¿QUE ES SPORTY CHIC?

La combinación de tendencias actuales con ropa deportiva o cómoda. Es perfecto para esos días en los que queremos estar cómodos, pero al mismo tiempo, con mucho estilo.

WHAT IS SPORTY CHIC?
The combination of current trends with sportswear or comfortable clothes. It’s perfect for those days when we want to be comfortable, but at the same time, with a lot of style. 

Un básico ultra importante para mí de este estilo sporty chic, es un buen par de zapatillas. Como se pueden dar cuenta, soy adicta a las zapatillas de Adidas, no solo por sus diseños originales, pero también por lo cómodas que son; son casi una nube. Me encanta combinar los diseños más coloridos con piezas básicas como un par de jeans y una camiseta, o una mini falda y el básico v-neck blanco.

An ultra-important basic for me of this sporty chic style, is a good pair of sneakers. As you can tell, I am addicted to Adidas shoes, not only for their original designs, but also for how comfortable they are; it’s like walking on a cloud. I love to combine the most colorful designs with basic pieces such as a pair of jeans and a T-shirt, or a mini skirt and a basic white v-neck. 

Agregar piezas inesperadas como lo es una correa peplum, es un toque divertido que puede elevar cualquier look sporty chic.

Adding unexpected pieces like a peplum belt is a fun touch that can elevate any sporty chic look.

How to Style a Striped Kimono

To me, basics never get old. As I’ve said many, many times before, a tee and your favorite pair of jeans are the perfect canvas for an amazing outfit. My style is all about layering and having one statement piece that brings all the other basics together. Read More

How to Mix Prints

Gingham and polka dots might not be your average combination. But last week when I walking through Zara, I couldn’t help but think about how it would look together.  Read More

How to Wear Black in the Summer

I feel like I need to start this post by citing quote: “Only the strong wear black in summer,” haha. Last week, when I browsing through the internet to find a quote to caption an Instagram picture, I found these words that just resonated with me. If you are the type of person that only wears black, you will definitely understand why! Read More

Summer Outfit Idea: How to Style Shorts

Shorts where never really in my essentials list until a few months ago. To be honest, I used to dread wearing shorts because I felt my thighs looked huge in them. By now, I know that wearing shorts is a combination of confidence and finding the right length and fit, which I talk about in these posts (here and here). Today I’m writing this post to bring you 4 tips to spice up your shorts look this summer!

Flared Jeans are the New Black

I feel like jeans are a staple piece for every season. I’ve always been such a jean fanatic, I sometimes have to force myself to use something other than denim. That being said, for the past few years I’ve neglected every type of jean that was not a skinny cut. Read More

WHAT TO WEAR FOR THE 4TH OF JULY

I might not be American, but ever since I can remember my family has always been influenced by american culture (I also studied in an american school here in Panama). Most of my summers growing up where spent in Houston, where my grandma’s BFF lives, and we would always enjoy a good american style BBQ by the pool — amazing memories.  Read More

Boho Embroidered Blouse + Marble Skirt

Whenever I wear prints, I like to go all out. I am the typical all or nothing kind of girl. Either I go all black, or create a fun combination that is totally not expected of me (I am the typical fashion industry gal always dressed in black head to toe). For this outfits, which I wore to a fashion event a couple months ago, I decided to mix an embroidered boho blouse with an old, but loved marble print skirt. Both pieces are from Zara. Even though the styles are completely different from one another, I feel like they complement each other. The skirt is very modern and sleek, which makes the boho blouse look less summer and more night time appropriate. I love that this outfit is a statement piece on its own, it has personality and speaks for itself which is something I look for when buying clothes.

#StylistTip: I decided to wear a pump with a pointed toe because they make your legs look slimmer, as opposed to a pump with a rounded toe.

Styling a Pair of Culottes

Whether you call these pants culottes, gauchos or even cropped palazzos, these loose cropped trousers have undoubtedly crossed your sight!

When I first saw them I was very on the fence about them. Not because they are a little tricky to style, but because I thought they weren’t flattering at all. Read More

How to give a Little Black Dress a Twist

My love for little black dresses runs very deep. I am kind of ashamed to accept that I have over ten in my closet right now. But, as I said in an older post, a LBD is an iconic piece that we should all own. (Yes, that is kind of my excuse for owning so many black dresses.) Read More
