Trends transform from runway to everyday
April 9, 2014
The 2014 Spring/Summer collections featured many glamorous, inventive and enviable beauty looks. Many of these hair and makeup styles are difficult to sport for an everyday look. Instead of mimicking the trends exactly, try these wearable, translated looks for spring.
Gold Hair Accessories
In the Lela Rose Spring/Summer 2014 collection, models looked like sun goddesses with their gilded updo hair adorned with shimmering gold flakes. To recreate this look, try wearing sparkly headbands and hair ties or golden hair clips and pins. Anthropologie’s various hair accessories, such as the Bijoux Bobby Set ($24), Covalence Hair Tie ($8) or Illumine Headband ($32), can help you achieve this look.
Sleek and Straight Locks
Get ready to break out the flat iron to try out this runway beauty look. All the models at the Chloé Spring/Summer 2014 show rocked super-straight hair to top off their mod and edgy looks. For an off-the-runway look, simply straighten out your locks and give your hair a modest side or middle part.
Black Bold Bands
Possibly the easiest trend to replicate off the runway, bold black headbands were used by designers like Vera Wang and Victoria Beckham to give their models a sleek and polished look for their Spring/Summer collections. Stores like American Apparel sell similar black headbands, like the Cotton Spandex Jersey Headband ($5).
Orange was definitely the new black for 2014 Spring/Summer runway collections. From Prabal Gurung and DKNY to rag & bone and Altuzarra, many models wore bold orange lipstick. Usually paired with simple eye makeup, this beauty look is easy to incorporate in your daily style off the runway.
Another beauty trend that can be effortlessly recreated is the minimalist-makeup look, which was seen at multiple runway shows this year. Designers such as Alexander Wang and Michael Kors created chic, raw-beauty looks that can be worn by anyone who likes this understated trend.
Perhaps the most familiar trend seen on the runway for 2014 Spring/Summer collections was bold black eyeliner. At Stella McCartney, Rodarte and Missoni models were seen sporting feline-like black liner, a striking and daring makeup trend that can be re-worked easily.
