Every year, from September 15th through October 15th, the government honors and commemorates the Latinx community. Their contributions to the United States are not only recognized, but celebrated. If you’re a Latinx like me, then you know it’s basically a month-long fiesta.

While the official name for this holiday is National Hispanic Heritage Month, in more recent years, people have coined the more inclusive term, Latinx Heritage Month. It’s a better alternative to the word “Hispanic,” which has a negative connotation and is a more white-washed term.

To celebrate the Latinx community, we rounded up 19 pieces from our fave Latinx-owned fashion shops. All of these are small businesses, too. So you can look and feel good when you support these brands. There are a bunch of cheeky tees that will speak to your inner chingona, statement earrings that are one of a kind, and cute dad hats that will hide the fact you’re despeinada. Let’s get to shopping, shall we?
