WHAT TO WEAR: Festival

What to Wear

The best part about summer is festivals. From Coachella to Lalapalooza, music festivals across the nation bring fans of all types together to share a love for music. What I love about festivals is the fashion trends that show up. My favorite look this year at Coachella was feathered shoulders. Fashionistas took the risk of an extravagant accessory that stands out from everyone else.

Being out in the sun all day requires a big sun hat with a pair of statement sunglasses. Wether you’re walking on the streets of New York or at the beach in Los Angeles, you are bound to spot a wide-rimmed suede sun hat. Celebutantes like Kylie Jenner pair a sun hat with almost every outfit.

I spotted this Fashionista on the streets of Santa Monica by her combination of different textures and color pairing. Mustard yellow can be hard to pair with, but as a high-waisted skirt her choice of a simple black bandeau was perfect. This Fashionista’s accessory choice is strong. Easy to access with little bulk, her accessories are brilliant for a festival look that brings this outfit together. From the studded booties complementing her hunter sun hat to the short key necklace with a longer chain, she took her simple and cute outfit to the next level!

The watch is what makes the outfit. Being at a festival can become stressful if you are trying to make each show on time. Having a watch is always the best backup in case your cell phone dies.

One Simple Change: For a chilly night out kick it up a notch with a black lace kimono. It adds warmth and life to the outfit while keeping its natural vibe alive.
