Nail Summer’s Laid-Back Chic for Festivals and Beyond

It's true that we go through a Coachella-obsessed phase when the music festival rolls around each spring. We love to see the questionable fashion choices of our favorite celebs who, in spite of impeccable red carpet style, somehow lose the desire to look chic. Instead, they're overtaken by the apparently stronger urge to look like a Woodstock relic. All good fun. 

At any rate, the fashion aftermath of Coachella got our gears turning. Is it possible to be stylish while still rocking out to music in a field? And for that matter, what about all of our other outdoor summer fun? Carnivals, picnics, fundraisers, etc., are all opportunities for the fashion savvy to fall prey to baser style desires or rise to the occasion and remain true to their high aesthetics. We found some pieces we think are ideal for your most casual warm weather outings — outdoor concerts included.
