Styles of Stagecoach

Music aside, festival weekends mean two things: great food & great fashion! Check out some of this weekend’s most #winning looks!

Crop tops: These lil babies never did go out of style! Paired with daisy dukes the look is simple and complete! For added flair, try patterned shorts! We love weathered denim, acid dyes, and large sunflower prints.

Get creative: Rip, cut, & tie a black tee into your own festival-artsy creation!

Creme/white/denim dresses: This covered look is fun and flirty in a Ralph Lauren patriotic way! My favorites are from Free People and Planet Blue.

Overalls & All Over Denim: Normally a definite no-no, I’m opening up to the idea of all over denim. From funky overalls to creatively paired chambrays and vests, denim is everywhere at Stagecoach – so much so that I’m ready to bring head to toe denim into my everyday life (let’s just keep it multi-tonal, please)

Prints: Don’t forget traditional prints! These are ever perfect for a festival like stagecoach – I love plaid, floral, and American-themed designs!

Festival Fashion

Well, it’s that time of year again! The time when you start seeing a sea of floral headbands, fringe on fringe, patriotic paraphernalia, novelty sunglasses, denim cutoffs, bathing suit tops, cowboy boots, and sunburns! It’s festival season! The kick-off was April 11th with the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival, and Stagecoach following on April 25th (extended list of 2014 music festivals here)!

Although the music is the centrum of these festivals, we can’t help but turn our attention to the fashion. Some of my favorite music festival fashionistas are Katy Perry, Vanessa Hudgens, and Kate Bosworth. They all have unique styles, which balance each other out. Katy Perry is very geo/neon centric, Vanessa Hudgens is the epitome of boho chic, and Kate Bosworth sticks to the motto “less is more”. With all of the music festival style inspo, I couldn’t help but put together a style guide photoshoot featuring my beautiful friends and Halfsies very own, Larissa! Check it out!

(Leave us a comment if you are attending any music festivals this year! We would love to feature your style on our blog!)

Party in the USA

This patriotic look will definitely fit well at Stagecoach! All you really need are some boots, tank top, cut-off shorts, and a cowgirl hat. IMG_9303americanflagOn the left, we layered a faded blue printed cropped top over a red and white striped bikini top. We also added a boho flair with the beaded layered necklace and feathers in her hair. On the right, we wrapped a scarf around to make a cute midi top, pairing it with denim shorts, brown boots, and of course, a floral cowgirl hat. IMG_9281 torilars Cheetalicious 

I LOVE cheetah print. It is one of my many obsessions because the print is so versatile, giving any outfit a classy, chic, street, or urban vibe. IMG_9246 meesh cheetahHow awesome is this outfit? From head to toe, this is one of my favorite pairings. The dress and pop of color create a girly look, while the layered necklaces, Obey hat, and cheetah converse, add a street/punk flair. tori cheetahERRMEERRGERRD. Although this printed body con dress stands out on its own, we wanted to add subtle bursts of color and more casual accessories – magenta vans, floral sunnies, and neon necklace & hat – adding a chic street look. larscheetaRawr. The cheetah top is actually a one-piece bathing suit I got at a thrift shop! With this look, we didn’t really have to add much – just a fedora hat, layered necklaces, and a pair of black cut-off shorts. To add, the hat is great to keep that desert sun out of your face. This outfit is simple yet sassy! cheetah1 IMG_9247Accessories

While attending music festivals, it is almost mandatory to wear an overload of accessories, it is often times what makes an outfit. We decided to showcase headbands, arm cuffs, and body jewelry stickers that are far different than the usual floral headdress or fill up half your arm bracelets, which can be an overkill. Here, we used accessories that are subtle, yet still give a boho chic flair! headbandzIMG_9376

Wearing mixed prints instantly gives you a summer and trendy look. They’re statement patterns that add dimension to your outfit, as well as give you a cultured edge.

IMG_9217I love this look because it is so effortless – cropped patterned top with high waisted shorts, and black gladiator sandals – can be the perfect outfit in the hot desert sun! Just remember to put on the spf!

IMG_9214I am obsessed with this outfit because she made that kimono cardigan the night before we did this shoot! Plus, this style of cardigan is very trendy and versatile. It is made of lightweight material, which makes it a great if you want to casually cover up. The graphic and bright patterns are also great for spring!

Crochet

What’s so great about crochet tops is that they are light and can breathe! Perfect for this Cali weather! You can wear a bandeau, thin tank, or bikini top underneath, along with some jewelry and denim shorts, creating a cool, yet cute festival look. LMTIMG_9433

It’s a wrap!
