What to Wear In Mexico 

What to Wear In Mexico 

With summer just around the corner, it’s time to refresh your swimsuit wardrobe! These winter months can seem to last forever, but the time for a beach destination vacay has finally arrived. Whether you’re a loyal BeachCandy Babe or a new customer, we have a large assortment for swimsuits and accessories that we know will be perfect for your next getaway. 

At BeachCandy, we personally love a visit to Mexico with its stunning beaches, gorgeous natural landscape, and delicious food. When we think of what to pack for Mexico, we envision boho chic, a style grounded in the lush environment that surrounds you when traveling there. We’ve selected some of the pieces that we think are essentials when visiting our neighbors to the south. Happy scrolling! 

The Best Swim Pieces for a Mexico Vacation

GENEVIEVE Crochet Bikini Top

If you’re looking for a versatile piece that you can wear in and out of the pool, the GENEVIEVE is for you. This is one of our newer pieces from the BeachCandy Ranch collection, and it’s on track to becoming a customer favorite. 

The crochet texture gives the top an automatically relaxed vibe, with intricate details that catch the eye. This bikini top doubles as a swimsuit and regular crop top, so you can go straight from the pool to a casual dinner with friends when wearing this piece.

JENNA Handkerchief Tankini Top

We know that the struggle to find an attractive tankini that also provides great coverage is a struggle and that’s why we created the JENNA. You can still show off some skin with an open back but get some security over the tummy.

 There’s seven different colors and patterns to choose from; for a lovely vacation to Mexico, we recommend "Suede," "White," "Wild Thang," or "Black." Designed with a built-in bra shelf, you won’t ever worry about accidental slipping when wearing the JENNA. We suggest mixing and  matching this amazing tankini top with the RYDER French Cut Bikini Bottoms that come in four colors.

LEGEND Beaded Bikini Bottom

Take a look at our classic "BritB" bikini bottoms, reinvented with a beaded twist! Made in either the cheeky or full coverage cut, these bottoms are sure to fulfill your every need for a Mexico trip. This product is available in the colors "Clay" (pictured above) or "Suede" (beaded with stunning turquoise). 

If you need more convincing, this is the bikini bottom that really boosted BeachCandy Swimwear’s brand and expanded our customer base -- all thanks to being named Editor’s Pick in Sports Illustrated. This piece is a must have on your Mexico packing list, with its earthy tones and delicate beaded detailing.

SAMANTHA Sexy One Piece Swimsuit

Sometimes you just don’t want to wear a two piece swimsuit; you’d rather wear a one piece that you know is secure and will show only some skin. The problem is, fashionable one piece bathing suits can be hard to find. 

We’re proud of our SAMANTHA one piece swimsuit because it’s a perfect blend of all those things: it’s stylish, supportive, and the corset-style lacing reveals a little bit of skin. Fitted with two durable adjustable straps and high thigh cuts with full coverage on the rear. 

Boho Casual Cover Ups

JESSICA Mesh Cover Up

Made out of a gorgeous neutral-toned knitted material, the JESSICA was made to be worn on vacation in Mexico. This piece is the embodiment of boho chic: a simple design with a sexy twist in the thigh high slit. 

You’ll feel like you’re wearing nothing in this cover up, thanks to the lightweight nature of the fabric. The JESSICA will gently hug your curves, showing off your beautiful body, and is easy to slip on thanks to the cross back straps.

If you want to use this cover up after a dip in the ocean, say at a lunch, we’d recommend matching this product with the TULUM Halter Wrap Bikini Top. Not only do we love the TULUM piece, but what better way to visit Mexico then by wearing a swim piece that was directly inspired by the place?

BALI Crochet Tassel Tunic

We love the new crochet trend that’s hitting the scene at the moment, and this old BeachCandy Swimwear Cover Up hits the nail on the head. The openness and sheerness of this garment lets your BeachCandy swimsuit shine underneath this cover up. 

You’re sure to get your money’s worth if you buy the BALI. Created with a lively fringe and a loose fit, you’ll have a full range of motion, which means you can take this cover up anywhere. These summer months can be really warm but you’ll still want the coverage that a cover up can give you, so the BALI is the ideal piece for this summertime. 

Southwestern style cover up

BOHO Beach Cover Up

Like it says in its name, the BOHO Beach Cover Up is a boho chic product that gracefully drapes your body while also showing off your gorgeous BeachCandy swimsuit. The geometric patterns give off a free spirited vibe, perfect for a vacation in Mexico. 

Within the threads of this product is a sparkly material, which means that you’ll literally be glowing when you wear this cover up. We’d match up this boho dream with the WEEKENDER Reversible Thong Bikini Set, an amazing two-for-one deal. The simplicity of this bikini set will fit in perfectly with the stunning natural beauty of Mexico.

MARTINA Beach Cover Up Pants

The relaxed feel of these pants aren’t the only thing they bring to the table. The waistband has been designed in the fold over style, which means no more digging into the hips. These pants will sit comfortably on your body, as they should! The MARTINA is available in sizes XS to XXL, and is sure to flatter any figure. 

Created with a slight wide flare, this product will look stunning with any shoe you pair it with. The lace patterns are delicate but the fabric is durable, so you can wear these pants worry free at the beach or by the pool. Or while you explore the area around you, seeing all the sights that Mexico has to offer, or trying some amazing local food. 

We love pairing the MARTINA with the GENEVIEVE Crochet Bikini Top, as pictured above. Play around and find the perfect combination that works for you! 

Beautiful Accessories to Complete Your Vacay Outfit

PLAYA Women's Straw Cowboy Hat

There’s a playful combination of Western style, cute plaid and sun protection in this PLAYA sun hat. Another style of this straw hat is available -- in a lovely ombre effect with a band composed of wooden beads and faux leather threading. 

You can take this piece to the beach, the ranch, or even just to the poolside. These cowboy style hats will look perfect on a vacation in Mexico, bringing a little bit of the West to Mexico. The neutral tones of these hats will match any outfit you decide to pair it with, making it the perfect vacation companion.

These bangles are everything you could want: intricate, subtle, and glamorous. The warm undertones of the bronze material are going to look perfect in the natural environment of Mexico, when you’re bathed in the warmth of the sun.

If we had to choose a favorite accessory from our new BeachCandy Ranch collection, the BARBADOS Head Scarf is at the top of the list. The material is luxuriously smooth and durable, and you can style it in a variety of ways. 

You can use it as a classic head scarf, a tie-on accessory for your favorite purse, a decorative band for a beach hat, or even a tube-top style cover up. There are five different patterns available, each one unique stylish.

SAYULITA Straw Fedora Hat

Here’s a combination of practicality and boho-chic, made of a gorgeous earthy toned straw material interwoven with turquoise and gray colors. The wide brim of the SAYULITA provides fantastic protection from the sun’s harsh UV rays. 

You can bring this amazing hat to the pool, wear it while strolling through the Mexican beach towns, or when hiking through the forest. This piece can also transition seamlessly from day to night -- it’d look stunning paired with a flowing casual dress.
