Hello there 🙂
I would like to start this article with the remark that I love Mexico City (with a capital letter L). This is the third trip I have made to the Mexican capital, which is getting better and better each time. The The city has experienced a strong cultural awakening and experienced an influx of young people who are reviving the local art, party and fashion world. There is no shortage of cultural activities – from contemporary museums, modern architecture, an incredible restaurant and a cocktail scene to shopping! From local markets to luxury boutiques, the city has a booming fashion scene that is clearly reflected in the city's residents.
What do you pack when you plan a trip to Mexico City this autumn? Coincidentally, this time of year is a wonderful time to experience sunny, dry and comfortable temperatures during the 70's during the day (and in the 50's at night) – so light shifts are a must. It should also be noted that the city has a height of 7382 meters, which means that it is always a bit cooler and drier than its neighbors on the coast, but the sun is strong all year round. So do not forget to bring your sunglasses with you.
I generally think that the locals of Mexico City are casual yet stylish and a little more conservative in their fashion choices. Many women prefer skirts, jeans and trousers shorts, and at night they definitely try to disguise themselves.
I recently received the D.F. for the Mexico City Fashion Week: Scroll down to see everything I've packed and the most important things I can recommend to make your vacation as enjoyable and stylish as possible.
From casual T-shirts to colorful blouses, you'll want to pack a handful of lightweight tops and thinner (but warm) layers for hot afternoons and cooler evenings. Make sure your options can easily be combined with jeans, pants and skirts.
You'll probably be walking a lot in Mexico City (and there's no shortage of uneven sidewalks and cobblestone streets) so a comfortable pair of shoes (you do not mind getting caught in the rain) is a must. I packed some sneakers, elegant, comfortable homes, chic boots, and a few beautiful, versatile sandals.
A lightweight and versatile blazer is relaxed and gives any outfit an instant polish. A denim jacket is also a great option to have on hand. I would also recommend a trench coat or raincoat, as it can still rain in the dry season in the fall of unpredictable, especially in the late afternoon.
You'll be using your jeans in Mexico City on a large scale (opt for one with some stretch for extra comfort). For the evening you also need a nice pair of pants – I have taken a cool pair of leather.
A pleated midi skirt that you can wear at the top or bottom is the perfect garment for t-shirts, blouses and light knitwear. Wear it during the day with sneakers or flats and at night with high-heeled boots.
Pack some effortless cotton dresses for a pleasant autumn walk in Chapultepec Park followed by a drink in Roma.
The inhabitants of Mexico love accessories. Beautify your outfits with fancy gold jewelry, a cool poncho scarf wrap and sunglasses. Bring a pair of earrings to spend a nice evening.
