Fashion & Accessories

By Patricia Wersinger

Summer is around the corner and along with it, the season of music festivals and art fairs will commence. Nothing evokes the freedom and the spirit of summer like an outdoor concert in an open field filled with the scents of fresh wheat and grass. Since Woodstock, wide peasant skirts, open-back tank tops, cut-off jeans and bandanas have been the staples of festival style. Add a boho-inspired flair to your warm weather dressing with our festival-ready looks.

Natural Life, an online destination for speciality festival-wear, has all the threads and accessories you need. From fun graphic tees to one-of-a-kind accessories, Natural life is a go-to for boho-chic summer looks. The Festival Cross T-Shirt is a must-have with a variety of graphics to express your sense of style. The loose swing fit, bold graphics and soft cotton construction will make it a festival-wear favorite. The Vegan Leather Wristlet is the ideal purse to hold all your essentials and more while exploring the music scene.

Desigual has a collection of vibrant and eclectic print dresses, accessories, bathing suits and boho-luxe footwear that will take you stylishly from festival to festival. The Doncel Espadrilles are the perfect pair of wear anywhere flats with pure personality. The unique print and comfortable design will have you stepping into summer with ease.

At the height of summer and festival season, we reach for our most comfortable and easy, no fuss pieces for those hot sun-drenched days. Opt for a hip & contemporary pair of boxer shorts for an effortless look that can take you from your bed to the local market or the country greens. These relaxed boxers are awfully cute worn with a bikini top, a tank top or a slouchy tee for instant festival style.

For a bit of exotic whimsy, this purple Taj Swarovski Bracelet has the threaded beaded look of the sixties with of-the-moment metallic bling. Add a bit of luxe layering by stacking a few of your favorite bracelets and bangles for a festival-inspired arm party.

Summer festivals offer an opportunity to let go of your weary city persona and explore your more untamed carefree nature. Embrace your inner boho fashionista with these striking styles.
