Festival Fashion 101: Choosing the Perfect Color

The easiest way to create a cool effect with your ensemble is to pick a color-palette and pile on whatever you have that fits in. Start with one piece you really want to wear and then add pieces until the look is complete.

This is also a good way to be able to bring your outfit from day to night with ease, still maintaining the same vibe. You can usually keep your top on, add warmer bottoms and layer up with scarves, hats and coats as temperatures drop. Colored fur, whether faux or not, can make all the difference if the wind picks up on a chilly night.

Whether picking one color, a palette, or a full rainbow, remember, more is more!
