With the upcoming music festival season quickly approaching it is about time to start thinking about a key festival component: what are you going to wear?

Some festival outfits take planning, so this guide will give you a look into the variety and styles that are hot and trending this festival season.

The ‘70s have returned and they brought fringe along to infiltrate 2016. Fringe is a brilliant embellishment that gives you some movement and playfulness that makes your look pop. Be sure not to go too crazy with the fringe, you don’t want to look like a cowboy herding sheep (or maybe you do).

Fringe can be an enhancement for any aspect of your outfit, whether you get a fringe backpack, or a cute fringe dress, you will turn heads with the flirty sway of fringe on your outfit.

Crop tops

Crop tops are a no brainer when it comes to festival fashion. They are easy to match and super comfortable. Because they are so versatile you can pair them with practically anything including skirts, high waisted shorts, leggings, maxi skirts- like I said pretty much any bottom you can think of will look good with the right crop top.

If you are the creative type you can even make a crop top by tying a scarf! They are breathable and easy to move in so don’t worry, they won’t hinder your dancing by any means! Cold shoulder crop tops have been really popular recently so that might be a good start when you are putting together your festival outfit.


The ‘90s are coming back as well with overalls. Who would have thought that out of all the ‘90s trends that overalls would make a return? Well, anyways, long and short overalls are back, so it’s time to pull them out from the back of your closet for your next festival. Wearing them with a cute top, or even a strappy bra will make for a cute and comfortable festival look.

The accessories make the outfit, am I right? Rocking a flower crown is always a festival favorite, but there are a ton of cool accessories that will make your festival outfit standout from the rest.

Crystals do have healing powers right? But healing powers aside, they are so cute, and can 100% revamp your look. Embellishing with stones and crystals is an awesome move. You can have a statement piece with a bold crystal necklace or go with more subtle stone earrings. Either way it will complete your outfit and keep you looking and feeling good for your festival.

If you are going to be in the sun all day you will also need some shades. Accessorizing with a cute pair of sunglasses is a smart move. Some of the more modern sunglass trends include pale or pink frames, round sunglasses (bringing back the hippie vibes), and overall large sunglasses. You can pull off any look if you have the right glasses!

Lace up sandals

One thing you do not want when you are going to a festival is to be wearing uncomfortable shoes. It’s really hard to have a fun night when your feet are covered in blisters. The majority of the festival you will be on your feet either walking or dancing so shoe comfort is extremely important. Lace up sandals have really taken off recently because of their out-of-the-box style and their overall comfort, not to mention they are just flashy enough to add a little extra pizzazz to your outfit.


These are only a few fashion trends to think about when you prepare for your ultimate festival. Following these tips and trends will give you one less thing to think about so you can focus on having an awesome trip and looking good while you are at it!
