WOW: Way Out West Music Festival

The Way Out West music festival in Sweden looks so cool; I wasn’t there this year but I’ve been looking back at the street-style photos from the event and wishing I was!  While music fests here in the US are more casual affairs, recent pics from the Swedish gathering are super high-end and edgy– my dream festival wear!  A big trend that kept popping up in the street pics was graphic black and white combos.

I love how these northern girls are finding fresh ways to wear black and white; it’s so inspiring.  A white denim jacket with black lipstick?  I never would’ve thought of that, but it just works.  I love the idea of a casual, basketball-esque mesh top being dressed up with chunky gold jewelry, too- the mix of influences is genius.  This completely sheer dress that one Swede rocked was beyond cool- I love how she took the bohemian vibe out of sheer pieces and made the style completely her own.  Her varsity jacket was the perfect topper!

What do you think- do we American girls need to step up our festival style?  I think so!  Hopefully next year I can see Way Out West and its concertgoers in person.
