2016 workwear trends
As you begin a new year in the office, make a statement with a few updates to your wardrobe. This year, you don’t have to leave your fashion at the office door.

1. Paperbag waists:
Forget belts, zippers and buttons. The big waist style for 2016 is the paperbag waist, a baggier cinch often tied off with a bow. Pair these with a cropped, fitted sweater or short blazer for a hip spin on the boring, ol’ black work pants.
Find great paper bag jogger pants at Bebe. Dress them up with heels, pearls, a blazer or button-down tucked in. Paper Bag Jogger Pants, $99 (plus Cash Back), Bebe.com
2. Marled Knits:
While the weather is still chilly, take advantage of this new spin on knitwear, with a multi-color “marled” print. No need to limit these knits to sweaters. Pick up a marled knit sweater dress, pair it with knit tights and closed-toe shoes, and you’ve got a totally comfy but also work-casual option that’s also fashion-forward.

3. Fringe, tastefully done:
Fringe continues to be huge as we enter 2016, but keep it work-appropriate with more understated options. Consider shorter fringe and plain black colors as an accessory, not the main star of your outfit.
A great way to add some fringe to your work attire is in a jacket, like the Draped Fringe Trim Coat from Bloomingdale’s, on sale now for $204. This asymmetrical jacket works because the front edge is fringed, but toned down with wool material, a large collar and faux leather buckle closure.
