This time of year there are many music festivals to attend from Bumbershoot to Burning Man. And although I don't have tickets to any of those, I am a big fan of music and festival fashion. That's why I was particularly interested in this band called The 1975. Most likely, you haven't heard of this English indie rock band, but there are certainly a few songs that you should definitely listen to that will get you in that music festival mood.
The 1975 is a band that loves the "classic good looking guy" look of black, white and leather jackets. Think James Dean! So I thought I'd put together a couple James Dean/The 1975-esque looks (for guys and dolls) from some great pieces from Boohoo.com. The first set is a look for the guys based on the style and musical interest of The 1975. Below that is a similar look that I'd wear. All pieces can be found at Boohoo for $50 or less!
// flat top sunglasses // panel crew shirt // slim chinos // suede trim hi tops // padded biker jacket //
// ribbon fedora // maxi shirt dress // crepe palazzo pants // pointed toe flats // mock croc tassel backpack //
Festival or not, you'll want to get your hands on these classic pieces from the sunglasses to the backpack. It's a mock croc tassel backpack that also comes in red--the it color of the fall for bags. And how cool is that shirt dress?
And the reason this post is titled "Like Music for Chocolate" is because The 1975 has a lot of great songs, but one of my favorites is called Chocolate so I recommend you give it a listen. Robbers is also a sweet treat for your ears!
And if you want to play a fun game, take a minute to take this quiz to find out which festival you are--I'm SXSW. Oh, if you live in the Bay Area, The 1975 will be at The Masonic in San Francisco on Nov. 18--just my luck!
