FYF Style, Day Three: Summer Prints And Your Next Laptop Wallpaper
FYF Fest got lucky this year, as it was only a week removed from a stifling heat wave that broke temperatures across the board. Instead, the festival (held in the areas immediately outside the Memorial Coliseum) was treated to high-but-tolerable temps that hovered around the mid to high 80s.
Still, it was plenty warm, and those present had come dressed accordingly (with the exception of Chicano Batman, who wore their customary navy suits, and Bjork, who arrived at Day 1 dressed as...Bjork?). The trend continued on Day 3, where we encountered a profusion of floral prints, fruit-themed patterns, and other graphics that could be a good addition to the background on your laptop and/or phone. There was also the type of zany colors you'd find in a bag of Jolly Ranchers (though, plenty of folks showed up in grayscale, too).
Our favorite summer looks? It might be the shirt with the fruit salad theme, the pink hat à la
Lady Gaga Joanne, and a top that may have been inspired by The Fifth Element. We also dug DJ Avalon Emerson's simple-yet-classic look that brings the French New Wave to mind (replete with heart-shaped sunglasses!). And we're never bored of Chicano Batman's pairing of casual kicks and well-tailored suits. Check out the gallery above and steal some looks for next year's FYF Fest. Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, after all.
