Editor's Picks: Festival Style for the Real World
Coachella has been in full swing, with stylish welcome parties by the pool and live music in the California dessert. This music and arts festival has become the unofficial start to summer fashion, displaying skin-baring looks with a most boho-chic vibe. Pictured: Free People Bella Notte Printed Dress
I recently shared What the Top Fashion Blogger Wore to Coachella 2016, and yes, admitted that it was hard to find enough looks that I loved enough to put into a feature article. Still, some of the looks are a bit much for those who don't spend their days on the beach. I mean, I live in Oklahoma; you are NEVER going to catch me wearing a cropped crochet bra top with cut-off jean shorts...like...ever. However, the breezy boho-chic style is still my favorites when it comes to summer style. Here are some of my top picks that would look great for festival season but can still blend seamlessly into the real world.
Off-the-shoulder tops and gladiator sandals, for example, are two of the biggest trends this season. Pair an off-shoulder blouse with shoulder-skimming boho earings, and pair a flowy summer dress or romper with some strappy gladiators. You can also go with some western ankle boots. And always, always add on a fringed bag...always.
