The 2017 New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival, which took place over a 2-week period from April 28th – May 7th, is known for uniting people of all walks of life who share a common bond – music! With the festival falling in the transition between Spring and Summer, attendees came prepared for less than ideal weather conditions… Although temperatures were hot and humid, festival-goers still managed to look cool sporting 6 different fashion trends we picked up on:
With temperatures reaching the mid to upper 90s, the least amount of layers of clothing the better! Bodysuits were the perfect solution to looking fashionable without breaking a sweat… sort of. There were a wide variety in styles, from lace to crochet to mesh, paired mostly with cute denim cutoffs or trendy overalls.
Not only was rainbow hair a top trend at Jazz Fest, it’s becoming a staple when it comes to festival fashion nowadays. Not one color of the rainbow was absent this past weekend – some opting for a dip-dyed look while others sported full-on color from the root to tip!
Eclectic prints have always made a bold statement at Jazz Fest, despite one’s gender or age. In addition to the highly-popular watermelon print that makes an appearance every year, a wide range of floral prints were spotted on breathable dresses for the ladies.
Sunscreen can be a pain to constantly apply, so what better way to stay shielded from than sun than a festive, custom umbrella?!
When it comes to festival fashion, all-in-one attire is preferred due to its ease! Overalls were a go-to for Jazz Fest, making an appearance in a variety of lengths, colors and patterns.
My favorite trend spotted at Jazz Fest was the eclectic embroidery seen on denim, hats, backpacks, crop-tops, etc. Although wearing jeans in humid temperatures seems less than ideal, embroidered denim was highly popular amongst the more fashion-forward festival-goers!
