According to Kris: Festive and Fashionable

By Kris James

Happy Wednesday Stylers! I know fairs and festivals are more about food, fun, and family than fashion. But hey, when is it not about fashion?! But giving a little thought to your clothing choices can make your time more enjoyable. Growing up in Campti, Smokin’ on the Red was the kick-off to the fall fest season. As it approaches this weekend, Oct. 18-19, it still gives me all the fall vibes I’ve been missing. Comfort should always be the top priority when putting together an outfit for a walking-intensive activity. Still, there are plenty of ways to be both stylish and comfy, even when you’re elbowing your way through the crowded streets.


I can’t even say how obsessed I am with Kimonos. Wearing the kimono as a statement piece is a great festival look. The kimono adds a fashionable element without sacrificing comfort. You can pair this item with some flair jeans and a simple top underneath.


The embroidery trend is huge this season, particularly with floral designs. This trend lets you put your stamp on key items like jeans and jackets, giving them a fun and fashionable look.

Solid Basic

If you’re like me then you already have a solid color basic t-shirt in your closet. This trend hypes up the basic tee by adding accessories like scarves or layered items. Throw on your t-shirt with basic or embroidered skinny jeans for an easy look

Structured Hats

Hats are taking over fall festival fashion. Fall styles feature more structure with medium to small brims, like a fedora hat. Pair the hat with denim, a simple shirt and cool jewelry for a complete look.

As we move into the fall festival season, take notice of these fashion trends that can update any look.
