One trend that always seems to be in style is the Aztec print. With the endless variations and colors you can combine in an Aztec print, you won't get bored with it.

Katydid tees are worn by women with different interests and lifestyles and we're always excited to see how our customers incorporate Katydid into their looks. Jeans and a Teacup blogger Jessica recently styled our "Eat Sleep Blog Repeat" tank from our newest collection, the #OOTD Collection. Jessica lives in Los Angeles where she teaches music to preschoolers part time and works as a TV actress and extra (how cool!). We love how Jessica paired her Katydid tank with a striped blazer and classic skinny jeans. She completed the look with a chic gold necklace. Check out her blog Jeans and a Teacup to see more photos of Jessica's Katydid #OOTD look!
The tank Jessica styled is just one of the many pieces of the new Katydid Collection #OOTD line. Find more fashionably fun tees and tanks on our website. Which one are you going to make your next #OOTD?

According to the Autism Society website, 1 in 68 babies in the United States are born with autism. The earlier it's diagnosed, the better. So that's why we have to raise awareness for autism. If left untreated, autism can cause delayed motor skills, difficulty carrying a conversation, and reasoning abilities. And it's not something that can be cured, only managed. So wearing these Katydid autism awareness can help put the puzzle pieces together.
This April, help raise awareness with these cute fashion items available on Katydid Collection's website.

Do you have your green outfit ready for St. Patrick's Day? Avoid getting pinched and rock your green in honor of St. Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland.

Fashion's color authority, Pantone, has announced the Spring 2015 color palette: "En Plein Air." The French title meaning "in the open air" is all about pastels and neutrals that evoke feelings of natural beauty and peace. You'll be seeing a lot of demure colors, not bright and bold. Folklore, floral art and nature served as the basis for Pantone's Spring 2015 color palette. This dreamy collection of colors is a neutral basis for starting your new wardrobe.
These minimalistic tones are meant to convey a sense of tranquility making them easy to wear and incorporate into your wardrobe. Pantone emphasizes the importance of discovering a zen attitude and disconnecting from technology as a calm escape this season. Obviously, it's hard to abandon the phones and computers that we rely on for everything. Just try to remember that there is a zone of calm in the world and you can find it in Pantone's Spring 2015 palette!

Another designer represented in this year's FGI of Dallas Rising Stars awards ceremony has a feminine and classic aesthetic that shows in her clothes. Dallas-based eveningwear designer Lucy Dang started her business about three years ago and became a quick sensation. She was named Texas Top Designer after winning the prestigious competition in 2013. Soon after that, Lucy Dang Dallas was recognized as the "Best Fashion Label" by the Dallas Observer.
Dang's couture style became commercial when she won the Belk Southern Designer Showcase competition and debuted her Lady by Lucy Dang collection in 2014. The Lady line of eveningwear is designed exclusively for Belk and is sold at the Belk flagships. The main Lucy Dang Dallas line is carried online and in 10 specialty boutiques (and counting!) around the world.
Before venturing out to start her own line, Dang worked for major fashion brands like Rebecca Taylor, Nicole Miller and Dillard's. This gave her the experience to make it on her own, and she's definitely doing a good job of that! Join FGI of Dallas this Thursday at the Galleria to see who will become the 2015 Rising Star in the Fashion category. Click here to get your ticket.
