Though the sun decided not to come out, Friday marked the first day of New York City鈥榮 biggest music festival, Governors Ball, AKA聽Coachella鈥榮 edgier, more urban East Coast cousin. Brit + Co was on the ground in NYC to scope out all the best street style 鈥 and we have to say, revelers most definitely brought it,聽rain or shine! Check out some of the聽best trends聽we spotted from the street聽style we encountered聽below.

1. Chokers: While there may be fewer flower crowns at Govs Ball than you鈥檙e likely to see at other fests, chokers definitely made the crossover 鈥 they were everywhere this year. This party-goer rocked a throwback tattoo version聽while keeping聽the rest of her getup comfy + casual with a baseball cap, high-waisted jeans and a simple tee.

2. Fringe Kimonos:聽The temperature never broke 65 degrees Fahrenheit, which made for perfect conditions to don summer鈥檚 hottest, Chrissy Teigen-approved outwear聽聽鈥斅燼 lightweight kimono. Bonus? It聽could even double as a poncho for the rain!

3.聽Statement Necklaces:聽This festival attendee kept things simple with some hightop kicks, jeans and a cold shoulder top in summer鈥檚 hottest hue, leaving it to聽her statement collar necklace to really steal the聽show.

4.聽Overalls + Rain Boots: Hey, when the weather hands you lemons, you make fashion lemonade! This woman鈥檚 bright red boots quickly became the focal point of聽her entire聽outfit 鈥 second only to that giant grin, of course.

5.聽Beanies for Summer:聽Who says beanies聽are only for winter? This gal paired one聽up with an overall dress + silver boots 鈥 and looked cool doing it.

6.聽Lace-Up Sandals:聽Though there was rain, there wasn鈥檛 too much mud 鈥 a lucky thing for the likes of聽these stunning lace-up sandals! We also love this hot shoe-owners鈥櫬燼ll-black ensemble and聽silver bib necklace.

7. Crushed Velvet Is Back:聽The 鈥90s were alive and well聽at this year鈥檚 Governors Ball, and while this attendee鈥檚 bell-sleeved OTS top is super eye-catching, it鈥檚 the crushed velvet skirt that really had us swooning. Anyone else catching Blake Lively, errr,聽Esmeralda vibes?

8.聽Army Jackets:聽Here鈥檚 another聽Govs Ball-goer sporting rain boots (sensing a trend here?), but this woman聽makes them military chic with the addition of an army green cargo jacket 鈥 the perfect choice聽for gloomy spring weather. Also of note, check out聽her聽statement necklace, which most definitely reads 鈥淏eckham.鈥

9.聽Iridescent Rain Gear:聽If it鈥檚 going to rain anyway, you might as well make the most of聽it, right? This iridescent raincoat is so cool, it kinda鈥 makes us wish it would rain every day, just so we could wear it. Keeping things coordinated, this fest-goer鈥檚聽denim skirt is iridescent, as well: Girl clearly likes her sheen.

10.聽Black Crochet: The crochet look was a huge hit at Coachella and other music festivals, and that was also the case at Govs Ball. Instead of the been-there-done-that聽white, however, it was black crochet that served as a聽surprisingly cool alternative.

11.聽Bodysuit + Pins: It鈥檚 official聽鈥斅bodysuits, in all their varying forms, are still the hottest trend of 2016. Customize yours with pins for a personal touch, like this festival attendee, who also paired hers with boxer braids, Adidas Superstars and some classic denim shorts.

12. Black + White: Not every outfit has to be all about color: This outfit keeps the palette neutral in all black and white, letting the聽patterns do all the talking. Those聽laced-up rain boots also caught our eye with their unique feel.

13. Bold Lips + Bright Accessories:聽Everything about this outfit is a win 鈥 from the combat boots (all the rage at Governors Ball) to the geometric skirt, right down to the boldly colored lipstick + bright jewelry. Little details like these are an聽awesome way to add a pop of color to your OOTD.

govs-ball-street-style-16

14.聽Cutouts + Lace: Yet another聽huge trend at Govs Ball this year? Cutouts + lace. This lace crop top is pitch perfect for summer, while the discreet triangle cutouts of these frayed white聽shorts offer up a super subtle way to pull off the craze.

govs-ball-street-style-19

15.聽Varsity聽Cardigan + Platform Sandals:聽This getup聽is pretty much the embodiment of preppy chic 鈥 plus, what鈥檚 more summery than white pants? This woman鈥檚 patent leather flatform sandals add just enough edge to her聽otherwise totally classic聽outfit.

govs-ball-street-style-8

16.聽All Black Everything:聽Don鈥檛 be afraid to go聽summer goth and sport all-black at a festival like this party-goer did. We can鈥檛 say it鈥檚 an entirely surprising choice: This is NYC we鈥檙e talking about, after all! We鈥檙e digging her聽on-trend sheer聽kimono, knitted crop top and 鈥90s charm necklace.

govs-ball-street-style-20

17. Sweatshirt + Distressed Shorts:聽Adidas certainly got a lot of love at the festival this year 鈥 just check out聽this woman鈥檚 oversized Japanese sweatshirt emblazoned with the company鈥檚 throwback logo! Who鈥檇 have thunk that a sweatshirt would make such聽awesome fest wear?

govs-ball-street-style-24

18.聽Brightly Colored Dresses:聽Pair your old Doc Martens with a brightly colored dress to lift your spirits on even the dreariest of days. The sterling silver + turquoise bib necklace is also a nice touch.

govs-ball-street-style-18

19. Culottes + Floral Headbands:聽Another orange enthusiast, this music-lover rocked culottes with a simple striped tube top, making for one truly head-turning getup.

govs-ball-street-style-22

20.聽Patterned Maxis + Fun Shades:聽When in doubt, pull the maxi dress out: There鈥檚 no easier way to appear聽totally pulled together than with this聽trusty standby!聽This one certainly was a scene stealer with its bold patterns, and we loved how this gal accessorized her look with some reflective cat-eye shades and maroon lippies.

govs-ball-street-style-23

21.聽Suede Two-Piece: Proving two-pieces are聽still the way to go this festival season,聽this attendee donned a suede version that聽brought the heat despite the drizzle. Her tattoo choker + French braids really topped off her look.

govs-ball-street-style-25

22. Halter Tops:聽Sometimes, keeping things low-key really is the way to go. This woman clearly gets it in her聽understated cropped halter top, blue jeans and black ankle booties. The flashiest thing about her outfit? That badass leather lariat necklace. So chic!

govs-ball-street-style-26

23. Wacky Prints:聽Casual doesn鈥檛 have to mean boring 鈥斅爅ust take it from this fest-dweller.聽Her聽canvas smiley face sneakers and pineapple printed snapback were a YAAAAS!

govs-ball-street-style-27

24.聽Pigtails + Pink Leather Jacket:聽If you thought you were too old for pigtails, think again! This whole look was super fun from head to toe with聽a Pink Ladies-style leather jacket (customized with button pins no less), a crop top and lace-up black shorts.

govs-ball-street-style-28

25. Fringe + Florals:聽This stylish attendee mixed nice and聽naughty in a聽floral crop top, nylon pants and some oh-so-cool shades. The best part, though, was her killer聽fringe cardigan, giving the overall effect of total BADASS.

govs-ball-street-style-1

26. Denim-on-Denim: Whileboth denim skirts and denim jackets are closet staples, there鈥檚 some that may say the two don鈥檛 mix. This woman single-handedly proves the naysayers wrong, adding a ringer tee for contrast. After all, rules were made to be broken, right? (Btdubs, heart those heart sunnies!)
