Festival Fashion 2013: California Hippie Chic

Spring in California means one thing for concert lovers – Music festival season!

From Burning Man to Coachella there are plenty of events, concerts, and fun, festive gatherings to get you outside and enjoying the Spring weather.

Coachella

While my day job keeps me in San Francisco and away from the festivities I always look forward to the music festival posts from my favorite bloggers who make the trip – I especially love the candid & group shots since they make you feel like you’re there! 🙂

So let’s get in the mood for this season’s festivals by checking out some of the fashion from years past and seeing how it can be applied to our current wardrobes. One of the best parts about vintage & retro inspired styles is that they’re so long-standing you can wear the same pieces season after season by mixing up accessories & injecting some on-trend styling.

MaxiSkirtLateAfternoon

{This maxi skirt look is one of my favorites from Liz over at Late Afternoon – She looks great with a crown of braids, midriff baring music tee, and a printed, flowy maxi skirt.}

Make dessert magic with a maxi length skirt or dress – From bold colors to breezy sheer fabrics to fun, eye-catching prints, there’s the perfect maxi out there for everyone.

Shopping Tip – If you’re on the petite side be sure to get your dress hemmed or shop a brand that carries petite sizes to avoid destroying the hem when it drags on the ground.

{Want to try out the midriff baring trend? Get inspired by Peace Love Shea’s simple cutoff tee here.}

There are midriff baring tops everywhere for Spring with styles running the gamut from retro bathing suit inspired silhouettes to simple DIY cut-offs that you could make from your favorite comfy old shirt in a few minutes.

Shopping Tip – If you’re curvy try a retro halter style, while ladies with more boyish figures could give the style worn by Peace Love Shea above a try. The key is to show off what you’ve got! 🙂

{If you’re a fan of vintage rock tees now’s the time to break them out!}

Is there anything more perfectly hippie-inspired than fringe? From over-the-shoulder bags draped with thick fringe that evoke images of the Old West to cut-off shirts and denim shorts that are beach or music festival ready.

Shopping Tip: If your personal style is more conservative or classic but you want to try out this trend then aim for a fun accessories. From bags, to necklaces, to moccasins, there’s something that will suit everyone’s style!

Looks of the Week

Happy Monday! Let’s get straight to the good stuff today. Enjoy!

This is a great example of a relaxed, feminine take on menswear. The loose, wide-leg trousers in a fun fabric and beautiful deep color are the central piece, paired with a basic white blouse, and great accessories. The purse is a really pretty, unique piece and the platform sandals with the silver heel are to die for. Outstanding!

Source

This is the perfect casual cropped pants look. Relaxed and fun, but really well put together and accessorized to perfection with the fierce heels and bright bag. J'adore!

Source

Gorgeous accessories and styling here, I love the belted coat with the dramatic faux fur collar, the gloves, and the platform booties are absolutely divine. Such a great, well put together look!

Source

This is just because I love you guys... I kid, I kid. He actually looks great. I love interesting suits - fun ties, patterned fabrics, unusual colors. The average man doesn't seem to take a lot of risks when it comes to fashion, so I especially love to see a little risk on the red carpet!

Source

Liz from Late Afternoon is never one to shy away from color, but I was particularly impressed with this Spring look. The cream sweater is the perfect topper for the sweet floral shorts and I love that the scarf is full of bright, warm colors that aren't matchy matchy. It's a fun, chic look that we can all emulate!

Source

Olivia strikes again! If you're set on wearing jeans but want to dress them up a bit, this is a great way to do it. The shimmery blazer is fun but understated and the brightly colored, contrasting pumps are a great finishing touch.

Source

Great color combination! I love that she chose to highlight the blue in her shoe choice rather than the more obvious green. A great summer nights look!

Source

I absolutely love this look. The focal point is a gorgeous, chic double-breasted coat in an interesting, uncommon shade. It shows you how easily outerwear or a great bag can update a basic look.

Source

If you want the ultimate in casual style do it like Rosie, Cropped jeans, basic T, booties. Done!

Source

What I love about this look is the styling, which is absolutely top-notch. The sunglasses, the bag, the broach, the jewelry... And that strong-shouldered blazer is parfait! J'adore!

Source

While this look seems pretty basic, it's really anything but. It's got a cute purple plaid shirt, mixing of black & navy, layers galore, and even knee-high socks with ballet flats. It's cute and fun and perfect for these Spring showers we've been having!

Source

For a music awards show red carpet you always expect the unexpected - but I loved this chic little look. The leather shorts w/ blazer combo is perfect, and that gorgeous gold layered necklace and bright cobalt blue shoes are the perfect standout accessories.

Source

And since we were all bombarded with photos and updates from Coachella this weekend I wanted to do a little round-up of some of the best looks that I saw from the festival. The Coachella corner if you will:

Late Afternoon was one of the fashion bloggers I was most looking forward to hearing from during the festival and she did not disappoint. And as if the tied shirt, flannel overshirt, and cropped leather jacket combo wasn't enough, she added an adorable maxi skirt and the cutest braids ever. J'adore!

Source

Each of these girls has a pretty distinct look - Lily's a little rock n' roll in leather, Karlie's the laid back hippie in her patterned poncho, and Cara's got the hipster style covered with ray bans and a sideways hat.

Source

Hippie view!!!

I love Kasia's low-belted tank dress and fringed booties. Casual and relaxed but totally on-trend for the events.

Source

I love the different styles and pieces in this group shot. From flowy maxi skirts to wide leg pants to retro shorts to floral headpieces to kimonos. Amazing!

Source

Sincerely Jules stacked things up with woven bracelets, spikes, and even some bling. Great combo!

Source

True flower-child stylin'! I love all the bracelets and the fringed suit, a really great pairing.

Source

Diane looking adorable @ the Lacoste L!ve pool party. I like the colorblocking of the dress and her cute booties.

Source

Fringe, cut-off shorts, jean jackets, facepaints - These models are ready for the festivities!

Source

This was one of my favorite looks. I like the simplicity of the basics paired with the high-octane extras. That scarf is killer!
