August Style / Estilo De Agosto

La versión español está después de la versión inglés.

FASHIONISTAS, HERE'S MORE on the shorts of summer. This late in the season, the trend is RED. But, still, don't be afraid to make the red your own.

While writing this post I at first thought the Spanish word for "fashionista" would be "fashionista," since it already sounds so Spanish. It turns out that, although many Spaniards do use the word, many more are unfamiliar with it. So I did some research and found the correct terms (like seguidor de la moda). But I also asked our friend Jessica what she would say. She explained, as I had already learned, that "fashionista" is used by some people. She then gave me true Spanish alternatives. And then she said with a laugh, "We call them 'influencers' now." So, check out these influencers below.

SEGUIDORES DE LA moda, más sobre los pantalones cortos del verano. A finales de la temporada, la tendencia es ROJA. Pero, todavía, no tengas miedo de hacer el color tuyo.

Al escribir esta entrada al principio pensé que la palabra española para "fashionista" (que no es realmente inglés) sería "fashionista." Hice algunas investigaciones y encontré las frases correctas (como "seguidor de la moda"). Pero también pregunté a nuestra amiga Jessica qué diría. Ella explicó lo que ya había aprendido, que "fashionista" es utilizado solo por algunas personas. Luego me dio alternativas españolas. Y luego dijo con una risa, "Los llamamos 'influencers' ahora. Por lo tanto, echa un vistazo a estos "influencers" a continuación.

A HIGH WAIST NEVER GOES OUT OF STYLE.
UNA ALTA CINTURA NUNCA SALE DE MODA.
OR MAYBE LOW SLUNG AT THE CROTCH.
O, QUIZAS, COLGADO EN LA ENTREPIERNA.
ASYMMETRY IS HOT. DON'T BE AFRAID TO HANG TO THE RIGHT (OR LEFT).
LA ASIMETRÍA ES CALIENTE. NO TENGA MIEDO DE COLGAR A LA DERECHA (O IZQUIERDA).
AND IF YOU STARTED LATE, SASHAY!
Y SI EMPEZASTE TARDE, ¡PAVONEÁNDOTE!

  1. It looks a little indecent when non-tan skin hangs out doesn't it! I feel that when I occasionally wear shorter shorts than usual and I'm a 74 year old woman - maybe if I just walk as fast as possible no one will notice?

      You're right. I have serious sandals tan line this year and I feel oddly naked when I go barefoot.

    2. I keep switching up my sandals hoping to eventually expose all my foot (feet) but somehow it doesn't work and going barefoot just in the house does no good. Oh well, it will all fade by mid-autumn anyway.

      I usually spend enough time loafing on the beach to keep the sandal tan at bay. This year, I just haven't had the patience. Once the crowds are gone this week, I'll be able to do my walks on the beach. Right now, there are people in my way.

  3. Some guys hang to the right; others hang to the left, and some of us just boink in the middle.

  4. Goodness, I guess I am just old fashioned but it seems a lot of skin is hanging out in your photos. I don't hang out at the beach enough I guess!
    Take care.

      Well, I must admit I show skin too. Just not with my shorts tucked into my underwear.

  5. Certainly a style you rarely see the US. Most usually sink down to right above the knee

      I haven't managed to get a shot of someone in board shorts tucked into their underwear. But we have those, too.

      The last guy had a very macho demeanor except for the way he un-self-consciously held his "skirts" up as he walked. My kind of guy!
