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.

Style Spotlight: Beau Ties

Imagine the craziest most fun pattern you can think of…now imagine that pattern or print fastened into a well-crafted classic-cut neck or bow tie…what you get is Beau Ties. Beau Ties, a Vermont-based company, offers its customer neck-wear in a wide variety of cuts and styles in an even wider variety of fun, bold patterns and at an affordable price with pieces starting at $40.00.

Storyline:

In 1993, Bill Kenerson began crafting a small variety of fun, attractive bow ties for himself out of dissatisfaction with what retailers at the time had to offer. Then he took a risk, put himself out there, and began selling his quality pieces in a one-page mailer. The response was all around positive and as word spread, demand increased, and eventually Kenerson and his wife devoted themselves to establishing Beau Ties as a legitimate brand specializing in neck-wear and devoted to quality and craftsmanship. Even as the company and product line  have expanded, and the company changed ownership, the commitment to quality has remained intact in each and every one of their products which now include menswear items, accessories, and a few women’s fashion items.
