The Hot Looks of FYF
FYF Fest this year felt like Coachella in L.A. -- the stages and everything else have gotten huge -- although the vibe was even more music-centric and laid back. Though in the heart of L.A., it wasn't about being "seen" as much as seeing one's favorite bands, even in the VIP areas.
The no-frills feel was reflected in the fashion choices too. Yeah, there was a lot of "eastsider" facial hair, '80s touches like neon and acid wash, and those flower head garlands. Mostly though, people were dressed for comfort and stomping about. We were proud about the relative lack of self-conscious irony out there. Here are the top 10 fashion moments of the festival.
You know those wobbly women who cluelessly wear sky high heels to the concert and then get drunk and fall all over everyone? We didn't see those. Preferred footwear included sturdy and substantial stuff like Chucks, motorcycle boots and Dr. Martins (like these cuties from the Good Times Ice Cream truck). Also knee-socks were everywhere. Mark our words: docs and socks are "it" this fall.
