SXSX is upon us- just as we're itching to whip out the warm-weather clothes. Hit up one of the most promising music-fueled events of the week wearing pieces from awesome emerging designers, and get ready to talk unfortunate fashion with the team behind Regretsy, one of the party's sponsors.
1. With its little polka dots, this tank dress from the shockingly well-priced line Motel is just sweet enough- and will look nearly as good with tights when you have to return to a cooler clime.
2. You don't want to look overdressed, so instead of piling on the accessories, standout by mixing patterns. This vest that Lyndsey Butler of Veda designed for Of a Kind is made of drapey, supple striped-wait for it-leather.
3. It might not be sandal weather at home yet, but it is in Austin. Take advantage and slip on a pair of basic-but perfectly so- handmade sandals by n.d.c. (available at one of the city's coolest stores, Kick Pleat).
4. Even though this bag by Warsaw-based Rib & Hull is tomato red, its super simple design means it goes with everything-and the handles ensure you won't tire out from lugging it around on your shoulder all day.
