Free WordPress Themes: December 2015

December was a big month for the WordPress world: we got a new version of WordPress, updated, and a new Twenty Sixteen default theme, which I have omitted from this roundup, though you can find a detailed review of it here.

It was also a big month for themes, and I have found the best free ones. Let’s take a look.


Willow is a simple child theme of Twenty Sixteen, with the major stylistic change being that it showcases content in a single column layout, rather than two columns.




Amethyst is a simple and fully responsive WordPress theme based on the Foundation framework by ZURB.



MH Edition Lite

MH Edition Lite is meant for magazine sites. It is fully responsive, translation ready, and comes with custom widgets. It also has a Pro version with additional features.

Briar is fully responsive, minimal, and translation ready. This WordPress theme is ideally meant for blogs that feature long-form content, as it looks best with a single column layout, though you can ad an optional sidebar.




As the name suggests, Bloga is a WordPress theme meant for personal blogs. It is responsive, offers a content-centric layout, and supports post formats.

Cosimo is a free WordPress theme meant for portfolio and blog sites. It is responsive, supports multiple post formats, and features a grid-like layout. Also, Cosimo has a Pro version that comes with additional features.
