Compensation for today’s post was provided by Target, but the expressed opinions are my own.
Festival fashion is freeing. It is an opportunity to cut loose, take a risk, and be someone different, if only for a weekend. It should be easy, breezy, and whatever you define as cool. You should play with proportions, tinker with typical takes. Add layers, remove layers; let it hang, let it slide. You should use it as an excuse to do all the things you’ve secretly wanted to do: embrace extra fringe, shorten all the hems, add adornments to your hair, take on a trend you feel too old to take on. Anything and everything goes; use that pass to go wild.
On the vibe spectrum, you can go either dark and moody or bright and bold, when thinking of festival fashion. I found myself on the darker side, gravitating toward blacks and layers to drape. I like the uniformity and ease of black, white, and denim. It is a sure-fire way to stand out by projecting a hardly-care attitude. There is a nod to being trendy while also saying, I’m just here for the music.
As much as I love black, I also love to feel dressed up when going out. I would feel just as good going into a concert a little bolder, a little dressier, in an off-the-shoulder top. This look is youthful and flouncier, making me feel comfortable and flirty. This one would easily add to the enjoyment of my sway as I jam along.
