Bye bye squares, hello stripes

by United Blogs of Benetton on: Junio 28th, 2010

I always feel sad when I have to say goodbye to some clothes of my wardrobe. Specially those I use to wear day by day and I like the most because they bring back to me memories of past days. But it is hopeless, always arrives the moment to renew the wardrobe because some clothes are out of date.

After almost two years with squares as the trend on my style and wardrobe, it is time to renew and say welcome to stripes. Stripes are the new print, they are everywhere and if you’ve never seen them, you’re living in a different world far away from this.

With stripes I get more sophisticated styles, and my friends have seen the real change. Before I was wearing more casual and now stripes get me dressed with other clothes, even with a trench I had forgotten on my wardrobe and I didn’t use to wear because I thought it didn’t combine with anything. Stripes make more stylish looks. They look really good to be basic…

Before I preferred rock and rebel looks. Looks with plaid shirts and tshirts of my favourite groups. I had all, from Sex Pistols to Ramones, I loved them, I went to all of their concerts really fashionable and my groups were always with me.

I have seen that I could get this style with stripes, but it is more sophisticated. I left my music tshirts to have short dresses combines with fit jeans and high heel boots. Black and white coloured stripes, my favourite colours.

So… I’m sad to say goodbye to the squares on my wardrobe, but I’m sure they will be back in a few seasons because they never get out of date.

Everything in fashion is cyclic, today are stripes, tomorrow spots and then… let’s see.

 Let’s go to the park!

by United Blogs of Benetton on: Junio 11th, 2010

University classes are ending right now and I’m going to the park to enjoy a well deserved rest, after an exhausting year between tests and several jobs. In Madrid we’re lucky to have a gorgeous park, the Parque del Retiro, set on the city center, in one of the noble parts of Madrid.

The Retiro is one of the favourites places of my friends group. We go there every week on summer. But, we cannot go any way… We take care of us to look beautiful in any occasion. These are my favourite looks, the ones I recommend you to go to the park:

I love stripes for this summer. I see them everywhere and I’ve made some acquisitions for my wardrobe. Even it seems like a sailor’s wardrobe more than a young university spanish girl. I feel very well with them, and if it’s possible my choice is navy blue and white like a combination.

To play with a top or a blouse I choose a high ending shorts to show my legs and going comfortable to deal with the hot climate. Also I pick up my cardigan but is it’s cold later.

The stripes rules this summer. To look beautiful at the park a lot of my friends combine really good the stripes with other living colours to highlight more. They like to be seen but… going so wonderful and beautiful like them, who doesn’t like to be seen?

French lolita’s style is one of our favourites. Red and navy blue or black. Two colours which join very well and only need a high white shoes and a manoletina shoes to look very beautiful.

But not everything could be stripes because we could get bored always wearing the same thing. For this reason we decided choosing a smooth top, like this good looking kind blue, that after we can combine with skirts and black shorts. And to look divine, a leather stripes slippers have to be in our look.

Although, when we’re going to the Parque del Retiro or similars, we like practising sports, as riding bike o skating. For this occasions we also choose a very careful look because we must go and look smart.
