If there's one thing we gleaned from our six-city Simon Malls
shopping tour over the last few months (affectionately referred to as Style Festival
), it's that kick-ass summer style isn't simply confined to music-festival grounds. From California and Texas to Florida and D.C., we saw all the fest style tropes — '70s boho, floral hippie vibes, chic all-black everything, and so much more. The sartorially inclined shoppers we met along the way reminded us that you never have to venture much further than your local mall to get inspired.
Here's a look back at all the fun we had this summer retreating from the sun for some cross-country retail therapy, jamming with bands like Cults and Austra, and brushing shoulders with the stylish folk you'll spot ahead. Over and out, Style Festival!
