1. LOOK CASUAL YET FESTIVE WITH OFF-SHOULDER TOP
If you gravitate towards a relaxed style, a fun off-shoulder top never goes wrong. Whether you team it with denim shorts or a playful pom-pom off-shoulder tunic dress, it just looks fun and cute.

2. EMBRACE VIBRANT STRIPES FOR A FIESTA PARTY
Of course, how can we not mention vibrant stripes when it comes to a fiesta party? It’s bold, it’s colorful and this just can’t be more Mexican. For a youthful look, team a spaghetti strap slit dress and gladiator sandals just seal the deal. If you are feeling boho today, go for a maxi striped shirt dress with a brown felt hat and tribal fringe crossbody bag that is sure to turn heads.
I know some girls may shy away from the striped dress as they think it will elongate the body visually. If that’s the case, you can always pick the one with thinner stripes instead of the thicker one to minimize the effect. Trust me, the difference is HUGE.

3. WHEN IN DOUBT, GO FOR TRIBAL PRINTS
Despite the bold hue, another way to embody the Mexican party spirit is to experiment with all kinds of tribal and Aztec prints. If an all-over tribal dress looks too much for you, feel free to dress it down with a crisp white tee and an A-line tribal skirt.
But seriously, tribal prints are such a must-have Fiesta attire if you want a distinctive sense of exoticness.
4. FRESHEN UP MEXICAN LOOK WITH WHITE

As a petite girl, I will always wear a statement necklace or long earrings to draw eyes upward. Together with a nice pair of nude chunky heels to elongate your legs, I can guarantee you can handle the boldness effortlessly.
6. GO MATCHY FOR FIESTA PARTY WITH YOUR PARTNER
Want double happiness? Then why not do a matchy Mexican-themed set with your partner? For a white tone theme, your man can go simple with a white shirt and lime green dress pants as a touch of fun while you are wearing an embroidery co-ord set. That just looks perfect for any Instagram shot.
