VELVET Everywhere

It’s no surprise that the number one trend for fall/winter is velvet. Seen all over street style goers during fashion month, the trend is so luxe and looks good on every form of clothing/accessory. Velvet is the perfect staple piece for those holiday parties. Shop my favorite velvet pieces below!

The Duster Jacket

Fall is approaching and the duster jacket is a great transition piece for fall. I love this embroidered one from Missguided. Pair the statement jacket with high waist pants, a tee, and ankle boots for a casual look, or dress it up with a silk cami, trousers, and heels. Shop the duster jacket below!

Denim on Denim

The 90s fashion trends aren’t going anywhere (TG). Denim, slips, and chokers are probably more popular now than they were in the 90s. Denim especially has taken on a whole new look seen all over the (runway) streets. An easy go-to 90s summer look is pairing denim shorts with a slip tank and oversized denim jacket. The look wouldn’t be complete without a choker too of course. Can’t get enough of the 90s fashion? Shop my look below!

p.s. My choker is Dlynn Jewelry designed by me – launching soon. Follow on Instagram @dlynnjewelry for updates!

Get Lolla Ready

Lollapalooza is this week, so I wanted to share some inspiration images from the best festival goers to help you prepare for your outfit. We know it takes some well thought out planning to pull off that effortless festival look (hehe). I’m really into keeping it simple this year with denim cut-offs and a bodysuit like Bella’s look.

All about that mom butt

Why are the “mom jeans” just so cool now? I use to cringe if I saw a pair of straight leg jeans in middle school (it was all about the low rise and flare then obvi). Well, since we’ve come to our senses, the mom jeans are just an effortless casual fit (not too tight, not too loose). What do ya think? Shop the best mom butt denim below!

Coachella 2016 Trends

image

Sheer, sheer, sheer, and more sheer (and maybe a little fringe and denim) is all you need to be wearing (or not wearing) at Coachella. While I had major FOMO over the weekend, I still couldn’t resist looking at what everyone was wearing. Coachella fashion kicks off all the festival inspiration for the summer, and I’ve rounded up the top three trends for festival season including all the major key pieces. Styling tip: the one key for festival fashion is accessorize! Accessorize with a head piece, hair accessories, choker, statement jewelry, belts, scarves, & of course face jewelry (like-Body Bauble). Shop the festival looks below!

The Denim Dress

I’ve been searching for the perfect denim dress for awhile, and finally found this one from Forever21 for only $30! I kept it simple by pairing it with a pair of over-the-knee boots (add fur coat for winter). We all know this Chicago weather is cray…  Style tip: to keep warm wear tights with boots or wear with leather pants and booties. Shop the entire look below! -De

Choker DIY

Processed with VSCOcam with a6 preset

Since the choker necklace is a big jewelry trend right now, I wanted to show you guys a DIY on how to make a simple black choker just in time for your nye outfit. Check out the steps below!

Processed with VSCOcam with a6 preset

Materials you need– fabric, scissors, sewing tools (sewing machine), pins, snaps, tool for snaps, and optional embellishment (metal chain and jump rings).

Step 1: Cut two pieces of fabric (same size) making sure they are long enough to fit around your neck. Pin the two right sides together. Sew along pins and cut access fabric off.

Step 2: Once the access fabric around the edges is cut off, turn your fabric right side out. This step takes a little time because the fabric is narrow, but keep pulling it through. Next, press (iron) the fabric so it is completely flat. After pressing I sewed each end closed.

Step 3: Next is adding the snaps on. I watched a youtube video that was really helpful, which I suggest you do because it’s a little hard to explain via images.

Step 4: After you set the pointed side of the snap through, you attach the other end over the top and press together with your snap tool. Next, add the other end of the snap doing the same thing.

Step 5: After setting both sides of your snaps, test it out and make sure the snaps are on tight and not loose, so they don’t fall off (I had to press them on a couple of times to make sure they stay). You’re done!

Optional step: I also bought a metal diamond chain to add along the bottom of the choker. Just poke a hole through the area where you want it to hang and put the jump ring through the hole attaching the chain.

Hope you guys found this DIY useful! Comment below if you have any questions! -De
