Festival 101 With Brandi Cyrus

#SMxFESTIVAL

Navigating the behemoth that is Coachella can be near impossible without a little guidance. We consulted the coolest girls of the moment to shed light on how they survive multi-day festivals, while totally slaying it in style.

 

First up, we have Brandi Cyrus, host of PopularTV's 'The Queue' and fashion editor of Style Native. She gives us the 411 on which artists are on her radar, the shoe that will last her all weekend, and how her BFF is her number one essential.    

 

1. What do you look for in festival footwear?
Something that's comfortable is most important - and something that looks cool a little beat up and dirty, because you're at a festival after all! You may wreck your shoes. I tend to lean towards a low cut ankle boot or sneakers.

 
2. Fave go-to festival outfit? 
I love a long flow-y boho dress paired with a rock n' roll style boot!
 
3. What artists are on your must watch list? 
Ryan Adams was a big win for me this year, I was so happy to see him on some of the festival lineups this year! Jack White BLEW ME AWAY at Coachella, and I'm looking forward to seeing Mumford & Sons, Tove Lo, My Morning Jacket, and Kendrick Lamar at Bonnaroo later this year!
 
4. What can't you survive the weekend without? 
MY BEST FRIEND. Seriously it's all about who you're with and having my bestie with me is a MUST. Also... dry shampoo. But that's a regular thing for me, not just a festival thing ;-)
 
5. Biggest festival faux pas?
 Not wearing enough clothes. I get it - it's hot, and at festivals you can get away with showing more skin than usual... but do it in a way that you look tasteful and on-trend!
