Baja jackets have been the fashion flock's casual, chic cover-up of choice for several seasons running—and there's no better time to wear one than this coming Sunday. It's a perfect pick if you're celebrating the holiday shoreside or poolside.
The mere notion of wearing two Southwestern prints in tandem is intimidating, we know. But it's surprisingly doable—especially if you anchor the look with otherwise preppy, clean pieces, like a crisp white tee and a cool color-blocked cross-body.
Prefer just a hint of print? A Southwestern-patterned moto jacket fits the bill, especially when worn over a breezy maxi dress. Add interest via embellishment—here, we chose studded sandals and a sparkling statement necklace that plays off the jacket trim's subtle hints of pink.
Headed to a park or outdoor cookout for Cinco de Mayo? Try a pair of patterned shorts like these—unlike a dress or skirt, they'll allow you to sprawl out on the lawn with ease, plus the color combo will mask even the gnarliest of grass stains. Team them with a buttoned-all-the-way-up sleeveless chambray shirt with a bright Aztec-inspired necklace layered on top.
Going someplace slightly fancier on May 5? Mix two eye-catching embroidered pieces, like this gorgeous red silk top and pom-pom-trimmed clutch, balancing the look with neutral pumps and ultra-slimming black skinny denim.
