Every day, we put on clothes without really thinking about where these individual pieces come from historically. After decades, sometimes centuries, certain garments and accessories just get absorbed into American/mainstream culture and their roots often go with them. This is when some good fashion history research needs to be done and shared.
There are so many pieces of clothing and accessories that millions buy and wear (and that you probably own) that come from Latin America and Spain (or both). And this provenance isn’t pointed out or celebrated as much as it should be. We should know about them, and so should the rest of the world. So, we are sharing 25 style pieces that we should definitely take credit for.
