4 festival-perfect looks by Quigley
If you're not into flower crowns and face glitter.
Festival season has officially started, and to get through long days of scorching sunlight, burning heat and endless social gatherings, it's crucial to have a functional approach to style. To kick-start the new fashion season (you know, the one in between that's not really spring and not really summer), we asked LA-based content creator Quigley to show us her favorite festival looks.
1. FLOWER OF THE FLOCK
We love florals more than ever this spring. Double up and mismatch clashing prints for an eye-catching and festival-perfect look. Although heels aren’t ideal festival footwear, a cute (and conscious!) kitten heel paired with pastel socks will keep your feet clean and elevate any outfit.
QUIGLEY: “I describe my style as art teacher chic. Because I feel art teachers are able to wear things that look like a rainbow threw up on them, and aren’t afraid to pair prints, mix vintage with new things, and just really own their personal style.”
2. POOLSIDE PERFECT
In 2018, festivals aren’t as much about going to crowded concerts and hanging out with friends in a camping area as they used to be. Now it's just as much about what happens off the festival grounds. For all those days and nights of parties, a breezy all-white look is perfect for lounging well into the wee hours.
QUIGLEY: “This look is what my dreams are made of. It’s an updated and more chic festival look that goes perfectly with a Palm Springs event.”
3. IN THE PINK
Co-ords are a festival mainstay. Embrace the best and most practical festival fashion trend in a soft pink corduroy set to blend in and stand out at the same time. An extra perk to this look is that it's easy to scale on or off layers as the day goes.
QUIGLEY: “Finding the balance between fashion and function is the most important part of festival fashion, because so much is about being outside on your feet for long hours. You need a level of comfort while making a statement.”
4. COMFORT COMES FIRST
Let's cut to the chase – at a festival (and in life in general), nothing is more important than feeling comfortable. With a super simple and super cute T-shirt dress, you're all set for any event – as long as you bring an extra layer.
QUIGLEY: “This look is so effortless and comfortable, which means you can spend less time putting your outfit together and more time having fun!”
