Style Predictions 2016. Part 1

Now in its 5th year, the King & Allen style predictions have become as much of a January fixture as failed diets and feigned sobriety. Sometimes we get it right (we predicted waistcoats and slimmer trousers back in 2009), and sometimes we get it horribly wrong (2015’s floral explosion never quite happened!), but either way it’s always ...
