ah, festival season. that wonderful time of year when hands are in the air, the vibes are always right, and glitter, kimonos, & flower crowns + floral prints are the new black. 🤘
panorama fest went down this weekend in new york city, and i was so pumped to see janet jackson, sza and the rest of the line-up bring their a-game to the stage. naturally, i had no choice but to bring my a-game in the style department, and my buds over at express men made that (very) light work.
since summer is the season of denim, i came through — triple threat style — with a head-to-toe jean ensemble. i've always stood by the idea that a canadian tuxedo (translation: a denim jacket/shirt + jeans) is an easy style win, so i broke out this fresh combo from express's latest assortment, making sure to match the washes as best as i could. however, as much as i love a good outfit, it's still summer, so i kept the layers as light as possible, throwing on a relaxed tank top underneath.
for the sake of these pictures, i'm rocking chelsea boots down below—mainly because they're my shoe of choice for full-length jeans—but i switched to a pair of sneakers before hitting the muddy turf on randall's island. and up top, i broke out my usual dad cap in a nice denim finish for a boyish, more street-ready touch to offset the western-ish moment i was building from the neck down.
i really love this style equation because, with a few tweaks, you can dress it up as much or as little as you need for it to work from the fest grounds to the street. ex. replace the jeans with shorts for a solid picnic/bbq look, swap out the tank top with a graphic tee or sweatshirt for weekend-in-the-city vibes, etc.
