STYLE ADVICE: 2017 Meets Frida Kahlo

STYLE ADVICE: 2017 Meets Frida Kahlo

The weather in Spain is finally transitioning from the frozen tundra into the beautiful, cool, and breezy spring! This transition means it’s time to break out the thin jackets, booties, and ripped jeans—pieces everyone should have in their closet! Since spring is among us, it also means it’s time to start moving towards floral patterns and bright colors instead of just staying with earth tones and more basic pieces.

For this month’s style advice, I used a Fashionista with unique taste in clothing to portray one of my favorite trends of the season—embroidery. Embroidery spices up any outfit just because of the beautiful detailing that each piece has. It gives an outfit a more unique and cultural feel just by adding one piece as a focal accessory or clothing item. Today we used inspiration from the widely known Frida Kahlo due to her use of bright colors and prints. My Fashionista has a Mexican background and I love how this jacket brings her culture out for everyone to see. It’s such a unique statement item that can be paired with a dress, skirt, or jeans.

For the outfit, she paired the jacket with a pair of black ripped jeans and gray booties while keeping the accessories minimal but also unique. She mixed tones of silver and gold with her choker and her rings because she thought it would add a “different” touch, and since her rings also have different textures, it gives the whole look a rustic vibe.

For you to recreate this look, all you need is an embroidered statement piece: a jacket, blouse, skirt, or even a pair of jeans—and basic pieces that you have in your closet for day to day wear. It’s easy to recreate and super stylish, so get ready to rock your inner Frida and show off those embroidered pieces for the springtime!
