5 Spanish Fashion Trends Every “Chica” Should Embrace This Summer

“She must be American,” says a Spaniard watching a study abroad student run through the streets of Madrid in flip-flops, and what appears to be ten-year old pair of ratty, grey leggings. Ding, Ding the Spaniard is correct! Often, it is easy to distinguish between who is European and who is American by one’s wardrobe. It is indisputable that fashion in Europe greatly differs from that of the United States, and trends often appear in Europe before making their way across the pond. Don’t wait a year or more for European fashion to arrive in the United States – instead, set the trend with these iconic Spanish styles.

1. Animal Prints

Fashions trends come and go, but animal prints will always be a wild statement. From zebra to snakeskin, Spaniards are prowling the streets with daring looks. Be bold and join the zoo crew by embracing a plethora of fabrics and styles this summer.
