The “I woke up this fabulous” look is now in, and Amsterdam’s Ready to Fish was no exception to the rule. Ilja Visser is the beauty and brains behind Dutch fashion house, Ready to Fish, which was launched in 2013. The main goal of this ready-to-wear line is to offer beautiful fashion that is wearable to all occasions.

According to Ilja Visser:

An outfit needs a comfortable fit, so you can ride your bike while wearing it.

The F/W 2015 collection from Ready to Fish debuted at New York Fashion Week this past February, where stunning models graced the runway in structured cuts and designs. The beauty looks were also memorable.

Before the show, team Broke & Chic had the opportunity to discuss all things beauty with industry insiders backstage. Below you’ll learn the beauty trends that will be taking over 2015, and how to incorporate them into your daily routine:

Makeup

Going for a statement look can be amazing, but it can also go very wrong. Well, worry no more because those elaborated looks are so last season. Andrew Toma, a makeup artist who has worked with NARS and MAC, loved the “sheer washed” look that took over the Ready to Fish runway show.

“I like that we are going with a more natural, out of the shower look… I’ve seen it all throughout Fashion Week” said Andrew as he touched up some lips with a pale rose color mixed with foundation.

Backstage at New York Fashion Week

He explained that this look is a “more sculpted, but softer look” compared to what we have seen the last couple of years. He said he contoured with bronzer, used just foundation on the eyes – sealed with the shimmery Nico by NARS – and lots of mascara.

Hair

Low ponytails aren’t only for the gym anymore; they can now be elegant if done correctly. A tight, sleek and structured low pony that leaves your face as the center of attention is the way to go. The look has a natural finish that can be masculine and tough. But don’t let that turn you off from the trendy hairdo.

Celebrity hairstylist, David Cruz, was the master mind that created the hair look for Ready to Fish’s runway show. He took the time to give all the Broke & Chic girl’s out there some advice on how to get the runway look at home:

Backstage at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in NYC

Start by blow drying your hair with Redken’s Smooth Look Anti-Frizz Cream. If your hair is still wavy, take a flat iron to it. Otherwise, spray you hair with the Shine Flash 02 Glistening Mist for that sleek shine the models’ have.

From there, do a side part (or middle if that’s what floats your boat) and create a low pony. It doesn’t have to be perfect, that tousled detail in the crown will give you that “I woke up like this” look. Finish it off by using Redken’s Forceful 23 Super Strength Finishing Spray, which also adds shine.

Redken love!

Your goal is to have a sleek pony, not sleek all over. If you are unsure about the most stylish length for your hair, David said to get a “medium to long [haircut] to give yourself the opportunity to try more looks.”

Nails

Take the nude and natural trend to your nails. New York based nail artist, Patricia Yankee, chose to custom mix two nude shades from her nail polish collection to match every single model’s skin tone. Try to re-create the natural mix yourself with a white base and your favorite nude color.

This winter has been nothing but brutal, mean, and obnoxious. If it’s not snowing, it’s below freezing, and us New Yorkers (and Bostonians) are over it. We. Just. Can’t. Even.

All we want to do is sip on a delicious iced coffee from Blue Bottle, without a coat, with the hot sun shining on our faces. Is that too much to ask? Apparently.

If you’re over winter as well, you might be over your winter wardrobe, too. Below are five fashionable ladies that found ways to look stylish in this unbearable weather.

New York Fashion Week happened in the middle of a polar vortex. Many of the attendees wanting to see the Fall/Winter 2015 collections had to tolerate below freezing temps and bitter cold winds. While many of fashion’s elite found ways to stay stylish AND warm, others might find it difficult. Do you sacrifice warmth? Or do you sacrifice style? Luckily, you don’t have to sacrifice either.

Designers such as Charlotte Ronson, Emily Saunder and Ready to Fish showcased different versions of the popular sweater dress that were both long and structured. Below you’ll see the “fashionably warm” look that hit the runways just last week:

Runway to Real Way: Survive the Polar Vortex in Style with a Sweater Dress

Isn’t it a pleasure to see a trend that transfers perfectly from the runway to your wardrobe? This structured piece can go with legging or tights, depending on the occasion.

FYI, you don’t have to wait for next season to get here to get in on this trend. Below are five sweater dresses you can get your hands on now:

In all honesty, New York Fashion Week is an extremely odd ordeal. People wear absurd things — like yellow feathers and roller-sandals (no joke), those working behind-the-scenes (models, PR, make-up artists…) are often either extremely friendly or extremely rude, and it’s either boiling hot outside or frigid. There’s no in-between. There’s no moderation.

But let’s focus on the “people wearing absurd things” part. Many people attend Fashion Week in their Sunday best (with a dash of Alexa Chung), while others don’t try to be fashionable at all — since they’re working the event. Some go way out of their comfort zones just so they can be snapped by street style photographers, and others simply wear sleeping bags, like the girl below:

This Girl Managed to Make a Sleeping Bag Look Fashionable at NYFW

By the time I saw her, I was so done taking street style photos. My fingers were stiff and numb because of the freezing temps. My SD card was running out of space, and I had to get somewhere else ASAP. But I saw a bunch of photographers swarm someone, and I just had to get a better look.

And there she was, a girl wearing a sleeping bag. At first I was like, “really?” and became a tad annoyed. People do all sorts of crazy things in the name of fashion, but then I realized I needed to stop hating, because let’s get real…SHE LOOKS FREAKIN’ AWESOME!

