When it comes to spring looks, Nicholas K does not underestimate the power of a neutral palette. Mad Max-esque army-inspired jackets and draped layers evoke the earthy vibe of the sister-brother duo's previous collections, but metallic accents and smooth hair give off a new, futuristic touch in their latest collection for spring/summer 2016.

Gold foil-coated nails complement brass-colored arm cuffs and hardware for a majorly glam feel that elevates a collection of tan, beige, and grey hues. A warm flush of copper eyeshadow and bronzer gives dewy skin a sunkissed look, while nude lips kept things simple. Celebrity hairstylists swept models’ hair into our new go-to hairstyle—“The Back Knot,” a casual take on an Asian-inspired top knot, using Macadamia Professional Nourishing Moisture Oil Spray to give straightened hair a glossy look. This beauty inspo may be made for springtime, but we can’t wait to start wearing this desert-chic style all autumn and winter long.
