ByCaitlin M.

Now that New York Fashion Week Spring 2017 has officially come to a close, it's time to take the trends we scoped out on the catwalk and try them out IRL. Below, we gathered up some of the top trends we spotted (and actually want to try!) from NYFW. Take a peek at the stunning looks, 

Just-out-of-the-shower hair

Although this wet look might not seem wearable, we spotted it on enough runways to prove that it 100 percent is! This look from Tanya Taylor created by Bumble and bumble stylist Allen Wood was inspired by the designers travels to Cuba and Capri. Models had bends in their hair to mimic air-dried locks. Key productBumble and bumble Surf Spray around small sections of hair, followed by twisting the hair around the fingers to create the waves.

A totally different take on the super-soaked look came from Odile Gilbert, Kérastase Paris Consulting Hairstylist, who created this look for the Altuzarra runway show. "It is definitely sexy and represents the moment when you get out of the water at the beach and push your hair back," said Odile in a press release. Key product: Kérastase Paris Crème de la Crème all over the head, followed by brushing the hair back into a combed edgy style.

Bold eyeliner

For a super sexy, smoky eye, look no further than this look from Rebecca Minkoff. Maybelline makeup artist, Gato, created this perfectly imperfect kohl look to capture the "gypsy spirit" of the new collection. Mission accomplished. Key products: Expert Wear Eye Shadow in Khaki Camo and Falsies Push Up Angel Mascara to layer over a black base and create a dramatic smize.

This fresh sweep of color at Victoria Beckham  was a bold and daring look that we simply couldn't get over. The dash of color balanced out the otherwise minimal makeup look. Plus, it coincided with the launch of the new Victoria Beckham Estée Lauder collection. Key product: Victoria Beckham Estée Lauder Eye Palette to create a freeform swoosh of color across the lid.

Half updos

Vintage beauties
