Graphic Designer Crystal Zapata recently launched her own zine, So Nice! (so-nice-zine.tumblr.com), which profiles 16 artists such as Swedish illustrator and furniture maker Johanna Berg and Zai Najera, founder of the Mexico City-based "modern-day girl culture" publication Superhero Mag. The 21-year-old's keen eye for composition—being put to good use during her internship at Leo Burnett's Department of Design—is apparent in both her work and attire, the latter consisting these days of a mix of 70s and 90s touchstones and "as many wide-legged pants as possible." Recently she's let music be her sartorial guide; Sister Sledge and easy-listening tunes from Brazil are on heavy rotation. "So I guess that translates to wearing bell-bottoms some days and wearing denim cutoffs on others," she says. Check out more of Zapata's wide-ranging wardrobe at crystalzapata.tumblr.com and on Instagram via @crystalzapata. See details of her look below—including her cool geometric socks.
