WHAT TO WEAR: Festival

What to Wear

We’ve now entered the last month of summer which means the school year is slowly approaching. What better way to end the summer with a bang than to attend a festival? Whether it’s a day full of music and art or just soaking in the sun with friends, festivals attract a diverse audience that sets the scene for lots of fashion freedom. This Fashionista has her festival outfit perfected and is definitely ready to rock and stand out from the crowd.

One common factor of festivals is that they take place outdoors which means you’ll want to be prepared for a day in the sun. To shield her face from the rays, this Fashionista threw on sunglasses and a simple black hat, a decision that is both smart and stylish!

When it comes to footwear, you have to remember you’re most likely going to be on your feet for a long period of time. This Fashionista chose to wear heels which do complement her outfit, but it’s also important to choose a pair that is comfortable too. A wedge or chunky heels like these are probably your best bet.

This Fashionista makes a bold fashion statement by wrapping a circle scarf in a twist, transforming it into an open top. To balance the amount of skin she shows on top, she has much more coverage below with a wide leg trouser. If you’re going to do the opposite, say wearing a pair of cheeky shorts, make sure to cover up on top. This is an important outfit balancing act that will keep you looking chic rather than scandalous at any occasion.

Don’t be afraid to mix contrasting textures and patterns; in fact, embrace these types of fashion risks! This Fashionista chose to pair a cream sheer lace with a leopard print top which is a fun and eye-catching decision. Follow suit by blending a polka-dot cropped top with a striped skirt. Just make sure to keep your color scheme similar, such as blending neutrals or pairing lighter and darker shades of one color.

One Simple Change: These pants would also look great paired with a bikini for a day at the beach. Keep the sunglasses and hat. Just trade the heels for a pair of sandals and throw on your favorite swimsuit underneath.
