FASHION FROM ABROAD: She Sells Seashells

Fashion From Abroad

Costa Rica is known for its exceptionally beautiful beaches. From Manuel Antonio and Jaco on the Central Pacific coast to Puerto Viejo and Cahuita on the Caribbean coastline, a sandy beach can be found in almost all directions within this tropical country. On some of the pacific paradises of Costa Rica, you can find an abundance of exquisite shells—there is even a beach named for its plentiful shell collection. Playa Conchal is one of the most unique beaches in Costa Rica, with a floor covered in shells instead of sand.

Today’s Fashionista has taken advantage of her sandy surroundings and created accessories out of seashells. Her hair braid is bedazzled with seashells and her necklace is straight off the shore. The shells help create a very natural bohemian vibe. With these shell-incorporating accessories, today’s Fashionista has obviously spent some time at la playa (as we call it). This unique seashell trend can be mimicked with this natural shell necklace—or you can head to the shore yourself and find some treasures.

This beach bound Fashionista is wearing a coral fringed strapless top, perfect for today’s warm weather, and black denim pants. This fringe tank with these black H&M jeans serve as an alternative and similar look. The outfit is accompanied by a brown leather messenger bag and beach sandals. To tell the truth, who wouldn’t be ready for the beach at all times in Costa Rica? With summer around the corner for all of you “New Yorkers,” be sure to take a hint from this boho beached out Fashionista. She is strictly shoreline bound…possibly to sell some seashells by the seashore.
