Musicians and fans flock to Texas every October for the annual Austin City Limits festival. Live music, great food and fun-loving people are hallmarks of the city, which means attendees spend every available minute soaking up the good vibes. In order to get the most out of the weekend, we suggest packing a few style essentials so you can focus on finding the next barbecue spot rather than worrying about your outfit. Here, our picks for a rocking good time.
Whether you're dancing, trekking across the festival grounds or biking from your hotel, you need a boot that is equal parts sturdy and stylish. This faux croc version boasts a comfortable heel and will only improve with age.
A flirty dress adds a welcome dose of femininity to utilitarian staples like military jackets and go-anywhere ankle boots. This style even looks great over straight-leg jeans and the colorful print precludes the need for jewelry or colorful makeup.
Keep your essentials close with a cross-body bag. This convertible navy blue style doubles as a laptop case for the airport and can be worn as a clutch when you head out to dinner.
Warm days give way to chillier evenings, so you'll want to keep a light jacket handy. This playful twist on the military classic is unique and won't be bulky if you're tying it around your purse during the day.
Add a little Southwestern flair with a wide-brimmed hat that will protect you from the sun during the day and keep you warm at night. The neutral hue keeps the overall vibe effortless.
Music festivals deserve cool shades, and this Lucite pair will play well with every item in your suitcase.
Teamed with jeans and a military jacket, this dance-friendly tee is equal parts quirky and comfortable.
A flattering high-rise distressed jean in a forgiving black wash will serve you well from the plane to the party. The frayed hem on this pair looks great with ankle boots.
