Festival Fever - The Ultimate Guide to Festival Style
Just in case you’ve been totally MIA, Coachella took place over the last two weekends. The occurrence of Coachella means one thing and one thing only, festival season is FINALLY here. Like everyone else on the planet we’re suffering from major festival fever. Osheaga, Chasing Summer and North by Northeast are just a few of the many great music festivals this summer and it’s essential to make sure that you show up in festival style. So, here’s the ultimate guide to festival style - all the boxes you need to check to ensure you’re festi-ready.
The first thing on your list of festival style essentials has to be denim. A great pair of jean shorts or a killer denim skirt or jacket are something every cool girl needs in her festival wardrobe. If you’re feeling particularly daring why not follow in Romee Strijd’s footsteps and rock some double denim?
Crochet all day! You simply can’t have a festival without a little (or a lot of) crochet. You can really tailor this trend to your own preferences with a little sleeve detail, an all over crochet tank top and everything in between. Oh, and if we didn’t already love it enough, if Gigi Hadid is rocking it, it’s a festival essential by default.
When it comes to Summer festivals you just can’t go wrong with a bohemian inspired print. When it comes to prints you’re spoilt for choice with so many great options to choose from. Whether you opt for a statement piece or print all-over á la Vanessa Hudgens, your festival style will be right on point.
When it comes to festival style, a little attention to detail goes a long way. Taking the simplest colour or silhouette and adding a little floral embroidery or a cute tasseled trim can really take your outfit from 0 to 100. Negin Mirsalehi, the ultimate style queen shows us how it’s done.
Festi-style doesn’t necessarily have to mean short or mini. A maxi skirt or dress is perfect for the summer heat and effortlessly stylish. If you’re looking for something that’s practical AND looks great, the maxi romper is your new best friend. Plus, if maxi is good enough for Victoria Secret Angel Jasmine Tookes, it’s good enough for us, too!
With the right accessories on your side, any outfit can be festival-ready in seconds. You can take something simple that you already have in your closet and add a little bling here, a hat there and voila, instant festival chic. As shown by Olivia Culpo, a simple dress paired with great accessories is the perfect outfit for any summer festival.
Festival style doesn’t have to be difficult, really it’s just a simple mix of denim, crochet and a few great accessories. So tell us, now that Spring is here, how will you cure the festival fever this year?
