Fashion week is finally over, and I say finally because man oh man has this been a chilly week. Never in my life have I experienced biting cold like this, and I’m from Sweden?! My trick to getting through these freezing couple of days has been layers and layers of cashmere and Uniqlo heat tech thermals. Well that, and Uber.
On the second day of fashion week I wore these insanely cool, cropped, patchwork culottes made from recycled workwear fabric. I love the contrast of the camel coat against the various shades of blue, but going sock less was definitely not a wise choice as the tone of my poor ankles pretty much matched my pants by the end of the day. Oh the things we do for fashion..
When it comes to styling my hair in the morning, I like to keep things quick, effortless and under 5 minutes. So, when the models strutted down the runway sporting these perfectly imperfect, low-slung ponytails at the Michael Kors show yesterday, I was intrigued.
According to hairstylist Orlando Pita, the models were instructed to wash their hair the night before the show and sleep with it slightly damp to create a natural, fresh out of bed feel. In the morning, just pull some tousled strands into a loose ponytail and you’re good to go. Sounds low-maintenance enough for me!
