Full Title: Allure offers ‘9 rules of music-festival dressing’; what are yours for Jazz Fest?
“During the 2014 New Orleans Jazz Fest, we found festival-goers who represented a stunning array of fashion styles, whether it was in a batch of images of beautifully dressed women on the first weekend, men who felt like a boss, or 15 women in particular, or those rocking the tie-dyed, ones with Jazz Age hats, or even those traveling in perfect pairings. (We also have a sneak peek at fest-friendly jewelry for this year.)
Clearly, while it’s easy to simply throw on shorts, a T-shirt and some sandals, there are plenty of people who come to Jazz Fest dressed to impress. That’s the case for music festivals around the nation, which is why Allure magazine recently came up with “9 rules for music-festival dressing,” courtesy of stylist and Coachella Festival frequenter Anita Patrickson — starting with Rule No. 1:
“Maintain your own sense of style. Remember, this isn’t Halloween, which means you shouldn’t approach it as if you were going to a costume party. ‘The best way to plan an outfit for a festival is to take your own personal style and meld it with something bohemian or rock and roll or something with a ’60s feel,’ says Patrickson. ‘It’s just taking your regular style and pushing it to the next level.’“
