The White List

Hello,

As you may have noticed, white is the color of spring and summer (as well as for fall). I guess you’ve read about this a couple of times and are now familiar with tons of ways on wearing white. That’s why the main purpose of this week’s posts is to share with you some quick ideas on how to combine this trending color with other spring-summer trends.

The White List:
  1. Shoes – White shoes are a must for the season. I love the chunky ones but the pointy-low-heel shoes are so IN.
  2. Maxi-Dress – Ideal for those summer days. Add a headband like those in Dolce & Gabbana‘s spring-summer ’13 collection
  3. Sleek skirt – Pair it with a peplum or ruffled blouse and you have the perfect outfit for the office.
  4. LWD – Add some gold and silver jewelry to your Little White Dress to create a minimalistic look.
  5. The Short Suit – Wear your blazer as a cape (as in the photo) if the weather’s too hot, it will give your outfit that elegant lady-like look.
Hope you liked it!
Which one’s your favorite trend from The White List?

How to: Wear White with Kristina Bazan

Hello!

So we’re still in April and my list of fashionistas keeps on going. So I’ve decided to put Kristina Bazan’s (from Kayture) outfits as inspiration on today’s topic: how to wear white. From Geneva, Switzerland, Kristina is a 19 year old top-fashion blogger behind the renowned blog called Kayture . She started her blog back in 2011 due to her passion for the fashion industry. She decided to name her blog that way because in kindergarten she was called by the first letter of her name, back then when she lived in the USA. So she decided to use “Kay” for Kristina and “ture” which stands for couture and geniusly ended up with Kayture.

Her polished and chic style reflects her big admiration for Gabrielle Chanel, Karl Lagerfeld, Louis Vuitton, Miu Miu and Dior. Now you can understand why she dresses so chic!

I really admire the work of this blogger, handling school and a blog is not easy. That’s why I totally really agree with her when she wrote: “Destiny is for losers; it is just a stupid excuse to wait for things to happen instead of making them happen.” Being in school, having to do photoshoots every week and travelling around the world looking so chic everyday have made her one of my favorite bloggers.

Watch and learn how she wears this season’s trend: WHITE. Hope you enjoy it and don’t forget to check out her blog for more fashion tips and trends.

How are you wearing white this season? Let me know via Instagram using #wearwhite hashtag and I’ll post your pictures by the end of this week on my blog.

Xx,
Alejandra García

Hola,

Seguimos en Abril y mi lista de fashionistas sigue creciendo. Así que hoy decidí poner a Kristina Bazan como ejemplo e inspiración del tema de hoy: cómo usar el Blanco. De Ginebra, Suiza y con tan sólo 19 años, Kristina es la top bloggera de moda detrás del famosísimo blog llamado Kayture. Kristina empezó su blog en el 2011 debido a su gran pasión por la moda. Decidió ponerle ese nombre a blog debido a que cuando era pequeña y vivía en Estados Unidos, la llamaban por la primer letra de su nombre. Así que decidió juntar “Kay” de Kristina y “ture” de la palabra couture y formó Kayture.

Su estilo elegante y de alguna manera ‘limpio’ refleja su gran admiración por personas como Gabrielle Chanel, Karl Lagerfeld, Louis Vuitton, Miu Miu y Dior. Ahora podemos entender porqué se viste tan padre siempre.

En realidad admire mucho el trabajo de Kristina, el tener clases y además llevar un blog no es nada fácil. Por esto mismo me identifiqué mucho con ella cuando escribió “El destino es para perdedores, es una escusa tonta el esperar a que las cosas sucedan en vez de hacer algo para que éstas sucedan.” Llevar una vida de estudiante, tener que hacer photoshoots cada semana y además viajar por todo el mundo viéndote siempre así de chic son las razones que hacen que Kristina sea una de mis bloggeras favoritas.

Ahora solo queda ver y aprender de cómo ella usa una de las tendencias de esta temporada: el BLANCO. Espero que les guste y no olviden visitar su blog para encontrar más tips y tendencias de moda.

¿Cómo estás usando el blanco esta temporada? Házmelo saber por medio de Instagram usando el hashtag #wearwhite . Al finalizar la semana estaré publicando tu foto en mi blog.

Besos,
Alejandra García
