Festival season is upon us, and the mismatched mavens and sparkle unicorns are starting to rear their trippy heads as the weather gets warmer and the hype gets hotter. As excited as we are about the fashion and the music, we can’t help but long for a simpler time, when music wasn’t about fashion, but about music! Woodstock epitomized the flower child- not just the clothes, but the attitude. As a matter of fact, the clothing was very unimportant (c’mon, we’ve all seen the photos of the bare-bottomed men and women dancing around in the mud). Ok, ok,we’re reminiscing of a time long gone, so let’s get back to the issue at hand- festival fashion. This year, we’re not going to get dressed with our eyes closed in hopes of having the most outrageous outfit. We’re going to pay homage to hippies, and wear some Woodstock-inspired pieces, like the ones you’ll see below!
The first piece we’ve got is a simple tank. It looks great paired with skinny jeans, as we’ve done here, but it would also be great with cut-off shorts. It’s so soft, and hangs just perfectly in the front and the back that it’s just slinky enough without revealing too much. And the navy blue and white floral print inspires peace, love, and happiness in anyone who takes this cami home with her.
Speaking of cut-off shorts, we’ve paired our Retail Therapy Signature 8 high-rise cut off denim shorts with this flower-power crop top. The cap sleeves can be worn on, or as we’re showing here, off the shoulders for a super-cool, laid-back look. Pair the whole look with black tights, booties, and your very own aqua impala, and you’re good to go for the road to Coachella.
The next look is free love at its finest, with dolman sleeves and a short hemline. It can be worn as a dress or a tunic, and paired with sandals or slouchy boots, it’s perfect for listening to music in the sun. And speaking of flowing dresses, this last one epitomizes boho-chic with low cut neckline in the front and back, adjustable straps, and an uneven hem. It’s so airy and free that it even has our personal shopper giggling gleefully in the sun.
