Two Girls at the Parisian Ball, Governor’s Island

This summer has presented some real sartorial challenges when it comes to outdoor events in NYC. This Saturday’s new Parisian Ball on Governor’s Island, a big Bastille Day bash complete with vintage carnival rides, started out drizzly but hot for a long event that wouldn’t end til midnight. These two guests rose to the challenge with outdoor festival wear that’s practical but pretty – overalls paired with nautical stripes and a blue and red head wreath on the left and a blue and white print top with red and white earrings on the right.

Two Summer 2012 Trends: Denim Shorts and Head Wreaths

These two fashionable friends were wearing a couple of things that keep popping up everywhere for summer 2012: denim shorts, on the left, and a head wreath, on the right. Jean shorts aren’t just blue anymore but come in a wide array of colors, like these in burgundy, in neon colors, dip-dyed or even tie-dyed. And head wreaths are worth noting not just because of the festival circuit but for their appearance on fashion influencers like the Man Repeller and Giovanna Battaglia(more…)

Bonnaroo Street Chic: White Tunic and Fanny Pack

Cute bikini cover-ups were a key part of getting dressed every day at Bonnaroo. This white cotton tunic with a lace edge is breezy and pretty on one of many guests who opted for a fanny pack instead of a handbag. The print socks and Keds add a little bit of quirk.

Bralet and Short Shorts, Bonnaroo

To beat the heat on the steamy first day of Bonnaroo, many guests wore not much at all. Better to opt for a cute bralet and short shorts like these, however, than just a bikini. It’s a way to keep cool but stay dressed.

Striped Tee and Denim Shorts, the Great Googa Mooga

Denim shorts were a popular sartorial choice at last weekend’s Great Googa Mooga festival in Prospect Park. The white flip flops and white wayfarers play off the graphic black and white stripes of her tee. Another important aspect of festival fashion? If you’re going to show those toes, make sure you have a rockin’ pedicure, like hers in electric blue.

Shorts and Frye Boots, the Great Googa Mooga

Here’s another cool but practical look for outdoor concerts: denim shorts and mid-calf boots. There is no one right style of denim shorts this season. This slightly flared pair looks great with flat, rugged Frye boots, made for tromping around outside no matter what the weather. Also love how she styles it with a striped long sleeve tee and Ray Ban aviators – casual but cute.

Shredded Denim Shorts, the Great Googa Mooga

New Yorkers broke out their best festival wear for this weekend’s Great Googa Mooga food and music extravaganza in Brooklyn’s Prospect Park. One guest wore totally shredded and destroyed denim shorts, mixing them with a black top and black and white shades. The outfit is not just cool but practical: a small cross body bag, boots, bedspread and wide brimmed hat make it easy to either dance or sit down and picnic.
