It’s festival season once again, a favorite time of year for fashionistas to combine their love of music and fashion. Music festivals are well known to be an excuse to show off your style. Months of planning go into the kind of head-to-toe festival looks you wouldn’t necessarily wear in your everyday life. This year, try mixing in pieces that are more practical yet still trendy—you’ll stand out in the crowd with your updated take on festival style.
Don’t be a Coachella cliché this year; change up your look by following these simple dos and don’ts in festival trends.
Don’t: Flower Crowns
I know, I know… Flower crowns are the epitome of music festival fashion. I myself still love a good flower crown when the moment presents itself—I wore one to my baby shower just this past weekend! But it’s time to bid adieu to the ubiquitous music festival flower crown.
Do: A Hat and SPF.
I don’t mean to sound like your mother (though if you missed it above, I am expecting after all!), but your skin will thank you for wearing a hat and some SPF during a weekend in the desert. Try an athletic-inspired or a wide-brimmed hat to top your festival ensemble.
Don’t: Heeled Anything
Heeled ankle booties are a staple of mine and many others no matter the occasion. But let’s be honest: heeled boots—or heels of any kind—are not kind to your feet during those long festival days.
Do: Sneakers and Flats
Sneakers have been trending, and our feet are taking notice and thanking us! Mix up your usual boho look and pair your ensemble with some sneakers or lace-up flats to stay trendy and practical.
Don’t: Leather, Suede, and Fur
Y’all… Music festivals are held in the desert. It’s hot! Leave those heavy layers at home and enjoy yourself instead of flirting with heatstroke. Keep these fabrics to accessories like bags.
Do: Breezy Fabrics
Sheer is in, and it’s perfect for staying cool during a weekend in the desert! Layer a lightweight dress or a sheer top over some shorts and a bralette and you’re ready!
It was all over the Spring 2017 runway, and fashion ‘it’ girls have never shied away from daring trends—now we’re seeing bra tops sold by mainstream retailers. Are bra tops the new crop tops? Or has the lingerie trend gone a bit too far, à la Sue Ellen from Seinfeld (did I just date myself with that reference)?
In my opinion, a bra top can add a delicate femininity to your outfit or some attitude, depending on the type and how you wear it. Whatever your thoughts on the trend, I’ll bet that the looks below will inspire you to try adding a bra top to your outfit. Follow these three ways to pull off the bra top trend in your everyday style.
Under a Sheer Top
Layer a lacy bra top under your sheer top or tunic to show off the details in your top and add a new dimension to your look.
Under Low Cut… Anything
Is your top or dress just a bit too low cut? Ditch those annoying camis and trade it for a cute, lacy bra top for a bit of sass.
Over The Top
Adding a bra top layer over your tee, blouse, or button-up will breathe new life into those well-worn tops in your closet.

Florals will never be out—not for spring or any other season. Floral is a classic print that flatters women and men, young and old. With that said, sometimes you need some more variety in your wardrobe for some freshness and inspiration. I’ve rounded up some of my favorite spring prints to try adding to your wardrobe this season.
Gingham is traditionally a summer staple, but it can easily be incorporated into your wardrobe earlier in the year. There are so many different ways to wear this eye-catching print!
Horizontal or vertical, colorful or muted—stripes are a classic and variable print that can be worn for any style and occasion.
The spring trend that screams fun and boldness? Embroidery. Embroidery can transform the most ordinary item into a statement piece.
Feminine and flirty, polka dots in varying scales are back in a big way this spring.
What are your favorite spring prints?
With Daylight Saving, rising temperatures, and the sun shining just a bit brighter each day, it’s clear that spring has arrived. That means it’s time to shed those layers and break out your warm weather clothes! Some trends I’m looking forward to seeing are statement sleeves, short heels and flats, full midi skirts, and lots and lots of vibrant colors. To help inspire your style this new season, I’ve rounded up some of my favorite blogger looks I’ve seen this week that epitomize spring style.
Grasie’s top and skirt set just screams “Spring is here!” I am in love with how the coral in the floral print matches her mini bag and lip color.
Andy’s outfit may be from last spring, but it is just as trendy and current today. Her crisp off-the-shoulder blouse with tie detail is the perfect statement to add to your wardrobe and remix throughout the season.
Krystal takes on a ladylike spring look in her midi skirt and slingbacks, two of the season’s biggest trends.
Talisa is casual-chic in her midi skirt and sneakers—two easy-to-wear pieces that may just become your spring uniform!
I am completely envious of Lisa’s wide leg, ruffled ankle pants. They are perfect for spring and can be remixed endlessly into summer!
A spring closet essential: an easy and effortless dress like Natalie‘s that you can throw on for all those spring brunches with your girlfriends!
Blair‘s spring dress is another that can easily be worn multiple ways; belt it, wear it as a vest, with heels or flats, or over jeans.
