Celebrating Cinco de Mayo isn't just about drinking ice cold margaritas; embracing the holiday's bold colors and festive style is all part of the fun. And we aren’t talking about ponchos and sombreros, instead we encourage you to wear fun fringe, bohemian prints, and Mexican-inspired embroidery, because nothing puts us in the mood to fiesta quite like the perfect outfit.
Cinco de Mayo means the "Fifth of May" in Spanish and it's celebrated in America and regionally in Mexico. 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 5, 1862.
Get into the spirit by channeling the traditional and vibrant clothing found in Mexican culture. The Mexican flag is red, white, and green. We have gathered some of the cutest styles for you to dance the night away. We encourage you to channel the look by searching for the country's national colors and mixing it with embroidery for a more modern look. It can be as simple as wearing a white jean jacket such as our Distressed Floral Embroidery Crop Denim Jacket, or our Red Plus Size Fold Over Off The Shoulder Bodycon Mini Dress, looking for something green? How about our festive Olive Plus Size Tacos & Tequila Graphic Print Ruched Cami Top to get you in the mood… it is a fiesta after all!
Embroidery & Flower details are a big part of Mexican heritage; they are also one of the biggest fashion trends at the moment, check out our “Embroidery” and “Floral” page for an endless selection of Spring and Summer styles; from clothes, to shoes, to accessories! And though the festivities may only last for a day, the bright and colorful looks are something to be celebrated all season long, which is why we included our favorite pieces to stock up on. Some of our favorites include the Embroidered Floral Suede Chunky Heel, Off-The-Shoulder Lace Bell Sleeves Crop Top, Crochet Knit Ruffle Mini Dress, Embroidered Floral Tassel Clutch Bag and many, many more to choose from.
