Clashing prints, maxis, cropped tops, John Lennon sunnies, wide brim hats, and cross-body bags in the sun can only mean one thing! Hello Festival Season! The festival that started it all was Woodstock of '69 but now you can find a music festival no matter what part of the world you reside in. Almost every leading retailer has a festival fashion segment on their homepages and high fashion designers such as Dsquared have created a collection inspired by festival fashion. It is time to channel your down-to-earth, inner hippie, and frolic around the grass fields to your favorite music.

1. A major tip when wanting to look high fashion, with affordable prices, is to mix and match affordability with designer. So when it comes time to splurge go with a great shoe or a purse. In this first outfit each piece is under $30 and then a bit of a splurge on these Giuseppe Zanottie pink suede strap heels. Nothing screams power more then a leather piece. Show your man who is control with a leather pleated mini. (River Island top, OASIS pixie skirt and Rut&Circle Fiona clutch)
We have officially hit the month of April and Spring is in the air...or should we say in our hair? One of the biggest looks for headwear from Fall is staying with us for the warm weather and then will be us in the Fall for 2014 again. That's right, we are talking about snapbacks. The baseball cap was a NYFW show stopper. We spotted this look on the Spring 2013 runways of Alexander Wang, Cynthia Rowley, DKNY and many Fall 2014 catwalks as well.
Whether you decide to rep your favorite team or throw on a major metallic cap, rocking a snapback will enhance your style by adding a touch of tough-luxe us women are in need of from time-to-time. If you're not feeling so tough, at least try one of the printed floral styles, as it will keep your femininity grounded and in tact.
Paisley is this season's newest must-have print. The bohemian-inspired motif was seen all over the spring runways, including Emilio Pucci, Stella McCartney, and Jil Sander. And it's the perfect print to carry through to the autumn months.
It wasn't just the designers who had the print on their minds. Celebrities like Miranda Kerr and Solange Knowles have been seen rocking the droplet-shaped swirls in the form of shorts and dresses alike.
While flip flops are the ultimate summer staple, sometimes they just don’t cut it when you’re looking for the perfect summer footwear for your perfect summer wardrobe. You want to stay comfortable of course, whether you’re jet setting to exotic getaways, enjoying sunny summer weekends, or hoofing the city avenues of your daily grind. Sky-high wedges are just the ticket for party-filled nights, but keep them stowed away until after hours and enjoy these sweet flat sandals for day!

The actress is not only becoming a household name in film, but she is also quickly becoming one of the most stylish young starlets out there.

Are your in a rut with your wardrobe? Try something new and mix some patterns together for a fresh new look. To make sure you're not going pattern crazy, keep one color repeating in every piece of your outfit, incorporate structured patterns (stripes) with loose patterns like circles or swirls, or blend small designs with larger ones. Take a peek at the patterns we loved so much, we couldn't pick just one!
