What to Wear for SXSW

SXSW means a little something different to all of us. Perhaps you were roped into it by your job or you're hoping to network furiously during the week or you're just a lover of live music in search of your next favorite band. No matter the reason, you've got to get dressed and you've got to look good. 

There's a lot of freedom in what you can wear to SXSW, and with freedom comes questions. When you know the rules of style, there's only one question you need to focus on though "what is the outfit that will make you feel absolutely stunning at the event?" 

If you're left without a clear answer to this question, here are a few ideas to consider when putting together your outfit for the party ahead. 

Singin' The Blues

The weather will be unpredictable (as always.) Mix textures like cotton and leather to be prepared for anything. 

Tie up your top for a flirty touch.

Sunglasses are the perfect Austin accessory. Go with your most eclectic to bring personality into your look.


Rock a graphic tee and a blazer for a professional edge with a rock n' roll vibe.

Let your hair down to give your look a wild and free feel.

Mules are my favorite trend of the moment, and they're comfortable too! Slip yours on and head to the event for a look that you'll feel relaxed in all day.

Party preppy

SXSW is about energy, so pull out your most vibrant accessories to celebrate. Love this cuff? Use the code "GreerVIP" to get 30% off this and every piece at NinaBerenato.com.

Pattern match a smaller stripe with a larger stripe to pop both pieces into a cute and complex look. 

And remember style is about highlighting you. If you need more guidance on how to create looks from your own wardrobe, book a Greer Style Chat to talk 1-on-1 with me about your unique needs and image goals. Xoxo, Raquel
