Music festivals provide some of the best people-watching in the world. Beyond that, they also provide some of the best street style outside of fashion week.

Picking an outfit requires you to balance equal parts originality, trendiness, and practicality. In San Francisco you have the added challenge of dressing in layers to stay comfortable through shifting temperatures. Bonnaroo and Coachella this is not. Sunday started out warm and sunny, but by the time Elton sang his last song it was misty and cold.
This year, we both decided to embrace the vintage 90s trend that has been growing in popularity (even though the phrase “vintage 90s” still makes us cringe and feel old). Who knew we’d be wearing chokers again? Sure glad we kept those!
