With every audio competition will come an explosion of personal expression via vogue. At AthFest Songs and Arts Competition, attendees were being capable to personify who they are with the outfits they wore. Ease and comfort, versatility and creativeness had been the shining themes of the outfits worn by pageant goers. 

The Red & Black spoke with attendees about their outfit choice for the day and what they had in mind when piecing it alongside one another.

What they wore

Howard’s gentle brown floral-patterned sundress was from Old Navy, her white leather sneakers with a bronze accent panel on the back again of the shoe have been from Walmart and her rosy hippie-type sun shades are Ray-Bans.

Howard saved the significant humidity and heat of the day in brain when making her outfit. “Sundresses are the way to go,” Howard stated.

What they wore

Kemelmakher 1st pointed out her space-cat patterned socks that Spoerer gifted her, then went into detailing that the relaxation of her outfit was thrifted or handed down to her. Her cropped tank major was handed down from her aunt in London, her toddler blue polka dot ruffle shorts had been from a area Athens thrift shop and her accessories have been from her good friends.

Spoerer wore brown leather-based lower-leading sneakers that Kemelmakher located for him even though dumpster diving, a Grateful Lifeless tie-dyed graphic tee he bought while touring in the western facet of the country and his military green saggy shorts – which had been the convertible pants-to-shorts zipper style trousers, but he lost the bottom of them, so they are now just shorts.

What they wore

Calonius wore a button down summary-patterned shirt from Shein, Doc Martens, and rolled-up grey shorts with a brown leather-based belt. Cassaday wore a colourful, flowy button-down shirt from America’s Thrift Store, dark environmentally friendly ASOS shorts from America’s Thrift Retail store and boots he found on Tuesday Morning. 

They each dressed with their greatest outfit in head, not paying out a lot attention to the heat. Calonius joked he wore all black, and it was a undesirable conclusion because of the beating sun.

What they wore:

Musical artist Mo.Et wore generally thrifted finds, and white Nike Blazers. Shaw also wore thrifted outfits, and a pop of coloration with her pink trucker hat from Fly Studios. 

Mo.Et and Shaw kept comfort in brain when developing their outfits, generally with Mo.Et’s baggy, loose trousers and Shaw’s basic jean shorts and white T-shirt mixture. 

In buy to conquer the heat, most attendees wore tank tops, sundresses, shorts and loose tees and pants to be the most snug in the weather conditions and have the ideal time supporting community Athens artists and bands.
