Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

When it comes to fashion, some people stick to classic black and white, while others crave color. At the 25th Westword Music Showcase on June 29, we spotted Los Angeles native Joselyn Gomez, a preschool teacher who now calls Denver home, rocking pretty pastel tie-dye.

We stopped to chat with Gomez about headliner Jai Wolf, what inspired her vibrant look, and more.

Probably a ring. I like opals.

What is your favorite color?

In between indigo and aquamarine. One of those two.

What is your style mantra?

Life is too short to not be colorful. I thrive off the positive energy that I receive from my friends, because they inspire me.

Where do you shop?

Dolls Kill and i Heart Raves, which are both online shops, and I also love a good thrift store.

Like Gomez, never be afraid to let your colorful and creative personality be reflected in your fashion, Denver.
