It’s the most wonderful time of the year – festival season! You’ve purchased your tickets and made travel arrangements; now the only thing left to plan are those perfect outfits for three days of musical bliss. Festival fashion exploded in popularity this season, and many retailers from Free People to H&M now carry breezy, boho-inspired pieces that are ideal for a music festival.
When planning your music festival ensemble, you must take into account the heat. Most festivals are during the dog days of summer, and you’re bound to get even hotter while standing in a large crowds of people. One piece that is essential for a music festival is the crop top. This lace crop top from Nasty Gal and this printed crop top from Forever 21 are both breezy, one-of-a-kind options for that will keep you cool while you’re having fun in the sun.
For those Fashionistas who want to refrain from being overexposed, pair your crop top with a vintage-inspired, high-waisted pair of denim shorts. Rumors always has vintage cut-off shorts in stock, but for those Fashionistas looking for a brand new pair of shorts, these destroyed shorts from South Moon Under are a great way to achieve the same look.
You’ll be on your feet for most of the day at a festival, so finish off the look with a strappy pair of flat sandals. These leather congac sandals from DV by Dolce Vita are a great option for a Fashionista who wants to be stylish yet comfortable at the same time.
One Simple Change: Going out with friends after the music festival? Swap out the shorts for a pair of skinny jeans and trade in those sandals for a pair of wedges. This is a great look for a summer night out!
