The Free People Festival 2016 lookbook has just been unveiled, and it’s kaleidoscopic. Whenever Coachella and Spring Break are in the air, Free People delights us with an ad hoc inspirational festival lookbook, which this time literally catapults us back to the Seventies and makes us feel a bittersweet kind of nostalgia (even though most of us weren’t even born, in the Seventies). Along with Free People, Spanish retailer Mango treated us to some festival-inspired proposals too, meaning that we now have an array of festival outfis for 2016 to wear not only to the forthcoming spring festivals, but also to all the cheerful summer parties too. You can already snag up these lovely essentials for your spring wardrobes heading to Free People’s website!
While Free People’s latest lookbook featured a softer focus and accentuated the Seventies’ most delicate and boho side, the Kaleidoscope Skies lookbook celebrates the hippy culture at its purest, with all its cosmically-charged colors, magical rainbow touches and goddess-like silhouettes. Lensed by Tina De Leon and styled by Karolina Bernat, the Free People Kaledoscope Skies lookbook features Alina Weber, letting her perfectly embody the whole party girl in the Seventies mood. Waving us peacefully off with a tambourine in her hand, Alina Weber sports au naturel makeup and hairstyle that gracefully match the proposals’ floaty lines and vintage prints, not to mention the shredded effects, the fringing and studs that will make anyone giggle.
As for the hues, the lookbook brings in all the colors of Mother Nature, meaning that one could easily find anything from earth-toned blouses to billowy, fresh rainbow-colored maxi gowns. The line-up does not only showcase oversized attire options, as most of the shorts and shirts are meant to make your legs, bellies and shoulders shine under the summery bright sun. For an even cooler effect, and just in case you would like to cover a few more areas, try adding length with any of the fringed waistcoats, which are also meant to be paired either with summer flats or chunky ankle cowgirl boots.
Suede vests will protect you from the windiest days, while band tees will serve as the perfect daytime outerwear option when you just want to go to sunbathe at the park (not to mention the possibility to sporting them with a more glam rock outfit). Bell-bottom jeans, lace-up crop-tops and multi-colored crochet pullovers will then quickly become essential staples to wear both at the festivals and at any Seventies-themed party.
To top it all off, Free People put a lot of emphasis on the accessory line, offering quirky kaleidoscopic sunglasses, suede hats, leather choker necklaces and, of course, headbands, which will effortlessly complete each festival outfit.
