Outfit Ideas for Buffet & Hozier

Enhance your SB Bowl experience with your ensemble!

We are sharing our fashion tips for women in need of ideas of what to wear to the Santa Barbara Bowl this season. We’ve styled six looks with pieces from Dylan Star to pair with six diverse upcoming shows at the Santa Barbara Bowl. Up next Jimmy Buffet and Hozier!

Jimmy Buffett and The Coral Reef Band - Wednesday, October 16th at the Santa Barbara Bowl

Buffett fans, affectionately called Parrotheads, are no doubt looking forward to a night enjoying Jimmy’s island influenced jams. Jimmy released his Famous Son of a Son of a Sailor LP in 1978 and sang the title track on Saturday Night Live that year. He has since gone on more than 40 tours around the world, and the celebration is continuing through 2019.

"I recently started carrying a line of beautiful leather jackets, and when this aqua colored variation arrived, I knew it was perfect to wear to the Jimmy Buffet show. All that's missing is the margarita. The jacket is over a white-collared shirt, which every woman should have as a closet staple. The versatility is endless; tucked into jeans for lunch, under a power suit for an important meeting, or tied up for a night out as shown here. These flare jeans are by Show Me Your Mumu. I have yet to see a body shape these jeans don't flatter. They give lean girls an hour-glass figure; they make petite girls look taller. They are fancy and have loads of personality. The elastic waistband holds you in but is unbelievably comfortable."

 Hozier -  Thursday, October 24th at the Santa Barbara Bowl

Hozier is an Irish musician and singer-songwriter. His international breakthrough came after releasing his debut song "Take Me to Church," which became certified multi-platinum in several countries. This tour is in support of Hozier's latest album, Wasteland, Baby!

"I am so excited about this look; moody, dark, nostalgic, and beautiful all wrapped up into one outfit. Hands down, leather jackets are my favorite investment piece. I appreciate that along with everyone's leather jacket, there is often a story to go with it. Leather jackets get better in time as they soften and mold to your body. They end up getting little marks that give them character. Here in Santa Barbara, we can wear them year-round. We paired this one over a rust tee, the perfect color for Hozier's October show. This color works well if you have dark hair, and it will give a nice pop of color without losing the moody vibe we are after. Ripped charcoal skinny jeans and a black wool hat finish off the look. For her jewelry, I mixed both silver and gold pieces, and yes, you can wear both together! If I mix gold and silver, I try to stick to either all muted or all shiny pieces."
