Two.One.Five was on a mission this year. Naturally, it wasn't hard to find good people and good music at this past weekend's 5th Annual Roots Picnic, but as far as Style goes, it was certainly a toss-up. With a temperamental forecast calling for both rain and shine, we couldn't help but to wonder if the loyal crowds from near and far would opt more for functionality or simply fun.

Yet weather or not, with such an exciting lineup over the inaugural two-day festival, glammed-up goers showed that this hometown throwdown can be black-tie, shirts optional (see clowns, below). From Rakim's old school get up to crisp, pin-striped jackets, check out Two.One.Five's roundup of Sunday's Best from the Roots Picnic. 


Comment below if you made the gallery! If we didn't catch you this time, keep an eye out for Two.One.Five's Style team throughout the city for more weekly roundups on Philly's personal style.
