Now that I have had a chance to go to Coachella during Weekend 1 and Weekend 2, I can see why Weekend 1 always sells out so much faster than Weekend 2.
We are in the thick of festival season. In all the trendy stores there are racks and racks of “festival gear” that is a range of clothing and accessories that are fringed, flowy, cropped, and bohemian inspired. I’m the first person to confess that for some of the clothing items I could not imagine wearing it anywhere but at a festival where short shorts and crop tops and I usually will buy festival specific clothing expecting to only wear it one or two times max.
But that seems like such a waste and unsustainable, so I now try my best to buy clothing that is versatile enough to be worn outside of festivals as well. For those of you struggling to justify buying something that you think you’l only wear once, this post is for you! I’ve styled a couple key pieces that are very typical festival items in the hopes of helping others who may be struggling with outfits to wear IRL (in real life).
