Here are some things we love: style (obvi), models, food, music, and humor. Do those things go together all the time? Unfortunately not, so when they do, we get all kinds of excited. You may have heard that this weekend is the Hangout Fest in Gulf Shores, Alabama, and that we'll be streaming the WHOLE thing live at OK, so there we have music covered, what about the style? Well, we're totally excited to announce that the HILARIOUS host of VH1's Model Employee Chrissy Teigen will be taking her host game on the road, and joining Vinny Guadagnino as an MTV Hangout Fest correspondent. Chrissy will be interviewing bands, breaking down the festival style, and much more, and with a lineup that includes rad names like Kendrick Lamar, Solange, and Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, it's gonna be major. Now, we've been following Chrissy's hilarious Twitter for awhile now, and it never ceases to crack us up in an embarrassing way. Not only that, but the model also posts AMAZING recipes on her food blog, So Delushious!, on the regs, and they always, always make our mouths water. Did you know she wanted to be a chef before becoming a model? See? Fave. The hilarious Chrissy will be supplying us with style quips and belly-laughs all weekend long. We. Are. Psyched. So psyched, in fact, that we got Chrissy to take some time out of her totally nutty travel schedule to chat with us about the gig and give us a little taste of what we have to look forward to at Hangout.

Unless you live in a vacuum bubble that seals off contact to all things nostalgic and AWESOME, you've probably heard that TLC IS REUNITING. And not only that, reportedly, T-Boz and Chilli are linking back up with the late great Lisa "Left-Eye" Lopes via digital projections of precious archival performance footage (no Tupac hologram, guys) for a full-fledged reunion TOUR. One of the most iconic and prolific girl groups of the '90s will reassemble this July at VH1's Mixtape Festival, and we CAN'T. WAIT. In fact, we're so on the edge of our seats about this that we're already picking out what outfits we'll wear to the show—inspired by the ladies themselves, of course. Check 'em out below, and no, they don't include this No Scrubs tee or this votive candle. We don't remove those from the shrine.



A TLC reunion tour is a definite cause to go a little "crazy."

This is not to say that overalls are "crazy." On quite the contrary, we LOVE THEM. But pairing these acid wash overalls ($155.00) with a banana print crop top ($37.41), printed multi-color sneaker wedges ($88.00), and tying a seriously VIBRANT orange layering crewneck ($36.11) around your waist? That veers you right into crazytown. (No, erm, not that Crazy Town.) Top it all off with a pair of oil slick lensed Jeepers Peepers ($29.93), two raver pigtail buns, and maybe a condom or three attached to your ensemble, and you're "Fresh Prince of Bel-Air"-extra ready!

Unless you happen to be one of those lucky people who never gets hot and sweaty (seriously though, what's their sercret?!), looking cute at a festival like Coachella is a tough feat to pull off. We're talking about a situation where you're sitting outside all day under the beating sun, surrounded by thousands of pushing people all elbowing to see the same band you want to...not exactly a picture-perfect moment. But hey, it IS possible, and some of our MTV Style favorites are here to prove it. It seemed like everyone and their mother hit Indio for weekend 1 of the fest, and over the course of 72 hours, some key trends emerged. Whether it's stars like Solange sporting ladylike dresses, Karen O in crazy prints, K.Stew in her trademark snapback, or Vanessa Hudgens in a flower crown (yep, they're still around), these musicians and their famous fans manage to keep cool without sacrificing style. See how they did it below!

Alright, so we all know that Miss Solange Knowles is the reigning queen of festival dressing. Rather than stick with lazy girl options like ripped denim and cropped tops, she cranks up the quirk in retro originals like printed suits and button-ups. She rocked this look hard at SXSW, but this weekend the singer gave her signature style a ladylike spin in a lemon-print sleeveless frock and matching yellow sandals. Not that she would ever need to, but Katy Perry also proved her pinup status at the Lacoste party decked out in a Dolce & Gabbana skirt and bra set (also the same one Iggy Azalea wore in her "Work" music video). Then there's Jessie Ware, rounding out the trio in a red and white striped crop top and printed tea length skirt. Whereas Solange and Katy opted for heels, Jessie shed her shoes to go barefoot during her performance. She topped off her look with some raver pigtail buns, and somehow, we love her even more than before.

Whether you're going to weekend one or weekend two, there's no denying that Coachella is upon us. That's right, the yearly celebration of bandeau tops, headbands, and...wait, it's about the music? Oh right, we forgot, sorry. Sometimes it can feel like our favorite festivals get a little lost amid all the celeb sightings and street style snaps, but we are a style blog after all and honey, we know you want to look good no matter what. In the true spirit of Coachella, we decided to build a series of looks inspired by some of our favorite bands playing the fest. After all, it's not next-level nerdy (like wearing a band's t-shirt to their show *collar tug*) to dress thematically, right?!


Vibe right to Kurt Vile in easy chambray.

I'm just going to go out on a limb here and say that Wakin' On a Pretty Daze is one of the best albums of the year. If you're not familiar with Philly longhair Kurt Vile, familiarize yourself right quick because your life will never be the same. The album is filled with sweeping, chilled out guitar jams that make us feel as warm and fuzzy as a springtime crush, and we just know that seeing Vile play the songs live in the desert will be a moment worth swooning over. For enjoying some Vile in style, you'll want to make sure you have your vibes right. The Summer Feeling Dress ($88.00) from Nasty Gal is a way to wear denim while still feeling breezy, and paired with Marais' field boot ($92.50) you'll be ready for whatever adventurous path the night should take. Of course if we're talking about vibes you need to have your crystals on lock, and this raw rose quartz necklace ($38.00) from Etsy will protect you against anyone or anything that should try and send a bummer your way. Accessories should be kept to a minimum in the hot summer sun, so a simple pink seed bead bracelet ($9.99) from Madewell and a red accented threaded belt ($6.80) will provide a pop of color to keep you from blending in too much with the sky and the earth. Finally, some sunnies, like the SUPER Lucia Puma Sunglasses ($269.00) and a simple cross body bag--so your hands are free to hold tight to whoever makes you feel aforementioned spring crush feelings--like the the Essex Minibag ($98.00) is perfect for carrying anything you might need.

Usher, Kid Cudi, ScHoolboy Q

If 2013 SXSW is any indication, the bucket hat will be even bigger this spring and summer.

It's difficult to pinpoint when and who exactly started the late '80s/'90s bucket hat trend. Was it LL Cool J circa "Going Back to Cali" or Nickelodeon's Salute Your Shorts? Thanks (or no thanks) to sparse documentation of that initial rise of the fisherman's chapeau, the world may never know. One thing is for sure, though: the hat with the 360 brim is experiencing a major present-day comeback, and nothing has made that more abundantly clear than the stages of this year's SXSW music festival. Bucket hats of all shapes and sizes made their way onto last week's Austin stages by way of Usher, Kid Cudi, ScHoolboy Q (of COURSE), Joey Bada$$, IamSu, ScHoolboy Q again, Smoke DZA, and Prince SAMO.

I love these two as a couple. What a festive way to celebrate two important events in their life. Mariah looks like a dream.
