There’s A LOT going on this summer, trend-wise, but damn if the Spanish Influence looks aka The Flamenco Fashion Trend isn’t the best and hottest thing in the world. Every single designer showed their own approach and their own take on the flamenco fashion for 2016 SS, so there’s so many styles to chose from, so many angles to this dramatic look, so many versions of one trend it’s really a heaven for every sartorial lover who’s got a mood to play with clothes this summer.
From Dolce & Gabbana, to Proenza Schouler, to Miu-Miu, to Givenchy – all the big names are throwing an Angelina leg out there, and Ole, and a drama’esque approach to their definition of sexy #OOTD. It’s beautiful.
Ruffles, red, bold lips, bold eyes, flowers in your hair, buns, dramatic moves, legs long for days, strength, power, sex-appeal, massive earrings, opulence, drama, and a mix of every single angle of flamenco: grungy, 70s, glam, traditional, chic, sophisticated, smart, casual, sporty. Why stop and limit ourselves to a La Isla Bonita kinda approach?
I am loving this trend. Perhaps for me it strikes a little too close to home, it’s comfy, it’s soul-friendly et all, but I am adoring it, and would drape myself in flamenco inspired looks all summer long. From grungy, to boho, to 70s imma do them all. Red lips, and roses in my hair too.
Which brings me to the most importante point on today’s agenda:
How to wear the flamenco fashion trend?
You either do it big and loud with a ruffled red dress, lace, see-through, slits, curly hair, big earrings, heels. Or you just let one or two pieces be a statement and ooze a little bit of the flamenco vibe to the world. Sort of like a tease you know.
Embroideries, lace, see-through, ruffles work amazingly. You can wear them in skirts, tops, or dresses.
Polka dots and high waisted pants or skirts with a bit of ruffle and high slit are perfect.
Off the shoulders white ruffled tops that look fab paired with denim skirts or jeans.
All black looks that are over-the-top dramatic with key elemets such as lace or red lips or massive chandelier earrings.
The looks a flamenco trend has up its sleeve are infinite and it’s a trend worth trying and doing over and over again.
It’s drama my loves, and drama’s great every now and then. Especially when it comes with full on makeuop, bold lips and opulence.
