Is there any better way to spend a Saturday than hanging out at an outdoor festival, listening to good music with friends? There’s something so relaxing about a day long chill out during the summer. Although Coachella has passed, there are plenty more low-key festivals to explore. They make the perfect short-term getaway from a crazy work week in the city or a fun day trip if you’re stuck taking classes at school. And yet the eternal question remains: What do you wear outside during the summer?
This Fashionista nailed the perfect summer festival staple. I especially like that she didn’t go too over-the-top—some of the hippy-esque outfits I’ve seen can go a tad overboard. Instead, she opted for an easy printed bandage skirt. Its muted color scheme gives it a boho feel. She paired it with a cropped graphic tee. On top, she layered a breezy cardigan to pull the two base pieces together. Even in the summer, that closing layer can really make or break an outfit.
She kept it simple with short black booties, which are easy to walk in while wandering around the festival venue. Make sure to protect them first—you don’t want any mud ruining your shoe game. Accessories-wise, she kept it simple but sweet with a dainty necklace and classic shades.
One Simple Change: This outfit is great for a festival going, but it can also easily be worn during a dreaded heat wave. Ditch the cardigan and throw your hair back with a fun knot headband to keep it cool.
