outfits. From boxy duffel bags to semi-transparent “jelly carryalls”, there are many brilliant variants that different stars have worn. You need to find a statement bag that you can carry off with panache and you’re sure to look no less than a celebrity yourself!
