Among the most notable trends seen on the Spring/Summer 2015 runways was an unmistakable ode to the ’70s, leaving gals like Rachel Zoe collectively squealing with glee. Bohemian influences were all abound, perfectly accentuated by stick-straight, super-long locks and bare faces reminiscent of Woodstock. The golden era of chopped-off hairstyles will be long gone come spring time as the fashion crowd is eager to embrace new lengths that are the epitome of femininity.
Also on the horizon for hair come summer time? Fuss-free is the way to be. Design houses from Dior to Chanel sent models marching down the runway with air-dried hair that looked more sophisticated than sloppy. This news may be music to many a lazy girl’s ear as even the most high-maintenance of beauty lovers adore a shortcut here and there. If that weren’t enough, labels like Carven and Miu Miu showcased wet, slicked back hair that was both effortless and contrived at once. Rock this daring look alongside minimalist pieces for a high-fashion look fit for the fiercest runways.
No other makeup contributes to an air of mystery quite like a pitch black eyeliner. This one little beauty product holds a world of capability, ranging from the ultra-mysterious to irresistible ‘60s mod. From the classically seductive cat-eye to a host of gorgeous geometric shapes, it’s all about the eyes when it comes to looking fabulous for next year’s warm weather months. You can also take the road less traveled and opt for a gorgeous sky blue a'la Fendi Spring 2015 runway. While the models rocked leather strips like pros, a liquid or pencil version will do just fine.
Glamour girls have long held an affinity for gold, and there was plenty to be had on the Spring/Summer runways. Ideal for an instant dose of luxury, splashes appeared on the runways of labels such as Dries Van Noten, Valentino and Lanvin. Ever the shade to make a statement, gold accents exude optimal glam. Stock up on everything from gold eye liner to gilded headbands to be equipped with the latest summer beauty trends all day everyday.
Winter time is prime for sporting a range of dark, edgy manicures, but nail care will be all about understated simplicity for spring. Always-reliable red will ever be in style, but it’s muted shades like beiges and milky whites that are ideal for crisp, clean spring and summertime looks. Keep nails short and sweet to remain perfect on-trend or go out on a limb by opting for a slightly longer oval shape. Arm yourself with these guaranteed crowd-pleasers to blow the beauty game out of the water this season, utilizing the hottest summer beauty trends to form endless fabulous looks.
