It seems that every woman in Spain is born with fashion sense, as well as the ability to walk for hours in 5 inch stilettos on cobblestones withoutfalling once, with a cigarette in one hand and a drink in the other. Women (and men) are careful about how they dress, making sure to always look nice, as well as being careful about how other people look too.
This has had the unfortunate effect of making me care more about how I dress in public. The general rule of thumb is that if you wouldnÂ’t wear it back home, you can definitely get away with it in Spain.
The trick is you have to wear it with confidence; women in Spain exude confidence. You must always look nice, ALWAYS! And when in doubt about shoes, wear heels. It is completely normal to see women shopping or buying groceries in high heels. If you go out at night, feel free to go all out.
