Feminine Street Style in Mexico & How to Pack for International Travel

Get Inspired To Dress Your Best From Departures to Arrivals

In this post I’ll be sharing feminine street style inspiration for your next trip from Canada to Mexico and beyond. I’ll also be breaking down some of my top travel tips for packing in a sustainble and efficient way for trips that are two weeks or less.

Personal Travel Tip: I rarely check my luggage and utlize my carry on as much as humanely possible. It saves me money and time at check in and getting out of the airport. It also saves me a lot of space and unneccessary weight to bear when I am traveling to enhance my life experience.

As a virtual stylist my role is to show you how to unlock the confidence you need to dress to impress yourself everyday and unlock the life experience you want to be living.

Read on below to better understand how you can get inspired to pack like a pro and dress your best.

Safety Tips

When it comes to traveling in style, especially as a solo female traveler safety is always something you must consider before and during your trip. Mexico is no exception as the country is riddled with drug wars since the 1970s and human trafficking.

These are serious issue and touches every piece of the land in this country from beach resorts to rural farmland. It’s not exculsive to Mexico but this is one country to watch out for these issues in.

Basic Travel Tips for Single Women Traveling in Mexico

  • Purchase travel insurance before your trip in case you get any injuries on your trip
  • Purchase an RFID Chip Protector Card for your wallet to avoid your card from getting scammed in transit
  • Always share your location on Whatsapp or iPhone with someone you trust in the country you currently reside in
  • If you change locations update your home contact of your address change
  • Research each area/location you plan to visit in advance to check the walking score/reviews/etc…
  • Use GoogleMaps for areas you have yet to visit to determine if the areaa are clean,maintained, and looks secure before you go
  • Do not go out at night by yourself!
  • Travel in groups of 2 or more when you do go out at night

Lastly use your gut instincts on your trip. Women are generally much more in tune with their instincts than our male counterparts based on our ablity to emapthize and pick up on social cues more quickly. If it feels like a “No” then please do not GO!

How to Dress for Pyramid Tour?

When you’re going for a Pyramid tour and you don’t want to look like a tourist your footwear says a lot about the type of experiece you want to have.

In my outfit below you can see I opted for white flat mules with gold buckle hardware. My only regret with this look was that my mules where not slingbacks to hold my heels back in place to avoid slippage. Also, I didn’t realize the terrain would be so rugged.

Personally, I would have been better suited with a slightly thicker rubber sole shoe for this occasion. R.I.P to my Apricot Mules that where scarificed to the Aztec Gods that day and did not make it past this trip due to pebble damage.

Behold the allure of a refined woman in Mexico, adorned in a lace top and a luxurious suede hat. Her poised stance and impeccable style leave a lasting impression.

How to Dress for a Day at the Museum?

When attending a Museum I highly reccomend being super unique (like myself) and using the architecture of your destination as your style inspiration.

I sourced my entire outfit for my day at the museum from Bershka in Mexico City while I was on my trip. My total look cost me under $50 CAD. I highly reccomend this retail location if you’re looking for a quick change on any budget and want a variety of pieces to piece together.

As you can see from the images below I used the silver metallic tone of the Museo de Soumaya in Mexico City as my main color inspiration and tone.
