Vintage View: The Original Festival Fashionistas


With spring and summer music festivals well under way, we decided to go straight to the source to find festival fashion inspiration from those original music festivals that started it all in the ’60s and ’70s. From Newport Folk to the very first Woodstock festival, we’re taking tips from the original hipsters and hippies and their free-spirited style.

    I love this! So much of my personal style is inspired by music, and the looks that go with it.
