Spring Trend: Viva Mexico

Fiesta-friendly fashion is one of Spring 2014’s freshest trends, with Rebecca Minkoff kicking things off during Fashion Week with looks that featured colorful embroidery, elaborate cut-outs, and one overt “Let’s Go to Mexico” tee.

Christian Siriano touted a trip to Isla Mujeres off the coast of Mexico as a major source of inspiration for his flouncy collection, while other designers such as Cynthia Rowley, Delpozo, Naeem Khan, and J.Crew all got in on the south-of-the-border action with intricate, ruffled, off-the-shoulder pieces that called to mind a modern-day Frida Kahlo.
