Estilo en la pantalla: Megan Draper

by Be-Blogger España on: Mayo 14th, 2012

Uno de los primeros posts que escribí como blogger oficial para Benetton fue acerca de lo emocionada que estaba por el regreso de una de mis series favoritas: Mad Men. Esta temporada, la número 5, está siendo de mis favoritas. Y es que aparte de su siempre interesante trama, ahora podemos disfrutar del estilazo de una de sus protagonitas, Megan Draper, ex-recepcionista de Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce y nueva esposa de Don.

Con Betty fuera de escena (cosa que no me gusta, ¡ella es genial!) la nueva reina de estilo de la serie es ella, Jessica Paré. En la serie tiene 26 años y es la encarnación de como la moda de su tiempo va cambiando: adiós cinturas marcadas, hola minifalda trapecio.

Y es que es difícil olvidar cualquiera de los estilismos que Megan lleva en la serie, como el vestido que se pone para la fiesta sorpresa de Don, y que ya ha sido bautizado como el Zou Bisou Dress. Por suerte, hoy en día no hay estilo que se nos resista, y es fácil encontrar opciones para recrear nuestras inspiraciones favoritas. Los minivestidos rectos que Megan suele llevar en la serie parecen sacados de la nueva colección de Benetton, en colores alegres y cortes sencillos…¡y perfectos para este verano!

 Día a día con estilo, por Benetton

by Be-Blogger España on: Abril 20th, 2012

Cada día hacemos un montón de tareas, de modo tan mecánico que casi nos nos damos cuenta. Tomarnos una taza de café, bajar a la compra o mirar si tenemos mensajes en el móvil son actividades tan cotidianas como indispensables en nuestra rutina. United Colors of Benetton ha pensado en eso, y por eso han lanzado una nueva linea de accesorios que incluyen tazas de café, auriculares, shopping bags y fundas para el móvil. Hace poco recibí mi shopping bag en neón y mi funda para iPhone ¡y no puedo estar más contenta! Como es característico de la marca, el color inunda cada accesorio para convertir nuestro día a día en un estallido de colores alegres.

A partir de ahora ya no hay excusa para levantarse con malos ánimos o tener pereza a la hora de ir a comprar. Y que decir de lo agradecido que va a estar nuestro teléfono gracias a los mimos que le va a dar nuestra nueva funda de lana! El estilo se logra gracias a los pequeños detalles, ¿no creéis?

 Pinterest, la nueva addición

by Be-Blogger España on: Abril 17th, 2012

Que levante la mano quien no esté enganchado a ninguna red social. Nadie, ¿no? Las redes sociales son parte de nuestro día a día, las utilizamos para comunicarnos con nuestros seres queridos, para motivos de trabajo…las posibilidades son infinitas. Como blogger, son parte indispensable de mi vida, ¡no sabría que hacer sin ellas!

La última en llegar al mercado ha sido Pinterest. Creada en Marzo del 2010, su sencillo funcionamiento y fácil interacción la han convertido en una de las favoritas de bloggers, empresas y cualquiera que desee compartir todo tipo de imágenes con el mundo. Algunos afirman ya que es la mejor competencia directa de otra de las redes de imágenes más famosas, Tumblr.

 

¿Como funciona Pinterest? Muy sencillo. Creas carpetas, o boards, de distintas categorias, y vas archivando ahi dentro (haciendo pinning) las imágenes que vayas encontrando por internet. A través de seguir a nuevos contactos encontraremos nuevas imágenes e inspiración para nuestros propios boards. Como no podía ser de otra manera, United Colors of Benetton ya está en Pinterest, si pincháis en este enlace podréis encontrar cientos de fotografias inspiradoras y las nuevas novedades acerca de sus campañas. ¡Yo ya les sigo desde mi cuenta allí!

 

Con el paso del tiempo he descubierto un par de truquitos para sacar partido a nuestra cuenta en Pinterest, y por supuesto, los comparto con vosotros:

- No solo puedes hacer Pin a imágenes de internet, sino que puedes subir cualquier imagen que tengas almacenada en tu ordenador. Tan solo ve a Add > Upload a Pin y ya lo tienes. ¡La mejor opción para vaciar tu ordenador de cientos de archivos!
- Google Chrome ya ha lanzado su propia extensión para instalarla directamente en tu barra de navegación y poder hacer pin desde cualquier página en la que te encuentres. Se llama Pin it! y puedes instalarla aquí.

