This month, Who What Wear UK is shifting the fashion focus from our home turf to exploring international style: Welcome to our Global Fashion Gang.
While you might not think of Madrid as a fashion capital like Paris or Milan, the Spanish fashion industry has a huge impact on the way we dress thanks to Zara, Uterqüe and other high-street giants. Here at Who What Wear, we are always looking for new style inspiration and influencers who we can add to our Instagram feeds, so this week we're turning our attention to Spain's most popular girls on social media.
Summer is (finally) on its way, and many of us are currently in a packing flap for upcoming beach holidays. While we spend only a few weeks a year by the beach, our four favourite Spanish bloggers have holiday dressing down, as not only have they spent their whole lives in white sun dresses and espadrilles, but travelling is also a part of their job description. Scroll through the gallery below to meet four of our favourite Spanish bloggers, plus shop our edit of the key pieces to nail summer style with a Spanish lilt.
Style Notes: Gala González has a huge following on Instagram (over 700k), and although she currently lives in the United States, she still sticks to signature Spanish pieces, such as earthy tones, playful prints and espadrilles.
Teresa Andrés Gonzalvo
Style Notes: Spanish girls love gold jewellery, oversized earrings, playful prints and off-the-shoulder silhouettes — if this sounds like your ideal beach wardrobe then follow Teresa.
Sara From Collage Vintage
Style Notes: Sara from Collage Vintage is another super-blogger, with over 700k followers, and now she travels constantly, so she is a never-ending source of holiday-dressing inspiration. Here, she shows that a tiered, ruffled skirt, gold hoop earrings and block-heel sandals are always going to be beach essentials.
Alexandra Pereira From Lovely Pepa
Style Notes: Alexandra Pereira is perhaps Spain's most successful fashion blogger with over 1.3 million followers on Instagram, and she is now based in the U.S. Alexandra shows that one of the most useful items for a beach holiday is a silk printed scarf, as it can also double as a chic headband.
