What to Wear Spring in Barcelona
Hi girls, how are you today?
SPRING IS FINALLY HERE, but unfortunately it seems we are all locked in our houses amid the Coronavirus global threat. With the extra time at hands, I decided it would be a great moment to write about neutral Barcelona Spring street style to inspire you towards having something to look forward when all this madness is over.
I know I am taking notes of all the things I plan on buying (and spite the money invested in stocking up for the quarantine, I am glad to say I haven’t’ spent money in anything else during these 5 days we are locked down in Barcelona so far).
My intention was to model my outfits myself for this post, by going for a walk around town. However, being that we should all stay in our homes, I had to go to alternative B, which is borrowing a few pictures from fellow bloggers.
I will,however, do a try on haul this week at home and I will post it on this blog post.

Barcelona Spring Street Style (with a touch of neutrals, my obsession).
If I had to describe it, Barcelona dress code is kind of an “urban cool” mix and, having come from living in Switzerland before arriving here, I must admit it was a bit of a cultural shock the way people dress up in this city.
What I mean is that Barcelona is NOT a fancy, dressy destination such as Paris (and don’t expect to find men here wearing suits like in London).
The main reason for that is that Barcelona is a very young city, with many people coming here for internships, masters or their first job after university. The beach, great weather and friendly society are all too attractive to ignore, especially when you want cheap drinks and fun parties.
I love Barcelona but, admittedly, the only reason I still live here in my thirties is because I met Cris here and he loves this city so much. If I were a single gal, you can bet your ass I’d be outta here.
The reason I say this is because, even though the city is great in every way you can imagine, as an ambitious woman in my thirties I feel a disconnect here, especially regarding fashion. I can’t, can’t, can’ttttttttt adopt this 90’s fashion that people are obsessed over.
To me, the 90s were the worst period for fashion and I can’t believe people are paying their hard earned money to dress up like a hobo.
With that said, if you’re here it is probably because we think alike regarding fashion and you probably also love wearing neutrals, monochromatic looks that make you look elegant, regardless where you’re going. Or maybe you simply want some inspiration from someone who lives for neutrals!
Whatever your reason is, I am truly happy to have you here!
That being said, find below my outfit recommendations for Barcelona Spring street style for classic women, or girls who wish to be more elegant on a day to day basis.
SPRING SEASON IN BARCELONA
Barcelona has the perfect winter and spring weather to be chic due to the fact that it is not insanely cold here (hence you don’t need to dress up in layers). As the city has blue skies and sunshine almost year-round you can expect the daytime to be warmer, with temperatures slightly dropping at night time.
The official spring season for 2020 is March 20 – June 20.
Think of March as an extension of a mild winter. Keep in mind that the winter in Barcelona is not harsh at all (around 9 to 17 Celsius, which is 48 to 62 Fahrenheit, respectively). In fact, during mid-March many people are still wearing their winter coats.
April and May are warmer, and June is the warmest.
Keep in mind that Spring is usually a rainy season in general (those flowers need water to grow, after all), so be sure to bring an umbrella with you!
Without further delay, below are my absolute spring outfit inspiration to always look elegant in Europe.

I love the monochromatic look, especially in spring time when you can wear beautiful sweaters outside.
If you wish to break down the monochromatic look, switch the cream boots/sandals and handbags for black, and watch how the look changes (this is the beauty of the capsule closet and neutrals).
High-wasted, comfortable pants that are paired with flat sandals or white sneakers are always a classic combo
As you can see, classy dressing takes a bit of modesty. I hope this post has helped you have a better understanding of the magic of neutrals (and monochrome for that matter).
A modest and quality sweater paired with a long skirt, or black pants and a linen blazer are other options of classically cute Barcelona spring outfits for that you try and sport when going around this fantastic city.
Moreover, a high-end blouse with ankle length jeans or white pants, paired with a great handbag (my addiction, if you know me at all), will truly make you appear elegant and trendy.
Neutral outfits are to me far from boring and you may create amazing fashion-forward ensembles that will accentuate your elegant, feminine and flirty style. Formulating neutral outfits is fun, easy, and coming up with a fun ensemble usually comes at ease.
In fact, I wrote an entire post of why I am opting for a more minimalist life in 2020. Find the post here.
