However, no one gets to live in a festival dream land forever. We live in the real world (zzz), which isn’t always the most practical place for an armload of temporary armor.
Or is it?
Do: Consider your outfit
Nothing says, “I am still mentally sleeping in a tent and dropping the proverbial bass,” quite like cut-off jorts, a crop top and temporary tattoos. (So there’s your first don’t.)
Instead, wear something that will completely throw your audience off. Layer a bit. Get funky with volume. Then climb back into that mental tent and count your lucky stars.
Do: Apply in moderation
I think this is the one time on this site that we’ll advocate such restraint.
Don’t go overboard with the ice even though we know it’s tempting. You don’t want to be “gold girl” at your summer internship. Making a face like you mean it helps.
Do: Get creative and cut them up
Just because you buy a set of intricately woven chains doesn’t mean you have to go full Midas. Snip them down to your liking. Don’t be afraid of the scissors.
Do: Place in discreet locations
Can you spot the flash tat?
Or, don’t be discreet at all.
Not sure why we’re being so bossy today. Just put ’em right on your face.
Maybe people will think it’s a cool mole!
Do: bring enough to share.
