MAGIC 8 BALL / PLEATED FASHION

magic 8 ball | pleated fashion

box pleat, knife pleat, inverted pleat, we’ll take them all! we’re seriously feeling all the pleats we’re seeing around town these days. chic, modern and sophisticated they’re showing up in jackets, skirts and dresses. they styles we’re digging today are ladylike, printed and even glamourous. we love how often they are paired with flat sandals or a pair of sneakers, such a good summer travel option when you don’t want to stick out like a tourist and want to pair a fashionable outfit with a comfortable shoe for walking.

13 SUMMER SANDAL PICKS!

summer sandals | designlovefest

it’s sandal season and as per usual there are so many cute options for the summer months. i’m a big fan of the slide which is showing up everywhere, i love the minimal line of the one strap and also the fact that they come in so many pretty colors, feels very retro cool. i picked up a pair of pom pom flip flops on my trip to Columbia that i’ve been wearing a lot. although, you can’t purchase the same ones i have i did find a cute option from zara that’s similar in style. listed some of my other favorite styles below

in my social media class (you can take it online here!) i talk about different brands and shops that i feel like do a great job promoting their brand on social media platforms. mansur gavriel is definitely one of those. i’m constantly inspired by the photos they put on instagram. the perfect mix of products and cool photos that make me want all of their new collections. i just love their style, don’t you?!

NEOPRENE, YAY OR NAY?

20

traditionally the material of wetsuits, neoprene is popping up more and more in the fashion world. it’s a synthetic rubber that comes in a variety of colors and shapes and is being used from everything from accent details to full on gowns. the coolest part, in our opinions, is the static shape that it holds due to its weight and consistency. designers can create volume, clean lines, and exaggerated silhouettes that will stay exactly as they create it to be which makes for a very dramatic statement. have you ever worn neoprene fashion, would you try it? see these and get inspired!

MAGIC 8 BALL PREDICTS: POWER PANTSUIT

the power pantsuit| designlovefest

it’s time to get matchy matchy, ladies! pantsuits are making a serious come back and they have never been more chic or cool. nothing like their 80’s sister, these suits are in bold colors and patterns, either cropped right at the ankle or flowing into a wide leg. they come in all types of fabrics and are sure to make a statement, that’s for sure. this trend stands in stark contrast to the un-styled styling that has been so popular over the past few years. nothing says i care more then putting on a head to toe coordinated pantsuit look and taking the streets.
