The summer is made for street festivals - I love being able to slow down for a moment perusing the different sights, scents and sounds that they all offer. Many of my summer weekends are spent walking through a festival either on purpose or accidentally (many of the fairs go unpublicized). I also love checking out the individual styles that I always come across from the multitude of people that attend the festival too. When I got this question I was more than happy to answer, take a look !
"I've been asked to attend a street festival as a date - I don't know if I'm reading too much into it but I don't know what to wear. Any suggestions? "
Fair question Allison, the fact that it's a date has put you in a sort of "mode" that you are questioning what you might normally wear. I think all of us have done that. My simple advice to you - keep it simple. Street Fairs have alot of well, everything and you won't know what you two will get into. Be comfortable, you don't want to wear anything that you will be constantly be pulling or tugging on throughout the day. In the same vein make sure your clothes still flatter your figure. You could always do the "old faithful" (tshirt and shorts) but like you said it's a date and you want to step it up a bit, right? An absolute must is comfortable shoes - street festivals are lots of fun, but you won't notice if you're concentrating on your aching feet. Hopefully the couple of pieces below will spark some ideas for your street fair date :)
