WHAT TO WEAR: Festival

What to Wear

Festival season is finally upon us, Fashionistas/os. From block parties to full-blown music festivals, this warm weather brings the city social scene back to life. The only thing just as exciting as the sunshine and music themselves is the unique fashion that festivals curate. If you’ve been on social media at all this month—remember when Instagram turned into Coachella-gram?—you know that at festivals, anything goes. It’s the perfect time to let your inner hippie free with a style you’ve been dying to try.

I spotted this Fashionista rocking a trend I’ve wanted to experiment with for so long: chic overalls. This is a tricky trend to master, but with the right pair of overalls and a few basic accessories, this Fashionista shows how effortless the look can be. She is festival-ready in an adorable pair of black American Apparel overalls with gold zipper detail. She pairs this statement look with a simple black and white striped tee to add in a pop of pattern. A simple pair of black loafers finishes off the look, keeping it casual and understated. To tote around festival necessities like a blanket or packed lunch, this Fashionista carries a leather, vintage-inspired backpack.

To imitate this Fashionista’s look like a pro, begin your search for the perfect pair of overalls that you feel comfortable and confident in. This Fashionista opted for a black pair for a modern take on the trend, but for those brave of (fashion) heart, rock a distressed denim pair to take this chic trend to the next level. Throw in a splash of pattern with a striped or floral tee and complete the look with your comfiest pair of flats or loafers. With this whimsical and carefree look, you’re sure to have a blast and turn heads.

One Simple Change: To switch up this look for your best friend’s birthday party, pair the overalls with strappy high-heeled sandals and a sheer blouse to add a little drama.
