The Golden Globes saw a number of drool worthy gowns and accessories, but what really caught my attention was the number of cropped hair cuts on the red carpet. IT girls like Rosamund Pike and Emma Stone were noteworthy, but it was Kate Mara who stole the short-locks show. Her stylist added a simple twist near the actress’s neck––raising her glam factor off the charts. And with everyone, from actresses to girls on the street taking off a few inches in 2015, I feel this style will come in handy whether you’re headed to a fancy even or just to brunch.

The influence of menswear on contemporary female fashion takes many forms from slim fit jeans to tailored suits, from thick brows to pompadours. For the coming season masculine influence feels clean and polished, but without the usual edge of severity. Deeply parted and neatly tailored hairstyles, clean skin, and crisp clothing in soft neutrals present a softly androgynous look that’s clean and gamine.

Red hair was a big trend in 2014 and it’s predicted to grow even more in the coming year. But it’s not the same rose gold and vibrant copper hues as previous seasons. This year reds are softening. We’ll see bright yet natural shades like plummy wine, peach sorbet, and sweet potato. Pink and gold undertones give these shades vibrance but minimize intensity. Learn more about the hottest reds of the season in the style notes. –– Laura Martin
