Ask Rachel: Music Festival Buff
Considering the many concerts I have attended in my lifetime—which I am proud to say includes 30 Grateful Dead shows!—I know a thing or two about how to plan your wardrobe for a rockin’ occasion. Denim cut-offs? Check. Sun-shielding hat? Check. Cross-body bag? Check. And then some! Review my carefully devised full list of MF-appropriate ideas below and when the time comes, tweet me a pic of your final look from the festival! xoRZ
1. Denim Shorts: A music festival-must, denim shorts are always an effortlessly cool route to take. Take your pick from Siwy’s Camilla Shorts in black, Maje’s Eglefin Shorts in red or Michael Kors’ Bleached Cut-offs
4. Functional Footwear: As much as it pains me to say this, flat shoes are mandatory for a music festival. Sacrifice height without surrendering your look in Topshop’s Freido Metallic Sandals, or Sam Edelman’s Lou Ankle Boots.
8. Extra Essentials: The final element to your music festival ensemble, don’t forget to pack a digital cam—I love Sony’s Cyber-shot Camera—Dr. T’s Supergoop! Sunscreen Swipes and CLEAN Anti-Bacterial Moisturizer.
