Whether worn with a light dusting of bright eyeshadow or bare, doe-eyed peepers, don’t think twice about keeping those sunny tangerine hues in your makeup bag.

#NYFW Round-Up: FashionIndie’s Faves from New York Spring 2012

Edited by

There’s a definite consensus around the FashionIndie office regarding this season at the tents: lackluster. Gone was the excitement and the thrill of the new and in its stead stood a circus comprised of the old guard impatiently appraising the crop of would-be streetstyle stars and the army of bloggers hanging about as they waded through the muck of the nameless and the irrelevant to find a collection onto which to pin their ever-dwindling hopes . Still, there were a few shows that set the five barely-beating hearts of FashionIndie racing and had our backs aching to be clothed in their bright and bold designs.

#NYFW Beauty Trend: Samurai Hair

Edited by

You can always count on the ponytail to be reinvented with each passing season. It comes in all shapes and sizes from bushy to sleek, high to low and can have curls, extensions or braids. For Spring 2012, designers looked east for inspiration. With a knot on the top and ponytail on the bottom, samurai hair is both chic and low maintenance. It’s been my go-to face washing hairstyle for years. Click through to see photos from all the labels on board.
