Go comfortable to sales

by United Blogs of Benetton on: Julio 1st, 2010

Sales have just landed in Madrid and I’m full of happiness thinking what new things I’m going to buy in my favourite shops and brands stores.
I have a list larger than Santa Claus‘s wishlist. I live at a 4th floor but it could touch down the street…
The bad thing is I’ll have to decide along this list what I want more and leave the rest for another occassion.

Sales are great, but we have to be ready. You need to dress like if you were going to a war, because you’ll have to look for clothes on shelves and racks on stores full of people and I’m not made of iron… I will get tired.
To the end of the day, after a long sales journey, I’m like a sport woman just arrived from the gym. It’s really important to wear comfortable.

The main point is feeling comfortable. Nothing of strained looks that are uncomfortable to stand with for a long time. A normal sweater is valid for a day. Better if it’s thinner, and it will look great combined with shorts.

Don’t think about heels, erase this idea from your mind. Leave them at home. Heels are uncomfortable. It’s better to go with a beautiful flat shoe, like a dancer shoe, nautical shoe or similar models. I love buckskin shoes, with tassels on the front and a attractive manly look.

We have to insist again on the thinner clothes we have on our wardrobes. Nothing can disturb you when you’re looking for clothes or when you’re in the fitting room.

A nice boilersuit with flowers printings will solve the problem of pulling off thousand of layers of clothes to prove a dress or a jeans. Better with less things. We lose less time. But a thin cardigan will be ok if the air conditioning of the stores is high.

And if we want to go comfortable and fashionable at the same time, we can choose a Victorian style shoes, simply, basic, that will avoid any inconvenience during all the day. A modern look combining it is our personal key. I like being striking.

 The best summer friends

by United Blogs of Benetton on: Junio 25th, 2010

They never has gone from our wardrobe. Even cold, rain, nor platforms shut them down. Dancer shoes or french shoes… also in Spain we have a lot of different names to call this kind of shoes. It’s a classic that is imposing one of the trends of the current season. They’re comfortable, nice and flat!, and this summer they’re on stage full of printings and a lot of really wonderful things.

Dancer shoes wear during all the year, a basic on our wardrobe, but if we have an special moment to show the models is the arrival of the hot summer. Leave the winter boots and put on this temporal and comfortable shoe. You have a different kind of dancer shoe for every look. Bet for the colour, for the animal and flower prints, for the crow’s foot or spots, and for the most original materials, like charol or buckskin.

If you like fashion but staying comfortable, choose a dancer shoes by day. I like more with a jeans to go a casual way, ideal to go shopping. Also choose them by night, with a braces mini-dress. The perfect look to show in a summer party, like this parties you won’t end until the morning. And why not, choose them to go to the beach. They combine fine with any style, from retro to smart looks.

Fashion designers show them up on fashion shows, and they introduce in their collections as an essential complement. There are a lot who uphold the feminity of the flat shoes. For example, Donna Karan has an open battle with Manolo Blahnik o Jimmy Choo, this ones lovers of the heel. And not only designers, celebrities join this trend too… Brigitte Bardot on the 50’s, Audrey Hepburn on the 60’s and Kate Moss on 2000 have been one of the most loyal followers. Now, they all wear it.

This summer say “I want” this comfortable, cheap and versatile shoe.
