Music Festival Style Tips You Need To Know, According to Janina Vela
When it comes to dressing up for a music festival, it seems like all the fashion girls have the style equation locked down already. A crop tank, denim cut-offs, a pair of ankle boots, and you're good to go. But this year, ditch the usual Coachella-inspired OOTDs and make a fashionable splash with outfits that marry style and comfort with total ease.
During the launch of Forever 21's Spring Summer Collection, YouTube Vlogger and Candy Social Star Janina Vela shared with us her must-follow style tips for music festival OOTDs that are nothing short of fun, trendy, but still 100% comfortable and totally wearable.
So with the music festival season just around the corner, make sure to read through Janina's style tips and ready yourself for your most fashionable music festival looks yet!
Do: Bring a fun, bright jacket!
One thing that Janina realized when she attended her first music festival this year was that it is really hot during the day, but as soon as the sun sets, it can get pretty cold. Wear a cute knit tank to go with your favorite pair of shorts, but don't forget to bring a cute jacket to help you beat the cool winds at night.
Style AND comfort.
We see a lot of girls who rock on-point looks, but are secretly in pain because their heels are too high or their pants are too tight. Shove that "tiis-ganda" mentality aside because you have to be super comfortable in your outfit whether you're in a music festival or not. Why bother choosing between style or comfort when you can have both?
Do: Bring a cap.
Your hair game may be on-point when you step out of the door, but there's no stopping the mighty winds during while the festival is ongoing! And what better way to hide a bad hair day than with a cute and fun cap?
Patches, patches, patches!
Patches are all the rage these days and for a good reason, too! It adds a certain level of quirkiness to any OOTD and are super fun to play with. Choose a jacket with a bold patched statement at the back for an edgy look or opt for a patched mini for a fresh look for the day.
Do: Pair a loose top with a pair of denim cut-offs.
For an easy look that spells cool casual, but still put together, grab an oversized top and wear it with your favorite pair of denim shorts. Half tuck your loose top under your cut-offs and you're all set.

Here's my two cents on the letter, call for help of our medical frontliners. Let’s hear what our healthcare workers have to say and try to understand it from their point of view, they have every right to criticize how this medical crisis is being handled by the government... after all, they're the experts on the topic. Though we see the frontliners as heroes in our eyes, the lack of concrete plans from the government to combat COVID-19 makes them feel otherwise. Healthcare workers are already starting to voice out how they feel as though they are being sacrificed as they follow through their sworn oath. We wouldn’t send our soldiers to war unarmed and without a concrete plan; the same should be expected for our frontliners. How can we send them to battle without proper gear? Why is there still a debate on whether mass testing is needed or not when the experts on that field continuously insist its importance in flattening the curve? Why is this still not the priority when it’s literally our lives on the line? It’s not like the medical experts demanding for mass testing are just stating their opinion about this mindlessly, they studied this laboriously. Make them feel heard so that all the sacrifices that they’re doing and all the deaths of their colleagues are not in vain. More than the words of praises, what our medical professionals truly need right now is TANGIBLE support. Here is to hoping they get that soon. @errren.22

Here is a photograph taken yesterday from the photo shoot I did in our house. ? I really love dressing up and being dolled up, it makes me feel great and confident of who I am ?
I was actually hesitant to post these pictures of mine. My sister eveb asked me to change my Facebook Profile Picture and it took me hours to decide if I should. But, I realized that this is me, the real me. I should be confident of my body and of who I really am.
At the end of the day, I dress up not for other people but for myself ? To all the ladies out there and even gentlemen who are taking a second to think if they should post their pictures, worried about what will others say their body, remember that we just need to be just ourselves. Be confident and let us support each other ? Let us be friends! IG: @romynaaaaaaa_
They say time heals all wounds, but it has been ages - is heartbreak exempted?
I have forgotten when was the last time we shared a smile - the last time when I saw the glow in your eyes and the last time when you whispered an I love you to me. I have forgotten when, but here I am - writing to you again.
I do not know if you will read this or you will just add this one to my proses and poems that you left unread, but you see, I am still hoping. I am mailing the pain of us to the gods out there - hoping they can take the pain away. I should have gotten over you, but instead of forgetting and accepting our ending, I am writing about us in tissue sheets, carving about us on trees, telling about us on the back of my journals, hoping that a thousand or a million write ups about us, can make me forget about what happened.
I am writing, waiting for the point where I can no longer write anymore, for I have none to tell - but when? I have nothing in me anymore, but the memories of us - and no matter how hard I try put those to its own grave, the memories grow back like lilies in the swamp - painful and beautiful at the same time.
No matter how hard I try to silence those and put it at the back of my mind, those ring back, playing like the favorite song we used to listen. They say heartbreaks turn into poetry and that is what happening to us - but poetry should be dulcet and dreamy, why does ours sound like pain and agony? They say time heals all wounds, but it has been ages - is heartbreak exempted? Darling, I guess not.
