Animal Collective, Guns N’ Roses, these are just some of the iconic names that made their way to The Governors Ball stage this past weekend. But among some of the famous rockers that made their fashion mark through flowered headbands, leather shorts, and crocheted tops, it was the fans that decided to bring the fashion heat.
Coming from all corners of the United States, ravers and rockers glammed up their style even during the torrential downpour that hit the crowd Friday night. Although the weather was not ideal for this special evening, many decided to ditch their ponchos and vamp up their look with a little extra mud. Slip N’ Slide anyone? One fan said, “the rain only made me feel more dedicated. My high-waisted black shorts and metallic bandeau brought out my wild side. The mud was just an added bonus.”
"Flowers in Your Hair" seemed not only to be a Lumineers song from Sunday night’s concert but also a trend at the festival this year. Not even Tropical Storm Andrea could stop Governors Ball from happening this weekend. Crowds traded in their Havianas and Nikes for rain boots, thick mud and music. Festival experiences would not be complete or poetic if it wasn’t for the reoccurring fashion trends we constantly saw. Angelic flower crowns and intricate headbands were major, like this one from up and coming accessories designer Heart Shape Hotel. Edward Sharpe and The Magnetic Zeros lead vocalist, Jane Castrinos, rocked out on stage while wearing the daintiest string flower crown when the band performed their hit “Home.”
