The 39 Best Street-Style Snaps From L.A.'s FYF Fest

Photographed by Lani Trock.
This weekend's FYF Fest made headlines aplenty. Of course, there was the last-minute news that Kanye West replaced Saturday's headliner Frank Ocean. Then, Rihanna made the crowd go crazy when she jumped on stage to join West for an impromptu performance. But there was one thing that managed to out-shine all the onstage happenings: The festival's amazing street style.

Fashionable folks from far and wide gathered at The L.A. Sports Arena & Exposition Park for two days of music revelry, and we were there to capture the action. Some festival goers opted for boho, straight-from-the-'70s looks, while others went more edgy. Yet they all had one thing in common: really, really, ridiculously good outfits.

Click through for the very best street-style snaps we came away with. If you weren't at FYF, be prepared for some serious FOMO...

Name: Tam Vo
What she's wearing: Shareen Rework two-piece top and skirt, Surfer the Bar hat, Aili Jewelry necklace, Kathleen Whitaker earrings, Electric sunglasses.

Describe your style in three words:
"Unexpected tiny details."

Who's the most badass band at FYF and why?
"It's a tie between Toro y Moi and Alvvays. Chaz's genius and ability to lead the band while singing and transitioning seamlessly back and forth between instruments never ceases to amaze me. I know he's from South Carolina, but his sunny spirit and calmness make him the personification of Hawaii to me.

"Alvvays is a female-fronted band from Toronto on Polyvinyl Records and they're badass because 1) women who rock are badass, and 2) they rock out in an understated way, like you're at sea having a delicious picnic and champagne on the coolest vintage sailboat ever."

What's your festival beauty secret?
"A fishtail side braid, Shiseido Ultimate Sun Protection Lotion SPF 50 WetForce, Dior Lip Glow, trèStiQue Shadow Crayons and Blush Stick in St. Barths Pink (this new makeup line is like the adult version of coloring and so perfect for travel/touch ups!), and Herbivore Botanicals Jasmine Body Oil."

What's the secret to master festival dressing?
"
Don't ask your friends what they're wearing. Dress to please yourself, and think strategically about super-strappy looks because you may be stuck with some regrettably odd tanlines after a few days in the sun. And always make sure that your outfit has pockets! My skirt has in-seam pockets that fit my phone, my trusty Dior Lip Glow, and a tiny notepad and pen for taking notes and interviewing bands/doodling."

Describe your style in three words:
"Crazy, sexy, cool."

Who's the most badass band at FYF and why?
"Morrissey. I think he's one of the only artists who has something to say. It's incredible that he was able to get meat banned at FYF. He's affecting change in an unprecedented way, and in a world where a lot of artists speak loudly, but don't say very much. He backs it up — and probably saved a few lives in the process."

What's your festival beauty secret?
"Agent Natura Holi(stick) Deodorant — it's amazing! It's made in L.A. and has the best ingredients: raw honey, avocado, organic coconut. It's smells like subtle lavender, is way better than perfume, and will keep you smelling great all day under the hot sun. "

What's the secret to master festival dressing?
"
You should be able to move in everything you wear. You might need to dance, dash backstage or stage dive."
