How to wear your festival essentials every day

There's no buzzkill like the end of an epic festival weekend. After a few days of magical sunsets and selfies, it's back to reality (oh, there goes gravity). The biggest misconception? That your gear doesn't translate to normal day-to-day life. Yes, fringe and crop tops may not be celebrated at the 9-to-5 — but don't sweat it. The ladies of ASOS US are here to show you that with a few simple tweaks, festival style can be a winner long after your wristbands come off...

The festival dress

Sheer gear may be saved for OOO moments — but think of it as a layer player. Team a funky frock with an otherwise office-appropes white shirt and dark denim combo, and nail the daytime style game. Festi-fly accessories like patterned espadrilles and mega-chokers take the look to the next level if you've got some cocktails on the iCal.

The band tee

Retro T-shirts are pretty much everything right now — and a sleek suit is the ideal way to take 'em from backstage to the boardroom (OK, maybe not a boardroom... but definitely somewhere totally important). Classic pumps are the perfect contrast to the bold ensemble.

The badass crop top

Forget flower crowns. Instagram's favorite festival piece this season is a crop top made of something seriously unexpected (like this lil' metal number). Yes, we saw bloggers and boss babes trying this trend paired with merely cut-offs, but you can make it werk any day of the week with the addition of a classic white shirt and ankle-grazing jeans. Voilà!
