Welcome back to Spring in Segovia, everyone!
I don’t know about you, but Spring it’s by far my favourite season to dress up for! I can’t wait for these rainy days to finish to get rid of my coat and black clothes and finally wear something more light and colorful. There’s nothing better than going out for a walk in the sun with only your thin leather or jean jacket and a little skirt! Until it’s after sunset and the sudden cold reminds me that we’re in the mountains, not the Canary Islands, I then start regretting my choice of attire.
We also have to make the most out of this warm weather right now and show off our best outfits before finals start and we will be forced to stay home studying. To help you, here’s the new edition of what to wear in Segovia! In this edition we won’t only be showing you our current favorite fashion icons but we will also be showing you some amazing online stores so that you can make your outfit dreams a reality 🙂
As I told you in the last ‘What to Wear in Segovia’, I love walking around our little town seeing the different styles and outfits that IE students pull out, as almost all of them are very different from the other and from what I was used to seeing back home. I really enjoy looking around and finding inspiration in what people are wearing or in their makeup, to then modify it and make it mine.
Lately, I have discovered that Madrid offers infinite possibilities and inspiration regarding fashion, so I highly recommend to go have a walk around Malasaña or Sol and pay attention to people’s style: the amount of interesting combinations you’ll find is impressive!
Since we can’t be going to Madrid every morning to find some fashion inspiration, here are two of my favorite instagram influencers whose outfits inspire me on the daily. Check them out for some new outfit ideas!
If you want some other inspiration Instagram is usually my go to. Here’s two accounts I’ve been loving lately!
Matilda Djerf (@matildadjerf)
Matilda is a Swedish fashion blogger and influencer who created her own clothing brand called Djerf Avenue (@djerfavenue) that focuses on ethical production other than style.
She also uses her influence on the public to share positive messages such as being confident in yourself and how to overcome a traumatic life experiences as she did with her ectopic pregnancy and eating disorder.
Emna Sellimi (@emnitta)
I ran into this profile on a boring day of quarantine last spring, and I fell in love with the vibe of this Tunisian blogger. For some reasons her feed just sends me very positive vibes. Even though she’s not famous, in fact she only has 38 thousand followers, I think it’s an account worth seeing. In particular, I love the eccentric combinations of colours she dares to use with nonchalance and the symmetries and shapes she creates in her pictures.
As Segovia can’t really be defined as a famous shopping destination, I’ve started to give up trying to find something I like in Tara (I dare you to do so) and devoted myself to online shopping.
In case you are also looking to make some deals online here’s some websites you should definitely check out. I avoided mentioning the super well known Shien, Asos, Zara, Vestiaire Collective and Vinted, which are still worth a look, hoping to make you discover some websites you were not aware of.
Nasty Gal was founded as a simple eBay store selling vintage clothing, and now it has become a huge e-commerce platform where you can find vintage, retro and new clothes for every taste! The prices are generally low and the style is very particular. Have a look into it if you want to add a unique touch to your outfits!
P.s. Right now they’re having a 55% off every item! Don’t miss out on it!
This website it’s a good compromise between quality and price, a bit more expensive than the previous one but the clothes are made out of very good materials. Also, you can see and buy outfits directly rather than just single pieces of clothing. On the website you will also find a hyperlink to a section dedicated to designers (more expensive).
If you are looking for designer clothes without wanting to spend all your budget on them, The Outnet is the place for you! Here you will find pieces from over 350 designers at incredible discounts that sometimes reach up to 70% off the original price! Of course, sadly, you cannot expect to find a Balenciaga shirt at 20 euros, so the prices are still quite high.
Let us know if you have any other website worth looking into for online shopping and stay tuned for other articles on @ieustork!
