    Fashion Week is as good of a time as any to go all out, no-holds-barred, with one's outfits. But, because we never want to look like we're trying, we were instantly drawn to the sophisticated-sweet, subtly sexy, and polished-yet-edgy Carven spring '13 collection.

    A solid winner at the start of Paris Fashion Week, Thursday's presentation welcomed a sea of oversized collars over cropped sweaters, streamlined outerwear, and the most strategic bean-shaped cutouts that make peekaboo more interesting than ever.

    With a glimpse backstage, as well, the details of Carven only became more pronounced. Fresh faces and swishing side parts were enough to inspire a new twist on minimal spring beauty. However, our favorite detail had to be the streaks of pink hair. Not pronounced, but just subtle enough to catch our eye, the small outside-the-box rosy tresses were the perfect amount of edge to amplify the proper, but not-so-prim Carven silhouettes.
