How to dress for the 4/20 high holiday. Hint: think polished boho

For the ironist: A marijuana leaf-embellished snakeskin clutch purse by Jacquie Aiche is one way to broadcast your enthusiasm for 420 without going over the top. From the Sweetleaf collection; $2,000 at https://jacquieaiche.com | Photo courtesy of Jacquie Aiche.com

Is a red, yellow and green Jamaican tie-dye T-shirt a fashion faux pas on 4/20?  Consider that most revelry will take on extra meaning in California this year, the first time the cannabis holiday takes place under legal recreational sales.  And as the industry gains legitimacy in the business world, it may be time for 420 wardrobes to mature as well.

Whether you are going out in public  (for 420 at Hippie Hill 2018 in San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park) or staying home with friends, skip the throwback hippie garb and move forward into the new era of sophistication. Here GreenState shares inspiration from four Bay Area fashionistas.

The theorist
Jacques Pantazès, a Bay Area wardrobe stylist, says our parents were fluent at cocktail attire, and now it’s up to us to set our own standards for occasions where marijuana indulgences are freely encouraged. He notes that since THC enlivens the senses it’s important to consider sensuality when dressing for such occasions. “An outfit that may very faintly itch or bind could potentially become a literal buzzkill once the party is up and running, so the comfort of garments, shoes and accessories is paramount,” he says. “Complicated closures and effects that can be tricky while you’re getting ready may ultimately become impossible once you’re there, and nobody looks right when they are overcome, stuck, annoyed or otherwise flummoxed by their attire. Simplicity, and sensual ease and comfort are your mots du jour.”

Instead of stiff, severe looks in drab colors, he pointed to languid attire in flattering colors “that’s easy to wear and feels delicious on and for others to behold.” Say no to “Summer of Love” statements and yes to photo-realistic patterns, interesting layers of transparencies and fabrics that move organically with the body, from designers such as Dries van Noten, Mary Katrantzou or Alice+ Olivia.
