There's a lot to be said about festival fashion. In the case of the Houston Press Music Awards Showcase, you have a lot of factors to consider. Will your outfit be too hot for the Houston sun? (Thank goodness the rain cooled things off.) Will your shoes hamper your ability to walk from venue to venue? And most important, will you look either badass or attractive to the other sex (and sometimes even to your own sex)?

Yesterday while roaming Downtown, we saw a lot of awesome looks on bands and HPMA crowds alike. Here are our favorites.

1. This girl was wearing a black tank top, black high-waisted jeans and black motorcycle boots, which is about as simple as it is hip. But we think it's the red hair that really makes the outfit.
