We are well into Music Festivals season, with one of most classics coming up, Coachella! So here are some ideas and tips you can consider while doing your last minute shopping.
- Comfort is the key when choosing “what to wear” during the long and active festival days.
- Closed shoes are a must, its crucial to wear close shoes, I personally prefer leather boots. If you can, take older boots that are already worn it. Long muddy and grassy walks.
-Breathable fabrics such as cotton and linen will help you stay fresh and cool during the long festival days.
-Try fun and bohemian hair styles such as braids, twists have fun with your hair, be creative, these festivals allow us space to try new things we usually wont on the daily.
-Add a denim! A leather jacket, or knit sweater, to your outfit for the evening, which tend to get very cold during the desert nights. There are locker rooms you could rent and leave your stuff while enjoying the day without having to carry around a bag you constantly have to worry about.
- Bring a scarf or a bandana, once the sun goes down, sand storms are common, there fashionable accessories help you protect your mouth and nose while looking cool.
-A crossover bag, backpack or fanny-pack is the way to go, you really don’t want to be caring anything in your hands, by letting your hands free to dance along the music.
- A backup battery source for your smart phone will definitely be needed during you days at the festivals, as for many of us, our phones are also our main cameras. And more importantly, a festival is the last place you want to run out of battery on your phone in case you loose your friends. Mophie seems to be the hottest choice for extra battery juice for your iPhone, Android users, you’re on your own. And lets not forget about all the battery life needed to keep up with friends and posting your favorite photos of the day.
-Flash tattoos, and henna tattoos are a fun addition to dress your skin and complement your look.
-For your skin, try to exfoliate before exposing your skin to the sun if possible, this will prepare your skin for a beautiful sun tan glow, use and re-apply sunblock during the day.
-Jewelry is big during this festival season, statement pieces like gold, silver and rose gold are the complement to any outfit. I am wearing my colorful handmade bracelets by Charming Bazaar and custom pieces with quartz by SECustom.
