Chanel some Frida Kahlo in true Mexican style.
Ladies, anything colourful, floral and frilly will work.
Get creative - flowers in your hair, big colourful jewelry,
shawls, white off the shoulder top and a colourful skirt
As for guys, you can go from classic to cool to bad ass. A simple bandana or a straw hat, tattoos or T-shirt. Any colourful shirt paired with a bandana or a red scarf will do the job! Add a big buckled belt and that would really complete the look. Toss a straw hat into the look and you could be walking down the streets of Los Cabos or Tijuana! more tips here>>>
