Mexico is a country rich with culture and history. From the food to the outfits, the people to the music, there’s something special about Mexico, making it a favorite travel destination.
Dotted throughout the country, there are areas and regions particularly popular with travelers: Mexico City, with its spicy cuisine and colonial architecture; Tulum, with its spiritual history and iconic Mayan ruins; and last but not least Cancun, with its white sand beaches and buzzing nightlife.
Whatever your reasons for visiting Mexico, it’s essential to know what to wear. There are so many possibilities for outfits for a vacation in Mexico that it can be difficult to decide what to add to your packing list. Moreover, your reasons for visiting Mexico, as well as the places you choose to go to, can impact style options. Let’s start packing!
1. For Lounging on the Beach
When temperatures are high and the white sand beaches of Cancun are totally tempting, you’ll need something stylish and practical to accompany you on your seaside visit. Whether you’re going to greet the dawn along the shoreline or plan on losing yourself in a fun beach read, the striped geo swing dress is one of the more ideal outfits for a vacation in Mexico.
The perfect beach cover-up, this dress goes hand-in-hand with Mexican seaside adventures. Throw on a floppy hat and sandals for that paradisiacal walk by the shore. Retro sunglasses complement the look brilliantly.
Even if your intentions don’t go beyond lounging and soaking up the glorious sunshine (don’t forget SPF!), Sara Joy’s effortless and colorful swing dress will elevate the coastal experience.
2. For Exploring the City
If you have a city break planned, you’ll need to pack something with a chic, urban vibe. Perfect for discovering Mexico’s cultural icons, such as the Museo Nacional de Art, the printed paisley maxi caftan features a striking paisley pattern.
Also characterized by its unique stripes, this stunning caftan is incredibly versatile, making it ideal for exploring the city’s historic architecture, happy hour at the hotel bar, or splashing out at one of Mexico’s many malls.
Both flattering and comfortable, this garment can be dressed up with sparkly wedges and chunky earrings, or toned down with simple flats. Toss on a jean jacket for a boho vibe that’s perfect for chillier evenings. While it thrives in the city, you can just as easily wear it to the beach with sandals and a straw hat.
3. For Brunch With the Girls
When traveling with friends, you’ll undoubtedly be dining out together often. Whether it’s a classy dinner or a casual brunch, having the right outfit will make it much more fun to pose for pics with your mimosa. Sara Joy’s lavender floral caftan stands out with a serene flower print in shades of lavender and sage. You’ll love the soothing, summery colors complemented by the caftan’s flowy ease.
As far as the best outfits for a vacation in Mexico go, this should be at the top of any fashionista’s list. It’s lightweight and comfortable and boasts special details that really make it shine: the violet tassels on the garment’s sleeves, as well as the drawstring waist to be styled a variety of ways.
4. For Hanging Poolside
Many Mexican resorts feature glorious swimming pools and considering Mexico’s outstanding climate, you’d be hard pushed to find a resort in Mexico without a decent-sized pool to take it all in. In fact, many resorts have a pool-centric culture; fun, high-quality bars alongside gorgeous pools are prevalent and fantastic places to sit back and relax.
Our painted floral open caftan is resort wear par excellence. An excellent clothing choice for hanging poolside with its vibrant colors and relaxed elegance, this floral number works well as a stylish coverup. It’s also fabulously versatile and looks great over a bathing suit at the beach or over shorts and a bikini top for chilling around the pool. An oversized hat rarely looks out of place with a caftan, so consider wearing one to top off this look.
5. For A Special Dinner Date
Imagine a garment that can act as a scarf for the plane, a fabulous skirt (mini or full-length) for the beach, a cheery coverup for your bathing suit at the pool, or a stunning shawl for a dinner date. Guess what? You’re thinking of a sarong! The tropical geo sarong is one of the most fun and functional outfits for a vacation in Mexico.
Characterized by its bright colors and style adaptability, Sara Joy’s gorgeous sarong can be tossed on as a shawl alongside white denim and a tank for an exotic evening look. Printed on the softest cotton, it’s both comfy and chic.
