WHAT TO WEAR: Festival

What to Wear

It’s officially springtime in North Carolina which means it’s the season of festivals. Downtown Raleigh always has different types of festivals occurring so it’s important you have an outfit to wear to them. Whether it’s a food and drink festival or a music festival, looking cute and trendy is a must.

Boho style is totally fitting for a festival outfit and this Fashionista sported that style perfectly. This Fashionista wore a crochet-detailed white dress. The sweetheart neckline of the dress looks great with her facial shape. The length of the dress is also perfect for a festival because it shows a little leg, yet isn’t inappropriately short. Paired with the dress is a floral kimono with three quarter length sleeves. Kimonos are a very popular trend nowadays because they come in super cool prints and are light and airy.  The convenient thing about this ensemble is that if the festival begins during the day you can wear the dress alone and once the sun goes down you can throw the kimono over it to provide some warmth.

As for accessories, it’s important that you stick to a minimal look if you’re trying to capture the boho style. Simplicity is key and this Fashionista nailed it. She is wearing a funky pair of tan wedges and gold stud earrings. To complete the boho look, she rocked the middle part with beachy waves.

One Simple Change: This boho outfit can easily be converted into a more professional ensemble for wearing to a presentation. Simply swap the wedges for a pair of gold Tory Burch flats and trade the kimono for a tan blazer. Lastly, convert the beach waves into a sophisticated sock bun. With a few trendy basics in your wardrobe, the boho look is easy to capture and very versatile.
