It's Day Two of Lollapalooza Week on The Mod Little Melanin! The key to today's look is comfort with style! When you're attending a music festival, you're gonna be on your feet most of the day, so they last thing you want to wear is something fitted and uncomfortable!
I started with a dress I had purchased from H&M for only $10.00. The dress was apart of their Conscious Spring Collection and I had been eyeing it for weeks. Originally, it had been priced for $34.99, but is currently marked down to $7.00, if you can still locate it in stores. What I love most about this dress is the vibrant, geometric print throughout the look. It adds character to the look and allows the dress to become a look that not everyone would feel comfortable wearing (I always try to buy clothes like this). This dress features a high split on both sides of the dress and has a V-neck neckline. I felt comfortable enough wearing the dress without anything underneath. However, if you don't feel the same I recommend adding a pair of black biker leggings underneath. You can find them at Forever 21 for about $3.00.
When styling this outfit, I wanted to include boho/hippie vibes to the look because the dress reminded me of an outfit that would have been worn to Woodstock in the '60s. For this reason, I added a large, faux feather necklace to the dress. I wanted the necklace to compliment the boho look rather than take away from the look. Don't try to be trendy with this dress and avoid adding this season's necklace, the choker. I added large, chunky hoop earrings that were also popular during the 1960s, to not take away from the look. Remember the key to music festival looks is comfort, therefore, I added a pair of lace up, gladiator sandals I purchased from a shoe store in Birmingham, AL. I have seen similar shoes from Wetseal.com. A cute summer bootie shoe would also look great with this dress, however, when you live where the heat index is 107, boots are not your summertime calling.
The key to this look was my hair. Straight hair would have been too drab for this look. My roller set hairstyle, refer to my Instagram for styling details, best suits this look because of the messiness of the style. It also provides the look with character. 😉 This look would also be perfect for Afropunk Fest. If you don't know what that is, you'll find out in August on The Mod Little Melanin!
