Trend Spotting at this Year's Festival

DSC_1711Bold vintage shaped white framed sunnies might be the must have accessory for this spring/summer season, and stylish dudes were particularly loving this trend during SXSW. C Roy, who was performing at the fest, caught my eye on dirty 6th for his sunnies, vintage Simpsons tee, and rose embroidered sneakers. He looked fresh and fun.
