There are many things to love about festival season, but a huge part of the fun is in the lead-up when planning your outfit. Whether you just want that pure fire Instagram photo or you want to be the belle of the (festival) ball, it’s up to you.
With so many options, choosing what to wear and making sure you’ve got everything you need is harder than it sounds! Good thing we’ve got you completely covered with the ultimate festival outfit guide to rock your way through all the festivals this season.
1. Flare pants
This year we saw the return of the vintage 70s vibe and there is no better occasion to try something a little more daring than a festival. Not only will you be able to boogie to your heart’s content but you’ll be able to do it comfortably. In my books, that gets a massive tick.
Style the look: Pair these pants with a super cute crop top or bodysuit. You want the pants to be the main event of this look so don’t over-do you’re other items.
2. The crop top
I love a little crop top and so do festivals. Whether you want to just wear a simple black crop or go all out in some bling, it’s completely up to you! The best part is, they’re super comfortable and you’re not going to get too hot in the mosh pit when wearing one.
Style the look: You can never go wrong with a cute crop and practically anything high wasted. Whether its a matching skirt or pair of shorts, this outfit is always a crowd pleaser.
3. Vintage shorts
Sometimes less is more, and can you really ever go wrong with a good ol’ pair of denim shorts? It’s probably the most commonly worn piece at festivals, but it’s popular for a reason. It just works.
If you’re worried about looking a bit too plain, this is where you can dress it up with your accessories!
Style the look: Simple yet effective. Pair your shorts with a fun bodysuit, bralette or band tee.. the world is your oyster!
4. The boho-inspired dress
Whether you’re not a fan of the grunge look or you just like to embrace your inner gypsy princess, these maxi dresses are for you. Not only would you be incredibly comfortable and easy breezy all day, but boy oh boy you’ll look good too!
Style the look: Paired with some funky boots and a cool hat, you can do no wrong.
5. The matching set
These I like. Matching sets are a little bit like a playsuit without the hassle. I mean, do you really want to get your whole kit off in one of those public portable bathrooms? Me neither.
Style the look: Get yourself a funky two-piece; whether it’s shorts, pants or a skirt with a matching top, you’ve got options and the world is your oyster!
Potentially my favourite festival trend out there is fringe. I mean, where else are you allowed to look like a rooting tooting cowboy and completely own it? Plus, you’re not limited to just jackets but there are skirts, bags and so much more!
Timeless, classic and oh so festival. Leather is one item you can expect to never stop seeing at festivals for one important reason. It works.
