As summer begins to wind down, we all need to embrace these last days of sun, beach, no homework and the chance to see our favorite bands play at awesome outdoor venues. Festival fashion has become über popular in the past few years, whether it is for Coachella in California, Lollapalooza in Chicago or just your local groups jamming out in your hometown. While there are countless combinations you can throw together to look rad at the upcoming concerts, this Fashionista definitely channelled her inner flower child and rocked the festival look.
The three key items in the festival formula are: high-waisted shorts, crop top and headband. This Fashionista opted for Levi’s classic dark wash shorts and a solid black bandeau. These choices allow her to add several separates that show off her personal style. For the headband, many retailers and designers are creating chic and fun wrap-around headbands that are perfect for these events. This Fashionista’s is tie-dye, so why not have a little fun with the accessory and make it into a DIY activity? Just grab some solid white fabric, a pair of scissors and a few colored dyes and you can make a cool hair accessory without having to break your bank account.
My personal favorite part about her look is the cream silk kimono. It’s a great piece that can be worn for various occasions from hippie music festivals to a night out with the girls. It can be thrown over just about anything from jeans to a bodycon dress to a flowy skirt, and makes for a cohesive ensemble.
The trickiest parts about festival fashion are the footwear and the bag. Go for either your most comfortable pair of gladiator sandals like this Fashionista did or a cute pair of sneakers. Her brown leather backpack is the ultimate festival accessory, since there’s plenty of room to hold all of your belongings and it is low-maintenance enough for you to comfortably bounce around to your favorite songs.
