How To Nail Austin Street Style Like A Local

Of the many festivals out there, Austin City Limits — with it's eclectic lineup, hippest-city-in-the-South locale, and vintage-rock aesthetic — is definitely one of the coolest around. The temperature, on the other hand? Not so much. Despite it's October date, most days are sunbaked and sweltering — meaning that tough-girl leather jacket and thrifted kimono you were saving for Florence + The Machine's set just aren't gonna cut it. So the question is: How do you look cool when the weather is anything but?

Luckily for us out-of-towners, Austin girls have perfected the art of the edgy #OOTD that doesn't involve severely overheating or resorting to the same old cutoffs-and-crop-top uniform. With this is mind, we combed through the best local street style we could find and put together a packing list from H&M that's part edgy and part '70s-girl-with-the-band inspired. Even if you didn't snag a ticket to this year's festivities, these looks are everything you need to combat the Indian summer in style.
