The Mad Mix

Feathered headdresses float atop earthly goddesses while tasseled tops drape from the d?colletage of living nymphs in a fantasy kingdom erected in the Nevada desert known as Burning Man.

The world?s most famous music and art festival is where the boldest fashion party of the season is happening. Partially influenced by the wares of indigenous tribes from North America, things like beads, feathers, cuffs and leather are de rigueur as festival-goers (known as Burners) proudly concoct outfits that put their personalities, and plumage, on full display.

Laura Willis, founder of the famed New York City second hand shop Screaming Mimi?s, is flooded each year with Burners shopping for their festival wardrobes. She enthusiastically describes the Burner look as, ?Mad Max meets Shaman meets Snake Charmer meets Astronaut.?
 
If you want to incorporate Burning Man?s warrior goddess spirit into your end-of-summer look, then add feathers, bold arm cuffs, amulets, macram? and animal prints -- like this Grey Plumas necklace by Daniela Bustos or this Goddess Power Cuff by Isharya.
 
 
 
 
 
Be unafraid to mix ideas and pieces into something with an otherworldly feel. Drape this Third Eye headpiece by Yelena Noah over your forehead and then wrap our very own Raspberry tie-dye scarf over your head for a boho-Indian look. Or try coupling the Havana Tropical Necklace by Olivia Dar with this Orange Macrame Bikini by Daniela Bustos Maya. And if a little Burning Man flavor is what you're after, accent your outfit with this pink suede beaded clutch by Olivia Dar.
