Another fashion filled year is almost coming to end. But before we completely conclude 2016 we´d like to look back on some of this year´s highlights. Catwalk trends, beauty experiments and streetstyle fads that defined 2016. Highlights of a year in style you at least have to go through one more time, before you move on to fresh plans and new adventures. Some fashion fun to enjoy the final countdown. Let´s recap 2016!

Here are 10 trends we loved in 2016.

10. Denim, bombers, bags; anything covered in patches (in the shape of stars, donuts, pizza´s, unicorns, avocado´s, lips) was sure to deliver a sensational, contemporary #ootd

4. Leopard prints turned into the chicest of prints thanks to designers like Dries van Noten, Givenchy and Prada. Roarr!

3. The puffer jacket (gone posh) in statement red (Drake style) or pastel pink. A hit item that started off as a gimmick, but eventually was here to stay.

2. The metallic pleated skirt (as seen at Lanvin and Gucci) preferably paired with some basic black loafers (see 1.)

1. No look was more on trend than Gucci’s granny look (pleated skirt, loafers, tied blouse, retro glasses, a Dionysus bag and a baret) and basically all things Gucci became best sellers in 2016.
