It’s that time again! The 2017 Essence Music Festival is well underway. For those of you headed to the Big Easy for a little music, culture, and all things NOLA, tap into a  few outfit ideas with today’s style inspirations.

Opt for an olive ruched-side midi dress styled with a pair of printed platform straw sandals.

Spice things up with a tassel statement necklace, cat-eye sunglasses, a studded olive clutch, and stacked bangle bracelets.

Give your look a tropical feel with a palm leaf print playsuit offset by a pair of pearl-embellished t-strap sandals.

Complete the look with a blush pink envelope clutch, gold chain link hoop earrings, and oversized designer frames.

Dress up a black jumpsuit with a mini ark bag and lace up sandals.

Add stylish details with a pair of oversized square-frame flip up sunglasses and gold ellipse earrings.

Rock a sheer floral duster with a white tank top and distressed denim shorts.

Mix it up with a few black accents, including a pair of gladiator sandals, a monogram shoulder bag, tiered tassel earrings, and cat-eye sunglasses. For the final touch, add a popping pink lip.

Lastly, rework a casual denim look in a strappy white bodysuit paired with a long frayed denim skirt.

Chic up the look with a pair of black embellished sandals, a printed envelope clutch, draped chain earrings, and beaded bangles.

And that’s it! Which look would you wear while exploring the streets of New Orleans and vibing to a little R&B and Soul? Wishing everyone a fantastic weekend!
