dominicana moda ’14

Dominicana Moda is the biggest fashion week of my country, and I was lucky to be a style reporter for @MujerBHDLeón. Spending all six days at fashion week was at times exhausting and overwhelming, but participating on all shows and seeing the clothes on the runway was really fun.dm1

DAY 1 :: Pick up colors from a key piece and accessorize using those colors.


DAY 2 :: Nothing is more stylish than a black and white ensemble, with an unexpected touch of color.


DAY 3 :: When mixing stripes and florals make sure the color palette is the same.


DAY 4 :: Masculine pieces can be combined together without looking like a tomboy, just be sure the pieces have some feminine details.


DAY 5 :: Sporty can be turned into glam by combining ladylike pieces, such as a red lip and pearls.


DAY 6 :: A boho halter dress is a great option for saturday morning events.
