NYFW SS16 Day 7: Side-parted tresses and heavily-rimmed eyes

A cooler spring

We always welcome ironic twists to seasonal looks, such as day seven's overly side-parted locks and darker eye-and-lip combos paired with floral accessories

Seven days into New York Fashion Week SS16 and we're still not getting bored of a few beauty and hair trends seen on the runway. In particular, the extreme side-parted hairstyles spotted in different variations—at Michael Kors (messy, side-swept bangs with half-up dos), DKNY (sleeker tresses tucked behind the ears) and Bibhu Mohapatra (a modernised version of the Victory roll).

Anna Sui's kohl-rimmed eyes and dark vampy lips proved to be an ironic twist to a spring/summer show, yet it boded surprisingly well with elaborate flower crowns and hairpieces. Another designer who went for the heavily-smudged lower lash line look was Greg Lauren, drawing attention to the blue-lined peepers especially with purposefully tilted wide-brimmed hats.
