Along with doling out the next big thing in fashion, this season’s Resort collections are also rolling in the hair trends that well all be sporting through summer ’14. Think ultra sleek styles and fun accessories (we’re looking at you hair chalk), all geared toward beating the summer heat and humidity. From Proenza Schouler to Vera Wang — the haute heavies are keeping it cool, classic and very, very chic. Here are the best ways to style summer hair for 2014.
The most classic of the Resort runway trends is the simple middle part — made particularly stylish on the Proenza Schouler runways. Spray a little serum through your hair. Then use a fine tooth comb and straighten hair down the middle. Easy, peasy.
The silky, low-set ponytail made another classic splash on tresses, particularly note-worthy on the Tibi runway. Start with a flat iron to create smooth, silky locks. Then simply pull hair away from your face into a sleek ponytail that sits at the nape of the neck. A few drops of serum will enhance shine and help keep any wispy strands from breaking free.
Not quite the full head of pastel-hued hair of last season, a streak of pink or purple hair chalk was likely the most whimsical of the season’s runway. Paired with the collection at Louis Vuitton, the look adds a touch of punk while still staying all-occassion appropriate. And it all washes away with a little water.
Our final contender for coolest hair style of summer 2014 is one we touched on as a possible to-do for the coming holiday: the headscarf. A surefire way to hide frizzy warm-weather strands, a long skinny scarf wrapped around the crown of the head will keep the crown of your head humidity resistant while your lower strands float free.
Out of the gallery and onto your back, art-inspired prints are threatening to take over your wardrobe this season, starting with a strong showing at plenty o’ spring ’14 runway shows — Chanel, Prada, Celine… *sigh. Equal parts edgy and elegant, bold brushstrokes and painted patterns are the prints to play with, dressing up shoes, shifts, handbags, skirts and blouses. Art class is back in session and the best-dressed canvas this summer should be you.read more

You’ve likely been out scouring the racks for this summer’s BFB (Best Fitting Bikini), so consider today’s news bite something to mark your calenders for. Proenza Schouler has announced that they will be adding a swimwear line to their Cruise 2015 collection.
The label only released a single photo, but from the looks of things, the designs will emulate the sophistication of the haute brands other goods. Taking inspiration from variations on two different themes — the first is inspired by surf and skate culture featuring archival prints in bright colors, and the second, inspired by past runway collections, in a palette of black, white and pastels — the collection will include 20 different styles, including bikinis, one-pieces, and pareos.. This all is likely to add up to plenty of options from fun to functional, from classic to chic.

All you beach babies pining for summer casual style can breath a sigh of relief; the long-awaited MAC Proenza Schouler cosmetics collection is finally here.
We’ll admit the idea is unusual in its surf-infused inspiration, as makeup doesn’t typically translate to a frolic in the sea—but this pairing is a sure-fire way to nail sand-and-sea beauty. Breaking from their signature black-and-white palette, designers Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez have created a very pretty collection of neutral/pink lipsticks, liners, nail polish and ombré blushes, peppered with a few choice nighttime elements like an orange-red lipstick called Mangrove, an electric peony lipstick called Dynamo, and a bloom-inspired red-pink nail lacquer called Bougainvillea. There’s even a collection of brushes with holographic tie-dyed handles to match the makeups whimsical packaging to get you in the mood. The limited-edition collection is set to be priced from $18-$39 and is poised to appear briefly on store shelves from April 24th through May 22. Set your calendars folks, the MAC + Proenza Schouler collection is promising to be makeup’s must-have answer to the song of summer.
Wallflowers will have a heck of a time getting any attention this season, as metallics march their way into the wardrobes of tres chic “it” girls like Kate Bosworth, Cara Delevingne, Alexa Chung, and Kate Moss — and then steadily make their way into everyone else’s closets.
