New York Fashion Week 2014

We’ve seen the incredible outfits worn to New York Fashion Week thanks to the many talented street style photographers that now rule the fashion world. It’s a topic that interests me but I always find myself asking, “why don’t you snap her nails?” or “where are the cool hairstyles?”. I questioned whether anyone who attends fashion ever did anything with their beauty look so I took it upon myself to go to New York Fashion Week and get the answers myself. This is the result ….. street style beauty.

I’m sure I’m not the first person to ever take a focus on street style beauty but it’s definitely lacking in the blog arena. Yes, the majority of the fashion crowd don’t brush their hair and they don’t really wear makeup but not all of them are like that. I discovered some gorgeous looks and some key trends from the most fashionable people. In the first post of this 3-part series I’m going to show you the cool hair colours and styles I saw at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week, New York.

Key Trends

  1. Colours – brights, pastels and multiple shades of one hue.
  2. Lobs – Everyone loves a long-bob!
  3. Updos – Braids, buns and intricate details to simple styles
  4. Messy – It’s cool amongst the fashion kids to purposefully have messy hair, whether it’s up or down, straight or wavy.
