One of my favourite pieces for a business look are wide leg trousers, specially when they are high waisted. They make you look taller, stronger and ready to tackle anything. I paired a dusty pink pair with a black top, a printed scarf and snake print stilettos, which add a playful touch to the combo.
My everyday uniform these days can’t be complete without my high waist bottoms. This time, I paired black jeans with an olive green cropped shirt. The little splashes of tan resulted an understated cool look.
I’ve never really had the chance of going to a music festival. Jeez! I can even count the concerts I’ve been to with one hand alone. However, I will for once join the ample number of bloggers who put together festival worthy looks. As I have mentioned in my last post, I’ve been gravitating towards high waist denim shorts lately, and this post will be no exception!
I recently came across a very interesting and informative set of videos produced by Vogue UK, in collaboration with Alexa Chung, called Future of Fashion. I found them so refreshing and instructive about the inner workings of fashion that I wanted to share some of them with you, in hopes that it will enlighten us all about the real face of the industry and its power.
In Alexa’s words, “people are very dismissive of fashion in general, it comes across, in a cliched way, as considered frivolous or indulgent…and the general public don’t take it seriously enough.” Living in a country like El Salvador, I constantly find myself battling against the derogatory stereotypes surrounding the industry, and trying to vindicate its presence within a developing country, where there are always other more pressing, noble, and/or attention worthy matters.
I definitely encourage all of you guys to watch the video I’m leaving you with. Although it is a bit over an hour long, it is meant to help you draw your own conclusions about Fashion based on a better understanding of the industry.
