Start placing your bets ladies — what will Meghan Trainor be wearing to the 2016 Grammys? The songtress has snagged a nomination as Best New Artist this year, which means yet another chance to dazzle on-stage. And if history prevails, Trainor will once again capture hearts in her traditional menu of all things lace and sequins — unless there's a curveball thrown.
Trainor's Grammy nom comes at no surprise. At 21, most girls are navigating the troubled waters of college graduation and job hunting. Trainor, however, has racked up a Wikipedia page devoted solely for her awards and nominations — how's that for a resume? Previously, Trainor received two Grammy nominations for her hit "All About That Bass," so her foray into music awards show territory isn't exactly new.
However, let's talk sartorial business. At the 2015 Grammys, Trainor stunned in a majestic Galia Lahav number which has me thinking, what kind of dress could possibly upstage this masterpiece? The options are truly endless. Some like to gamble on William and Kate's royal baby names, others put their stake in classic horse-racing, and then there's people who just want to predict what Meghan Trainor will rock at the 2016 Grammys.
1. Lady In Lace
Meet my favorite Meghan Trainor ensemble. I can't get enough of this elegant gown — everything from the sheer panels to the intricate lace is ultra showstopping Grammys material. Perhaps Trainor will play it safe again this year and opt for a black lace combo. And in my dreams, it'll have boho '70s bell sleeves — because everything is better in bell sleeves.

2. All That Glitters
Nothing gets in between Trainor and her sequin situation. Her penchant for striking, glitzy patterns is especially evident on the red carpet, so there's a likely chance she may chose to travel the same route for the Grammys this year.

3. Get Skirty
In an evening where every other Hollywood starlet is dripping in dresses and gowns, Trainor rides against the flow with a statement metallic skirt. Much like her retro-tinged tunes, Trainor pairs her skirt with a collared blouse — an innocent, demure look that perfectly captures her girl power vibes. Who's to say Trainor will once again pull Statement Skirt Round Two? I certainly won't be complaining.

4. Feisty Print
Another potential contender? The little leopard dress. Trainor's already sported this wild print before, so the idea isn't completely off the charts.

5. Jack(et) Of All Trades
Hello, biker jacket season. One notable Trainor getup includes a hot pink moto jacket — and the more color, the better. This year's Grammys may inevitably bring us another rendition, perhaps in a pastel powder blue.

6. Sealed With A Kiss
There's no doubt that Meghan Trainor is crazy about the lip-print action. At the AMAs last year, she even had a lip clutch to boot, so the odds of lips making the wardrobe cut are naturally high.

7. Blue Steel
One does not have to be a faithful Meghan Trainor devotee to know of her love for all-black frocks. However, sometimes she likes to switch it up and incorporate vibrant hues — and lots of it. Perhaps this season at the Grammys will be Trainor's chance to step out looking like a million bucks in dreamy blues.
