Summertime for many music lovers means outside concerts. Here is a style guide for those of you fashion conscious music lovers planning to head to one of the popular outdoor summer music festivals.
Bonaroo Festival – Casual & Outdoorsy Rules for Rooers in Tennessee
For those of you who are first time rooers, the Bonaroo Festival is a four-day, multi stage camping festival held on a 700 acre farm in Manchester, Tennesse. The Bonaroo Festival runs June 10th through the 13th and features headlining performances by the Dave Matthews Band, Steview Wonder, Jay-Z , John Fogerty and many other rock&roll, jazz and hip-hop performers.
What Should You Wear to the Bonaroo Festival?
My favorite look, for this four-day anything goes music extravaganza, are practical “camper chic” styles. June in Tennessee can be hot and muggy. Rain is always a possibility. The pros at Instyle Magazine suggest pairing summer classics like capris and tanks with L.L. Bean hunting shoes and a practical rain parka. Here are links to some practical clothing choices for stylish females heading to the Bonaroo Festival.
