Beads, actual beads. Beads and bows and low ponytails – it’s all just so darn nostalgic. "Back to school hair" as Byrdie coined it, cropped up across various shows at Fashion Week. The effortless styles are easy to wear and even easier to pull together, so unlike the noughties, you won’t need dads help.
With that October chill in the air (somewhere), we’re already lathering on an extra layer of moisturiser. Drenched in skincare is exactly how I like to spend the winter months, so I'm all in favour of the glossy skin at Badgley Mischka's show. Serum, moisturiser, highlighter, and repeat. We can start you off on the healthy skin hype 👇Book facial
Yep, we saw heaps of models taking to the runway with sun kissed cheeks in tow – Christopher Kane, especially. If you’re born with the speckled goods (praise be), make sure to show ‘em off with a lighter makeup base, if not, no judgement for faking it – brow pencil is your best mate for this one.
Heaps of pastel palettes appeared in the beauty sphere of Fashion Week, with eyelids coated in peach (staying just within the border of how I wore eyeshadow aged 7). Peter Piletto's sorbet shades were a sneak peak of the colours we'll be sporting for the rest of the year. It'll cheer up the dreary winter months, for sure.
Not just for when you hop in the shower, or the morning after the night before… turns out, a roughed-up top knot is actually a stellar hairstyle for SS19 – dance with me. Scrape back your locks and hold in place with a clear elastic, pull baby hairs from the front and tendrils from the side, and you’re good to go. Easy.
Orbit nails, logo manis and painted flags, statement fingertips came in by the bucketload across the fashion weeks. It makes for a simple twist on your usual polish style (just opt for nail art on top of your gel mani) – but leave it to the pros, I promise your hand isn’t steady enough.Book nails
The (next season) Fashion Week trends we’re already wearing
SS19 Fashion Weeks exist to show just that – trends for next year’s spring/summer aesthetic. But, if the Oscar de la Renta catwalk makes me want to strut into the office wearing a low ponytail in October, you best believe I’ll be doing it (wild). So, because we don’t need any sort of excuse to rock next season’s trends in the present day, and because I really enjoy studying the shows and sorting my hair out, here are the 7 trends for next year, that you should start wearing now.

Pantone have called it, yet again; 2020’s colour of the year is *drumroll please* Classic Blue. The colour - which apparently instils calm and confidence (I’m listening) - has felt the love from fashion and interiors for a while now. And now it’s beauty’s turn. Let’s start at the top, shall we? Blue hair is bold, obviously, and it can be hard to nail the shade.
