Ask anyone in the fashion set to tell you what the hottest vacation spot of 2014 is and we'd bet our lives they'd say Tulum. This small resort town just south of Cancun on the Mexican Riviera is the one of the trendiest destinations in the world inspiring us to try and get into character.
In the spirit of Mexico's folk art and artisanal craft culture, we rounded up playful and tribal-printed pieces that have us ready to hop on the next flight to the Riviera Maya. In the meantime, we'll happily sport these huarache sandals, embroidered dresses and printed swimsuits everywhere from Malibu to Manhattan. Each of these summer staples—the straw hat, reflective sunglasses and beach coverup—has a touch of the vibrant design elements that make traditional Mexican culture so colorful.
