6 Pieces That'll Get You An Urban Festival Look

It's easy to become enamored by the ethereal exoticness that surrounds the festival trend this summer. However, not all of us have the privilege of running around various deserts in expensive, yet grungy clothing, listening to the best of the "worst" music. Many are stuck between pavement and concrete, lost within a sea of monochrome and patent leather. There is a way to bring the festival feel to even the most urban environments. Instead of the warm, nostalgic colors the desert is a host to, use the cool tones that made the city what it is. 

This black crochet and fringe vest screams Midwestern. The black, however, allows it to be edgy and modern at the same time. Paired with sleek grey jeans or light wash denim shorts, it's possible to take this vest all the way to grunge or maintain its "urban Coachella" vibe. 

These black booties from & Other Stories are the perfect combination of bohemian and modern. The shape and chunky heel take us to Western heights, but the leather and minimalism are everything city chic is about. I recommend matching these up with white destroyed shorts and about a million turquoise bracelets for the optimal festival flare. 

My favorite on this list, take a pair of monochrome, printed loose pants with a high waist. These can be palazzo, culotte, or harem style. The cuts are already so on-trend, but to add another ounce of urban, tuck in a sheer cami. Bonus points allotted if it has a plunging neck or back. Fill the neckline with a statement necklace and finish it off with subtle gladiator sandals, to keep the focus up. 

For this gorgeous dress, all the bohemian comes with the intricate neckline and the urban from the crisp white. To spice it up, add an array of pressed metal rings in various tones. I like to do silver with rose gold and yellow gold with gunmetal gray. On your feet, strappy white sandals make the look fresh. Take a page from the model and add a hat, but instead of brown, a cool toned color: gray, white, or black. 

I'm in love with the neckline on this Shop Hearts off the shoulder top. This wonderfully full and flowing top is the perfect partner for cream/beige leather shorts. The slick material from the shorts will contrast with the sheer top and make it stand out. For an extra kick in that department, add knee length gladiator sandals in dark brown and a big white tote bag. Finally, a long necklace does the final job of making the top the focal point, an instantly recognizable symbol of boho. 

Everything about a crochet bra top is western and bohemian. In order to transition this piece, it's important to pull out all the stops. Beginning with high waisted jeans or shorts in a light denim wash or black, add a long line blazer in a fun, cool toned color like royal blue. On your feet, a pair of classic white Converse tie it all together, but it's not complete without these kind of rad flip up sunnies from Forever 21.
