Plenty of Fish at NYFW

I’ve been green with envy while fabulous fashionistas have been “taking in” the shows at New York Fashion Week over the past several days. Living vicariously through Instagram, Twitter and street-style blogs has helped calm the fashion craving and given a little insight into what we can expect for spring and summer.
One trend that couldn’t be missed: the perfectly imperfect fishtail braid that made its way down the runway on every single Tory Burch model. The braids were tightly woven then fussed up a bit for a look that is part fresh from the farm and part fresh out of bed. In fact, with a little bedtime braiding you could probably wake up with this exact hair style.

Lucky magazine served up some great backstage shots via Instagram of the models getting braided and ready. I love the combination of intricate weaving and messy flyways shown here.

If you need a little brushing up for your next fishtail, check out this video tutorial from Lauren Conrad and the fabulous ones at The Beauty Department here. It takes a little practice keeping the sections in place as you go, but before you know it, you’ll have runway ready hair a la Tory Burch SS 2013!
