Fashion in Barcelona

Friday, December 31, 2010

Yes, DH and I stand out as Americans. We're both wearing jeans, he has a ski jacket and while I have a short black trench, I do wear white sneakers (with red rhinestones and a tattoo style heart and rose on the back). But we both have the scarves. Scarves are everywhere! Even when people are inside, they keep on their scarves! Men, women, children - scarves are THE fashion accessory. Wrapped, tied, loose, floating, tucked - scarves!

Women are also into tights or leggings - always with boots, often with long sweaters or tunics but just as often with short shorts. And, as I said, boots - usually with heels. So yes, I stand out with my sneaks.

Sweaters are also in - pullovers, rarely cardigans. Few hats. Dark colors, mostly. Then the occasional turquoise coat, or pink tie and pocket square.

We'll see what NYE brings in terms of fashion.

    I adore scarves. And Madrid has beautiful ones- my sister got a bunch on her Europe trip and I steal one for a year at a time until she visits and takes it back

    Doing lots of scarves - both for warmth and to brighten my look, since my jacket is black and most of my tops are white.

I love fashion - sort of like painting the blank canvas that we are!

Not doing the boots, though - I can't manage heels at all, especially for my 15,000 - 20,000 step days!

    I like the sound of this fashion trend. Except for the shorts that is.

    Maybe you should buy a scarf as a memento of your trip! Something with a Gaudi inspired design.

    Love love love fashion: one silly thing a day is my motto (to relieve my boring business suits . . . !!).

So: thanks for the update. I'll keep working my scarves!! And I'm really into the little boots thing too -- generally with opaque tights.
