It’s starting to get hot again and you know what that means–summer is right around the corner. What’s the big deal, you might ask? Other than the fact that summer is the time for beach trips, trips out of the country, and of course, lots and lots of music festivals (Wanderland 2018 is happening this month if you haven’t heard), it’s also the best time to bring out your inner creativity in dressing up. Style and fashion were always seen as methods of self-expression, and this season is the perfect period to revamp that wardrobe. People are freer to be playful, experiment with bright, bold colors, and dress to impress because it’s that time of the year when we take all the photos we can of our vacations, music fest trips, events, and more.
Everyone’s been actively scouring the internet for style inspiration and we’re not too far behind. We totally got your back, so let us give you a hand. Following the launch of Forever 21’s Festival Collection last March 3 and utilizing their newly dropped clothing, we teamed up with the brand to construct three specific looks inspired by the season of sun, sights, and sounds. Check them out and see which outfits suit you the best; maybe you’ll even find the ultimate festival look you’ve been searching for:
1. Tropical Havana
Whether you’re taking a trip to the sunset-glazed shores of La Union, or salsa dancing with a loved one at Havana, Cuba, this beach-inspired trend is best for you. The whole look focuses on mixes of tropical print, novelty fruits, and palm fronds. Wear bright pops of color including canary yellow, orange, and red to achieve a colorful, creative, and fun outfit for your next beach outing or music festival.
Something we loved most about the cult classic ‘90s film Lolita was definitely the youthful style of its titular character, portrayed by Dominique Swain. Think of all the floral dresses at a garden picnic–print on print clothing with denim breaks. Gingham, conversational fruit prints, and classic denim are the main accents to recreate the perfect Lolita girl.
3. ‘90s Street
Last year, it was the ‘80s that was all the rage. Now, it’s time for ‘90s style to make its much-awaited comeback in fashion. The ‘90s street look focuses on a combination of a motocross-inspired trend as well as denim in all kinds of treatment. The collection consists of checks, tracksuits, crop tops and denim pieces. We guess it’s time for us to rewatch all our favorite ‘90s movies for OOTD tips then.
