Spring is here in full force and as summer approaches, shorts, tank tops, and sandals all start moving towards the front of our closets. Along with warmer weather and sunnier skies, this transition also brings about music festivals all across the globe. The main festivals around the world that most people flock to are: Coachella, Burning Man, Ultra, Bonnaroo, Tomorrowland, and Amsterdam Open Air Festival. A key component in all of these festivals is the fashion. Over the past few years festival fashion has grown into a staple in most women wardrobes, as not all pieces are covered in sequins and ribbons. Many pieces by themselves are easy to get away with in an everyday outfit or for just going out, while others would make you stand out in the crowd. As the demand for festival fashion has grown, many brands have surfaced, each with its own unique style and flair.
I don’t know about you, but when I layer on my favourite red lipstick (Urban Decay’s Vice Matte in the colour "Bad Blood"), I feel like I can conquer the whole world! And rightly so! Lipstick and make-up represent a form of female empowerment and expression. Bold lipstick is the 21st century equivalent of a power suit, rebellion in a tube against the "demure, feminine" and, let’s face it, narrow beauty standards that are held in such high esteem by our society.
Revamp your wardrobe from these inspiring runway pieces and bring a little high fashion into your everyday style. No occasion too small, or no style too big! Have some fun exploring your stylistic limits.
Last Friday night, hundreds of students flocked to Lower College Lawn in anticipation of a night full of gambling, ice cream, and dancing. The DRAFP Committee threw their annual ball with the theme of The Seven Deadly Sins, which is the largest hall ball of the year. In accordance to the theme many attendees came dressed in different shades of black (wrath), red (lust), and green (envy).