This Girl Managed to Make a Sleeping Bag Look Fashionable at NYFW

This girl found a way to make a sleeping bag fashionable. Truly amazing. And she had the right idea since it was freezing out. I bet she was warm and cozy all day (unlike myself).

So there you have it, a girl wore a sleeping bag to Fashion Week and made it work.

New York City decided to turn into a tundra this February — just in time for New York Fashion Week. As you may know, NYFW is when fashion’s elite debut their new collections for the next season. The new collections are always exciting to see, but the attendees are sometimes more interesting.

Below are the street style snaps we captured on day two and day four of NYFW. It was freezing, but these ladies managed to look hot and stylish nonetheless:

Yesterday marked the last day of Fashion Week in New York City. We’re definitely sad, but we’re excited to see what London Fashion Week has in store for the fashion industry.

Of course seeing the new collections from our favorite designers is enjoyable, but nothing beats street style. NYC’s most fashionable residents attend NYFW every season, and believe me when I say this — they’re the real taste makers. Below are our favorite trends we spotted outside of Lincoln Center (where the magic happens).

Enjoy!

1. Moody Florals

We’re loving the resurgence of moody floral prints from the 90’s! Proof that not all floral prints have to be ultra girly.

2. All Black

Want to look like a tough-as-nails fashionista? Consider wearing all black the next time you go out with your friends.

Ultra High Ponytail

Messy Up-do

Who says an up-do has to be done by a skilled professional? Embrace the imperfections and do it yourself! This look works well for a fancy night out, or a casual night in.

The ponytail was the hair-do of choice for many designers this season at New York Fashion Week. From ready-to-wear and couture all the way to bridal, the ponytail was a must.

Some designers stuck with a high pony, such as Meskita and Doré, while others — including Leanne Marshall and Milly by Michelle Smith — went for an elegant low pony. Either way, each look shouted “sporty chic.”

Below are our favorite ponies from NYFW:

Meskita

Meskita Fall 2014 collection boasts “clean shapes” with a “touch of sport,” so the lead hairstylists at NIOXIN gave all the models thick and full ponytails with lots of movement.

Meskita-backstage-2014

Meskita-21

Doré

The runway show for Doré Designs was absolutely stunning. This was Dawn Smart’s first ready-to-wear collection and the models walked the runway with European flair, glossy lips and bouncy ponies.

Dore-runway-2014

Leanne Marshall

Season five Project Runway winner Leanne Marshall debuted her Fall 2014 collection last Sunday. Instead of traditional bridal makeup, her models walked the runway with a strong smokey eye and a low pony.

Leanne-Marshall-2014

Milly by Michelle Smith

The hair and makeup backstage at Milly was simple and straight forward so her clothes could do the talking! We think this hair look will be extremely popular this fall since it’s extremely easy to replicate.

So many of the beautiful looks that walk down the runway during Fashion Week aren’t wearable for the masses. How many of you have the okay from the boss to wear see-through gowns to the office? We certainly don’t! But don’t worry, we’ve scouted out the best.

Below are our favorite wearable looks from NYFW.

1.

We could totally see Zooey Deschanel rockin’ this Erin Featherston dress on her way to the New Girl set!

2.

This combo from SAUNDER is unbelievably stunning! All the looks from this runway show blew us away, but this one stood out the most.

This look would be perfect for both the office and date night with that special someone.

Charlotte Ronson’s F/W 2014 collection is dark, mysterious and oh-so romantic. The look below will be perfect for long walks in the park this fall.

Our favorite from the ready-to-wear runway show for Manufacture NY was Abacaxi. This dress from her new collection would be perfect for a night out with the girls!

To make it more work friendly, simply add a black blazer.

5.

Nolcha Fashion Week always has talented new designers, but Katty Xiomara really stood out since her collection was inspired by Peanut characters (Snoopy, Charlie Brown and the gang).

6.

We’ve been crushing on Christian Benner’s work for months and fell even more in love at his runway show last night. Wouldn’t you just love that white leather jacket to be a part of your wardrobe?

This print from Gabrielle Arruda is just what the doctor ordered. Perfect for school, the office or a date at a trendy Lower East Side bar.

We had the honor of meeting Candiace Dillard at the Doré Runway show this past week. Candiace is a beauty queen that currently holds the title of “Miss United States.” How fancy!

Candice+Dillard+Dore+Front+Row+Mercedes+Benz+UlWUSf-rMLrl

It’s not everyday you meet a beauty queen, and that’s why we had to ask her a few questions! Below she shared with us her favorite beauty products and how she stays flawless on busy days:

  • 1. Oil sheets are your best friend! Even if you don’t have oily skin, they’ll keep your foundation looking fresh.
  • 2. Make your eyes pop by lining your upper lash line.
  • 3. A good brow can change your life! See a professional regularly for a good shaping and start filling in your brows with a pencil.
  • 4. Use clip-ins to create the illusion of longer, fuller hair. They’re way cheaper than extensions and won’t damage your hair.
  • 5. Matte lipsticks can double as a stain when you set them with loose powder.

She can’t live without MAC’s Fix+ setting spray and bronzer in Gold Deposit. According to Candiace:

“The spray gets rid of the caky look by giving your skin a dewy finish.”
