Take a little fashion inspiration from Spring’s most popular music festivals across the U.S. With Ultra Music Festival wrapping last weekend in Miami and Coachella in Indio, California gearing up to start, we’ll show you some of our favorite “Boho” styled outfits to take away with you. Release your inner “hippie” and get set to start shopping the “Boho” trend.
TIE DYE MAXI SKIRT
Tie dye gets a softer, more sophisticated look this Season. For Spring, look for a muted tie dye pattern not just on shirts, but also maxi dresses, skirts, handbags, and scarves. Designers from Miu Miu to Rodarte are taking the tie dye to a new level with neutral pastels and soft browns. We love Hale Bob’s neutral tie dye silk maxi skirt or go for a pop of color with Hale Bob’s selection of tie dye jersey maxi skirts in an array of colors. Pair your skirt with a floppy hat from Topshop and trendy gladiator sandals from Steve Madden or go with a cowboy styled hat from Free People and American Rag boots. For the beach, wear your tie dye maxi skirt with flat sandals from Nine West and Karen Walker rounded sunglasses for perfect Spring fun.
PRINTED MAXI DRESS
A simple yet chic “Boho” option is the printed maxi dress, easy to wear and comfortable yet stylish for all day fun. No need to pack an extra outfit with you. The printed maxi dress can carry you through all your activities- morning, afternoon, and evening. For daytime, pair your dress with sandals, wedges, or booties from Shopbop for a casual, comfy look. Segue into the evening hours with Michael Kors’ caged strappy heels and a matching Rebecca Minkoff leather clutch and you are ready to dance the night away. Check out the great selection of exotic printed maxi dresses from Hale Bob, one to suit your every mood.
WIDE LEG PANTS
We are loving the wide leg pant, trending for Spring 2015. With just the right accessories, you can easily dress up or dress down these versatile pants. For daytime activities like a music concert, shopping, or the beach, pair your wide leg pants with a cropped lace top or flowy tunic from the Johnny Was Collection. For the evening hours, top with an Alice + Olivia creamy sheer chiffon blouse or loose sequined silver top from Revolve. For a perfect comfort and fit, try AC Collection’s wide leg pants in black. Be sure to add this trending pant style to your wardrobe collection this Season.
WIDE LEG SILK PANTS
Another “wide leg” fashion staple spotted at music festivals across the country is the silk pants. Capture the same look as celebrities like Emma Roberts and Sophia Bush with your own pants outfit. We love Hale Bob’s blue wide leg silk pants paired with a simple Hale Bob ivory tank and flat sandals. For the evening hour, top your wide leg silk pants with Hale Bob’s flowy ivory silk top and wedge sandals from Schutz Dominick. Wide leg silk pants are a perfect option for daytime or nighttime, warm or cold, casual or dressy occasions.
WIDE LEG LIGHT DENIM
A third “wide leg” option trending this Season is the light denim jean. With a nod to the 70’s, designers like Marques Almeida are bringing back the vintage flare jean. Get groovy with Hudson’s “Ferris” flare jean in light wash paired with Hale Bob’s pink drop waist tunic and Naya platform sandals, accessorized with Christian Dior 70’s sunglasses and a iconic straw floppy hat from Bloomingdale’s to complete your vintage look.
DARK WASH BOOTCUT JEANS
If you are a little timid on going for a complete 70’s look, get in on the trend with the bootcut jean, a pant with slightly less flare. The bootcut jean flatters any figure with a fitted waistline and leg, opening into a slight flare at the cuff. Try 7 for All Mankind’s dark wash bootcut jean paired with a cute striped top from Rag and Bone and comfy leather ballerina flats from TOMS. Or go a little more 70’s-style with Hale Bob’s ivory silk cotton embroidered tunic and flat sandals.
LACE CROCHET MAXI DRESS
Add a little feminine touch to your “music festival” wear with lace crochet. This Spring look for lace crochet vests, skirts, tops, and our favorite, maxi dresses. We love Hale Bob’s ivory lace crochet maxi dress in cool cotton for a fresh breezy feel. Wear with simple flat sandals or accessorize in style with Betsey Johnson “Queen Bee” beads and Robert Lee Morris bangles, adding a light lace sweater from Michael Kors for chiller evenings.
As the weather warms, cropped shorts should be a wardrobe staple for your Spring and Summer “music festival” style. We love Citizen’s of Humanity’s “cheeky” ivory cut off shorts paired with a Free People cut out tee, comfy sneakers, and a flower headband for true “hippy” flavor. Do not be afraid of carrying your cut off shorts into the evening hours by styling with a chic flower print short sleeved sweater from Farfetch, strappy heels, and a sequined clutch from Leo. Celebrities like Miranda Kerr and Taylor Swift have been spotted recently sporting cut off shorts with heels, so why not give it a try this Season.
Try something different this Season with unique textured shorts in a variety of patterns and styles. Look for shorts patterned with geometric shapes, floral, lace, and animal print. As shown on the runway for Nicole Miller at L.A.’s Fashion Week, patterned shorts are definitely a trend that’s here to stay. We love the great selection of textured shorts from Liberty Garden paired with ABS crop top and lace shawl from Wildfox Couture for the full “Boho” effect, or top with a loose tunic from Anthropologie for a cool Spring feel. Forgo the regular denim shorts, and put some pattern in your style this year.
Whether you are attending any of this Spring’s music festivals or just enjoying them from the comfort of your home, free up your life this Season and add a little “Boho” to your style. Shop for wide leg pants or a flowy tunic or patterned shorts to add to your existing wardrobe. Or simply add a few bangles, long necklaces, or a flower hand band for a simple yet trendy “Boho” effect. Adapt the music festival motto this Spring and “live fun, fresh, and free.”
