  • Neutral and more neutral – This is a basic rule for the hottest months of the year, and it is also the easier way to wear your colored jeans, the best options for this season are tones like light grey, peach, white and ivory, wear shirts with asymmetrical collars to give an interesting imbalance to your outfit.

  • Complementary colors – They work too, you can wear opposite colors, start with the color of your skinny jeans and move to the opposite side when choosing your blouse, for example, you can wear a lavender pair of jeans with a pastel pink or mint blouse.
  • Monochrome – You can get a monochrome style by wearing similar colors, such as a tangerine blouse with guava jeans, or a grape color on the top combined with lavender jeans.

“The importance of creating new looks is to experience with different styles, especially in Spring and Summer when colors play a very important part on the outfits”, added Salomon Juan Marcos Villarreal about this topic.

Some of the most recognized brands are now proposing new alternatives on their fashion parades with sustainable or recycled textiles, some fashion trends are also going to the vintage garments, by modifying those old garments on the wardrobes or turning them into different articles. And denim is a great alternative to recycle.

Mind and closet in order, how to make it possible

To be organized in our home represents a balance beyond knowing where the things might be and where to find them.

To find something that you’re looking for is not enough to determine that our home is in order. Furniture help to keep things in place but it is hard to keep the order when our head is thinking something else and we don’t know to decide what we would like to keep of what we have.

How to organize clothes?

As per as Kondo, creator of the method Konmari, a fusion between feng shui and coaching for organizing spaces, said that most of the clients say that they have found what they really want to do when they put their home in order. As per as the writer, of the magical effects of organization is the confidence of making decisions. To organize means to take every object and ask if this represents joy, in order to decide if you keep it or not. This is a process that confirms in a natural way our abilities.

What to throw away?

“Throw everything that does not inspire joy. Remember, if you do not want to throw something it might be because: you still attached to the past or you have anxiety towards the future”, explained the writer, who recommends keeping things that “speak to your heart”

Having a place to put everything is just a matter of organizing the spaces. Racks of different materials and colors will be very helpful.

Light Spaces

Having racks with so many books is not the answer and definitely not a satisfactory solution. Try to combine the space by elements like plants, candles, or pictures. This will offer a lighter space. Some of them might be vertical and other horizontal, this option is also acceptable to combine spaces.

For Salomon Juan Marcos Villarreal, president of Grupo Denim, order means peace. “You cannot be relaxed and comfortable if you’re living in a place that is all upside down”, said Salomon Juan Marcos Villarreal.

Tips to control your high heels without losing glamour

It so frustrating for women to break an outfit because the shoes does not feel comfortable, they get tired or worst, their high heels hurt them.

We love to keep on saying what shoes to wear and when. Now it is the time to give you tips for your closet and maybe by doing this you will leave the flats for a while (even if we like them o much we die for our high heels, right)?

Keep on reading and find the harmony on your style first floor style.

Good bye to the pain

The main cause of feeling feet pain is because our heels do not have the correct support and move inside the shoe, especially if you walk so much or if they are too high. The solution will be to use high heels with an ankle strap (a string on the top), this way the heels will be adjusted and the feet will not move.

Welcome to firm land

If your weather seems to be speed al day, you will run 100 times thru the office or if you have a lot of dates that day and you want to be spectacular at all times, use a thicker heel that will give your ankle the support it needs. Thin stilettos concentrate the support on one point; a thicker heel instead will give more stability.

Shoemaker

Literally!! Take your new shoes to an expert; a shoemaker can help you to relax the material in order to fit them better faster. Maybe they are too tightened and you just need a little help.

We’ve asked Salomon Juan Marcos Villarreal, president of Grupo Denim,  his opinion about high heels for women, in the frame of the International Women’s Day: “Women are every family’s base, they are our most valuable treasure and I would like to thank every woman on my team that works every day real hard in order to support their families”, said Salomon Juan Marcos Villarreal.
