Festival Cool

The definition of a music festival is as follows; a large gathering of people with insane outfits that reek of effortless cool, who congregate to listen to popular or emerging artists.
Festival fashion is fearless, people bear all or show nothing. The vintage kids come out to play and have mock fashion contests of who can score the best Op Shop item where is be an amazing leather bag, crazy booties, or a rad jacket. If you are not liking the music just look around and soak up the inspiration of individuals who go the extra mile to make sure they stand out on the day. 
Here I am wearing a thrifted black striped singlet with Levis high waisted shorts (customised by myself), Sportsgirl ring, Limedrop ring, Target leopard print bangle, vintage glo mesh bag and WinsorSmith black swede wedges.

The main aim when dressing for festival is comfort but looking different simultaneously. The balance of these two elements is crucial otherwise you'll end up being too comfortable and looking like a frumpy dag or being too fashion conscious whereby you are constantly fiddling with your outfit of layers of necklaces and belts. Note to self fiddling is UNCOOL. Go for lose tops and high waisted distressed denim shorts or a skirt teamed with a rad pair of army boots and of course a vintage bag, hat and sunnies

Have fun dressing like a wild child.
