Festival Style sounds weird right? To me festival style is whatever your going to be most comfortable in. For me that is long dresses, comfortable dancing shoes and a sweater for when the sun goes down. Here are few tips to keep you stylish and comfortable…
Coppertone Sport Sunscreen Spray SPF 30 // AG Pixie Short
Mossimo Hooded Sweatshirt // Madewell Scenic View Top // River Island Printed Maxi Dress
Someday’s Lovin Kimono // Mossimo Bustier Sweetheart Dress
Burt’s Bee’s Lip Balm // Tarte Amazonian Clay BB Tinted Moisturizer SPF 20 Sunscreen
Turquoise Leather Feather Dipped Gold Earings // Vintage Palm Trees Sunglasses
Chacos ZX/1 Yampa
Style – From festival to festival my “style” changes. For the Telluride Bluegrass Festival the weather can fluctuate from 80 degrees to 30 degrees and possibly snow, so its best to dress in layers. You are also sitting most of the time so a short dress just wont cut it. This year I’ll be packing longer dresses and shorts. If your headed to a festival like Wakarusa you want to be comfortable in the heat. For both I highly suggest a light weight kimono type sweater. Not to keep you warm, but to keep the sun off your shoulders and arms. Trust me, you will be happy you have one. I stray away from jeans just because I get too hot, so I prefer to wear a long skirt or dress and throw some leggings into my bag in case I get cold. White jeans shorts… forget about it. Oh, and never leave home without your raincoat!
Shoes – A few years ago I attended Austin City Limits, and it poured down rain. Lucky for me instead of wearing flip-flops I went with my Chacos. When it rained, that beautiful grass turns to mud, and flip-flops don’t last in the mud. They would get stuck and you ended up walking away without your shoes. How do you think Crocs got so popular! Crocs set up shop at Bonnaroo and every year when it rains people toss their Rainbows for Crocs. I find Crocs hideous so I stick with Chacos or a sandal with a back strap. For colder nights I love my Minnetokna Boots and Fryes. I also have a great pair of Nike Sneakers in bright colors that are always comfortable.
Accessories – I have been known to rock a head band but other than that I like to keep it simple. This is really just personal preference. I don’t wear long necklaces because when I dance they tend to hit me in the face. If your going to be outside all day and you fingers swell, leave your rings at home. Putting them in your purse runs the risk of losing them. Sunglasses are a must. Backpack, fanny pack or cross body and nothing too BIG. Please don’t be that girl with the giant purse knocking into everyone. Hats -pack what your look best, in for me its big floppy hats.
