As we bid goodbye to yet another year, it is only natural to want to look back at it with fond memories. While 2016 may not have given us many happy memories in the world affairs department, fashion industry had a great time.

Every woman with an Instagram account was exposed to this trend and thought about trying it once at least. It got quite a few variations with black lacy ones to the ones with strings. Soon, the trend became synonymous with wannabe girls trying to look cool but too bad for the haters, women don’t care about their opinion.

As pretty as they may look, transparent heels can also be the most painful thing you ever wear on your feet. The shoes were made popular by Kylie Jenner, after which they were seen on almost every other fashion blogger.

Bardot tops

It doesn’t get more summer 2016 than this. Breezy Bardot tops ruled the season and looked pretty while they did so. Light, comfortable and fluffy, they were one of the biggest trends of the year but having been worn so many times, they may not crossover to summer 2017.

The micropleats

hey monday, please be good to me

Extremely feminine and still so chic. What’s not to love about micropleates? We fell for them when Priyanka Chopra wore a teal micropleated skirt to an episode of Good Morning America and tried to emulate her style in our own wardrobes.

Feeling too cold for a sleeveless top but think a t-shirt is just too drab? 2016 found the perfect solution to the problem with exposed shoulder tops. They were formal, fashionable and just so charming. But again, they have been worn to death by almost everyone. We are pretty sure we won’t see any more of them in the next year.
