With Coachella ending this past week, more music festivals are coming up and here’s my top five tips you need to know to dress the part!
1.) Let’s Get High…waisted shorts that is! This trend is a no brainer. It was huge for last year’s music festival season and that remains true for 2014 as well. What’s different? go for more of a ripped/distressed style.
2. When in doubt, crop it out: try a fitted or draped crop top with your high waisted cut offs or maxi skirt! You’ll feel free and but not ridiculously hot!
3.) Florals are always in bloom: It’s spring so naturally floral prints are in full swing! Try a floral pair of palazzo pants or a dainty floral crop top. Florals don’t just end with clothes, flower headbands are always a music festival favorite and go to, so don’t be afraid to mix the two floral trends!
4.) You can’t go wrong with anything Tribal: This means fringe bags, shoes or geometric dresses, jewelry, and accessories like headbands and boho bangles..just go for it!
5.) Show no fear for Shear: When you’re surrounded by thousands of people in an enclosed area it’s going to be hot. Stay cool with shear tops or laces dresses–no need to wear slips or cover up. For the most part during these festivals anything goes, but it’s important to stay cool and be comfortable!

Back in the ’90s, I rocked a pair of yellow overalls that had purple flowers embroidered all over them. It might not have been my proudest moment, but hey, I was only six. Overalls are no longer reserved for just children and farmers. They’ve evolved from baggy and unflattering to sleek and fabulous. As long as you avoid pairing overalls with a flannel shirt à la Old MacDonald, you’re set. Snatch up a stylish pair and accessorize with cool sneakers or heels, eye-catching jewelry, or just a plain white tank.
This past week I was lucky enough to go to New York on a study tour. While there Macy’s 40th Annual Flower Show was in full swing. The theme this year was: The Secret Garden. Macy’s in New York, Philadelphia, Chicago, Minneapolis, and San Fransisco are participating, as well as Washington, D.C with their Cherry Blossom Show. Over all it was an excellent way to start the spring season!
Last week the class I’m in visited New York City for a week long fashion tour. One of the places we visited was designer Jordan Betten’s Lost Art showroom. With mainly exotic animal leathers like alligator, python, and calf skin, and some animal furs, he, his wife and his design assistant Fabiola hand weave and stitch the leather into capes, jackets, pants, belts, and bags. The craftsmanship and aesthetics of his work is absolutely incredible; it’s unlike anything I’ve ever seen before. His pieces are regularly featured in Vogue and Elle and he works with musicians like Lenny Kravitz. Below are a few pictures of the show room and garments! Be sure to follow him on instagram at @lostartbetten to see more of his artwork and designs!
