Meg x RAICES: Cheerful Mexican Dresses With a Cause 

While fashion may not be top of mind in the eternal hellscape that is 2020, we like to think aspirationally here! And we also believe fashion can be an antidote to social malaise when you do things the right way (with a conscience). For these reasons, we sourced cheerful dresses from skilled artisans in Mexico to deliver a bit of joy and beauty with a side of activism. $10 from each Huipil Dress sold will go to RAICES which provides free and low-cost legal services to underserved immigrant children, families, and refugees. They operate on the frontlines providing legal services, social programs and bond assistance, because lest we forget, there are still children in ICE custody sleeping in cages during a global pandemic. 

And unless you are a straight up nudist who is #blessed to live alone (you do you!), we all have to put something on everyday; might as well make it something joyful, comfortable and fun!

Thanks to the striking embroidery, you don’t need much to elevate this casual dress. Here we simply paired it with classic white sneakers and round shades. Top it off with a cool messy bun and you're ready for a park hangout. 

Huipil Dress in Mustard

A great casual look is just as easy with summer slides and cool shades. Add some dimension with a summer hat or scarf. 

Huipil Dress in Pink

If you prefer to dress it up, we suggest pairing the dress with platform clogs (our favorite!), gold hoops and a sleek hairdo to balance out the look, and  boom, you're ready to ravish.
