5 Additions to Make to Your Closet in 2016

This is a sponsored post.

So far, this year has brought with it a whole slew of new trends to try—and we’re only halfway through it! With so many chic and wearable styles available, it can be nearly impossible to decide which ones to add to your wardrobe. Supplement your collection with these five pieces that are sure to become staples this season.

The Choker Necklace

Once a must-have accessory of the ’90s, this trend is back in a big way for the current year. While the classic choker style tends to be a thin, black number that pairs well with anything, this season also offers necklaces that are jewel-encrusted, boldly hued, and metallic for a higher-level accessory.

The Mom Jeans

Mom jeans aren’t exactly known as being the most attractive bottoms out there, to say the least. But, it’s time to throw all those preconceived notions about this particular piece out the window, because the mom jean is trending for summer. As Today writes, the high-waisted style actually flatters the waist and the bum, contrary to popular belief. Wear with a button-down shirt tied at the waist to further accentuate your curves.

The Slide Sandal

Summer calls for a new twist on the classic sandal, and the slide silhouette certainly delivers. Equal parts practical and stylish, the slide sandal is casual enough to wear to the pool but can just as easily be thrown on for Friday night drinks with friends. The flat heel keeps you comfortable while luxe materials like leather, suede, and satin provide a hint of glam. Paste points out that slides are beyond your OG shower shoes—and even that is an understatement.

The Cold-Shoulder Neckline

It goes without saying, but shoulder-baring necklines are having a major moment. Whether you love the full off-the-shoulder style or a more subtle cut-out version, this trend embodies the flirty feel of the summer season. Fortunately for us, there is a wide range of cold-shoulder necklines to choose from, including blouses and dresses of all lengths and silhouettes.

The Slip Dress

In the year of boudoir dressing, the slip dress is a versatile essential for any wardrobe. For the ultimate transitional piece between seasons, choose a midi length in a solid and neutral hue, as seen in Lyst’s dress roundup. During cooler weather, wear with a chunky knit sweater or cardigan and booties. For spring and summer, wear solo or layer with a T-shirt and leather jacket for a grunge-inspired look.
