It was 1995 at the first Basilica Block Party, and the fashion headliners were distinctly of the times: denim overalls, cutoff shorts, crop tops and plaid button-ups (tied around the waist, of course). Twenty years later, we’re reviving variations of those closet staples from the mid-’90s for our favorite summertime music festivals.

Next up in this busy outdoor concert season is the holy grail (so to speak) of long-running local fests — the Basilica of St. Mary’s annual block party this Friday and Saturday.

Already this summer, festival-goers have been outfitting themselves in the name of comfort, from classic maxi dresses to cool prints. We found plenty of inspiration at local boutiques to get you ready for a music and fashion-filled weekend.
