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. Want to know what I’ll be wearing Thursday? Follow on Insta- de_sylvester and catch who I’ll be seeing on Snap- desylvester! xo- De

Red, White, & Blue

Can’t decide what to wear on the 4th, but don’t want to go all out? Try sticking with one or two colors like white and blue, or a red dress and straw hat with denim slide sandals. Denim is a good way to stay festive without going overboard. Shop my fav low key red, white, and blue pieces below! (except it’s okay to go all out with the swimwear) 😉  Happy 4th!

The Most Flattering & Affordable One-Pieces

One-piece- Victoria’s Secret Crochet Monokini

Let’s say one-pieces are probably the most flattering swimsuits right now, but some can be a little much with tons of cutouts and unflattering silhouettes. I’m all about the one-piece and definitely prefer it over a two-piece. I’ve picked out some of the most flattering and affordable one-pieces for you guys to shop below!

Coachella 2016 Trends

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 Jacket Trend Everyone is Wearing

It’s the cool AF jacket we all want. The bomber jacket has been seen everywhere (especially on Gigi and Kendall). Another 90s/early 2000s throwback trend that has come back. If you remember Baby Phat, then you for sure had one. Designers have been adding in the bomber to their new collections, and it was seen all over street style goers during fashion weeks. This must have spring trend adds an instant cool girl vibe to your look. Shop simple satin or print bombers below! -De

5 Simple Lace-up DIY Steps

image

Want to add a little lace-up to your suit, or since summer is pretty much over..to your low-cut top? As we know lace-up has been a huge trend this summer and it is carrying into fall. I decided to add some lace to my Asos one-piece swimsuit not only because I love this trend, but because it is a little revealing with sudden movement. Here are 5 simple steps to adding lace-up to your clothes:

Supplies: Grommet pliers, grommets, scissors, pencil (fabric chalk), piece of fabric to practice on (make sure it’s the same thickness of the fabric you are working on to get the same results). I practiced setting the grommet on a similar swimwear fabric.

  1. Practice, practice, practice on another piece of fabric before applying the grommets to the garment you are working on so you don’t make any mistakes!
  2. First, mark your garment in the areas you want place your grommets.
  3. Using your scissors, cut a small slit in the marked area to fit the grommet in the hole. Make sure to cut a small hole, so the grommet fits tight. You may need to stretch the hole around the grommet to make sure it is secure.
  4. Once it is settled in, take the pliers, place the grommet in between (in the fabric), and press down pretty hard to secure the grommet in. You may need to rotate the pliers around the grommet to make sure it is equally secure all the way around.
  5. It’s set! Once all your grommets are set in, lace it up!

Stripes on stripes

Stripes on stripes might sound a little cray, but in this case I think it works and is very trendy. Looks best paired with the same color scheme for the top and bottom. If it’s colorful keep it colorful, and if it’s neutral keep it all neutral. Shorts are from Zara and top is Urban Outfitters, but unfortunately purchased awhile ago and no longer available. Don’t worry though, I picked out some similar (even better) pieces you can shop below! -De

Lolla ’15 Look

image

I decided not to design my outfit this year, as I have the past two years. Instead, I wanted to try out this new “see through” dress trend. Although the look can look somewhat revealing (parents may not approve), but I’d say it’s definitely appropriate for Lollapalooza. I paired my lace-up bodysuit from Missguided underneath the gold knitted dress with a pair of white Converse. You can even dress up the look by wearing a nude slip underneath with heels. I absolutely love this trend and want to know what you guys think? Shop the look below! – De
