The way we present ourselves to the world is a big deal. It is a representation of who we are, how we feel, and how we want to be perceived. Fashion is a part of our image. Plus, it’s a lot of fun to dress up. We wanted to give a shout out to those Latinas who are slaying their fashion game, each week, in a segment we like to call HipLatina Style. Have a look you want the world to know about? Tag your Instagram photos with #HipLatinaStyle, and you may see your ensemble here in the following weeks!
Slaying the New York Cold
New Jersey and New York fashion blogger Karen Edgar, a.k.a. Karen Ever After gave us a primer on how to look fashionable in the New York cold. Her furry jacket, over-the-knee boots, slouchy hobo bag and bun are giving us major J.Lo vibes.
Sleek in All Black
There’s something powerful, sleek, and timeless about wearing all black. In Austin, Texas, Vanessa Guerrero finished an all-black outfit with a moto jacket, adding a touch of toughness. Her elegant bag tipped the fashion scales back to elegant. Added bonus? Letting us all see these badass Frida Kahlo paintings.
Dee Hernandez, the Los Angeles/San Francisco/Sydney-based blogger of The Jitana was all about the layers with this cozy look. The mix of textures keeps the neutral outfit interesting.
It’s Still Sunny Somewhere
Jen K Rivera reminded us that not all of the country is freezing right now. It’s sunny in Orlando, Florida, and her outfit is equally sunny. A soft pink off-the shoulder crop top and maxi skirt are perfectly accessorized with iridescent gladiator sandals and a straw-detail bag.
A Day at Disney
Maria Jose Abad backed up her blog’s name Maria on Point by wearing this adorable, on-point outfit to her outing at Walt Disney World. A pretty patterned dress is combined with classic accessories and a timeless jean jacket, to create a cute, feminine look.
A Chic Holiday Look
Ilse of LIVELEARNLUXEIT is here to remind you that not all holiday outfits have to be sequined, red and/or green, or feature themed sweaters (although we love that too). Her take on year-end chic features a polished pencil skirt, and off-the-shoulder dress shirt, that says “party,” in a more subdued way.
All Color, All Day
Color is one of the ways we can elevate our mood, and those of others. You can’t help but smile when you see someone being daring with fun hues. Gabby Torres of She Wears Color is “still wearing pink on Wednesdays,” like the girls of Mean Girls, and proving that color doesn’t have to disappear in the colder months.
Stylish in the Snow
It’s hard to look put together and fashionable in the snow. Farida Mercedes, who blogs about motherhood at TWO CUBS AND A LIONESS, makes it look effortless. Instead of opting for all-black, she keeps warm – and posh – in tan and red.
A Walk on the Wild Side
Just like having fun with color, having fun with patterns shows you have enough of a handle on your fashion game to take risks. Marlyn of Marlyn Talks takes what could have been an everyday casual outfit up a notch, by wearing pleated, leopard-print pants with a green chenille sweater and matching Adidas. It’s a jungle-colored, dressier-casual swag we are totally here for.
How cute is this outfit?! Fashion blogger, singer, and worship leader AlyssaMarie Elizondo is giving us ’60s Chelsea Girl vibes with this super-put-together ensemble, featuring the on-trend fisherman cap with a ruffle-detail sweater, miniskirt, and over-the-knee boots. This look manages to look both old-school and of-the-moment.
