Mexican clothing is a very small fashion industry. Most Mexican clothing are past down from their ancestors. Woman usually weaves clothing for their family because of the cost of fabric. Major cities of Mexico wear the same clothes as you and me. Most Mexicans can’t afford new clothes but they seem to pull it off. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9_Vt 3y0kadw

Mexicans always wear bright colors dyed from many things. People like earthy colors like light browns, and light greens, and reds. Mexicans used to wear bark garments as clothes when they could not afford fabric. Mexicans got the idea of earthy toned colors from the bark garments. Mexicans love bright colors because of its look but others prefer earthy tones.

Mexicans love dressing up for special celebrations. Most Mexicans wear costumes during the day of the dead. They mostly wear skeleton masks and long shawls and dresses. Stilt walkers wear long costumes and pants and skeleton masks to make themselves look like their old ancestors. I love Mexican clothing because of its fantastic colors and design its very beautiful.
