The Braid Is Back — And We Couldn't Be Happier
Photographed by Mark Iantosca.
It's true that fall has really just begun — but, thanks to Fashion Week, we're already dreaming of spring clothes, accessories, and beauty looks. Exhibit A: This amazing woven braid we spotted at the spring '14 shows on Amber Fillerup of Barefoot Blonde
. The rumpled, matte texture just screams for warm weather, and we can't wait to pair the 'do with all of the tough-ladylike duds we've been spotting on the runways.
The key takeaways here? First of all, the French braid is woven inside-out, which makes the plait even more striking. The second is a small detail, but nonetheless important: The clear elastic, which disappears into the style, and allows the whole look to appear less contrived.
