Summer Music Festival
Dear readers, it┬'s time to prepare.
The season of music festivals is upon us and we want to make sure that you┬'re equipped. No matter if you┬'re into Sasquatch or Bonnaroo, Pitchfork or Ozzfest, Lollapalooza or Glastonbury, there is a common denominator these fests all share (other than the love of music, duh): You will get hot. We guarantee nothing more, nothing less. So today we are here to discuss some key items any concert-loving wardrobe should possess. Read on for some summery suggestions.
1. Protect your highlights and skin with a wide-brimmed hat like this Woven Bahamas Hat. The price is nice (it┬'s made out of paper) so if you lose it crowd-surfing, or just wildly dancing, you won┬'t be too bummed out. ($10.80, forever21.com)
Outdoor concerts and tight outfits don┬'t really mesh┬--when you┬'re hot, clingy clothes feel annoying. This lightweight Dries Van Noten dress is as cool as it looks. We know it┬'s super pricey, but everyone┬'s knocking this look off (like Abercrombie!), so keep this shape in mind when shopping. ($832, brownsfashion.com)
As devoted we are to heels, we are more devoted to keeping our backs healthy. The cheerful pastel madras plaid print on these Chucks makes us forget that we feel short. ($47, alloy.com)
In a slight nod to the recent patchwork trend, this multi-print blouse gives you a chic crunch vibe. Plus if you spill your funnel cake on your front, no one will notice. ($64, topshop.com)
You can channel Mischa Barton┬'s ┬"I┬'m with the band┬" ease by snagging a pair of her favorite J & Company Highlander shorts. The faint pinstripe and embroidered pockets are subtle, super details. ($132, shoprumor.com)
While there are certainly less expensive thongs, the crazy soft leather of these K Jaques Picon Sandals is worth not having blisters. ($180, shopzoeonline.com)
