When you are travelling to a place which has a different culture and social values, it is always a good idea to understand how the local people dress. Otherwise, you will end up looking like a complete outsider, and this may be an open invitation to all kinds of trouble.
Here are some tips and tricks that will not only help you to blend in with the people but also turn many heads towards you in admiration.

1) Whatever your perceptions are shorts are not cool in Mexico City, as it is a fairly conservative society. Instead, opt for skirts which are more appropriate. The same thing goes for the khaki pants with innumerable pockets; those pants belong in Africa not in Mexico.

2) Mexico City is situated at higher altitudes so the nights are mostly chilly, therefore it is better to add layers to your clothing to keep warm even if it gets cold.

3) The key fabric here is cotton, to get a stylish yet comfortable look team up a cotton shirt or blouse with trendy jeans or casual pants and you are good to go. A stylish scarf will seal the look.

4) Wear plenty of sunscreen and glasses as the sun is harsh in these parts.

5) Another important thing to blend in with the female population is that, ladies here like to be well groomed and wear ample make-up and jewellery even for a small outing, and the shoes also play a major part in their appearance.

Therefore, keeping in mind few things while dressing up will not only get you better treatment and deals, but it will also keep you safe.
