Give your music festival fashion a spin while embracing your inner bohemian wild child with chic and stylish outfits. Since going to a music festival tests your endurance, your music festival outfit should be a “survival kit” for you to have enough fun and make the experience easier. It should be cool, laid back, and stylish. Keep on reading to scoop some inspiration to prep your festival fashion wardrobe.
Based in Eindhoven, The Netherlands, Jamie de Leeuw is known for her bohemian fashion style featuring hats, fringes, boots, crochet and even Aztec prints. In her blog “The Girls Behind the Camera”, she features her music festivals outfit with a touch of bohemian inspiration together with her friend Silvy de Jong.
If you’re a dressy type of girl, then opt for breezy and lightweight fabrics in a mini or maxi length. A maxi dress is a fail-safe go-to when it comes to hanging outdoors. Go for a plain hue, subdued pattern, good fit, and you can’t just go wrong with its cool-girl vibe. Like Jamie you may opt for tribal prints or even floral prints to add some interest to your style. Black leggings are great worn with short dresses or dresses with high slit to keep you covered while showing off your bohemian vibe. Also, a denim shirt dress with leather boots and hat looks western and festival-inspired.
Crop tops, sheer blouses, crochet tops, and lace crop tops are a sexy yet bohemian way of showing off your style. Also, a relaxed, loose-fitting tank is hippie-chic and it won’t end up clinging to you if temperatures rise. Whenever you feel too sexy or wild with your top, layering is the key to keep it tamed. Weather in festivals is always a wild card so have fun with your outerwear. A kimono blazer, lightweight cardigan, army jacket, crochet jacket or even a fashion sweatshirt are all great for adding some style to your looks. Or like Jamie, you may opt for a graphic tee and leggings.
Limit yourself to one piece of any features like tribal prints, fringes, neon colors, crochets, or even dark colors that will be great in the festival theme. Piling on the trends is a popular festival faux pas so just stick to one statement theme at a time. Jamie opted for tribal print pants, floral print shorts, and even maxi skirts to complement her festival outfit. If you like, denim cutoffs, colored denim shorts, and even short leather skirts are great as it’ll let you dance energetically without limiting your movements. If you’re wearing short shorts, maybe save the crop top for a day when you’re opting for overalls or boyfriend jeans.
When accessorizing, keep your headpiece to a minimum. Whether your preference is floral, feathered, or wide brimmed for a music festival, it’s often overkill. So, if you’re seeking some protection from the sun, just stick with a pair sunglasses or a wide brimmed hat. You may channel your inner-70s wild child by wearing a gypsy headband across your forehead or layering colorful bracelets that adds a pop of color to your getup. Also, leave the designer shoes at home and opt for boots or sandals made for walking. Remember that the grounds are dusty, muddy and generally pretty disgusting so if you’re wearing expensive shoes to a music festival, then there’s no way you can really relax and have fun. So, go for something that you won’t mind getting too dirty like an earth-tone hue of boots or neutral-toned sandals.
Music festival is fun especially spending outdoors listening to great music with friends. So, dress up in a stylish and functional outfit so you’ll truly enjoy the celebration of your favorite festival.
