Dia de Los Muertos, aka Day of the Dead for those of you who don’t have a basic grasp of Spanish, is the Mexican holiday in which friends and family gather together to honor and remember lost loved ones. The occasion has gradually acquired a distinctive, bold and colorful aesthetic, which could be partially due to its Aztec origins. But bright colors these days are just an absolute nightmare to pull off. Making sure the shades complement your skin tone, avoiding the textbook error of being mistaken for a clown – nothing cool about any of that. Keep well away from the dangers and instead get yourself a crisp black and white outfit that still embodies the spirit(s) of Dia de Los Muertos.
