Spin Cycle: Tie-Dye Emerges as Resort’s Runaway Trend

-------

now-trending-faustoThis August marks the 45th anniversary of Woodstock. Tie-dyed T-shirts have remained a mainstay for jam-band fans and festivalgoers ever since. But the Resort ’15 collections are shaking the psychedelic swirls from their hippie-dippy connotations. Designers including Michael Kors, Fausto Puglisi, and Burberry Prorsum’s Christopher Bailey gave dip-dyed looks a sophisticated rinse-and-spin—Kors’ wisteria leather bell-bottoms are already at the top of editors’ wish lists. At Bottega Veneta, Tomas Maier experimented with bleach effects on long T-shirt dresses, while Gucci’s Frida Giannini showed a cool, faded cable-knit pullover and matching stonewashed jeans. Even Alexander Wang gave the emerging trend his stamp of approval, proposing tie-dye as the downtown alternative to camouflage.

Here, a slideshow of our favorite new tie-dyed looks.

Pencil Skirts, Polka Dots, and More: This Week’s Best Looks, According to You

-------

look of the dayWe’re in full-on Resort mode here at Style.com. The best way to keep track of the season’s must-try trends? Our Look of the Day poll, of course. On Monday, we were loving the foolproof combination of a crisp button-down and pencil skirt. The winning look, a sheer blouse and paillette-covered skirt from Burberry Prorsum, was anything but basic. Riley Keough even sported a button-down and jacquard skirt on the Cannes red carpet. It was a refreshing alternative to the festival’s bevy of ball gowns. Next up: On Tuesday, we made a case for straw hats—and not just for the beach. Tomas Maier’s winner consisted of cropped jeans, a loose sweater, and a black floppy hat fit for the streets of New York. The look was chic, simple, and supremely wearable. As the week went on, we played favorites with high-slit skirts (like Joan Smalls’ stunning Prabal Gurung number at the CFDAs); butter-soft suede; and playful, retro polka dots.

Shop the Look: The New Pastels

Shop the Look

Until recently, everyone was always a bit wary of pastels. Were they overly sweet? Or even acceptable over the age of 15? And how were you expected to wear multiple shades without looking like an Easter egg? But thanks to the recent surge of what we like to call “modern pastels”—the same baby pinks, pale yellows, and icy blues but on the most basic of shapes—the hues are coming into their own. The key is to look for uncomplicated pieces that let the color make the statement (bonus points for a cool metallic or patent finish). Mixing lavender with mint green never looked fresher.

Making the Cut: A Look at Our Top Ten New Models List, and a Shout-Out to the Runners-Up

-------

Model Runner Ups

Believe it or not, there’s quite a bit of number crunching that goes into creating our top ten new models list. Each season, we go through the crop of fresh faces and break down each girl’s show list. We consider the quantity and quality of shows she walked and factor in exclusive appearances (yes, going the selective route can still pay off) as well as all-around buzz. One part of the equation that requires a bit more deliberation is deciding just who qualifies as “new.” Take Lexi Boling, for example. Technically, it was the Chicago-born catwalker’s sophomore season; she did Alexander Wang and several big shows in Paris during Spring ’14. But she didn’t pop up in all four cities last September and we couldn’t deny the impact she made this season, so we included her in our Fall ’14 roundup. On the other hand, someone who didn’t make the cut because we felt she had a tad too much experience was icy blond Nastya Sten. With sixty-three Fall shows under her belt, the Russian model was the most in-demand girl of the entire season. Meanwhile, we’re positively smitten with Natalie Westling’s flame-red hair and tomboyish appeal, but she simply didn’t stomp enough catwalks to qualify as a top newcomer. But that’s not to say that these ladies don’t deserve shout-outs. Below, we bring you the stats for Sten, Westling, and more noteworthy runners-up for Style.com’s top ten new models list.

Shop the Look: Heart’s Desire

-------

Heart's DesireValentine’s Day gets a bad rap, however it’s not the worst excuse to wear pink and red. But who says you can only wear V-Day’s palette and prints once a year? Burberry Prorsum’s Fall ’13 collection proved heart motifs have real staying power, especially when shown on a luxe camel trench or oxblood sweater. Paired with a patent leather pencil skirt, the result is far from cutesy—in fact, it’s even a little sexy. Of course, throwing in a candy-shaped clutch or glittery heels never hurt anyone—we’re all for having a little sartorial fun.
