Mesh it up

New York’s weather is a disaster right now, it’s so hot and humid that the fashionistas are having trouble turning sweat into a trend. And, now that your’s truly has to stay on the Island working all summer, I came up with a couple of ideas to keep you looking stylish, while not boiling with hot layers. For this look, I would say I went a little over the top with a mesh sweater from Forever21. From the moment I first laid eyes on it, I knew it would be a fun little experiment to see how I would eventually style it. I decided to use this mesh sweater that is 100% polyester because its made up of noncellulosic fibers. Petroleum, coal, natural gas, air and water are used to make this fibers. Meaning that chemist working in laboratories produce various combinations of carbon, hydrogen, nitrogen and oxygen to create many of the fabrics we use today. Here, you can see how I layered it with a basic t-shirt from HB designs (a close friend from back home in Mexico) of #Karlito. Considering that the weather is hot as heck, I had no other option than to show some leg with these short shorts from Zara. Keeping the look very minimal with black and white tones. I accessorized with my white and silver Dior reflective sunnies, my Chanel boy bag, and my Fendi key chain of #Karlito that matches the outfit perfectly. On my feet I played it colorful and added my Bernhard Willhelm x Camper color block sandals, just to add a little summer vibe to the whole black and white look. Remember, if it’s hot, mesh it up to look avant-garde, even though the sun is burning your scalp, lol.

El clima de Nueva York es un desastre hoy en día; demasiado caliente y húmedo como para que los fashionistas sufran cada vez que usan alguna tendencia. Ahora que estaré en la isla para trabajar por el verano, me surgieron nuevas ideas para lucir con estilo, sin morir de calor con tantas capas. Para este look, usé un mesh top sobre la camisa blanca Forever21. El primer momento que pusé mis ojos en él, supé que sería un experimento divertido usarlo y adecuarlo a un outfit. Decidí usar un suéter mesh que esta hecho de poliester 100% gracias a sus fibras de noncelulosa. Petróleo, gas natural, aire y agua son usados para crear estas fibras. Lo que significa que la química usada en laboratorios produce diversas combinaciones de carbono, hidrógeno, nitrógeno y oxígeno para crear varias fabricaciones que usamos hoy en día. Aquí pueden apreciar como use distintas capas que estilicé con una t shirt básica de HB designs (un amigo de México) de #Karlito. Considerando que el calor es insoportable, no tuve mas opción que enseñar pierna con mis shorts de Zara, dejando el look sencillo y minimalista con tonos blancos y negros. Accesoricé con mis lentes blancos y plateados de Dior, mi bolsa boy de Chanel y mi llavero de Fendi de #Karlito que va perfecto con el outfit. En mis pies me dejé llevar por el color y me pusé mis sandalias color block de Bernhard Willhelm por Camper, solo para agregar un poco de vibra veraniega a todo el look blanco y negro. Recuerda, si hace calor el mesh up es la opción para crear un look avant garde, aun cuando el sol te queme, jaja.

Style the Stars and Stripes Farfetch competition wearing:

TOPMAN shirt, TED BAKER shorts, BIRKENSTOCK sandals, HERMES scarf, YLIANA YEPEZ clutch, OLIVER PEOPLES sunnies

1984

Call me nostalgic but I miss waking up on a Monday morning and having to go to school. So todays outfit inspiration is based on my vintage varsity jacket from 1984. Staying in theme with the look I decided to accessorize with a Herschel black backpack and a cool pair of Sony headphones for those long subway rides. Under the jacket a gray H&M hoodie to keep me warm, my J. Crew plaid shirt wrapped around my waist and washed up torn jeans from TOPMAN did the trick. New York’s weather mood swings, a little snow here, a little storm there got me worried on what type of shoe to wear but you can never go wrong with Prada. My three tone oxford booties where the perfect element to complete my outfit giving me style, balance, and comfort when stumbling into puddles.
