Oscar de la Renta, once famously said, ‘Fashion is about dressing according to what is fashionable. Style is more about being yourself.’

Being a woman of style, I believe that our outfits are not just about what we wear but how we present ourselves in them.  Having said this, fashion  is merely clothing if not paired appropriately with confidence, a pleasant disposition and of course, a smile. 

A good outfit enhances our confidence when it is appropriate and enjoyable to wear at the same time. Speaking of which we bring you the SOFIA – AZTEC burkini by LYRA Swimwear.
