Dust off your raver gear from Ultra. Or, ya know, don't. This weekend III Points will be taking over Wynwood, and with ultra cool, non-mainstream acts like Duke Dumont, Jamie XX and Jamie Jones taking the main stage, this festival merits anything but neon and flower crowns. No one understands Wynwood cool like the boutiques that lie within, which is why we asked a few of them to style their perfect festival look for III Points. Alessandra Gold Concept Store, Fox House, and urban menswear store Xclusive Dreams took on the challenge, each creating their own unique look from jellybean suits to snapbacks. Click through for some seriously edgy festival style inspiration, and let us know your favorite in the comments section below.
