A ton of folks are asking what to wear for the up-coming
Afro-Punk Festival this weekend!
As as avid participant, it’s the biggest event for the culturally in touch and fashion savvy to express themselves and show the best of what’s in your closet.
Although these are some great pieces, the MAIN GOAL of afro punk is to be ALLLLLLL the way comfortable! For one, it’s going to be pretty hot, there are going to be numerous performances, heavy materials, extra accessories, and heels are probably not the way to go.
That’s just off personal observations.
You’ll probably be standing for 5hrs, limited seating, Mosh Pits galore. I’d hate to know I made this post and be forced to watch as guys get their new J’s stepped on and ladies run over by skaters in their 14inch heels.
Here are a few key looks I came across by stylists and bloggers I love. These looks are perfect for the AfroPunk Festival
|Flats worn By Aimee Song are always the way to go, standing in the AfroPunk crowd|
|Printed shorts are definitely the way to go. Not only is it fashion forward but, well within the limits of comfort.|
|Sneaks to Flee! Keep in mind the sk8rs, bmx’rs and mosh pits you’ll be dodging in style|
|NO EXTRA BAGGAGE! Check Out More Looks From Aimee HERE!|
|If you MUST wear heels, make sure they have a platform and wedge for comfort.|
|Again, if you MUST wear heels, limit the height level!|
For the bro’s, wear what you’ve got. The less effort you put in, the better… atleast in my opinion.
|This Chictopia style icon has the look|
|Check him out at timmelideo.com|
|AS stolen from Street Level Culture, this is DEFINITELY what you’ll be seeing|
|Street Level Culture captured this awesome look… Totally AfroPunk- Like|
