One thing that we look forward to during SXSW more than celeb run-ins or free booze is observing the unique styles this 10-day free-for-all festival brings to our city. Almost every type of fashion on the style spectrum can be spotted, from a classic festival boho look to western wear to '60s psychedelia looks. One trend that seemed the most prevalent was the injection of bold colors, whether subtly or doused over the entire outfit, it's clear that everyone is over winter and ready to jump into spring.
