New York City does festival style a little different than our west coast counterparts. With hardly any flower crowns in site, festival dressing on the east coast is more eclectic, with a devil-may-care attitude and lots of great textured hair and amazing toppers. It’s what I love about NYC style –- individual, fearless, bad-ass. These looks will certainly set the standard for the rest of the summer.

Of all the festival necessities glitter seems to reign supreme. However, putting glitter anywhere is notoriously messy and impossible to clean. People hate glitter so much there is actually a websites that allow you to secretly mail your enemies envelopes of glitter and glitter bombs. So how can you take this nightmare and turn it into something awesome? Click the notes. –– Kelly Rowe
It was just a matter of time until the festival trend appeared on the runway. Though we’ve seen it on the street and on every summer holiday this past season, festival hadn’t hit the catwalk hard until this past week. Our favorite take on the trend? The undone braids we saw within multiple designer collections. At Vera Wang, we loved the baby bohemian theme, pulled together with crafted, almost dread-lock like braids coming in from the under layers of models hair. And at Michael Kors, the beauty team paired messy textured braids with the feminine and classic silhouettes. So no matter if you’re rocking the neo-hippie look this season or are more minimalist, a little bit of braiding will tie your look together.
