The Spring 2017 menswear shows are currently underway in Milan. And while this season is mostly focused on the men, some designers are showing early looks for the ladies as well. Miuccia Prada returned to travel as an overall theme for the season and the ladies strutting down her runway wore amazing gym inspired braids paired with dewy complexions—a great beauty combination for summer. I loved the sporty hair, a look comprised of slim braids that were done diagonally down the crown and finished with a halo of wispys. The models appeared to have just walked out of yoga class, their inner glow showing through. This is gym chic done right.

Cool colors can be tricky in the summer when days are longer and most of us spend more time outside. The sun oxidizes color, turning it yellow. Using products that contain SPF will help, but maintaining icy platinum in the summer months can still be quite a battle. This shade, which is icy cool, but with a bit more pigment, is a resilient choice for summer. It combines steely gray with a honey wheat base for a color that’s balanced and appealingly grungy.
