Originally a celebration of an against-all-odds victory in the Franco-Mexican war, Cinco de Mayo in the States is less wartime remembrance than full-on fiesta, a tequila-laced homage to south-of-the-border culture and heritage. Sartorially, that brings to mind Latina style icons like Frida Kahlo, with piles of turquoise and silver jewelry, off-the-shoulder ruffles, and plenty of colorful embroidery. It’s a look and feel that works all summer long, so pick up a few pieces now and you can work them into your warm-weather wardrobe for months. Click to get Mexicana style.
