Temps are expected to be a little on the warm side, in the upper 80s by day and low 70’s by night. And, as always, there’s a possibility of mud come Saturday. So, if you’re planning to boogie all day and into the night, there are several elements to consider when it comes to Festival Fashion.
I’m no expert when it comes to festival fashion, so I asked veteran and stylist extraordinaire, Augusta Campbell, to weigh-in and give us some high-style inspiration. Here are her outfit plans for the weekend:
