How to: Festival Fever

How to: Festival Fever

Read more...

Coachella might be over, but worldwide festival fever has officially begun. I bet a million girls by now have frantically cut and ripped their jeans, rummaged through vintage stores to find the perfect fringed Kimono and applied tons of bumble & bumble surf spray to shine on muddy, plastic-beer-cup covered ground, instead of a red carpet.

I love a good hippie vibe reinventing itself every year, after all the only place to rather mess up your outfit (and definitely ruin your shoes) is a music festival. Psychedelic colors and flowery hair bands still work, as does anything with feathers applied, a hem withdrawn, and an instagram retro filter to take the right selfie - very preferable at sunset.

Then again: since Kate Moss legendary stepped out at Glastonbury festival in Hunter Boots, sporting the “I just had sex backstage”-look, we all know that the only fashion item needed to hone any festival look is a rock star husband. I’m working on it.

When attending a festival - despite other opinions - it's clearly not the music and bands playing that require primary focus: it's definitely the decision which heels you'll bring. I've made the mistake of organising a sophisticated schedule of which band to see when and especially running there early to conquer the wave breaker many many times. But it’s the shoes really, which will carry you through mud, empty cans of beer and an over-enthusiastic crowd jostling.

Take into consideration that your heel of choice also needs to be Dixie-toilet proof, dripping mayonnaise (from your second portion of greasy fries) resistant and nonetheless attention screamers for winning over security sympathy. Because of course you'll try to sneak backstage without that all access pass, not once but at least three times. And who cares that you'll have to wear orthopedic devices for weeks afterwards if you have the chance to wake up (in heels still) next to some hot musician piece of ass? High Heels to Lowlands I say.

This weekend music will once again turn the desert outside LA into one big stage: the Coachella Festival. And as soon as the first microphone will be switched on, millions of pictures will flood the net documenting the styling and outfits 1000 celebs put on to celebrate... uhm: probably themselves. I can only wonder why and when festivals - of all places -became the IT-source to show off designer ensembles that stylists put together weeks in advance so the girls are sure to look effortlessly cool (but utterly photogenic obviously).

Where are the days when you (once in a while at least) just grabbed an one of your boyfriend's old tees and those hideous boots (which you’d dig out every festival season and wouldn’t wear anywhere else) to swing your bootie to the beat instead of a clicking camera? Where are the days that you'd turn with the volume in a hot sweaty mess covered in beer instead of Chanel? And when did it become so popular to look for a photographer near you rather than your favorite band? *sigh*

Of course am completely unaffected by the hype: that’s why it only took me an hour to assemble today's outfit, and forever to train the perfect festival pose (yeah: you can look that one up!). So where are all the cameras: am totally festival fever ready. Peace!
