The Spring Summer 2015 runways were, for the most part, extremely understated. Blowouts were the exception, not the rule. Models wore little to no makeup. Sheer fabrics, soft suedes, and feather embellishments gave earthy appeal to designer collections. All of this minimalism made bold touches really pop: a swipe of orange shadow, a bright shoe, or a statement hairstyle. The edgy styles shown here were some of our favorites.

The soft warmth of amber is more subtle on dark shades than in lighter levels. This shade has a deep, toasted feeling like the caramelized edges of a decadent desert. If you’re looking for a fresh shade of brown this fall, this lovely shade is a delicately hued alternative to chocolate or chestnut.
