Celebrate Latinx Heritage Month by shopping these bomb Latinx-owned fashion brands
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?
