As I’m quickly becoming a master at mixing bold and colorful prints, I’ve channeled my inner Solange for today’s post. The Essence Music Festival is the optimal place to showcase your stylish know-how, so for you gals gearing up to hit NOLA this weekend, today’s style suggestions are for you.
Bailey writes, “Last year you provided some great ideas to help me get ready for all of the fun, eat and festivities that Essence Music Festival has to offer. I will be returning to the Big Easy again this year and would love some updated styling ideas to inspire me. Thanks!!”
Take in the music and excitement of the Big Easy in a wave flared skirt in a bold pattern mixed with pastel and nude tones.
For look #2, Jazz up a muted maxi dress with neutral prints and beaded accents.
Kierra who’s also heading down south for the long weekend writes, “In 2011, there was a post about what to wear to the Essence Music Festival. Since festival wear is so trendy now, can you please do an update on Essence Music Festival looks? I’m a 21 year old Howard University Senior and I don’t want to be jamming to Prince looking like I’m ready for Coachella. Thanks for always keeping fashion at my fingertips!”
Since boho fab isn’t really your forte, accent a black romper with a vibrant floral printed blazer.
