Each winter, the beautiful folks of the silver screen descend
upon the picturesque playground of Park City, Utah, for the
Sundance Film Festival. And while the focus of the festival is its
films, what all the beautiful people are wearing often takes center
stage. Here are four simple ways to make that fabulous sky resort
style your very own.
1 The "it" lid
Even if you're a vegan and only hunt for bargains, looking like
you enjoy trapping wildlife in your "down time" is the key. Treat
your noggin to the warmth and borderline dorkiness of the "trapper
hat." I own one of these bad boys and it is like wearing a space
heater on your thinker. Plus the flaps are just fun.
2 The WAY-too-long scarf
If your scarf looks like your grandma got carried away watching
Dancing With the Stars and just...kept...knitting, then you've
nailed this look. When worn with a hip-length not-too-puffy puffy
coat (so that not everything is over-sized), the big ol' scarf
won't swallow you whole. Let the ends hang down to your waist, make
the middle look like a boa constrictor has taken up residence
around your neck, and you're good to go.
3 Walk like an Eskimo
Three words for the perfect Sundance snow boots: Loads of laces.
These are the kind of boots that would put you in a straight jacket
if you had to help your kids into them, but it's just you, so
relax. Think knee-high, with tufts of "fur" peeking out, and a
touch of "I know how to craft candles from animal blubber" and
you've got it.
4 High-end flannel
This might be my favorite Sundance wannabe essential. Growing up
in the "sticks," I've always been a fan of the flannel anything,
even when it wasn't cute (I'm talking to you 1990s). But alas, the
female flannel shirt has finally found its fashion sense. Match
these fitted flannels with some skinny jeans, black leggings, or a
denim mini and tights (with those boots from #3), and bam! Instant
Park City native.
