A huge part of college culture is music festivals. After all, Coachella, Firefly, Lollapalooza and Bonnaroo take up most of the music-craving college student’s summer. With Lolla two weeks ago and Electric Zoo still to come, we’re taking a look at the hottest festival fashion.
At music festivals we commonly see some of the best fashion. A mix between some bohemian chic and grungy fab, festival attendees go all out in their wardrobe. This Fashionista rocks the perfect festival wear. Her light, flowing shirt is perfect for the occasion and goes along with the commonly seen floral trend. Her jeans bring us forward to those fall festivals when the weather is a little chillier, but their light wash is still great for summer. Finally, this Fashionista wears what I think is the most important piece of festival attire—boots.
Who says you can’t wear boots in the summer? Boots look fabulous with a little sundress, a pair of shorts or over your jeans, as this Fashionista has done. Plus, they are vital in festival fashion, no matter the season. Most festivals take place on a grassy plane, scuffed up by several other feet, spilled drinks and lots of dirt. When dirt and any sort of liquid mix, you get mud, so prepare to get dirty! Boots are the best option for this sort of occasion because they’re easy to trek around in all day and get through the mud. As seen here, a pair of simple, mid-calf boots is a great choice. They aren’t fancy or detailed, but complement her look with a little harshness from the dark color.
Festival fashion is not at all high-end or about labels. It is unique and allows attendees to show his/her personality through their wardrobe. That’s why this post wouldn’t be complete without talking about accessories. Sunglasses are a major accessory in festival fashion. Whether you’re a rockin’ pair of aviators or a psychedelic pair of heart-shaped shades, you can block the harsh sun while looking fab and adding to your outfit. This Fashionista wears a circular frame with a blue hue that brings together her exceptional look.
Enjoy the rest of your summer by attending some of the upcoming music festivals, such as Electric Zoo and Made In America, and take risks in your festival attire.
One Simple Change: Switch out the jeans with a pair of high-wasted shorts for a little more comfort and you’re ready for a simple, cute outfit to hangout on the quad!
