Traditionally Mexican women wore clothing which was normally very simple with garnishes of color. The Huipil, a tunic-like dress, and other types of enredos were very typical pre-Columbian garb. Originally, more often than not, these dresses were made mostly from cotton however following the Spanish colonization of Mexico, silks and wools started to become more popular as clothing material. Traditional Mexican women´s clothing regularly includes lots of ornate embroidery, often including images and patterns that have symbolic meaning attached to them. Now they where usually normal clothes like us.

Typically men´s clothing is not as colorful as women´s. In fact, typical pre-Columbian clothing is hard to find today. This is because men often went with little or no clothing using mainly a sarape in the certain areas of Mexico. When the Spanish arrived in Mexico, one of the first things they did was to clothe men and getting them to wear pants and shirts. They also wore ponchos. They where normal clothes like us now.
