STYLE GURU STYLE: Happy Hippie

STYLE GURU STYLE: Happy Hippie

Hello spring! You’ve finally arrived, oh how I’ve missed you. It’s fest season here in Athens, Ohio! For my non-Bobcats, fest season is the best time of year at Ohio University. It includes unlimited gatherings with your closest friends, dressing in the latest fashion trends, and experiencing some of the best musical performances of all time. No one would want to miss out on something like this.

For this fest look I am wearing a white off-the-shoulder blouse with a studded black fringe vest on top. The plain shirt really makes the studded vest pop and draws the focus onto the main part of the outfit: the shorts. These aztec high-waisted shorts are my favorite gem in my spring closet. They can bring any simple look to life, and they’re also very comfortable. The shorts make a statement and the other components of the outfit are a bonus. The outfit requires little or simple accessories because so much is happening with the shorts. I chose to pair the outfit with a silver circle choker tied with black strings. This necklace sets the flow of the black theme in the outfit from the shorts, to the vest, to the choker. All great outfits should have a good flow.

There’s nothing more satisfying than great friends, great weather, and great outfits. It surely makes the event even better than it was before. Especially if you’re in Athens and it’s fest season. I hope you enjoy this look as much as I did wearing it!
