Traditional Mexican clothing is colorful, comfortable, unique and very interesting.
Mexican cloths, in general, are very comfortable because they are primarily made with cotton, wool and other natural and comfortable materials.
Even everyday Mexican clothing is very interesting and fun to wear. Take for example the Mexican peasant dress, also known as the China Dress and Mexican folk dress, which is characterized with loose fit, short sleeves and colorful embroidery.
Its loose fit makes it very comfortable to wear and its beautiful and colorful embroidery makes this Mexican dress very feminine and gentle.
The sombrero (traditional Mexican hat), which is a trademark of traditional Mexican clothing, is very popular in Mexico because it provides very good protection from the sun, due to its large brim.
Another interesting everyday Mexican garment is the Rebozo which is rectangular in shape and looks like a big scarf. The Rebozo is traditionally used by Mexican women to carry children, groceries or anything else that can be carried in that way.
The Rebozo is also used by the middle and upper class in Mexico. Ladies of the upper and middle class carry this traditional Mexican garment as the scarf or just as the ornament.
In fact most of the authentic Mexican outfits are carried by all of the social classes in Mexico but for different purposes.
For example peasant Mexican women wear the Rebozos for practical reasons whereas the Mexican upper class ladies wear it only as the ornament.
Also, the peasant rebozo costs a couple of dollars whereas the upper class rebozo can cost a couple of hundreds of dollars.
Unfortunately, due to the globalization there are less and less opportunities to see the traditionally dressed Mexicans in Mexico, except during the Mexican fiestas and celebrations such as the Mexican Independence Day.
