Summer party look for Mexican celebration

Q. I am attending a celebration at a Mexican resort and am looking for a comfortable stylish outfit. My initial thought is low wedged espadrilles, a comfortable jersey or cotton dress, and a lightweight scarf/pashmina for a extra warmth. I am struggling to pull a coordinated outfit together. I want it to be bohemian chic with a nod to Spanish/Mexican flavor without looking like a costume. A purse and jewelry options to simply accessorize would be great too. Gwyneth Paltrow, Kate Moss, and Jennifer Anniston are good examples of the style I am leaning towards with this outfit.

A. You can’t go wrong with a pretty printed dress, especially one of this season’s gorgeous ikat iterations. Of course, what’s comfortable for one person may not be comfortable for another, but you’re bound to find a silhouette that works for you, whether mini or maxi, strapless or short sleeved. Here are a few options for your Mexican celebration:


For shoes, a low wedge or even flat strappy metallic sandal will be perfect. A pretty scarf or open weave cardigan are ideal for layering should the weather get chilly. As for accessories, opt for pretty earrings, a cuff bracelet or bangles, and a summery clutch. Have fun!
