Turning to laid-back boxy proportions, bared midriffs, flatforms, and tropical prints, Tibi's Amy Smilovic crafted wares that remind us to take it easy. Watch on to see the entire Spring 2014 collection in action.
Forget blurred lines: at Spring 2014 New York Fashion Week, it's been all about straight lines. In lieu of intricate nail art, designers have been sending models down the runway wearing simple, clean straight lines on the nails. Whether it's horizontal, vertical, or both (like the look from Tibi, pictured above), this look is easy to achieve at home. Just grab a nail art pen and draw. If you prefer a more precise line, however, painter's tape is perfect to use as a guide to form straight shapes. You can also try striping tape ($3), a thin adhesive strip that's easily cut to size.

"Now, grunge is much more like faux grunge, where we have perfect skin and a little smooshed eyeliner," said Alice Lane, lead makeup artist at Tibi's Spring 2014 show. "If you're going to do grunge on your eyes, you have to make sure your skin is perfect. That is the way I think grunge is elevated to now." The beauty look mixed elements of bohemian and grunge for a traveled-in style, including dewy skin, mussed hair, and nail art with a hidden message.
Maybelline Color Tattoo in Too Cool ($7) was splattered along the lids, with Lane encouraging her team to get creative; each girl had a customized look. The hair was made to look as if the girls had just woken up from a long nap in the backseat of the car. Lead stylists Kevin Ryan and Frank Rizzieri used a flatiron to create a divot in the style for that worn-in road-trip look.
Keeping with the bohemian theme, Jin Soon Choi painted nails in a pale blue-gray shade (launching Spring 2014) with obsidian-hued lines drawn on the middle three fingers. Put together, the sign formed the symbol meaning "alright." It seems Tibi wants us to talk to the hand (pun intended).
If Tibi's last season was made for the urban warrior, then this was made for her Spring break. With laid-back, boxy proportions, bared midriffs, flatforms, and tropical prints, Amy Smilovic crafts Spring 2014 with a reminder to take it easy.

The piece: Tibi Eriko Halter
The price: $158, originally $225
Why we want it: As far as we're concerned, every girl needs a shoulder-baring halter top in her wardrobe. It's equal parts sexy and sporty — and we always appreciate a good fashion juxtaposition. What makes Tibi's printed halter unique is its blue print and piped contrast neckline. Plus, it's made of 100 percent silk, which means its high quality will not go unnoticed. We can envision tucking this one into a black pencil skirt for work, leather pants for a night out, or with our favorite denim for a more casual approach. Even more exciting, it'll really come to life when paired with another bold pattern, creating a fun mixed-print party.
Add a little mod fashion to your wardrobe repertoire with the It dress of the season: the shift. Boasting clean lines and an effortlessly chic Twiggy attitude, the shift dress will seamlessly work into your day-to-night style. Wear Tibi's bold emerald frock with a collared top and knee-high boots for a directionally '60s feel, or amp up your power-player office style in Dolce & Gabbana's smart tweed dress paired with pumps, a structured satchel, and no-holds-barred red lips.
There's a reason why so many newscasters around the world choose illusion dresses as their wardrobe go-tos. Colorblocking right at the waist (or straight down both sides of your body) to make you look slimmer is a chic effect that's nothing short of magical and perfect for those days when you "couldn't make it" to the gym. Shop our work- and party-appropriate picks — all under $200! — featuring brands like Tibi, Vince, and Rebecca Minkoff.
Matchy-matchy is having a moment, thanks to Heidi Klum's coordinated Tibi separates. We spotted the supermodel stepping out in NYC in Tibi's Spring '13 windowpane prints — now we want them too. Equal parts polished and playful, this is the perfect outfit to take you from a casual workday to drinks or dinner. Follow Heidi's lead and add a bright tote and classic pumps to further the styled-sophisticate vibe. Just be warned — Tibi's Spring lineup is flying off the shelves; act fast to get a piece of it, and shop our editors' picks for ways to re-create the look. Everything you need is below!
