TREND: Fresh and Fashionable Festival Garb

New York City is a hot bed for outdoor summertime concerts and festivals. These exciting events are a prime time to show off our trendy new threads, but long days and nights require smart choices when it comes to the duds we dare don.

In order to dance the night away, it is important to dress comfortably without compromising your personal style. This Fashionista’s look is perfect for a daytime concert or festival. It is the effortless balance of chic and casual. Her soft, breezy, cuffed-sleeve tunic allows her to breathe easy in a crowded arena, likely permeated with body heat. Her shorts are slouchy and comfortable allowing plenty of movement to dance, walk around, or enjoy carnival rides, and the dark color fens off any fear of potential stains or spills. This stylish scholar adds a lightweight triangle scarf which is perfect for events that carry on into the cooler evenings. She pulls the look together with a pair of black patent leather gladiator sandals, which spice up the look and add extra security and support for a gal set to be on her feet all day. Finally, this Fashionista chose a compact clutch, which is the perfect size to fit a cell phone, keys, IDs, ChapStick, her ticket stub and any other necessities for the event, without all the bulk of an inconvenient tote bag.

Also worth noting: she flaunts two patterned pieces on top, a risky choice—but this Fashionista does it perfectly, opting for neutral faded navy and caramel shades that compliment rather than clash.

For a variety of cute patterned tunics like this one, check out department stores like Nordstrom and Bloomingdales, and for fun summer scarves, head to Abercrombie & Fitch or Urban Outfitters.
