The return of SXSW brings about tons of opportunity for fashionistas to showcase their Texas-sized style chops. Arguably the best festival in the universe -- though you'll hear no argument from me -- SXSW is centered around all things hip and happening. There's a specific type of style sure to be seen around the streets of downtown Austin in the coming weeks. If you're a glam chick looking to dress the part, a laid-back approach to luxe is the name of the game. The tried and true denim cut-off is a great garment to sport for a comfortable, casual and cute ensemble but a pair of printed pants, loafers, a vintage T-shirt and a handy dandy hat are the way to go to make a fashion splash at Southby. A boho chic ensemble of bold, graphic prints, fringe and denim is a solid way to make a splash, as well.
In addition to all the fashionable outfits to be had, there are tons of fashion-inspired happenings going on at SXSW this year. From panels surrounding mega brand Nasty Gal to the uber exciting "Fashion & Rock n' Roll: A Timeless Bond" discussion taking place on March 14, fashion certainly has its place among SXSW festivities and I can't wait to attend this super fascinating event. What better epicenter for the combination of fashion and rock n' roll than the good ole' city of Austin, am I right?!
