Things are starting to warm up and it’s not just the sunny weather we’ve been having mid December in Southern California, you might even say I have a fever…Fever Dream to be exact!
This SPECIAL EDITION: TRENDSETTING TUESDAY is all about my recent interview with Lauren Fortner, creator of the rockin’ badass line Fever Dream.
So what exactly is Fever Dream?
“Fever Dream is a fun, edgy line created for those who want to stand out from the crowd as a badass without breaking the bank.” – L
Sound great to us! This punk rock look is edgy and dark and a little provocative. Do you have to be punk to wear this collection?
“Not at all! There are plenty of options on the site that are more “girly” plus, skulls and spikes are super trendy right now for everyone. I have rock n roll roots, so that’s the stuff I’m most passionate about on the site, but there is something for everyone on there. -L”
Trending all over the fashion nation, hats have never been more in style. Back in the 70’s wide-brimmed hats were all the rage, now decades later they’ve emerged to perfect any outfit. The great thing about these hats is the way they instantly pump up any outfit from day to night.
There are so many ways to pair a wide-brimmed hat, just admire the images below. Pair it with black trousers, a chiffon button-up blouse, outlandish statement jacket for a high fashion look. Tone it down with skinny jeans, a clean and crisp white shirt, you can add some edge with a mini skirt and leather jacket, or be date ready with a LBD and heels.
They come in many colors and sizes, you can be as subtle as you want or as dramatic. Let the world know you’re ready to make a statement or just hide a bad hair day. You can snatch one for as little as $16 from Forever21 to as high as $400 from Bloomingdales. Find your right color and size and say hello to all your new admirers.
Don’t be shy, go wide or go home!

At ease ladies! Winter is coming and we need to gather essentials, starting with the military jacket.
While this basic olive green cover-up started hitting stores last winter, this time around they come equipped with a little more dazzle. Leather sleeves, shoulder spikes, patches and more have given new life to this jacket. My favorite comes with drawstrings around the waist to add some body shape to my figure and a hood. I found my favorite on EBay for a whopping $27. Easily accessible they can be seen from thrift stores to designer made.
Leather pants, beige tank, tan platforms and jacket a must. Jean shorts, black crop top, knee high socks with booties and jacket; LBD, strappy nude wedges, bedazzled military jacket and BAM! So many different ways to pair it.
Find the right one for your taste and add this casually cool jacket into your Fall wardrobe. Neutral earth tones look best with it, but don’t be afraid to add other colors to stand out such as burgundy, royal blue and even bright sunshine yellow!
Are you a lover or a fighter for this trend?
First they are comfortable, who doesn’t like a little comfort? Secondly, they are fashionable and can enhance your outfit tremendously when done right, something that plain black or grey trousers fail to do. Thirdly, you can wear flats, sandals, heels or wedges and still make it look like you tried to dress up even when you didn’t. Lastly, they are available anywhere! From affordable Forever21 designs to designer made, they are so easy to find. I found my favorite pair for only $20 at the mall.
What I love about them is the fact that a simple basic top can be paired with the printed pant. A blazer, leather jacket or coat can enhance your look by making it casual or dressy. I recommend grabbing a great multicolored pair and adding a colorful blazer like the outfit above with the yellow one.
You don’t have to go all out. If you are new to wearing this much print keep your accessories to a minimum until you find the perfect pair that makes you feel superb and then try dazzling it up a bit. The great part about these pants are that they are the statement.
There literally are thousand of prints, colors, designs and styles that finding the perfect ones won’t be difficult. Unless you fall in love with all of them and end up wanting multiple pairs! But who cares these trousers are timeless.
Wear them at the office, school, work, church, a date, a concert, you can be seen in them anywhere and look like you stepped out of a fashion magazine. Try it out and let me know how you style this awesome trend. Are you a bright colored chica, basic black and white, floral print, animal print or all of the above lover?
As for me I’m a must-have-all! Every time I pull them out I wear it with something different. If I have a black and white pair I’ll sometimes throw on a basic black top and add a chunky statement necklace, high pony and depending on the outing heels or sandals. Never the same look twice!
