1. Orange Lips
Seen At: Rag & Bone, DSquared, Prabal Gurung
Why It Works: Reddish orange lipstick brightens up the face and makes the eyes twinkle. To balance the rest of the face, consider a shimmery highlighter.
2. Windswept Updos
Seen At: Michael Kors, Tom Ford, Peter Som
Why It Works: The worse your hair starts in the morning, the more it lends itself to one of these unkempt, haphazard ‘dos. Just pin, twist, tuck, and forget about it.
3. Au Naturale
Seen At: Chloe, Isabel Marant, Alexander Wang
Why It Works: Because clean skin, groomed brows, and lips that are actually the color of lips never, ever go out of style.
4. Rumpled Braids
Seen At: AlbertaFerretti, Rachel Zoe, Giles
Why It Works: Braids only look prim when they’re created with stick-straight, American Girl doll strands. Otherwise, they’re edgy, romantic, and still straight-up simple.
5. Pastel Eyes
Seen At: Badgley Mischka, Burberry, Prada
Why It Works: Colorful shadow looks sophisticated, not cheesy, when it falls on the softer side of saturation.
6. Mixed Textures
Seen At: Balenciaga, Salvatore Ferragamo, Max Mara
Why It Works: Not all of us were bold enough to embrace the full-on
wet look of a few seasons back. But this style, with dampened roots
and matte ends, is popping up on red carpets everywhere. Also? It’s a
damn good way to hide second or third day strands.
