Pure and simple: how to get a fresh look for summer
Not the song, but the look, with spring and summer gradually approaching you’re probably frantic as to what you should be preparing for (don’t worry, we are too), but have no fear as simplicity is key. Less is more, neutral, nude, etc. Put the smokey eye down and leave the red lips for now, enjoy the sun, sea and sand – with a little help..
Taking inspiration from Olivia Palermo, by putting your hair in a neat bun it looks carefree but still precise. Allowing the sun to define your natural bone structure, this hairstyle is for the brave, but will instantly achieve your carefree summer look.
Poppy Delevingne has mastered the eau de natural make-up, with a light and dewy covering of foundation, simple bronzer and nude eyes with eyeliner and mascara. The simplicity of this look will still make an impact, as you’re making a statement from not making a statement. Clever we know.
Following on from the S/S 2014 nails trends set by Holly Fulton (as pictured), Tom Ford, Temperley, Matthew Williamson, and JINsoon For Vera Wang, nude is in. Either just prep your nails with a conditioning layer and let their “natural” shape do the work or put a nude coat of nail polish on, either way you’ll be achieving the ultimate neutral look.
With jewellery you’re permitted to be a bit more “out there”, with this S/S 2014 collection from Gianfranco Ferré & Zelia Horsley, it keeps the grey so the base is natural, but the embellishment upon the pieces catch the light, providing a spectrum of colour that will lighten up your already gleaming look.
So this summer, be ahead of the game and get simple quick.
