Cinco De Mayo Style! Mexican-Inspired Fashion

May 02, 2013

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!

Blonde though a bit dulled because the blue is still washing out. Really long and straight. I just woke up so it's messy and all over the place. I haven't really got any style cut into it either.
