2015 RECAP SERIES

#OSGRecap: Our Top 15 Fashion Trends From 2015

Yes, the year is coming to an end which is both happy and sad, but hey, we have to  move forward!!! So, I have put together a short list( with pictures) of some fashion trends that crossed our radar in 2015… Some were hot, some not, some were not then they became hot and the other way round too… These trends are strictly my opinion and I would love to hear yours. Which of them would you love to see come back in 2016… I vote for the Cropped top without belly button and just like one line of skin showing…

Here is the first from our recap series – on the top fashion trends to hit the streets, rock the red carpets and shows from 2015… Enjoy!!!

Cropped Sets:

After Kerry Washington came with her belly to the Oscars in 2014 , this trend just had to come back into 2015. It came back revamped as we saw a lot less skin compared to the offensive belly button fiasco it came with in 2014… Stars were not left out as cropped tops or two pieces were seen on various red carpets.

Ripped Jeans:

aka Tear-tear jenas and me and my friends call them… It started out as a no for me and when i got to see really cool ones that is less ratchet, I started liking them… i still don’t have a pair but I hope 2016 will bring this in because my February pay should be able to afford me some.. FYI Christmas gifts are allowed…

From Bowlers to Fedoras and Fascinators, We were totally on our A-Game this year… Our weather sef agrees with it now and it’s especially good for those days that you can’t seem to find your hair comb… don’t say I told you that.

Dipped Hems:

This was an all-time favorite of 2015 and pictures don’t seem to do justice to this beautiful piece of clothing…. Whether you rock it as a dress, a skirt, a shirt or bedsheet sef…. You really can’t go wrong on this… Trust me!!!

Luxurious Fabrics:

For Owambes, it looks like they actually phased out Ankara designs and we that that’s what we can afford.. we say God will win in the end, Ankara will come back!!! Beautiful, beautiful designs trended for this luxurious fabrics like lace, voile and all those others that i can’t remember their names… Quick question, what do you do to those ones that you don’t wear again after spending like #35,00 on the fabric and sowing…

Dresses/Skirts on Sneakers;

I used to think this was weird but 2015 thought us a big lesson, you can actually rock your work out shoes with your dresses and skirts… Look out for out this next year.. You might even see it at a dinner sef.

Statement Shoes:

Imagine wearing a watermelon or a butterfly on your feet!!! Express yourself!!! This struck big on the red carpets in 2015 and we hope to see more in 2016….

Skater Skirts/Midi A-Line skirts:

Originally brought on as a vintage especially by Temi DollFace, it has transcended the retro look and has become a more or less modern trend as seen by our fashion favs here…
