Fringe, frayed, feathers, and fedoras
Festival season is underway and right now all the stores and boutiques are stocked with 70's inspired, boho chic pieces for that perfect bohemian, gypsy look.
Festival style is all about fringe, frayed denim, fedora hats and feathers among many other styles. I have gathered some of my favorite F word pieces for Festival season from Forever 21 to share with you.
Starting off the F's with fringe. This skirt is one of my favorite pieces from the Forever 21 curated, festival shop they have on their website right now. I had to order one because it is adorable and so versatile for summer. I love how they have it styled with a tied up graphic tank and low gladiator style sandals. Perfect for wearing to a music festival, the beach, summer vacation, BBQ, out to dinner or a girls night, the options are endless. You can add some heels and a cute flowing top then layer with jewelry for a more evening styled look.
A combination of fringe and frayed here with a halter style faux suede, fringe top, paired with frayed bottom, high waisted denim cut off shorts. This screams music festival for sure.
Add this faux leather wrap necklace with feather charms to any of these outfits for the perfect accessory.
Every true music festival or concert goer knows you have to have a great back pack or cross-body bag to carry your necessities from sunscreen, ponchos, blanket, wipes and many other items. This fringe backpack is great and matches with the true 70's boho inspired feel that has become the classic festival look.
Another bag option is this cross-body bucket bag with fringe details. You want to have a cross-body or backpack style bag so you can be hands free and have your bag secure to your body with all your belongs while dancing or throwing your hands up to the music.
If you don't need to carry much and just
want something small for your ID and phone this smaller cross-body, studded bag with tassel detail is perfection. It comes in a few shades if black isn't what you want you can also get brown.
Cut off distressed, frayed bottom shorts are a great festival piece that you can wear all throughout the summer and you can't go wrong wearing shorts with a crop top of tee shirt.
Another choice for cut off frayed shorts in a lighter less distressed look. I personally like to go with a darker denim for festivals or outside concerts where you may be sitting on the ground just in case of rain which can lead to a muddy mess.
These fringe ankle detail sandals are super cute for a festival. I use to wear flip flops since they are rubber but if it does rain you will be flinging mud all over yourself in flip flops. I tend to try to wear something closed toed because I like to make my way closer to the stage and don't like getting my bare toes crushed while making my way through the crowd. I always love to be closer to the stage, the closer you are the louder the music, and the better the view of course plus you are in the midst of the action so you get the amazing rush of being at a rock concert.
Fedoras are a great way to protect your face and hair from the sun as well as providing some shade. These all day concerts can be draining so any shade and sun protection is a must for sure.
I have a real feather tattoo on my arm but if you don't want to commit to the permanent ink they make amazing realistic looking faux tattoos now. This feather tattoo is super cute and goes great with theme of my blog post.

Retail therapy is always the best, I know it takes away any stress I have or any worries I might have on my mind shifting my thoughts to what cute outfits I can wear for the upcoming Rockville music festival here in Florida and for the summer. Don't worry be happy always...
