These Are Our Favorite Summer '18 Festival Trends

Style

Summer '18 is here and festival season is in full swing. And whether you're going to Curlfest, Afropunk, or Made in America, you need to ensure you have your looks down.


Fanny packs are back with a vengeance, and I am in full support of this movement, it's such a practical way to store all your essentials while still looking lit. Sportswear has been another key trend this year. You will be sure to find other festival-goers donning tracksuit pants, bike shorts, shell suits and dad trainers. And, if you want an easy life, rock a matching set because co-ords are everywhere now. Old favorites prints and sequins also remain festival staples.

A few months ago, I had a breakthrough. After a promotion led to me having a completely different supervisor, what was once a five-year plan to transition out of the organization I was working at, turned into five-month plan. It's a scary point in my life that I haven't found myself at before: I'm not leaving a job because I want better pay or a higher position, I want to leave simply because I'm unhappy.

Just over a year ago, Chardae Jenkins decided that it was time for a change.

She had a job that she enjoyed as a junior publicist for Allied Moxy, the African-American marketing arm of Allied Integrated Marketing. She worked with a team that she loved—a small group of go-getters committed to bringing entertainment marketing campaigns to life for films such as Straight Outta Compton and Barbershop 3: The Next Cut. Not to mention that the pay wasn't too shabby either, enough for Chardae to stack almost eight grand in her two-and-a-half years at the company.

Even before I went to look up the word to make sure I understood what it meant, a statement that has always made me wince in my mind is "I don't have any regrets" (or some variation of that).
