With blue skies in the forecast and a killer lineup of music on the schedule, we’ve got the packing list you’ll need if your travel plans include going to Austin for South By Southwest. The SXSW festival is known for its fabulous display of fashion ranging from head-to-toe denim to super digital hipsters. Either way, you’ll need some special pieces to dance the night away, as well as chic daytime staples to sport at the music conferences.
SXSW Packing List
Leather Mini Skirt
The versatility of a leather mini skirt should not be underestimated - it goes with t-shirts and blouses just the same!
A denim romper is a great go-to piece you can wear multiple times - change the accessories to get different looks.
Cool sunglasses are probably the most important thing for a music festival so be sure to pack these in your carry-on.
If you're in a hurry, mascara in a fun color like blue or violet is a great way to freshen up your look before going out.
Stacked Heel Boots
Stacked heel boots go with cut-off shorts, skinny jeans and mini skirts making them a must-have for any festival.
Sequins always rules at any dance party so be sure to pack an embellished t-shirt so you're prepared.
Perforated Leather Jacket
Since the temperatures will fall after dark, be sure to pack a lightweight leather jacket (perforated is the new trend!).
Pair a bold lip with barely-there eye makeup for a fresh look.
A mini purse is the best way to bring everything you need, but without the burden of a big shoulder bag.
A dark denim wash will go with light or dark tops, so pack a few pairs so you always have an easy backup outfit.
Style these white sandals with a bright pedicure and a sundress for a casual daytime look.
