This weekend marked the third annual Re:Make festival, a celebration of all things creative, hosted by yours truly, Brit + Co. Naturally, we were enamored with those celebs, makers and attendees who embodied the spirit of the two-day bash by showing up in insanely creative outfits (we鈥檒l take this opportunity to name drop: MTV鈥檚 Todrick Hall and Ban.do鈥檚 Jen Gotch slayed). We couldn鈥檛 help but want to share their seriously head-turning looks 鈥 think: bold accessories, clever layering and tons of color 鈥 so, we asked them to strike a pose and give us their best tips to putting together a statement-making outfit. Read on to see the most inspiring street style photos you鈥檒l see all week that aren鈥檛聽from NYFW.


1.聽Courtney Pilgrim, MyFriendCourt: 鈥淚 wear a lot of black and white and then I wear colorful tights or fun bags or a statement something 鈥 a scarf, a hat. That鈥檚 how I mix it up.鈥


2.聽Danielle Scott: 鈥淚t鈥檚 all about the energy that I have that day. If I鈥檓 feeling some type of way, I鈥檓 going to feel that through my clothes.聽I鈥檓 feeling a little lofty today.鈥


3.聽Jen Gotch, Founder + CCO, 鈥淢y everyday and my creative outfits are the same outfits. I try and figure out how can I get a compliment today on my outfit 鈥斅爄t鈥檚 an easy thing to do, if you just wear some pattern, a graphic tee, pins or bright lipstick. Mine is NARS Schaip 鈥 it鈥檚 like a chaparral pink, a bright pink times 10.鈥

4. Jordan Ferney, Oh Happy Day: 鈥淚 dress creatively when I think about it. I want it to be comfortable and I want it to be flattering on my body 鈥斅燼nd I put on red lipstick when I want to be creative. It makes a big difference. I wear a few different reds 鈥 today it鈥檚 NARS Heatwave.鈥


5. Lisa Raphael, Editorial Director, Brit + Co: 鈥淧atterns, colors, statement pieces! I like to do a mix of fun pieces that I know that people will have questions about and be like, 鈥楾hat鈥檚 awesome, Where did it come from?!鈥 I like to wear pieces that tell a story, like these pants聽that I found聽in a shop tucked away in LA鈥檚 Abbot Kinney neighborhood,聽made by makers聽in Uganda.鈥


6. Jennifer Moyers: 鈥淪tay warm, stay comfortable, but wear what you want. These pants were very comfortable. I just throw them on 鈥 they鈥檙e my brunch pants. My beanie, I threw on from my friend鈥檚 car. I like the way it looks and it keeps my ears warm.鈥


7.聽Todrick Hall, Social Media Influencer: 鈥淚 come from a Broadway background. I would say that owning the outfit is more important than putting together a cohesive outfit. If you feel confident in it and you exude personality and confidence with everything you do, then people around you will buy it. Oftentimes, my idea of fashion is very different from the people around me and my friends. *I* don鈥檛 go anywhere without a ridiculous backpack because I collect cool backpacks. People always tag me on social media with bags and they鈥檙e like 鈥極h, Toddy Rockstar could pull this off,鈥 then I go find it and usually get it. The one I have today is a Jeremy Scott original, a huge glove that I wear over my shoulder.鈥


8. Bonnie McKee, Singer/Songwriter: 鈥淒epends on what your vibe is. But you gotta have a little bit of sparkle, you gotta show a little skin,聽in my opinion, and change it up 鈥 do something a little different every time.鈥


9. Iris Lin, Product Designer: 鈥淚t鈥檚 about collecting quality pieces that stand out and will also last a couple of years 鈥 nothing that follows seasonal trends, because those are really temporary anyway. Also, when I was younger, I only wore dark clothes, and wearing colors is really freeing. Black will only ever say one thing about you, and color, patterns and prints let you express yourself a lot more.鈥


10. Randi Cross, PapiDrinksWine: 鈥淛ust go with what you like wearing. When you wake up, put it on.鈥

11. JaEvon Marshall, Scratch Workshops: 鈥淚t鈥檚 good to keep the weather in mind when you鈥檙e dressing. Also, like Chanel said, you should always take off your last accessory, then just go with it.鈥


12. Taylor聽Reid, Western聽Editions: 鈥淵ou can鈥檛 go wrong with denim.鈥


13. Chanel Cartier: 鈥淔or me, I really like to add a lot of metal to my outfits. If I鈥檓 feeling lazy and just put on a t-shirt, as long as I put on a couple of necklaces, I feel put together. I also like to add pins that reflect my cat-lover nature.鈥


14. Brittany Veal: 鈥淚 like to just go with how I鈥檓 feeling that day. If you wake up and see that it鈥檚 a nice, sunny day, you should dress accordingly. If it鈥檚 not, you gotta dress in more neutral tones. Today I was feeling pretty good, really relaxed, and to me, it鈥檚 still summer, so I had to wear this hat.鈥
