Sizzling Street Style at Colombia Moda 2013

 

 

By: Hina P. Ansari

 

 

Well in case you haven’t heard, I am down south — in South America that is — for a Colombia Moda 2013, their official fashion week in magical Medellin. While running from my front row seat of one show to my front row seat of the next, I quickly made it a point to grab some fantastic street style as donned by the Medellin’s moda mavens.

 

I’m putting together a special collection of runway show coverage, so stay tuned for that, in the meantime, enjoy our latest installation of our Global Street Style…this time from the streets (or by the runways) of Medellin, Colombia.

 

What did I learn from this roster of our caliente couture lovers? Key notes: Sequins, skycraper stilettos and summery styles.

I saw these everywhere. An ode to their culture, traditional Colombian satchels gave it an easy breezy hands-free look. And lets not forget her fabulous slouchy booties!

These girls were having simply too much fun. So I had to take a picture of them. Tanned and strikingly pretty. Love the headpiece and shoes on the Katie Holmes twinsie.
