Cinco De Mayo Style! Mexican-Inspired Fashion

May 05, 2016

Celebrate Cinco de Mayo this year by wearing some Mexican-inspired fashion! Cinco de Mayo means the 'Fifth of May" in Spanish and it's celebrated in America and regionally in Mexico. Originating in the Mexican-American communities in the South West as a way to celebrate Mexican heritage. The day is also a holiday in the state of Puebla, Mexico and commemorates the Mexican army's victory over the French forces at the battle of Puebla on May 5th, 1862.

Mexican-inspired Style

Get into the spirit by channeling the traditional, vibrant clothing found in Mexican culture. The Mexican flag is red, white and green and traditional dress is characterized by bright colors, Aztec-style prints, bold patterns and huaracha sandals. Channel the look by looking for the country's national colors and mixing with prints and a more bohemian look. It can be as simple as wearing white jeans, a printed top and piling on loads of braided bangles and silver jewelry! Check out our edit of the best Mexican-inspired fashion - Happy Cinco de Mayo!

Dear Dish-It In The Forums

I totally feel the same way. The one guy I thought was interested friend-zoned me, so I've been kind of closed to relationships. One thing I've learned is not to jump into a relationship just because everyone else is. Just think, in 20 years they'll have all these bad memories of their many relationships, and you'll learn from their mistakes. Wanting to be in a relationship doesn't make you desperate either. You just feel a little left out. Trust me, I've been there. Don't feel alone. Being single, well, sucks, but don't worry, we've got your back, and I just know there's someone out there waiting to meet you.

Hi everyone! I'm starting at a new school next year and I'm wondering if you have any tips. The thing is, it's my first ever year at a public school. I'm joining the 8th grade, so I'm so scared that everyone already knows eachother and I won't make any friends... :( If you have ANY advice or tips, I'd really appreciate it!

Hey Guys! I guess I'm just thinking out loud in a way, but hopefully some of you can relate to this. Sometimes we drift apart with some close friends, but that's not something to be hung up on. It's a part of life. Now I know that people can be mean and unreasonable but don't let them define who you are.  Here's my story. I met my best friend when I was 5 years old, we weren't very close when we first met, but as we got older, we realized we were "meant to be". We shared the same passions, liked the same music, and really had fun when we were together. We were best friends and everyone knew it.  As we got older, we started drifting apart from each other, I think we both realized this. We both had our lives together and we met new people. Slowly, we started losing contact, we spent less time together, and we started finding things that we didn't like about each other. That's when we stopped being friends and had a type of "hate" relationship that was very toxic.  Some of you might have been through this and other may not.  This is just some advice if you are going through it right now. It's a difficult time, and it's confusing. Trust me, I was so lost and upset at what happened that it became an obsession. I couldn't stop thinking about it, I let it take over in a way.  But it's okay to feel like that, everyone needs closure. Just don't let it control your life.  So I guess the first piece of advice is to keep yourself busy. Spend time with your other friends, spend time with your family, even your pets, and be the bigger person. Make new memories and just be a positive person. In my situation, I did not talk about her in a negative way, just simply told people we "drifted apart".  She didn't do this though, she made sure everyone knew she didn't like me and said a lot of things that weren't true or were some of my darkest secrets that she only knew. I'm not saying I'm a perfect person, I have flaws, everyone has flaws. That doesn't mean you're a bad person, you just made mistakes, but that's okay because you're human, it's how we learn and sometimes we just need a slap of reality to make us realize it.  I also was scared, I was scared that people believed some things she said about me, but honestly you need to realize that people don't really care. It sounds harsh but that's a good thing. Everyone has their own problems to deal with so don't worry about what other people think about you.  Just because your Ex Best Friend says you're a bad person it doesn't mean other people will think you are.  Anyways I hope this helps a little, keep slaying! <3

I buy a lot of my clothes from things such as Wish or places online such as Killstar, Disturbia, Dolls Kill, or Hottopic when I have coupons or they're having sales. I use Wish a lot due to how they have a lot of things that other sites have and there's always a chance they have what you're looking for. Just make sure on reviews and ratings, and you'd be fine.
