Christopher Bailey, Creative Director of Burberry can be credited with many things: spearheading the digitalisation of fashion, picking the freshest British faces as brand ambassadors, consistently reinventing the trench and for the resurgence of the shearling aviator jacket (which at the time was a pretty epic trend).
For the Burberry Autumn/Winter 2013 show, the biggest trend to arise was the absence of any particular hairstyle or facial focal point; there were no uniform bobs, cascading curls or bejewelled lips.
Bailey sensed it was time to keep things simple, and being the fashion prophet that he is, the Resort 2014 shows were testament to this.
At Marc Jacobs, Stella McCartney and Chloe, to name a few, models’ hair was kept simple and make-up barely visible.
As some of the world’s worst offenders seem to be veering away from overdoing the fake tan and the over-straightening, it seems we’ve all come to a quiet agreement that it’s time to chill out a bit, take a break and let the clothes (and our personalities) speak for themselves.
For the make-up obsessives (like me) who shudder at the thought, tell yourself you’ll have a make-up off day whenever it’s super sunny, not only will you look and feel like a free spirit, you’ll only have to do it once a month!
