POPMATTERS SPONSOR—Erika Forster, keyboardist and vocalist for the all-female trio Au Revoir Simone, is shown here in a look from the new GAP Spring line, which she picked out specifically to wear at the array of music festivals that will grace the upcoming summer season. With such standouts as Coachella, Lollapalooza, Bonnaroo, and a plethora of others on the horizon, the summer festival circuit promises to be filled with exciting music, colorful crowds, and, of course, fantastic fashion.
For a visit to the festivals, Forster has chosen an outfit that reflects both her personal taste and the overall vibe of ‘casual fun, yet fashion-savvy’ that tends to permeate Festival ambience. She sports a threadless T-shirt from GAP’s spring collection, emblazoned with a playful owl design – his left eye reads “I” and his right sports a heart, while his torso is composed of the letter “u”—all elements that work together to create a subtle message that reads “I love you”. The blond-haired beauty’s adorable and casually creative tee is paired with a long gray jacket, dark stretchy pants, and a pair of maroon shoes that are both eye-grabbing and practical for a long day of festival exploration. The shoes’ unique hue also complements the color of the heart on Erika’s T-shirt, making her overall look appear coordinated and polished, while maintaining an easy and relaxed air.
This comfortable, stylish and sophisticated ensemble perfectly reflects the vibe of a summer music festival – the overall setting is on the casual side, yet it’s execution is planned to a T. Staged largely outdoors, festivals allow guests to enjoy nature while they experience new music from artists, both upcoming and established, and socialize with other concert guests. The look Erika Forster sports here is cute and on-trend while also being comfortable, making it the perfect go-to outfit for the exciting lineup of summer music festivals that will kick into high gear in the warm months to come.
