Festival Dressing Without The Clichés

No fringe, no tassels, but still plenty fun.
|

Ah, summer, that time of the year where the weather is finally dry enough for festivals, markets and the like. Where many across the world will dig their wardrobes in search of fringe, crotchet, gladiator sandals, flower crowns and straw hats, the unofficial uniform of summer music festivals. There’s a certain ironic fun in going with the fringe-wearing flow – we honestly cannot think of a more appropriate place to wear fringe than at festivals, that we’ll admit – but you know what’s even more fun? Turning festival dressing ON ITS HEAD.

Here’s my take on festival dressing: a black wide-brimmed hat in place of a straw one (very effective in blocking out the sun without that stiff prickly feeling that comes with straw hats), a white silk slip dress with a slightly oversized black t-shirt underneath (the dress was made to show a lot of boob, but you know me, I don’t really do boobs) and slip-ons, my go-to shoe of the season. Not a single fringe, tassel or lace-up in sight. (Side note: The dress doesn’t seem to available in stores, but we love these ones from Tibi and Saint Laurent.)

The look’s very uptown-downtown at first, but put some sand dunes behind me, some sunlight and walaa – it’s festival wear! When we talked about ditching the atypical floral sundress for the “non-sundress” sundress, this was what we meant.

So, tell me – what festivals are you attending this summer and what do you plan to wear to them? Show me in the comments below!
