With buzz about Coachella fashion taking over all major fashion publications this week, it’s time to start thinking about your own concert season wardrobe. The first concert on the Megaticket at Blossom Music Center is only six weeks away. What’s going to separate your outfit from the rest of the country-lovin’ tailgaters?
The fashion scene at Blossom is typically absent. Fields are filled with girls all sporting Daisy Dukes, cheap cowboy boots, plaid shirts and camouflage hats that lead to the perfect opportunity to step above the rest.
The biggest downfall with the above outfit is that it doesn’t fit the body type of 99 percent of the people who try to pull it off. Fashion is more about knowing how to dress your body than how to pick out anything that looks good on a hanger. Keep this in mind before reaching for the Blossom “uniform.” Instead, channel “southern charm” instead of “hillbilly chic” when preparing to somehow catch Tim McGraw’s eyes all the way up on the lawn. We can dream, right?
Keep it casual but with an obvious hint of individuality. While cutoffs are a staple, go for high waisted or tie dye or the obvious ‘Merica choice, with a tucked-in tank and woven fedora. A sleeveless sundress can be the perfect choice for those feeling a little more Taylor Swift circa 2007. Keep your purse small. A cross-body will keep your hands free and your bag off the ground while you dance and sing along. An oversized knit pullover can give you a beach-y feel when the night gets chilly. And while flip-flops are tempting, remember that Blossom is a mess of dirt and grass, and those things will not last when it turns to mud.
