This Is How One Downtown New Yorker Does Festival Season

“Cool, on trend, and a little sexy”

Festival season style doesn't have to be confined to the typical fringe, lace, and [whispers] flower crowns. Your festival looks should be a reflection of you, your authentic style, and evoke the fantasies you want to live. This season, we're turning to the most stylish of fashion influencers for their expertise on how to channel their street style into festival looks. First up is How Do You Wear That's Caitlyn Warakomski.

Warakomski knows that closet space is premium in the city and makes it a point to own versatile pieces that shine on both the festival grounds and the cobbled streets of downtown New York. We recently spent the day with Warakomski, running around Manhattan, as she showed off three outfits she's wearing this spring in New York that will translate seamlessly forher next music weekend getaway. "What I love about [something like a denim two-piece] is that it can go beyond the festival," she says. "If you throw on a pair of white shoes, it makes for the perfect look for running around NYC. Or you can mix and match the skirt and jacket with pieces you already own for an edgier festival vibe."

Need another hassle-free festival look? You can’t go wrong withdenim, comfortable boots, and a favorite graphic tee. This outfit styled with a colorful accessory can be both fun and functional. "[A] fun belt bag, for example, leaves your hands free so you can fully enjoy the festival all day—and night!" she says. Novel advice from a bona fide expert.
