Some things never go out of fashion. Like traditional clothes. Just a few days ago, Miss Mexico posted photos of their 2020 contestants rocking designer-made versions of the country's traditional outfits and they quickly went viral.

But it's not just the models and the costumes that made these images so stunning. The photographers did an excellent job of capturing the women, too. By taking them outside instead of to a studio, they really enhanced the link between the land and the culture it gave birth to.

In total, there were 32 contestants competing to advance to the next round. People chose 6 (Miss Sonora, Miss Michoacan, Miss Guanajuato, Miss Estado De México, Miss Quintana Roo, Miss Guerrero) by reacting to their photos on social media, and 6 were picked by the judges (Miss Colima, Miss Sinaloa, Miss Coahuila, Miss Campeche, Miss Nayarit, Miss Oaxaca).

The Miss Mexico Grand Finale will be held on October 31st.

"The regional costumes are made by designers and they are the ones who will keep them," a Miss Mexico spokesperson told Bored Panda.

"The judges were foreigners, so they have had the opportunity to learn about the country's regions and soak up all the culture and legends the costumes had to offer."

Experts say traditional Mexican clothing has both native and European elements. The fibers of choice across the country are cotton, bark, and agave (which were known and used by native Mexican pre-Hispanic civilizations), as well as wool and silk (introduced by the Spanish later).

Probably the best-known piece of traditional Mexican clothing is a tall and wide-brimmed hat designed to shade one from the harmful rays of the sun; the sombrero. Traditionally reserved for cowboys (vaqueros) and mariachis, the sombrero is now worn by many and has become a symbol of the country.
