The league proposed for the draft to have 10 rounds, per The Athletic which is five more than the league’s rules require. It included other restrictions to which the players objected.
In the proposal, the league would have the draft split into two five-round portions, according to The Athletic. The slot values for picks in the first five rounds would be equal to what they were in 2019. For rounds six through 10, slot values would be 50% of last year’s value. Teams would also be allowed to sign five undrafted players for $20,000, the maximum bonus a player is allowed to receive. Teams could also sign as many players as they wanted for $5,000 or less.
The looming threat in these negotiations is a draft with even fewer rounds, something the players are against.
MLB could still send a different proposal. In March, the two sides agreed to a broad framework for the draft that set parameters at somewhere between five and 40 rounds, with a commitment to sticking to the 2019 draft’s slot values. As of now, the draft is still scheduled to take place in June.
This is one micro-trend I’ve been bookmarking for a while now, curious as to if it would really become something. As a fashion editor, this is something I do a lot. It’s similar to investigative work (except no one’s lives are at stake) where we get a lead on something, follow it for a while, and see if anything larger comes of it. When it finally does, you end up reading about it here and today, the trend I’m finally excited and confident enough to report on is pleated miniskirts.
After seeing dozens of fashion girls dabbling with pleated minis, I figured it was time to start breaking down the why and how backing the gradual success of this skirt trend. It’s safe to assume that when you see or think of pleated miniskirts, private school uniforms, tennis, and cheerleaders come to mind, but once you see the various ways fashion girls have been styling them, you won’t even remember what your school uniform used to look like.
The nature of this skirt gives off a preppy vibe that you might not be used to incorporating into your personal style, but with the right counterparts and the 13 styling tips ahead, I have the utmost faith that you’ll be able to tackle the trend. From cardigans to cowboy boots, get ready to learn how to style my new favorite skirt trend of the year and shop some of the coolest versions below.
Summer is undeniably shaping up to look and feel a lot different this year. However, just because we are all spending our time indoors doesn’t mean the fashion connoisseurs of the world aren’t still trying to drip. One of the most popular jewelry trends that bubble all throughout summer is anklets. Usually, they are worn to add that extra edge to a swimsuit look or simple sandal situation, but now that inside clothes are the new norm, socks are replacing shoes and anklets are being styled on top of them.
It might seem a tad frivolous at first to put an anklet over a sock, but when you’re sitting on your couch in the same gray sweatpants for the third day in a row wishing you could somehow try harder without actually trying, you’ll remember this story, put on your anklet, and experience a temporary feeling of happiness you didn’t even know you needed.
So far, we’ve been eyeing the trend in three main categories: Nike socks with chain anklets, bright-colored socks with beaded anklets, and sheer socks with pearl anklets. Either one or all of these duos is bound to strike a chord with you and once you see how inexpensive this new summer styling tip is, you’ll probably end up stocking up on all three variations.
The rise of Nike tube socks on Instagram is unlike anything we’ve seen before. It’s as if someone cued all the fashion girls on the app to wear and post them all at the same time, instantly birthing a new trend. Regardless, the affordable logo-adorned socks are everywhere and chain anklets just so happen to make them look twice as good.
Obsessed with color? Then this duo is for you. Take any bright pair of socks and layer a crafty beaded anklet atop for a kitschy summertime look. I haven’t spotted any on Instagram yet, but I am betting we’ll see tons of this combo paired with Birkenstock-type sporty sandals sooner rather than later.
Sheer socks with darling pearl-adorned pearl anklets? Yes, that’s pretty much an Instagram moment waiting to happen. If your style airs a tad more on the polished side and Nike socks really don’t seem to have a place in your “aesthetic,” then this is the sock-and-anklet coupling for you.
