Austin City Limits Music Festival is less than a month away, and we’re spilling our ultimate style secrets! From what to wear to the festival, to local eateries with the tastiest pancakes in Austin, get inspired to blast your perfect ACL lineup and dress the part! Austin is a laid back city with friendly folks everywhere you turn, so pick out your best boho look and be sure to stop by our flagship store while you’re in town!
Before the festival: Kerbey Lane Cafe is an Austin staple for early risers and night owls alike. The 24-hour eatery is home to, arguably, the most delicious pancakes in the city. With five locations around town, it’s the perfect breakfast hub to fuel up before heading off to the fest. From seasonal salted caramel pancakes (yes, they’ll be served during ACL), to tex-mex options galore, get both your coffee and Kerbey Queso fix during your morning visit. Did we mention they have vegan items, too? So, put on a comfy denim shift dress and colorful KS jewels, and you’re ready for foodie heaven!
What to wear: Festival fashion is in full force during the three day music frenzy. Although ACL takes place in October, make no mistake that Austin weather has entered fall temperatures. Thus, breezy fabrics and free-flowing blouses or dresses make for the coolest style choices. Show some skin in high waist shorts and a beaded crop top, or keep it classic and simple in a striped dress cinched at the waist. Add chic booties and turquoise jewels to complete your look!

After a long day of moseying from stage to stage, a cocktail or locally brewed beer is the perfect way to relax and enjoy one of Austin’s most prized bar districts. Rainey Street is home to old houses converted into bars and nestled just south of famous 6th Street. With an array of bar atmospheres to choose from; quaint, sports-centric, romantic or trendy, there’s an ambiance to please everyone. If you didn’t get your salty fix from a food trailer at the festival, be sure to stop by Banger’s Sausage Bar and Beer Garden – known for their savory made to order sausages and over 100 beers on tap! You’ll likely feel like indulging in the food and drinks selection on Rainey Street, so keep your outfit casual and spice it up with chunky wedges and statement jewels!
