As we lie back for the last days of summer, fashion houses are dousing us in their fall/winter campaigns. There’s plenty tips one can take from the imagery, even if not quite ready for knits. Theory, for example, is lobbying for minimalistic essentials. More interesting, though, are the beauty looks that go with their campaign; they once again show a high fashion house portraying women and girls with waves and curls. We’ve seen a slew of marketing imagery showing the same looks, which means the summer trend for beachy waves and undone elegance is set to snowball into fall and winter. Time for an American Wave!

I love watching the olympics, in large part because of the plethora of female athletes. I’m far from an olympian, but I am definitely more fit than delicate, and it’s inspiring to see other physically strong women. Watching my favorite soccer players, runners, and tumblers gives me a little extra motivation at the gym, reminds me that looking strong does not take away from looking feminine, and gives me plenty of fit-girl beauty inspiration. I’m not the kind of girl who spends a lot of time primping before a workout, but considering that I spend an average of 6-8 hours a week at the gym, I do sometimes get bored with a plain ponytail. My favorite olympians have some awesome and very durable solutions. Click the notes to learn about my favorites. –– Laura Martin  Click for StyleNotes →
