As the famous rock song goes, “school’s out for summer!” For the next few months bid farewell to textbooks, exams and late night studying. Instead, free your calendar for catching rays at the beach, good old-fashioned summer nights and, of course, penciling in your favorite music festivals from Coachella to Lollapalooza. Whatever your taste in music, festival fashion is hitting the scene with full force this season. Through the use of fringes, feathers, vibrant embroideries and floral headpieces, concert-goers are embracing a creative, free-spirited attitude.
This week’s Fashionista epitomizes the artsy ideal as she kicks back and relaxes in her summertime concert look. She starts the look off right with metallic snakeskin sandals. In a neutral gray tone, this casual shoe choice is a great alternative to the standard flip flops for everyday wear. The Fashionista continues her effortlessly stylish outfit with distressed denim shorts in a high-waisted fit. Gone are the days where showing midriff during those hot summer days was the only way to stay cool and bare some skin. Instead, this season welcomes in high-waisted bottoms coupled with shorter length tops for a new take on a classic summertime look. This music lover does just that by pairing her jean shorts with a lightweight sleeveless blouse. To accessorize the look, she makes an immediate statement through her nonchalantly bold choices. Functionality comes into play, while not sacrificing trendiness, as she sports an oversized suede fringe bag. She carries on her artistic inspired mantra with a straw fedora and Ray-Ban aviators to stay cool, while simultaneously looking it as well.
Let this carefree attitude translate into your wardrobe through applying your favorite hippie chic aspects into your ensembles this musical season.
