How to Dress Like A Stylish Spaniard

April 27, 2020
Spaniards have a certain flair for life and you can see it with their style. There's something distinct about the way they dress, and the pieces they choose for their wardrobes. You can say it's a little bit bohemian or even a little bit flashy. Either way, when you go to Spain, you'll see the difference. They don't dress up as they do in Italy and France, which houses cities that are considered the fashion capitals of the world. Here, they have their own distinct taste. So much so that you'd want to emulate it. And here are the pieces you'll need to do so.

Snakeskin Anything

While Paris as the leopard spots, Spain has the snakeskin. It's undoubtedly the most famous pattern in this country and you can find it on a dress, a purse, a pair of shoes, a belt, and more. In fact, when you go out into the nightlife scene, there's 99.9% chance you'll see someone sporting a snakeskin piece. However, with how the Spaniards sport it, don't overdo the pattern. One or two elements of your outfit are enough to uphold the style. Going full-on in head-to-toe snakeskin will not only look tacky, but you'll literally look like an eyesore of a snake.

Fluffy Fur

Staying within the animal kingdom, you also go for something furry just like how the Spaniards do it. Key pieces include a fur coat, a fur vest, or a nice pair of fur-lined boots. It's no secret that Spanish people are passionate people, and oftentimes, that leads them to unleash their wild sides. So unsurprisingly, they're drawn to such styles like snakeskin and fur. However, with animal rights becoming a major issue nowadays, alternative or even faux materials have become the norm. You're better off investing in a faux fur item than one made out of real fur.

Lace-up Boots

With regards to footwear, there are essentially two kinds that women will undoubtedly have in their wardrobes. One of them is the lace-up boot. Spanish fashionistas love them a good pair of lace-up boots. They pair them with anything, from skinny jeans and short shorts to leather skirts and flowing day-dresses. It's not exactly a versatile pair, but the Spaniards have practically changed that. For them, a good pair of lace-up booties are just as essential as an LBD or a white shirt. And you can get them in different styles too, such as sleek ones lined with fur or your more industrial-looking Doc Martens.

Sassy Scarves

Though Spain is mostly known and visited for its overall warm weather, it still gets very cold here. And as a result, the scarf has become one of the most essential pieces for any fashionista's wardrobe here. It's one of those accessories that simply completes a look, whether you're going for something more casual or classy. During the day, you can for the cool cotton and linen kinds that pair best with leather jackets and skinny jeans.

Bright Colored Pants

By now you must be thinking, "Do the Spanish wear any colour at all?" And the answer to that question is a resounding yes! But, you might be surprised as to how they were colour! In New York, you're more likely to see them sporting colourful outerwear. In Italy, a monochromatic colour scheme is mostly the way to go. But here in Spain? It's all about a colourful pair of pants. Think bright neon-hued skinny jeans, or a nice pair of slacks in the most sophisticated shades of red, burgundy, royal blue, and more.

Denim Skirts

But what if you're not confident enough to sport some colourful pairs of pants? Also, you're more of skirt-type of gal anyways! Well, don't fret! Here in Spain, denim skirts are just as popular. You may think this particular piece is so late 90s/early 2000s, but in this European country, it's become a classic timeless piece. Spanish women love sporting them in different lengths, different shades of denim blue, and pairing them with different pieces. A classic would be a mini with your lace-up boots. Or if you want a classier look, midi-length with a nice pair of flats will do too!

Summery Sundresses

In Spain, if you don't have a nice sundress, then you're not stylish enough! It's another one of those pieces that have become a must for anyone who wants to stay on-trend and look on fleek whilst in the country. Of course, during the summer, this has become a go-to style staple. During the hotter seasons of the year, you'll see countless women walking around in their flowing sundresses, looking as dainty as ever. But what about for fall and winter? Wear a sweater underneath or nice denim or leather jacket over them and you're good to go too!
