Festival season is upon us, which means some of the best looks will be on parade. But, before heading outdoors, be prepared for in-the-moment style emergency with our 5 fashion hacks that will save your day.
- Select the stylish yet comfortable footwear.
The right footwear is crucial since you’ll likely stand all day in the music festivals with a not-so-friendly ground. As cute as those sky-high stilettos and classic pumps are, they just aren’t practical so reach for a pair of chunky boots, combat boots, platform sandals, low-heeled wedges, or even sneakers to keep you comfortable yet stylish. Leather ankle booties can be a great way to protect your feet while looking fashionable on the dance floor.
- Arm with trendy and functional accessories.
Leave your signature pieces at home, and opt for festival-inspired accessories with a stylish and functional purpose. For instance, a bandana can hold your hair down, cover your face when the dust kicks up, add some flair to your bag handle, add some cover around your neck, or add some polish to your shapeless outfit. Mercury sunglasses and fedora hats are festive enough perfect for the occasion while giving you some cover from the sun. Also, mini backpacks are seriously in style, and they’ll keep your arms free for important things like dancing while keeping the necessities.
- Channel the carefree vibe with lightweight and free-flowing ensembles.
Music festivals are all about having fun with a great music and carefree vibe so leave your high-maintenance outfits at home. Peasant tops, cut out dress, bohemian dress, tribal print shorts, bell-sleeved tops, crop tops, crochet tops, frayed shorts, cropped chambray, lace shorts, and such are perfect for giving you some carefree and wild vibe on festivals.
- Rock a knot for a stylish and functional style.
Festivals can be down and literally dirty, from dusty deserts to grassy fields. So, if you’re heading out wearing a floor-length maxi, a stylish knot will save the day which will keep your hem clean and make walks between stages easier without that extra fabric to worry about. Also, knotting and cropping your graphic tops, plain tees, plaid shirts, and chambrays can be great to add some effortless and carefree look to your style.
- Add more layers.
Be ready for anything with a flannel shirt, denim jacket, lightweight vest, or kimono. If you wish to go hands-free, simply tie your layer around your waist or over your shoulders while you sway to the music, and throw it on when the sun goes down. A lightweight kimono will add some cover to you on daytime when it’s too hot outside and on the night time when it gets cooler.
