high doc martens What 12 of our stylish friends are wearing
September is right around the corner again and that means apple cider, lots of layering, and the Made in America festival! Just in time for “Back to School”, it’s also the best time to update your wardrobe and perfect your look.

What: Jeffrey Campbell ‘Lita’ Booties and Forever 21 Jacket
Why: I chose these two items because when it comes to fall, I am all about layering and black. A jacket to me is the most important item of clothing to have. It makes the outfit. Every fall I always try to find a new “leather” jacket to purchase. It looks great with jeans, dresses, leggings, skirts, you name it. You really can never go wrong with a leather jacket! My second most important accessory is my chunky Jeffrey Campbell platform boots. Number one: Every girl should own at LEAST one pair of Jeffrey Campbell shoes. Number two: These boots take your fall outfit to a whole new edgy level. He is a 25yr old stylist, event planner, and vintage connoisseur . He is a Mt.

What: Jack Purcell sneakers and Weekender Bag by 611 Lifestyle.
Why: When going to a festival I would wear something stylish yet comfortable. I choose the Jack Purcell sneakers because it is simple and comfortable sneaker yet can still go well with any outfit. Also when out in festivals you may need some type of bag. Not saying that you have to carry the type of bag I have in my hand but something to keep some essentials with you.

What: Sienna Leather Boots from Free People, For Love Lemons Luciana Dress from Planet Blue, and Vintage Alamo Backpack from Free People.
Why: A good pair of boots is essential on my festival must haves list. They give your feet good protection and will help you stay comfortable for hours of dancing.
Simple dresses are easy to throw on and perfect to accessorize with. One with long sleeves will help keep you warm in the fall without having to pack on a bunch of layers.
I have become a big fan of backpacks. Storing all your personal extras on your back is easy to manage and practical when you are walking between stages at a festival.

What: DIY Rockport shoes,
AM Clothing Beater, DIY Denim Vest
Why: I would rock these shoes to the festival because I think they really represent my aesthetic. I wore them for a while and they got so beat up, and rather than retire them, I decided to add the studs to play up how broken in they are. They are just strange enough for me.
I have to be honest, I am recommending the “stars and stripes” beater because its the MADE IN AMERICA Festival. And AM Clothing sent me this beater to promote their brand. They are an all american brand that really appeals to the “american dreamer” and although I am not the US Flag print type (more a union jack guy myself) I do like to support American Brands.
I had decided to wear the vest because I felt that it played down the print of the beater and brought that brit punk edge back into the look. I often try to have a piece that connects me to my past and I always celebrate what makes me unique. and though the festival is all about MADE IN AMERICA, I have to represent my british ancestors who came here for the American Dream.

What: Custom Platform Nike Blazers, Oak Box Loop Dress/Tee, and Adeen Snapback
Why: The Nike Blazers are perfect for festivals because they’re comfortable enough to hold you through the day but don’t lack in impact! They’re sure to grab attention and elevate your entire ensemble.
Lightweight, easy, and versatile, this tee is both a statement and an easy piece to toss on. It’s draping and length keep it intriguing while it’s versatility and loose fit makes it comfortable and hassle free. Who wants to worry about maintenance in their outfit when trying to dance around to their favorite artist?
The baseball cap is sure to grab attention while taking snapbacks to the next level. 3D Text on a hat? Who isn’t bound to turn heads in it? It’s an obsession and a must have. Both are 19yrs old.

What: (Sophia) H Scarf and Mustard Tights from Ebay. (Sarah) Charlotte Russe Cross body bag and GoJane Combat Boots.
Why: (Sophia) I picked this scarf because for one, scarves are a basic fall necessity because they add something different to every outfit. They look good with dresses or a cute shirt and jeans. I like the red in this scarf because it reminds me of the leaves that will soon be here. Walking around a lot outside during the beginning of fall means you’ll get chilly but not too cold. If you’re at a festival you don’t want to lug around a cardigan because you’ll get hot. This scarf is lightweight so it will give you warmth but also you can take it off and tie it around your bag which still looks cute
I love these tights from Nanuinternational so much. Fall is my favorite time to wear pops of color and wearing colored tights with any outfits brightens it up. It’s also a shade of one of the many colored leaves that we will soon be seeing. Paired with a simple dress and a scarf, this my ideal outfit for a fall festival.
(Sarah) A side bag that securely seals is best when in crowds and at festivals to be sure you do not lose anything. I’ve found that a medium sized bag is best to fit a couple things like cash and your phone, especially if you are wearing a dress and are without pockets. I also like the fringe,
it adds a little boho vibe to your look.