- También está la opción de publicar tus actualizaciones en Pinterest a través de Facebook y Twitter, y encontrar a tus contactos de otras redes sociales allí.

¿Y tú, ya eres adicto a Pinterest?

 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!

 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.

 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.

 The most fashionable guest

by United Blogs of Benetton on: Mayo 10th, 2010

The wedding season is starting right now……and as the last years, I have to go to a wedding this summer, like a lot of you, girls. Are you looking for a model? Before choosing your style, you have to pay attention to a lot of factors in order to make your search easier. These are the secrets to get an actual and perfect look, without looking weirdly serious and becoming the most fashionable guest.

As soon as I received the invitation I accounted for the hour and the kind of celebration. Morning wedding or evening wedding? This is the first detail I have to account for. If it’s morning wedding I can dress the most spectacular pamela or touched, but never a night dress.

In my case, it is an evening wedding, so as a guest I am, I will choose a large dress, like the red carpet style, an unique gauze or satin design, with a little siren tail and jewels details on the cleavage. My role to follow is the actress Penélope Cruz, an icon with a score of 10. An event so romantic as this deserves a dress will match.

The dress colour is another detail I take care the most. White is reserved only for the bride, so don’t come to the wedding of your best friend or your future sister in law with a white dress because it will mean being rude to her. Another colour that you prohibited in wedding protocol is black. Yes, it is a night colour, but it isn’t correct for a wedding. For that reason, I start to look for a cheerful colour. I like pink or violet tones, but red is my favourite. It is stimulating, striking, appropiate for an event like this, and on this summery days. Without any doubt, a perfect choice.

The choice is done: large dress, red, average cleavage. It is a church wedding, so it isn’t appropiate to wear a very open cleavage. The appropiate thing on the ceremony is wearing a chal half-transparent, in the same tone to hide your shoulders. But… keep your sexiest side for the dancing hour. Like accesories, a black clutch, black slippers and simple bun.

Runways are laying down glamour this summer 24 hours per day, and they are an example to see the looks. But, we aware of things like tone, length, shape and the fabric of your dress if you want to shine, but the most important thing is: never hide yourself and look as you really are. Be yourself.

 Fuencarral, the 1000 styles street in Madrid

by United Blogs of Benetton on: Abril 21st, 2010

My favourite area in Madrid is Fuencarral street. My whole world is there: shopping, pleasant surroundings, good stores, the best clothes, the latest styles, the most advanced trends, and the best friends… who are lucky to live in that zone, in old houses adapted to the top styles nowadays.


When I enter to Fuencarral street from Gran Via, another of the most special streets in Madrid, it’s like entering into a new world in another city. Beside it’s Chueca, slightly above it’s Tribunal, and if you continue walking thru, you will find Malasana. Three neighbourhoods where life is different, music changes, the bars and the atmosphere are as cosmopolitan as you could imagine.


Lucky me, Fuencarral had just been set only for pedestrians, and now you don’t have to walk through the little sidewalk, where on rush days you had to walk dodging everyone. The street ever had looked as beautiful as now…

At the moment, everything looks more beautiful. With this change, the stores seems as new, and the few cafes or restaurants that are at the beginning of the street are now more visible. But if you wish to take a coffee or something like that, after a good shopping evening, I recommend you going to Malasana (if you like an offhand plan) or going to Chueca (if you are looking for a modern plan).

After visiting the stores of this street, you have to stop at Mercado de Fuencarral. At the moment, it’s different from the past, but there are a lot of stores inside, offering the trendiest clothes of the new season. You can find everything: complements, T shirts, dresses, sweatshirts… and shoes! There are special reserved spaces with all the models.

Just before the market, walking up from Gran Via, we have a little square where we can take a coffee after a hard shopping evening. But, in the rush days, it’s like an impossible mission.

Your clothing style doesn’t mind at all. Fuencarral has from Hip Hop clothes and japanese trends, passing through laylike fashion, that I personally love, Indie style (perfect for the concerts I use to go), and if you want to dress more stylish, you can, because there is no one ruling style, everything is mixed.

I remember have seen the most striking styles in this street. My favourite was a woman with pink dyed hair who looked good with her dressing style. She looked very good. I don’t know how she did yet. A mistery.

That’s the magic of Fuencarral, where everyone is unique and special. You have to go!
