Shop The NYFW Trend: 13 Ways To Get Your Gingham On

Gingham was a big component in Diane Von Furstenberg’s NYFW runway show this week, and while her designs won’t be available until spring 2015, there’s no reason why you can’t rock the hell out of some gingham now. Here are 13 pieces to start with…

The Best Of NYFW: Diane Von Furstenburg Goes Gaga For Gingham & Colorful Accents

When I think of gingham, I envision picnic blankets and pizza parlor tablecloths and 1950s’ school girls — I don’t think of ass-kicking lady bosses with six-figure salaries and about as many boytoys. But that is exactly what the gingham — accented with splashes of bright colors and island-perfect prints — at Diane Von Furstenberg’s spring/summer 2015 runway show at New York Fashion Week conveyed.

Sorry, But There’s No Age Limit To Going Topless

No Age Limit On Top Less

Fashion mogul Diane von Furstenberg told NYMag.com’s The Cut that women over a certain age should not go sans shirt. The site asked what she thought about Instagram’s policy on female nudity, which has been debated heavily lately after Scout Willis went topless in New York to protest the app’s banning of female breasts.

Fashion Week Poll: Wanna Get Wild?

Okay, it’s official. Diane von Furstenberg has had the very first NYFW collection where I’ve loved EVERY single piece.

Maybe it’s because I’m super into animal prints right now or because the radio has been playing Katy Perry’s “Roar” every five fucking seconds, but DVF’s safari-themed pieces are just what the doctor ordered.

“What I’m hoping is that people feel joie de vivre, happiness, and beauty in a world that is so rough, so unpredictable, and scary,” the designer said before her show. Mission accomplished. These clothes make me happy. I feel like I can rule the damn world in jungle-chic ensembles that bring out my inner wild child. But I still don’t know which one I want (hypothetically, because let’s be serious—I ain’t made of money)…

I love Fashion Week, and I love runway show beauty, but not all of it is accessible. It’s not unusual for the makeup at some shows (see: red eyes at 3.1 Phillip Lim) to be utterly ill-advised when taken out of context. I believe that beauty is incredibly personal, and for that reason “runway beauty trends” are kind of moot: as beauty editor Cat Marnell at xoJane put it in her beautifully introspective piece on Fashion Week, “don’t you already sort of know what looks good on you?” Models, who look good in anything, including red eyeliner, whose faces are painted in a manner that complements the focal point, the clothes, should not dictate what makeup you decide to wear. You know what you like: stick to it. Sometimes, though, just as we scurry to replicate a red carpet makeup look we find covetable, and think would look good on us, there’s beauty on the runway that can work for you. If dark, dramatic eyes with a rebellious, middle-finger flair are your trademark, here are three tutorials for you to try.
