Festival Fashion 101

Spring is here and so is festival season!

Whether your plans include dancing in the sun or swaying in the shade, scroll down to see how you can beat the summer heat without sacrificing an ounce of style. From Coachella to Boots and Hearts and everything in between, get festival ready with these fashion and beauty must-haves from GUESS and Consonant Skincare.

Kick-start your festival wardrobe with a laid back look that is equal parts practical and carefree. Throw on a classic pair of denim shorts, floral embellished gingham crop top and red gladiator sandals for a relaxed look perfect for frolicking in the sun. Keep it simple with a transparent vinyl backpack, stackable chokers, tassel earrings and on-trend cat-eye shades – the glossy accents add fun and flare to this classic festival look. Last but not least, protect your summer glow with Consonant Skincare’s Perfect Sunscreen for a 100% natural and non-greasy look.

The perfect look to take you from the pre-party to the headlining act – pair your sultry maxi with an off-the-shoulder top and gold wedges for added height. Top off your look with a slick set of shades, circle cross body bag and wide brim hat to protect yourself from the harsh UV rays!

Accessorize with gold dainty jewelry that is easy to pack and perfect for layering. Post-festival, remove your makeup with Consonant Skincare’s Come Clean 100% Natural Bamboo Cleansing Cloths.
