Join the navy style

by United Blogs of Benetton on: Julio 4th, 2010

Always on top, navy style reminds me the idyllic fashion inspired by the purest Mediterranean Sea, a tribute to good taste, sun and life. Navy stripes are the boom of this summer. The first T-shirts appeared last winter, and they arrived gently to all stores and all kind of clothes. It’s a trend that is never out-of-date. For that reason, navy inspiration comes strong again, and there is always a hollow on our wardrobe.

Navy style is more than blue and white horizontal stripes. They aren’t so classic now and can be mixed out with prints, shining stars or different textures. We can see them everywhere… for example, in a T-shirt, the star garment, a basic on our wardrobe. It’s a very comfortable garment, easy to wear and combine, very chic and casual. Undoubtedly, navy shirt has a style for everything. We can combine it with anything: The most urgent, a jeans, from fit, wide, shorts, to skirts… But what I like the most and we see more on the street styles are cotton dresses, fresh and always comfortable, and don’t have to be like beach style.

It’s a style that amazes me, maybe because when I was a little girl I always had a navy shirt on my wardrobe in my summer times in Valencia and my walks through the French shore could have an influence on it. The people who know me knows that I feel a special weakness for this stripes that always cheer your face up and allow a huge range of different versions.

You will always be right with this look, and there is any doubt that is very stimulating, maybe because of the combination of colours it’s based on: white, blue and red. Wear it with heels, platforms or flat shoes. And add complements: hats, XXL size handbags or chain handbags with wide bracelets.

For winter and summer, this look could be adapted on a creative way to us. Join on it and be success!

 Sailing in heaven

by United Blogs of Benetton on: Junio 16th, 2010

From Ibiza to Formentera on a boat Trying to going party in Ibiza mid May is almost impossible. No big clubs opened, grandmas and grandpas overrun the island, and it isn’t hot as expected to lay all day long on the sand. Thanks to God there are some boats left: cheaper than in July or August, the experience to rent one of them for a day is really great.

Has anyone seen Dead calm? It’s a film starring Nicole Kidman where she and her husband are sailing on the Pacific and a survivor of a crashed boat who is rescued by them, turns to be a massive murderer…well, we feel a sensation of calm but at the same time, fragility and isolation. Except for the psycho part. In fact, you’re not in the middle of the ocean, so there’s no place to get lost yet until being found. Formentera is just 3.6 km far form Ibiza and the tour is delicious, even if you suffer seasickness.

You just have to chill, relax, and let go and the stress; touching the sea waves with your hand and let the wind guide you. It’s wonderful how this kind of boats can navigate without an engine, almost magical. And much more romantic than the fast ones. On board you have a world of services, such as music, suntan lotion, food and drinks. What else do you need?

The most beautiful and amazing beach of Formentera is Espalmador. You can reach the place only by the sea and the surroundings are as spectacular as the Caribbean Sea. Sand is white, water turquoise, and silence and stillness are priceless. A natural treasure.
