I obviously had my eyes on the style scene because I like to
Festival Style: Tips from A Haute Mess that were Stolen from Other People's Outfits
Wear a jumpsuit. Why? Because I like them but look stupid in them, so I want to see more of them on you. Plus, onesies = you don't need to worry about losing any layers when you're stumbling around after a beer too many. PS. Cool lattice details get bonus points.
Bring a scarf. You can use it to sit on (instead of toting around a big blanket) and when it gets chilly post-sundown you can wear it as a wrap. And it looks cool tied to your bag when you're not using it. Fashion and function, people -- a win-win.
Sunglasses are key. Duhhh, it's bright outside. But sunglasses also make you look really cool, almost as much as smoking does. Just kidding, kids -- sunglasses aren't that cool. Just kidding. Insert anti-smoking PSA here.
Boots are your best friend. Festivals generally are dirty, can get muddy and sometimes cold at night. Plus, wearing boots you'll avoid those nasty sandal blisters, will be able to trek back to your campsite through the roughest terrain and easily sneak items on the fun list into the festival grounds... not that you would even think about doing that.
Wear long, loose layers. Maxi-dresses are a magical invention that keep you cool when it's hot out and warmer when it's cool out and they're comfortable. And sometimes it's nice to put the legs away and let the boobs come out to play, I'm just saying.
Oh yeah, cabs are here.
