Last weekend we were in LA soaking up the sun, rocking out to the newest bands and most importantly, scouting out denim street style inspiration at one of the West Coast’s coolest festivals, FYF Fest.
A festival staple, the coverall was out in full effect last weekend and we loved the variety of looks modeled on a variety of people: from `90s thrifted acid wash short-alls to clean and minimal, colored utility. But our star of the show was the silver babe pictured here in a full-length mid-blue coverall. Our shot of the day!
`70s vibes are never far away when you’re in LA and last weekend was no exception. We’d already clocked retro style returning at Way Out West in Gothenberg and these looks were continuing among the West Coast youth. Retro jean fits and shorts in mid-one denims were key and we even clocked a few boot-cuts and flares emerging. You heard it here first!
Patches continued as a strong and rebellious denim embellishment with punk, metal and harcore references driving many patch themes. We also loved the hand-painted and fabric-blocked looks and especially this stars and stripes back pocket above right.
In just over a week we’ll be rolling out our denim festival wrap on the site, with a round-up from 15 global festivals, breaking trends down into wash, fit and finish categories so watch out for that!
