It’s Festival Season!
Although I didn’t make it to Coachella this past month, I didn’t let that stop me from being inspired by festival styles. Of course, the Saturday night NYC version must be adapted to the environment, i.e. you won’t catch me with double buns wearing a crocheted one-piece in the middle of Manhattan, but there are so many fun ways to incorporate a little festival flare into your Spring/Summer wardrobe. Here’s one I put together for a recent night out on the LES.
With plans for a decadent steak dinner at Bowery Meat Company followed by cocktails at The Wren with our favorite couple on the LES, I knew I could get away with something a little less formal. To create a NYC appropriate festival inspired look, I wore a black bodycon button through short sleeved midi dress with a studded western belt and southwestern tassel earrings. To add a little color, I carried an embroidered minaudiere with the prettiest floral and bead details and wore red retro sunglasses. Finally, to complete the look, I threw on a pair of black suede strappy heeled sandals and a classic denim jacket.
Who says you can’t incorporate a little festival flare into your everyday look?
