Festival fashion guide

By   /   March 26, 2014  /   Comments Off

Festival fashion has become today’s hot, new summer style. Festival-goers dress from head to toe in fun, head-turning outfits. Hippie, neon, fringe, crochet, denim and bright colors – these ensembles are bursting with energy and spirit. Music festival fashion has given us a way to express our restless imaginations and creative minds. With each show comes a trend to go along with it, here’s a breakdown of the basics to get you festival-ready.

  For EDC and Spring Awakening, we keep it cool with an effortless jean-shorts-and-bandeau combo, along with fun hair pieces; you’re going to be hot from all that dancing so keep it simple! At Lollapalooza, stay fresh and breezy with a pastel maxi paired with a crop top and light denim jacket. Electric Forest calls for a playful spirit hood, fun skirt and funky shades. And for Coachella, you can’t go wrong with a laid back hippie look.

  Whatever festivals you’re headed to this summer, don’t be afraid to unleash your inner gypsy, wizard or spirit animal. Stores from H&M to Urban Outfitters to ForeverXXI offer the fashion fundamentals for festival hopping at affordable prices. Connect with your creative side by mixing and matching different trends and adding personal touches like flowers, gems, feathers and beads. The season is literally just around the corner and we couldn’t be more ready to stow away the chunky sweaters and bust out the summer festival necessities.
