FASHION FROM ABROAD: A Midwesterners Twist On Invierno

Fashion From Abroad

Invierno is the Spanish word for winter and that is the current season here in Seville. Invierno to Spaniards means an average temperature of 55 degrees, which Midwesterners would find humorous. At home, this weather means skirts or short sleeves after a long season of covering up. Here, the Fashionistas are still bundling up for their evening attire.

I spotted this Midwest-native Fashionista baring her long legs in celebration of the new winter ideals. Although her leg-baring outfit may have appeared a little crazy to the locals, I thought she took great advantage of these new winter temperatures with panache.

The first piece of the outfit that stands out is her dot designed flare skirt. This skirt is perfect for a night on the town, but can also be dressed down with flats or half calf boots. It is both winter and spring appropriate and she wears it very well in a more winter appropriate look. As I mentioned, winter here is a loose term for someone from the Midwest, so the top half of her outfit suits the season very well. On top, she is wearing a black half sleeve crop top with a black leather jacket. The leather jacket adds a wonderful winter touch to the look and complements her chic skirt.

There is the perfect amount of edginess in her attire that I couldn’t help but admire. First, the leather jacket is always a sure bet for a sharp touch. Second, we have her Rebecca Minkoff Mini 5 Zip bag. This gray Rebecca Minkoff bag gives off a glinting edge while not distracting from the overall look. While these bags aren’t exactly cheap, they are practical and complement just about any outfit! Lastly, we have her taupe booties. Neutral colored booties are a staple for the winter season. They are stylish and can be matched with a variety of colors.
