What to wear to a music festival ~ the modern BOHO

IMG_2109

 

With globalisation happening at a rapid rate, India has become one of those countries where almost everything happens. We are no longer left behind. We have the best of parties to attend. American series and movies give us an idea about their music fests like tomorrowland and something like Coachella. We as indians are always attracted to what americans do and now we don’t have something as good as tomorrowland, but we have so many music fests happening in India at various parts of the country. Now what to wear to such an event. Well ideally, wearing denim shorts, ganji or a gingham shirt with boots and sunglasses feels the safest option. But going ‘BOHO’takes the outfit to another level! Well I do not have the body to carry shorts, I chose the next comfortable option, leggings. I wanted to go dark and hence chose an all black outfit.

Fringe and boho go hand in hand and I wore chose to wear a fringed kimono. And the lace gave the feminine touch that the outfit craved. A fringe bag would also would also do the trick. The black silver and gold combo neckpiece from topshop is my absolute fav jewellery piece that I own. It is a versatile piece and goes with almost everything.

Don’t even get me started on my super crazy head turning awesome leopard print shoes. This is one of those pieces which I thought I am impulsively buying, but eventually it turned out to be the most sane thing I have ever bought fashionably. I have a crazy incident with these shoes and I couldn’t be more petrified. But that doesn’t make me love them less. A leopard print ankle-length boots screams music fest and is the fiercest thing you can own.

I borrowed(read begged) these super cool sunglasses from my sister to complete my outfit . I wore two rings and bangles. Accessories wise you could do more by wearing midi rings .But since my style is fuss-free I  took the simple route. Braiding a section of my hair seemed so apt. You could add more braids and look super stylish. Voila you’re ready for the fest! This look would also be apt for a road trip with friends.

DIY #2

Guys if you have been reading my blog, you would have seen I attempted to make jewellery. This time I am with a new DIY. I had a neckpiece, which I wore just once. You heard it right just once. I don’t know why did I in the first place buy it. So I thought I should revamp its look. I did a little something to it and now I am loving it and cannot wait to wear it.Gia from ‘Gia says that’ had done the same thing. And I extremely loved it.
If you have some old jewellery on a new one which you don’t like, pick it up.
Take a nail colour. I was dicey between neon pink and a minty colour. I actually wanted to colour it pink, but did not have enough paint, so I rather went for a minty shade. If you see my outfit post, you would notice I love this colour.
PROCESS
 
1) Take the neckpiece and first wipe it with a clean cloth.
2) Choose the nail colour and apply it with the nail paint brush itself. You will definitely need atleast 3 coats. It depends on the colour. Wait for a few minutes before applying the next coat.
3) Do not be impatient like I was and let it dry.
Tada…. The new neckpiece is ready.
The next time I am going to try using fabric acrylic colour instead of the nail paint.
If you liked the DIY, let me know. I shall do more DIYs in future.
Love, Sindhu
