WHAT TO WEAR: Concert

Nowadays you might as well just refer to summer as concert season. With the weather heating up and music festivals a-foot, it’s time to start looking for the perfect festival look. Whether you’re spending days in a tent at Bonnaroo or exploring the Windy City at Lollapalooza, for some, the funky festival ensembles are half the fun.

From gold metallic flash tats to flower crowns and suede fringe vests, we’ve seen trends come and go through the years that have become synonymous with the festival scene. The feel that underlies the culture of music festivals and concerts alike in the twenty-first century is obviously the boho chic look we see all over celebrities at Coachella. If you’re in the mood for some stellar tunes and a good time, fitting in at a festival is as easy as a loose off-the-shoulder top and a pair of high-waisted shorts, just like this Fashionista.

Creating the perfect festival look can simply be done with the basics: shorts and a shirt. This Fashionista kept her look young and free spirited by pairing her worn-in high-waisted denim shorts with a hip pastel purple off-the-shoulder blouse. While we all know her feet may get a little dirty from shuffling in a crowd and dancing in front of the stage, strappy sandals complete her outfit’s hippie look. Her sunglasses will keep the sun out of sight and her eyes on the stage. This classic take on the concert look this upcoming season can be dressed up with accessories like a wide-brim hat or ring-covered fingers.

Whether you’re brave and can pull off that orange floral jumpsuit like Vanessa Hudgens or are really just there for the music, staying boho chic is easily the best way to sport a the music festival look. Either way, be prepared to sing along and dance in the summer sun. Keeping cool and looking cooler is a quintessential part of any outdoor music festival.

One Simple Change: Thinking about wearing this look to an indoor event or bar-hopping on a summer night? Bring this look to the nightlife scene by simply changing from shorts to a pair of flare denim jeans to keep this look totally boho. Add some wedges and be ready to strut your stuff out on the town.
