The end of September in Downtown Tempe means it’s time for the Summer Ends Music Festival. If you're lucky enough to have tickets for all 4 days AND you're a female, your first thought is the universal question, "What do I wear?" A few guys may have this question too. We hit the streets for some advice from some of our local retailers to give you some great festival fashions to rock at #SummerEndsAZ.
Thursday is easy – it’s the shortest day of the festival – Cold War Kids, Brandon Flowers and Hozier are on deck on just one stage. Most likely you're coming from work or class, so a pair of jeans or shorts with a cute top will work. Friday is a no-brainer too – music starts after 5p and runs until midnight. Hello Jimmy Eat World! The fashion-forward ladies at Pitaya swear that a knot-front dress is perfect for any Friday night, outdoor concert look. Plus, it will be a staple in your wardrobe this fall – bonus! Pair it with black accessories for an effortless and edgy look.
Saturday and Sunday present more of a challenge – the days are longer, starting at 1p and rocking until the midnight hour, and you'll be hopping in between stages. From Iration’s alternative/reggae to Big Sean, the rhythm and beats should have you grooving, so you want to be comfortable and look great of course! For Saturday, the ultra hip crew at Urban Outfitters put this list of essentials together:
Don't worry guys...they didn't leave you out:
Get ready to dance on Sunday -- programming kicks off at 3p with the sounds of Kaytranada and ends with none other than Mr.West himself. This is your "best outfit day" for sure! One stop at Here on The Corner will more than prepare you for this epic festival conclusion. With a passion for locally-designed fashion and products with a cause, here's what the trendy crew picked out:
So...what will you wear to #SummerEndsAZ? No matter what your usual style is, there's just something about summer music festivals that make you want to dress the part. Take this advise from the fashion experts in #DowntownTempe and you'll be set in no time -- rock on!
