In our Summer issue, out now, we highlighted the cut-out, slasher trend hot in fashion right now. The peek-a-boo look was all over the spring runways, and even continued for fall.
Here, some extras on-trend pieces available now.
Thai designer Disaya Sorakraikitikul’s cult line Disaya offers plenty of slits and slices in its spring/summer collection. I love the pleated panel skirt on this dress, its repetitious geometry echoed in the sheer panel by the neckline.
May Kosaka models her pieces for her line Mothe after the sensuous lines of flora and nocturnal creatures. This one criss-crosses the shoulders and neckline, like fingers gently resting on shoulders. I love the splash of neon yellow in the belt.
The Tart slashed strap top gives you a similar effect but with a sharper, more graphic take, like the shard-like panels on Shu Pei at Herve Leger’s fall/winter show.
For a more distressed, deconstructed look, try something that looks like Edward Scissorhands had his way with you, whether in Cynthia Rowley’s snipped up dress or a shredded sleeve sweater designed by Smitten‘s Jerry Chen.
Even if you’re not feeling the slash and burn look, you can get the look with optic stripes like on this knit tunic by Qi.
It’s a new season and I, for one, can’t wait to try out spring’s pretty, colorful looks. Inspired by all the sorbet colors on the runway, I’m gonna go for a more naturally pretty, naturally undone look.
But that doesn’t mean I’m going to put away my makeup kit. From flushed cheeks, yummy nails, bold brows and fluttery lashes, spring’s makeup arsenal has plenty of styles to experiment with.

Now, I’ve been raving about nude hues for quite some time. They’re gonna be huge for spring and I, for one, am a convert.
I really like a flesh-toned spring coat to liven up winter blacks. And for sure I have to get a beige or khaki pant or skirt to pair with a crisp white top or slouchy white tee. And tan is the perfect hue to balance a glowing pastel like lemon or mint.
“Nude” looks were all over the spring runways. From sporty khaki at Alexander Wang to aggressive minis in barely-there hues at Jen Kao to twisted and knotted nude chiffons at Burberry Prorsum, you’re going to want to run out and get something in this naked hue as soon as the dust settles from the mad rush that is the holidays.
If you didn’t know by now, green is back.
It started with the palest jade nails and jade jewelry on Chanel’s Autumn/Winter 2009/2010 runway.
Then the black nail polish obsession morphed into a penchant for all shades green, from blackened emerald to opaque mint.
And if the Spring 2010 runways are any indication, the color so commonly associated with everything from envy to environmental consciousness is officially back on its own merits: As pure, unadulterated color.
Still model of the moment, Liu Wen wore head to toe peacock green on the Yves Saint Laurent runway, made cooler with pewter accents.
At 3.1 Phillip Lim, the hue of choice was a chartreuse-y lime, done up in satin and made edgy with sheer black.
Can’t do head to toe? Add a touch in your accessories, like the printed scarf and deep emerald earrings on Liu Wen on the Marni runway. (Looks so good with gold — still going strong for spring!)
Treat green like a neutral. Just a touch of olive at Jonathan Saunders adds edge to clean lines. Tao Okamoto in Jonathan Saunders.
The freshest way to wear green is mixed with a shade — any shade — of blue. Emma Pei in a brilliant emerald green Lela Rose dress.
Get in on this trend now. Accessories are the easiest way to go green; they’ll add a pop to your fall wardrobe, or a twinge of envy for the holidays.
