Bringing the Drama with Dramatic Sleeves

Bringing the Drama with Dramatic Sleeves: Featuring a velvet red mini dress with balloon sleeves and gold heels

If there’s one common thread in the trends taking off in the new decade, it’s that bigger is better. Fashion is moving away from the minimalist essence that dominated the runways through the mid-2010s and embracing the drama. Bags are getting bigger, pant legs are getting wider, and sleeves are getting ever more dramatic, too. Fashion is channelling the 80s and early-00s is a big way. To be honest, those two are my least favorite decades in fashion. But the 2020s take on dramatic sleeves has captured my attention. read more

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

Snake Me Out Tonight

Snake Me Out: Featuring a snake print knit dress, black pumps, and a prada saffiano shoulder bag

Hello, 2019! We’re about halfway through January, and I’m proud of the fact I haven’t messed up what year it is once yet. If you read my last post on 2018’s fashion trends, you know animal print was my top trend of 2018. Luckily for me, it’s still going strong in 2019, which means I had time to pull out this adorable snake print dress I got a few months ago. read more

‘Tis the Season for Plaid

'Tis the Season for Plaid: Featuring a gray plaid two piece pant set with red cage heels and a red patent leather shoulder bag

Nothing is new under the sun, and it’s especially true about plaid. Although it’s been highlighted as one of this fall/winter’s major trends, it’s a little disingenuous. Plaid trends so often in the colder months that it’s basically a staple print at this point. It’s not usually my favorite print, but when I came across this 80s inspired two-piece, I was totally sold. Somehow my least favorite fashion decade and my not-so-favorite print had come together to create something I actually liked. read more

The Only Sweater Dress You Need This Fall

The Only Sweater Dress You Need this Fall: Featuring a white v-neck sweater dress with turtle buttons down the front, turtle-print geometric drop earrings, and brown pumps

Sometimes with clothing, it’s love at first sight. You try on a dress, or slide your foot into a shoe, and you know immediately that you’re going home together. That feeling is exactly why I can never let go of in person shopping (and also because I never remember to return things.) I was actually at the store looking for cute pajamas when I found this sweater dress and immediately had to have it. Love always finds you when you’re not looking for it! read more
