Though organizing your party group, getting tickets in time, packing all the essentials, remembering to call your mom before you go, consolidating all things related to your dog-sitter, etc. seems overwhelming enough to do in just a few days, the planning doesn't stop there. If you're going on any of the currently happening Euro music festivals – or any festival in the States, really – you need to assemble a few grand festival fashion outfits in order to look the part (the part being an awesome chick who is going to party hard and make this experience something to remember for a lifetime and a day).
Nobody is suggesting you get anxious about your outfits and let your potential “bed choices” ruin the entire trip (it's not like you are running the best-worst dressed list game), but rather keep the music festival fashion vibe alive and support it with your super chic pieces.
Here are some of the ideas to go by.
It's all about boho, and it'll always be about boho. There's rarely ever been a trend as powerful as boho (except for the LBD, obviously) that stuck around for as long as this one did. No matter what up-and-coming designers and their collections do on the world runways, boho is staying intact on its throne, all polished, laced up and uncompromisingly romantic.
With the weather being warm/hot, boho is not only the chicest fashion direction to go with, but the most comfortable one, too – especially when there's a lot of walking and dancing involved. Lace or flowy maxi or mini dresses, see-through materials, pastel and caramel combinations spruced up with a little bit of the adorable feminine fringe will make you feel like a music fest goddess.
Boho choices should be about imitating the easiness of summer through your clothing choices, so let yourself loose and enjoy the boho beauty.
NOTE: Don't forget to upgrade your outfit with (cowboy) hats, feather earrings and necklaces, a henna tattoo and a pair of awesome shades.
For all the girls who are more tomboy and less boho, unusual cuts and details of flowy tops paired up with tiny denim short shorts are the thing. If you feel like showing a little skin, opt for a cropped top with intricate details or cuts that will draw attention and match it will a bell jean or shorts.
Think custom metallic pants or golden velvet frocks if you feel like showing off or maxi printed skirts to channel your Namaste vibe. Gladiator shoes, sneakers or simple sandals will do.
NOTE: As tomboys are girls with an edge – belly, nose, septum and lip piercings (fake, why not) are a great accessory, too. Fringe is also popular with this style, so if that's what rocking your boat – go for it. Throw a leather rucksack to the mix and you're good to go.
Mermaid hair, mixing and matching of prints (hint: a stripy pant paired with a polka dots graphic shirt and a jacket that agrees with neither of the two), chokers, ripped jeans, platform sneakers, round retro-inspired shades, bombers, oversized-I-don't-care-jerseys with skinny jeans, boyfriend shirt and boots or martens, plaid-shirt-around-the-waist and vintage inspired lace dresses combos, bare shoulders and jean shorts with Canadians, an attitude that's killing it…. Get it? Sure you do. We all want to be this girl at one point of our lives and this is your chance to try it.
NOTE: The more you experiment with patterns, cuts, lengths, grunge accessorize and styles, the more hipster you'll be.
Athleisure wear vibes
Trending even during music fest season, athleisure wear will make you feel super-hot yet let you stay comfortable at the same time. You already know the drill for this one as you've probably been rocking it lately. Leggings with unusual cuts topped off with tight shirts or cropped tops, yes. Usually, athleisure wear supports the usual black leggings, but music festival fashion outfits call for something more daring. Instead of opting for a black bottom go with leggings in crazy colors and/or patterns that will speak volumes of your party spirit. Top it off with a mismatching top and an overcoat, and you'll nail the fest style!
NOTE: Rucksacks, hoop earrings, beanies and huge sunnies are your best allay.
