Lime Green Takeover: Summer’s Latest Color Trend

Lime Green Takeover: Summer's Latest Color Trend featuring a ruffled lime green dress, beaded brown bag and leopard print heeled sandals

Welcome back, Style of a Gemini readers! I’ve been MIA lately because real life has taken over, leaving me very little time for posts. Since my last post in January, I’ve gotten engaged (!!), got a new job, performed in my dance studio’s largest show of the year, and started wedding planning! It’s been a lot of fun but hard work that left me little energy for creating content. But when I saw lime green starting to pop up everywhere as the color of the summer, I knew I had to come out of hibernation to share it with you all! read more

Best and Worst Trends of 2018

Best and Worst Trends of 2018: Style of a Gemini Reflects on This Year in Fashion

2018 is drawing to a close, and it’s the perfect time to reflect on our year in fashion. 2018 brought much bigger changes to the fashion landscape than we’ve seen in years, largely due to the death of minimalism in high fashion. Personally, I thought it was a change more than overdue–you can only see a nude-colored head-to-toe look so many times before it feels uninspired. The trends of 2018 definitely took fun and fantasy to another level. read more

3 Fall Trends I’m Crazy For

3 Fall Trends I'm Crazy For: Featuring a fuchsia skirt, white tee, transparent belt bag, and small blackout sunglasses

Summer is coming to a close, and although summer is my favorite season, I’m looking forward to the start of fall and fall’s new trends. It marks the change of seasons the way back-to-school shopping used to do before I graduated. I used to spend hours trying to decide what I was going to wear on the first day of school—you had to stunt as hard as possible to set yourself up for the rest of the school year. And even though there isn’t a day like that in the working world, you can still stunt on your coworkers with these three fall trends. read more

Making a Statement: The Latest Sunglasses Trend

Making a statement: Featuring cat eye sunglasses paired with a white tee, red beret, and a plaid mini skirt

Ah, spring. Another change of season that brings along with it new trends for me to buy. This past weekend, I visited the Hirshhorn Museum‘s exhibit Brand New: Art and Commodity in the 1980s. It was a last minute decision based on the cherry blossom peak bloom’s postponement. My trendy spring outfit for that post was not suited for the decidedly not-spring weather, so only one item made it in–these cat eye statement sunglasses. read more

#DCFW: Style of a Gemini takes on DC Fashion Week 2018

#DCFW: Style of a Gemini takes on DC Fashion Week 2018

February 22-28th marked 2018 DC Fashion Week. I’ve only been to one other fashion show in my life. It was seven years ago, and I had come all the way across PA to watch my sister’s Senior Showcase in Philadelphia. I had done a good bit of sewing my own designs at that point, but it was nothing compared to what I saw. My sister’s collection was Afroglam to the fullest, featuring ankara fabrics before wearing daishikis became trendy. The evening of the show, I helped her into a leather mermaid dress and watched her and her friends in awe. After years of watching shows like America’s Next Top Model through the screen, the runway experience had come to life. read more
