We’re at the height of summer music festivals whether you’ve already attended Chicago’s Lollapalooza, San Francisco’s Outsidelands or awaiting to attend First City Festival in Monterey or Sacramento’s Launch Music Festival. Everyone’s got the buzz and the hippy-bohemian trend is booming.
A summer music festival staple is a cute bralette. A simple black bralette is always a great basic to layer under tanks or crotchet tops. I’ve been drooling over bralettes at Only Hearts—I continue to save for them because they are quality and so cute for a peek-a-boo of something extra for your outfit. They also have adorable lace crop camis that are great layering pieces. Don’t be afraid to show some skin when it’s scorching hot outside—you can wear a nude bra underneath your cami or bralette and it is the perfect top to pair with high-waisted shorts for a festival.
It seems so obvious, but a sick pair of high-waisted shorts are a must-have for not only festival season, but summer as well. I am in love with these UNIF shorts that are a very feminine cotton candy pink, but have a masculine touch with big oversized studs. I recently featured these shorts on my blog and fell in love with them after trying them on. Try rocking a statement short this summer and keep it clean with a white crop top to balance out the craziness you have going on with your shorts. Slip some crazy tights on underneath if you’re attending a festival with colder weather, or with cold nights to keep warm.
This Fashionista finished off with a lightweight cardigan, which is an all-day adventure essential because of those nippy summer nights—especially for San Francisco’s Outsidelands that just occurred this past weekend. Now add a backpack with a ton of pockets and you’re set for any festival. Urban Outfitters has a great variety of backpacks that are also great for school as well. They carry simple faux leather designs as well as funky prints if you’re going for a statement piece.
