What To Wear: SXSW Music Festival 2011

I dropped my man off at the airport a few days ago so that he could escape the non-stop torrential downpour we’ve been enjoying. He fled the scene for the week to trade gray Portland in for sunny Austin, Texas where one of the nation’s largest music festivals is currently taking place. SXSW (South by Southwest) is essentially a Woodstock of sorts. Except that folks stay in hotels, wear shoes and speed stick. For many of the other huge festivals, there are often boatloads of photographers roaming the streets and concerts, snapping outfits of the moment. Daydreaming of shorts and tank tops, I was thinking this morning about this year’s SXSW style. Nothing has been posted online yet, so I’ve pulled garments and accessories from our warehouse; things I would love to see on SWSW’s fashion forwards.
