23 Jun The A-List: The Top Winter Trends 2016
Winter is here and we have found the essentials to keep you looking fierce and staying snug this season. From make up, to clothes, shoes, accessories and hairstyles, we have everything you need to know about the current trends.
Over the Knee Boots
Over the knee boots are all the rage this winter! They look so chic with shorts or a dress and accentuate your legs while keeping them warm. You don’t have to be tall to pull off these statement boots, Kourtney Kardashian looks absolutely fabulous in them! To recreate her look, check out Mi Piaci and Overland for their impeccable range of boots.
Brows on Fleek
No outfit is complete without a pair of on-fleek brows. This season is all about embracing the slightly more wild brow – your face needs to keep warm too! Try using the Universal Brow Pencil from Billion Dollar Brows from the Best Sellers Kit, the built is spoolie is the perfect tool to craft the perfectly, imperfect arch.

Fluffy Drop Earrings
Fluffy earrings are really taking off as a statement jewelry piece to add some flare and fabulousness to an evening outfit, or a bit of pizzazz to your work day. They are currently available at Lovisa and many online shops in a range of colours, but are selling out quickly everywhere!
Over-Sized Wool Coat
The over-sized wool coat is a winter staple this year to stay stylish and warm during these cold months! We’ve found some of our favourites at Glassons and Topshop
Statement Matte Lips
Statement lips are a must-have this winter. Creating highly pigmented, long lasting and velvety matte lips can be difficult, but lucky for you Cailyn Cosmetics’ Pure Lust Extreme Matte Lip Tints is the answer to your prayers! Opting for a sultry darker chocolate or plum colour will be the perfect addition to any winter look. Actress, Lucy Hale, beautifully pulled off a dark red, wintery lip colour, which you can recreate with a shade like the Classicist from Cailyn.
The Knit Dress
The knit dress is something every woman needs in her wardrobe this winter. It is a simply stylish, yet warm staple piece that can be paired with different jackets, tights, lipsticks and accessories to create fresh, dynamic looks. Check out this cute navy number from Dotti – also available in other colours.
Double French Braids
Double French braids are the go-to hairstyle this season. Although it is sometimes hard to complete them seamlessly by yourself, get a friend over and practice on each other because this is a hairstyle you will want to perfect! To stop fly-aways we recommend using Schwarzkopf Styliste Ultime Satin Frizz Control Defrizz Cream and finishing the look with the Styliste Ultime Amino-Q Hair Spray, both available from all leading department stores, supermarkets and pharmacies.
Last but not least, the most recent trend to hit New Zealand comes in the form of chokers. They add a level of sophistication when paired with a classy outfit, with a touch of 90s charm – the perfect accessory for an evening out!
