Festival Fashion

May 23, 2015


The ultimate festival fashion moment happened during the ultimate festival, Woodstock. It was the era of hippies and hip-huggers, bell-bottoms, fringe, sandals, and bikinis were all the rage. Everywhere you turned at the 2015 Coachella festival you saw clothing reminiscent of the 60’s. Only this time the price tags were much higher and the kids prefer the term boho chic. When attending a festival, your best bet is to go for comfort and something that is weather appropriate. Luckily, in today’s fashion world you can still be comfortable and look stylish.

It is the festival season, and some of the best and biggest such as Bonnaroo, Lollapalooza, Firefly and more are right around the corner. Festival fashion means big business. Style trends are often first seen at a music festival. The basic rule of festival fashion is No Rules.

Each festival has its own look especially if the festival is strictly a specific genre. If it’s Hip Hop, expect the low-riding pants and t’s, hoodies and kick ass footwear from the fella’s.The girls will be sporting high-waisted Daisy Dukes, with leggings, crop tops, trucker hats and designer sneakers. As for the electronic music genre, expect crazy colorful fashion. You may run into a Power-Puff girl or Bratz doll look-a-like at any turn. Neon, denim, bikini tops, are everywhere. There seems to be a large number of Hello Kitty! EDM fans in the world,

Some of the fashion looks hot off the grassy festival runways are fringed jackets and silk kimono’s for women. Army green is all the rage as well as gladiator sandals. Large necklaces make quite the statement piece. Everywhere you look you’ll find a variety of hair colors; pink, blue, green and the most popular as of this hour, gray. Clashing your layered look is key at festivals. Pair some edgy high tops with a fringed vest or maxi dress. Mixing it up is all the rage, but so is matchy, matchy. As mentioned previously, there are no rules when it comes to Festival Fashion.

Attending a music festival will probably be one of the most memorable experiences you will ever have. Many incredible music moments have happened at music festivals and you could very well be there as a witness. Jimmy Hendrix playing the star spangled banner; The Red Hot Chili Peppers performing in socks…and that is one sock each I mean; Everything that happened at Live Aid. It’s a magical experience and the music is the first and foremost reason you should be there, so make sure you’re comfortable because all you will remember about the festival is how badly your feet hurt if you forgo comfort for style.
