As 2016 draws to a close, we take a look back at the top fashion trends of 2016. The spring/summer 2016 catwalks showcased romance, with designers favouring soft tailoring, romantic ruffles and pretty pleats. There was also a strong theme of 1990s nostalgia and references included nightgown-style slip dresses and choker necklaces. By the time AW16 fashion week came around, it was clear that ruffles were here to stay, and all four fashion week cities presented strong pleated looks. JW Anderson made a strong bid for the ‘It’ bag of 2016, with its striking Pierce shoulder bag – one of the most coveted and most photographed styles of the year.
