What to Wear in Mexico

Mexico is an extremely diverse country, and what you will be wearing depends largely on what you plan to be doing. However, there are a few general tips that you can always keep in mind, which is why OROGOLD has put together this handy guide on what to wear in Mexico.

What to Wear to Mexico’s Beaches
It goes without saying that no matter what your Mexico itinerary may be like, at some point or another you will find yourself on one of the country’s many beaches. A swimsuit is essential, as is a light cover up to keep your skin protected from the hot sun. If you are heading to a sandy beach, beach sandals will keep your feet from burning up, although if you are planning to visit a rockier beach with coral reefs, OROGOLD would advise that you wear sea shoes. If you plan to be taking part in water sports, it may be worth bringing your own mask and snorkel if you have one, because even though these are easy to rent, there is nothing quite like having your own mask that fits your face perfectly. You may also want to consider bringing a t-shirt to wear while you are snorkeling, so that you don’t end up with a sunburnt back.

What to Wear to Mexico’s Colonial Towns
Mexico is full of colonial towns, and most of these experience spring-like climates throughout the year. This means that it can often get chilly in the evenings, so OROGOLD would recommend wearing light layers that you can add or remove when necessary. The colonial towns are also famous for their beautifully cobbled streets, but these can be a nightmare if you are wearing the wrong shoes, so be sure to wear some good walking shoes when you know you will be exploring a certain area. The colonial towns are also home to many religious and indigenous sites, so remember to dress modestly and respectfully when visiting any of these. If you find yourself higher up in elevation, OROGOLD would suggest wearing a hat, as the mountain air can often mask the harshness of the sun’s rays.

What to Wear to Mexico’s Cities
Once you enter a Mexican city, the clothes around you will start to seem more sophisticated. Mexican cities are extremely cosmopolitan, and this is reflected in the attire that people wear. Casual yet trendy is key for during the days, and, if you are heading for a night on the town, feel free to go all out and completely dress up. Many cities are still quite laid-back, but the outfits worn are still much more stylish than those you will find outside of the city. OROGOLD also suggests keeping a raincoat or an umbrella with you, as you don’t want to be caught by surprise during one of the brief afternoon thunderstorms.

No matter what you may choose to wear in Mexico, OROGOLD reminds you that sunscreen is absolutely essential. With the right outfit, and your skin well protected from the sun, you will be able to make the most of all that this beautifully diverse country has to offer.


Our Top Gold Bikini Picks – OROGOLD Reviews

OROGOLD loves the color gold, and this also applies to gold bikinis, because not only do they complement every skin tone, but they are also a great way to ensure that you stand out from the crowd this summer. From Topshop to Herve Leger, here are some of OROGOLD’s top gold bikini picks to help you get ready for swimsuit season.

Top Gold Bikini Picks

Metallic Gold Bikinis
A metallic gold bikini will have you shimmering like a goddess on the beach, as the sun will practically radiate off your body. OROGOLD loves the metallic triangle bikini from Moschino, with wide straps to ensure that there are no unfortunate accidents if you dive into the water. The elasticated trims mean that the fit is always flawless, and the shade of gold used is truly luxurious. For those who want a metallic bandeau bikini, have a look at the U-bar bandeau bikini top from OndadeMar, which features a 24K gold-plated bar at the centre. For those who want to go metallic and strapless at the same time, Lisa Vogel has a bikini set, which can be purchased at Neiman Marcus, featuring a strapless sweetheart neckline, with low-rise hipster bottoms. For something a little different, have a look at Topshop’s metallic cropped bikini set, which is cut in an extremely flattering way.

Gold Sequinned Bikinis
Another great way to truly sparkle this summer is to opt for a gold sequinned bikini. However, when cut or designed in certain ways, gold sequinned bikinis can often end up looking tacky, but luckily, we have found one that we absolutely love. The Herve Leger Carmella sequin bikini is cut in the brand’s signature bandage style, and is embellished all over with sequins. The wide straps give the bikini a modest feel, which makes the sequins look glamorous rather than cheap. This bikini can be purchased at Saks Fifth Avenue, either in store or online from their website. Those of you who aren’t looking to splash out as much on your swimwear need not worry, as we have also found a fabulous gold sequinned bikini by Blue Life, available on Asos, which still looks glam but has a sportier feel.

Gold Halter Bikini
A halter bikini is flattering on almost every body type, and the fact that it can be so easily adjusted means that it is also much easier to find one that fits perfectly. Here at OROGOLD, we still can’t forget the gold bikini that Rihanna rocked last year, and it is definitely one that has been on our wishlist for this summer. Designed by Charlie by Matthew Zink, the Farrah bikini is sexy and stylish at the same time, and is fully lined for extra comfort.

Gold bikinis are much rarer than other colors, and this is because it takes a certain amount of confidence to pull them off. By choosing a bikini that has been well designed and impeccably crafted, you will ensure that the fit is just right, flattering your body in all the right places.
