Waves of Bay Area tech geeks, music lovers and general party people alike have been gettin' down in Austin-town at South by Southwest (SXSW). With every concert being a party, and every conference having an after-party, it's basically Spring Break for grown-ups.
SXSW is rooted in rock 'n' roll, and with that in mind, we've comprised an edgy layered outfit. This dress is sophisticated enough to attend lectures in, sexy enough for mega-networking and, with a trendy hat and sunglasses, its hip enough for any indie band. When the sun goes down, bring out that statement necklace and cropped leather jacket -- urban chic, but still rock 'n' roll. Last but not least, when in Texas, just remember, everything goes with a good pair of cowboy boots.
