ALL ABOUT BEAUTY: Back To Basics

Two things that will never go out of style are braids and red nails. Both just seem to be resilient to the seasonal cycle of trends and remain popular on college campuses. 

This week’s Fashionista is rocking a braid very similar to my previous style spot. Needless to say, the messy, side braid is very popular here at BU. Take sartorial and beauty cues from the fall 2011 Band of Outsiders runway where imperfect side braids peeked out from models’ beanies. Bring the hat and side braid combination to the beach this summer by investing in a Pendleton straw hat like this one from Urban Outfitters. The look will bear resemblance to this Fashionista who was spotted last October in NYC. 

This Fashionista’s freshly painted nails stand out against her unique stone rings and colorful bangle. Bright red nails and matching lips surfaced on Jason Wu’s runway this spring. For your very own cherry red nails this season, try Sephora by OPI polish in “Fiercely Fabulous.”
