– A STYLE LESSON WITH-
BLANCA MIRÓ SCRIMIERI
Blanca Miró Scrimieri is a social media strategist, consultant and stylist who has also become one of Spain’s most followed fashion exports. With an audience of nearly 150k stalking her every stylish step on Instagram, her unique style, which combines a tomboy attitude with striking and often quirky accessories, has earned her a legion of fans. Born and bred in Barcelona, it’s Spain’s capital, Madrid—where I her in these summer-ready looks—which remains one of her favourite towns to visit. Here she gives her top tips on sunglasses and how to wear them no matter what your style.
“I definitely have a problem with sunglasses,” she guiltily admits, “I’ve been collecting them for years and everywhere I go, the first thing I look for is a new pair. I probably change my sunglasses at least twice in a day and I always carry a couple of pairs with me in my bag, just in case. At the moment, I’ve got about 90 in my collection and I love oversized and retro frames, especially cat-eyes and 70s shapes. I’m also really into small, square frames this season, but really I’ll try anything.”
“I PROBABLY CHANGE MY SUNGLASSES AT LEAST TWICE IN A DAY. I’M REALLY INTO SMALL, SQUARE FRAMES THIS SEASON, BUT REALLY I’LL TRY ANYTHING.”
The key to success with accessories, she says, is to inject a bit of fun. “Fashion shouldn’t be boring and I hate the idea of wearing an uniform every day. Accessories can add a real sense of happiness to your look even if you’re wearing something super-casual like jeans and a white T-shirt. I tend to go for striking options—glitter or metallics or prints, for example. Fashion should be about dressing up and enjoying yourself, I hate the idea of always looking exactly the same.
