Cayetanas are a fairly recent urban tribe, subculture and fashion style from Spain[1]. Their sense of fashion is characterized by their elegancy, minimalism and natural style; they use little to no makeup, basic clothing, minimalist nail styles and chic yet classy and casual clothing. They never wear tight or narrow clothing. Although their outfits are simple, they strategically combine their clothing of choice. The term "Cayetana" was originally used for upper-middle class girls and women from Seville whose families were rich. It's also known that there are several bullfighters in Andalusia called Cayetano[2]. Its masculine counterpart would be Pijos, sometimes also called Cayetanos respectivily.
