Festival Fashion

It’s early summer which means the start of festival season. While the theme and feel of each festival is unique, there are a few things every festival has in common: music, food, and fashion. The fashion I speak of is not the fashion you see on city streets, runways, or magazines.The foundation of festival style is the necessity for ease of mobility and overall comfort, which is why you see so many people wearing looser fitting garments in light weight fabrics. Festival fashion has grown organically over the years and has inspired it’s own genre of style that speaks to the spirit of what festivals and festival culture are really about: being free-spirited and stepping out of society for a few hours, or days.

While you may see people at festivals wearing similar things (girls wearing high-waist-ed shorts, tops with fringe, headbands, flowers in their hair, etc. and men wearing tank tops, swim trunks, Bob Marley tees, etc) don’t feel the need to mimic or copy these fashions necessarily. Festivals are a  place to abandon all rules, go against the norm, and wear whatever your heart desires. Just remember to stick to comfortable,light, breathable fabrics, and strive for styles with good vibes.

1 for the money, 2 for the SHOE…

There’s no denying that Elvis made more than an impact on American society through his music, pelvic thrusting, and unique sense of style. The most iconic element of the king’s style is undeniably his blue suede shoes. While you can’t have Elvis’ blue kicks (unless you have 80,000 extra bones in the bank), I am happy to tell you that blue suede shoes have made a commendable come-back and you can now get almost any style of shoe in blue suede, and at an affordable price (relative to 80 grand).

  • For a night out, pair a nice dark, slim-cut, cuffed jeans with a chukka style boot in blue suede, and on top try a button-down in a grey, light blue, or salmon. You might also try a v-neck tee and blazer on top.
  • During the work week, a grey trouser, brown belt, navy sports coat, and dress shirt set the stage for a blue suede wingtip.
  • For a business casual or casual look, opt for the loafer or boat shoe in blue suede. Pair it with a nice chino for the office or a more casual jean for running errands or grabbing lunch.
