#AEOSTYLE Challenge: Festival Looks

The arrival of spring means one thing to fashion and music lovers alike — festival season.  You can achieve street-style readiness with American Eagle Outfitters pieces including leather booties, maxi-skirts with an edgy slit, festival shorties and overstated jewelry.

We challenged three fashion bloggers, Erika and Natalie from The Fashionably Broke and Sara from StyleMBA to each create a head-to-toe look that can get you through any weekend festival while staying fashionable and feeling comfortable. Check out each girls look and be sure to visit their blogs to see even more photos.

Meet Sara:
Sara is a DC native. Her blog, StyleMBA, is a DC style blog about the business of fashion and home decor.

Add a pair of leather booties to give any look that festival feel.

What inspired Sara’s look:
When I think of festival style I think COMFORT. A distressed pair of AEO cutoffs, some booties, and a soft flannel top are the perfect uniform for a day of frolicking in the dessert and enjoying your favorite bands day and night.

Get Sara’s look:
Destroyed Midi Short
Cropped Button Down Shirt
Perforated Bucket Backpack

A black maxi skirt is best dressed down with a studded belt and booties and must have a nice, high slit for easy, breezy movement.
