Coachella might be over, but summer is just starting and that means festival season is also just kicking up! I think growing up in Arizona has definitely influenced my style toward being more laid back and West-coast-hippie-boho-chic influenced, so festival style is literally my jam. I get as excited about festival fashion as someone in fashion might get excited about NYFW. IT’S MY FAV!
This year, transparent textures such as lace, mesh and even ropes have dominated, oftentimes draped over one pieced bodysuits or bandeaus. Let those butt-cheeks out, ladies! Large, chunky booties often contrasted the sheer maxi dresses and skirts (something I’m not sure I could go for, I couldn’t imagine dancing and walking around all weekend in heels! How do people do this…) along with good ‘ol gladiator sandals.
@cassiebartho (I’m really into this designer Denisse M Vera‘s custom macrame dresses if you can’t tell! Saw people wearing her dresses at least three times, way out of my price range…:( )
Rhinestone face and body jewels are ever present, having replaced the flash tatts of years earlier. You can even find unique, gorgeous shapes and designs to purchase these days vs. using simple gems, etc. (check out The Gypsy Shrine) Patchy spots of bright body glitter are also everywhere, reflecting the hot sun. Popular placement includes the chest, shoulders, cheeks, and along the hair-part line! And speaking of hair, consider adding braid-hoops to your braids. (i.e. here from ASOS!)
@evelina THOSE STAR HAIR HOOPS THOUGH!
@cortney.erin Extra points on those talons
Jewelry and clothing become one in the form of filigree and chain-mail bralettes and halters, as well as body chains, which I find reminiscent of the silver aesthetic of boho accessories.
Here are a few other of my favorite overall looks from this year!
(Wow after bunching all these photos together, you really start to realize how similar everyone’s poses are, eh??)
FYI! After doing some research on where some of these outfits came from, some ran up the $600 range coming from custom designers I.E. those Denisse M Vera dresses…if you’re anything like me and are used to shopping for fast fashion trends at places such as Forever21 or H&M and are looking to diversify your options, great places to look that hover around the same price point include BoohooUSA, ASOS, & Lulu’s just to name a few! You can typically find almost any fashion trend you are looking for off of one of these sites or the other!
