Arrows are everywhere right now, and if you’re looking for a way to wear ‘em, let me point you in the right direction (heh). —erica

LEVEL I: The detailing on the arm of those sunglasses? That’s a Karen Walker signature.

LEVEL II: Leave it to Charlotte Olympia to really go there—in a way that couldn’t be cooler, obviously.

LEVEL III: Now, here’s how to spice up a black dress, brought to you by Carven.

LEVEL IV: Totally insane and completely magical—that’s the Delfina Delettrez way.

It’s a real “Next Level” feast over here.

App Fab 13 Under-the-Radar Apps Designers Use Like Mad

image

Hope you have storage space on your phone ‘cause you’re going to want to start downloading. These are the apps that—besides good ol’ Instagram—our savvy and very busy designers swear by. —erica

1) Slack
“Slack makes workplace communication 100% more efficient. Try it, and you will never go back.” —Erin Wahed of Bande des Quatres

2) Over
“I rarely ever let anyone in on my secret love for this. It’s the perfect app to help create an Instagram post or an invitation or to add a little something extra to a photo.” —Kylie Nakao of Tarin Thomas

3) TeuxDeux
“I love TeuxDeux because it syncs with a desktop app and, for a freelancer/business owner, has been a lifesaver for organizing my to-do lists.” —Nate Poekert of Proper Assembly

4) SkyScanner
“This app tells you the cheapest flights all over the world within seconds—ideal for a travel addict like me. I love to search from New York to everywhere and see what’s available. I just booked a trip to Puerto Rico with my son after finding it’s cheaper to fly there than to Miami.” —Grace Chang of Ivory Row

5) Nike Training Club
“I love the 15 minute Get Focused workouts because they are hard, but short!” —Lyndsey Butler of Veda

7) Duolingo
“It’s a free language learning app. My boyfriend is Italian, so I have been practicing my Italiano while waiting for the G train.” —Nina Egli of Toujours Toi Family Affairs

8) WhatsApp
“WhatsApp is a lifesaver for me.  I can communicate with my artisans—and them with me—for free. Yay!” —Harper Poe of Proud Mary

9) Genius Scan
“I’m pretty intoGenius Scan—it lets me photograph documents and turn them into PDFs instantly.” —Molly Keough of Osei-Duro

10) Easily Do
“I could not imagine staying somewhat-organized about manufacturing deadlines, parent-teacher conferences, Mailchimp campaigns without it.” —Katherine McMillan of Pierrepont Hicks

11) PayByPhone
“I’m not a huge fan of apps, but I couldn’t do without PayByPhone! When I park in L.A., I never have money in my wallet, but with PayByPhone, I’m not worried anymore.” —Sandra Dejanovic of Happy French Gang

12) Songza
“I am allowed to say Songza?” —Kathryn Fortunato of Lizzie Fortunato
“SONGZA!” —Lizzie Fortunato of Lizzie Fortunato
[Ed: Lizzie’s BF Peter Asbill is one of the co-founders of this so-amazing music-streaming company.]

13) Longform
“It’s a long-form journalism aggregator that is curated by a great group of folks—almost every article you click on sucks you in. And! It works on the subway.” —Ellen Van Dusen of Dusen Dusen

A fitted pink Markus Lupfer tee that Joey, Jeffy, and Jamie all looove.

A black Eugenia Kim beret—because this is how deep people dress.

If you need proof that rocking chairs aren’t just for little old ladies on front porches, how’s about these two? There’s the smart-looking Félix from the Belgian designer Frédéric Richard and the less angular—but no less awesome—Savannah III designed by the Brit Jolyon Yates. They both, well, rock. —alex ronan
