To festival veterans, this topic should come as no surprise–there are a few words and phrases that are practically synonymous with “festival style,” and “fringe” is definitely one of them. Fringe items exude that carefree, effortless summer vibe that festival style is all about. An outfit can go from basic to stylin’ with the simple addition of a fringed item, like a bag, top, or in this case, a cute crochet vest. The topper adds sass and style without adding sleeves–the key to keeping your cool at festivals is to eliminate heavy clothing items and unnecessary fabric.
I love how Allie added in small elements to this outfit to make it more festival-ready, such as knotting her tank top. Her fun, statement necklace is a surefire way to add personality and color to her accessory game–love it! She opted for casual, destroyed jeans in a light wash (perfect for summer), which is perfect for evening sets after the sun goes down. On a particularly hot day, you might want to consider packing a pair of denim shorts too. She finished off the look with a pair of “goes-with-everything” booties (a wardrobe essential) that pack a bit of western punch.
Now that you’re well-versed in the world of festival fringe, grab your girlfriends and your festival tickets, and get ready for a style rockin’ festival season!
