Finishing out summer festival season 2013, the second (and hopefully annual) Made in America event has come and past, and oh boy, was it ever a blast! The air was warm, bands were hot and fashions blazing! This year, staying consistent with the patriotic trend we have seen this past year, I am proud to say that Made in America ran the gamut for good ole' US of A pride displayed any and every way you turned.
Last year, at the 2-day concert event featuring Jay-Z and Pearl Jam, there certainly was a predominance of red, white and blue garb, but this year's allegiance was overwhelming. Not only was the flag proudly displayed by a number of concert-goers, but there was red, white and blue covering at least 75% of the crowd. Some of the head-turners included face and body paint-adorned fans showing American pride despite the sticky heat.
Among the heavily predominate patriotic theme, we saw epic fashions from every decade of fashion known to man. While we saw a heavy 90's influence (fanny packs included...), which is currently underway, we also saw a plethora of crop tops from the 80's, cut-offs from the 70's, bold prints and patterns from the 60's, headscarves and sunglasses from the 50's, high-waisted bottoms from the 40's, hats from the 30's and even fringe and long necklaces from the 20's. While I mentioned in a previous article a few months back, the style of today has an 'anything goes' policy and as long as you have the confidence to wear whatever you want, then go ahead and rock it girl!
