Moda a la Mexicana

Get a Mexican look with your everyday clothes 

September is the most important month for many Mexicans because we celebrate our independence. Although the official day of our independence is on September 16th, we make celebrations during this month which are called "Fiestas Patrias." If you are a Mexican or if you have a Mexican friend, who invites you to these parties and you don't know what to wear, this is the right place for you because I will give you some tips on how you can dress up for this kind of event.

First of all, you do not have to buy a Mexican customized style of dress to have that look. This look can be achieved by mixing your clothes with Mexican colors, such as hot pink, green, yellow, white, blue, red, etc., you can use these colors and any other color in a high intensity range (no pastels).  For example, you can combine your favorite pair of jeans with a red blouse and with black or green high heels or sandals.

Also, you can wear a red skirt with a white hand-made top. Or if you want to, go for a dress, it's all about being loud and vibrant. Simple pieces such as the green dress that is shown on the picture above put the attention on you and give you a festive feel. Don't be afraid to complement your outfit with accessories such as bracelets, long earrings, rings, and bells.

And if you want to give it a more Mexican style, don't forget to add a shawl.  Now you are ready to go and to have fun with style to the Fiestas Patrias.

This is my favorite part of the year because I can play around with my Mexican style! What is your favorite holiday and how do you dress up for it?
