Raquel Paiva is a Brazilian-born, NYC-based personal style blogger. Raised on the coast of São Paulo, she came to the U.S. seeking adventure in the form of learning English and exploring her passion for styling. Her desire to work in the fashion industry is what ultimately drew her to Brooklyn, New York.
Paiva’s blog, written in both Portuguese and English, offers a look at the city and its style through an international lens. In addition to showcasing outfits, it serves as a platform to share her hair routines, travel tips, and advice on how to love your body. When she’s not repping her culture in a colorful bikini or sporting festival-ready looks, you can find Paiva clad in denim. Whether in the coolest cutoffs or a pair of kick-ass flares, this blogger proves that denim is a universal obsession.
Paiva came to the NYLON headquarters to style three denim looks inspired by our August Denim Issue. Find a sassy new way to wear blue jeans below, and head on over to NYLONshop to snag her picks.
