8 Mexican Embroidered Dresses You'll Want to Add to Your Summer Wardrobe - Modern Brown Girl

Sure, white girls at Coachella and every summer music festival under the sun love to rock Mexican embroidered dresses, but these intricate dresses used to be a staple in my abuela’s closet during the warm summer months. I always admired how effortlessly beautiful she looked in them. She had casual dresses for everyday wear and more elaborate dresses for special occasions.

Mexican embroidered dresses (huipiles) evolved from traditional Mayan garments and each dress is a true piece of art. Every Modern Brown Girl should have a Mexican embroidered dress in her closet, and we’ve rounded up eight dresses that will make you feel beautiful while showing off your Latina pride.
