While the summertime is coming to an end, there’s always the promise of chillier days that require more and more layers to adorn our bodies. Although the added articles of clothing can make you look like a human burrito, accessories can always provide the extra glam to turn that 5-year-old washed out coat into a brand-new look. You can support Latino-owned businesses this fall by shopping jewelry that, not only fills the pocket of our community, but allow you to wear your Latinx identity as well.
From bamboo earrings to pendant necklaces, here are five stores you can visit to get your fall bling.
Hija de tu Madre
