Today kicks off the 2016 Essence Music Festival in New Orleans. If you’re making your way to the NOLA for a little R&B and Soul, get a few outfit ideas on what to wear when you hit Bourbon Street with today’s style inspirations.
Pair a tribal-print sheer blouse with high-waist distressed denim shorts and metallic lace-up gladiator flat sandals.
Complete the look with a wide-brim panama hat, medium leather tote, tortoiseshell frames, and dangling gold bauble earrings.
Create a chic summer look in a pair of multi-color striped culottes offset by an edgy one-shoulder top with side knot detail.
Pull the look together with a nude strappy lace-up sandal, a dusty blue box tote, and chunky cat-eye shades.
Take in the sounds of the New Orleans jazz scene dressed in a midi tank dress and disco ball pom pom sandals.
Let your accessories add the finishing touch with a bold statement fringed necklace, straw tote bag, oversized round sunglasses, and a stylish panama hat.
Lastly, explore the streets of NOLA in a denim-on-denim look offset by a structured denim top and distressed shorts.
Add a pop of color with a bright pink leather box crossbody bag, multi-color studded ankle-wrap sandals, and hexagonal-frame sunglasses.
