A la Española - How to wear Bolero

The bolero has been constantly associated with a variety of fashion and international contexts over genres. However, its origins and influences are of great significance. The bolero reflects its cultural roots with dramatic illusions to the toreadors of Spanish bullfighting and imagery through intricate beading and embroidery and is also identical to bolero music accompanied by traditional bolero dance - all originated in Spain.


Influenced by Spanish styles and modernized extensively over years, the Bolero Jacket is still a mainstay in fashion today, which is why in this post we are going to explore more on this very versatile investment piece.

Bolero Bolero

The Bolero Jacket is typically flattering to all body shapes and to make it even better; the cropped hem emphasizes the waist while optional shoulder padding highlights the shoulders. Crisply tailored, we have layered our signature jacket over a simple wrap top and paired with embroidered trousers, transforming the outfit to a whole new level.


A bolero is handy and fun for women heading straight from work to party as it transforms the outfit effortlessly from day to night. Although you can wear them anytime of the year, it is most desirable in summer and spring as an alternative to a heavier jacket or sweater.


Following the Spanish flair, we have given a very romantic and flirtatious spice to the outfit with a red rose and flaming red lips. Surely, not to forget statement accessories to complete the look – a cute little fur bag in this case!


So ladies, get your Spanish mood on and rock this trend!
