4 Trends To Invest In Before 2016...

By Lucy Harbron - 19:46

There's been some big big trends this year and it looks like some of them are set to sail on into 2016 with us. So here's 4 things I think you should invest in before the new year (if you haven't already)

Mom jeans have been a big trend for a long long time now but they're still going strong and they're still an absolute essential for me. Since buying some mom jeans late 2014 I've struggled to wear anything else as I love them so much! They're so easy to style and such a versatile piece which looks good with everything from crop tops and vest tops to big baggy jumpers and oversized coats. Easily one of my best investments and if you haven't already got yourself a pair, go get some!

If the baggy style isn't really your thing, take a look at ASOS' slim mom jeans which have the classic high waist mom jeans style, but with a skinny jean leg. So if you prefer a simpler shape but still want to get a vintage kinda vibe, definitely take a look on ASOS. 

2015 was the year of the highlighter as not only did contouring make its way into everyday make-up routines, but also strobing became a massive, totally beautiful make-up trend. Therefore, before you welcome in the new year, make sure you have a darn good highlighter at hand! My all time fave is MUA's Undress Your Skin highlighting powder, it's the prettiest iridescent pinky/nude powder that instantly adds lifts the complexion and brings out your cheekbones (and it's only £3!) However if you want to try your hand at some full-force strobing in 2016, try a cream or a liquid highlighter like Topshop's Glow Pot or collection's new Speedy Highlighter stick. Glowing dewy skin looks like its here to stay, but remember beautiful skin starts with good skin care!

The 70s trend was HUGE this year and trend forecasters say it's here for the long run. So stock up on some 70s inspired shapes and textures- A-line skirts, suede, paisley and floral prints, boho shirts, flares and high boots. I love love love this trend and I'm so happy it's joining us all in 2016, hurray for more time to channel my inner Stevie Nicks and Joni Mitchell!

My dungarees are easily my favourite thing I've bought this year, and it seems like a lot of people feel the same. Long denim dungarees are a trend that seems to have come out of no where and blown up as now I see them all over instagram and blogs. My fave thing about this trend is that it's unisex and loads of boys are rocking dungarees as well so get your brothers/boyfriends/dads involved! They're surprisingly simple to style ever and move so easily through the seasons as you can layer t-shirts or jumpers under, so I think some long denim dungarees are the perfect investment for the year to come. If you're after some long dungarees, Topshop have loads in a variety of shapes and colours. 

What trends do you hope carry on into the new year?
