1. GLAM GOLD
A gold-hued necklace by Whiting Davis, a brand known for its iconic mesh-metal fabric bags, is just the thing to accessorize your festival fabulousness. The necklace features the same flexible mesh-metal material as the designer’s bags. To add more hippy glam to this look, stack on some rings and earrings with raw gemstones, like these from Liz Larios. Available for $448 (ring), $130 (earrings) and $145 (necklace) at Nicole Miller.
2. TRICKED OUT TRILBY
The paisley detail around this Liberty London Liberty Art Fabrics trilby will certainly turn heads as you rock out at your next festival concert (plus, it provides some much needed shade on a sunny day!). Paired with colorful chukka boots, denim and a neutral-brown top, the hat is the perfect final touch to balance the entire look. Available for $35 at Nordstrom.
3. FESTIVAL FRINGE
Range Boutique is the place to go for that piece that combines laid-back Southern California cool and sophistication all in one. Case in point: This gorgeous genuine leather cross-body bag, the Indian Head Clutch by Old Clutch, is handmade just across the state border in Alabama and features on-of-a-kind details (check out the vintage pin). The convertible strap takes you from music festival wear to a night out at your favorite open mic venue! Available for $325 at Range Boutique.
We’d really be doing our local guitarists a disservice if we didn’t share the ultimate accessory for all of you seven string strummers: Seventh String Guitar Straps. We had the opportunity to sit down with Michael Keiley, Atlanta native and leather artisan for nearly 40 years, to chat about his famed guitar straps. Keiley will be the first to tell you that there are no shortcuts taken in the quality or preparation of his products. He imports bridle leather tanned in Pennsylvania, buffs the lining of it to create a no-slip finish and adds custom details from stitching to etching to embroidery. Take a close look at this piece and you’ll notice that many of Atlanta’s favorite local jazz artists are sporting Keiley’s custom leather straps. Starting at $159 at Seventh String Straps.
