Are you ready for festival season?

Music festivals and concerts are an incredible way to let loose, have fun, dress cute, and listen to some of your favorite music live. But creating a look that is both stylish and comfortable can be challenging, and that's why we're here to help. Whether you’re hitting up Coachella or Stagecoach, or you're just going to a local concert in town, here’s what you need to know about finding the perfect outfit for your next music festival or concert.

Pick the Right Pieces

The key to nailing the perfect festival look is to pick pieces that you love wearing. If you’re going for a more boho-chic vibe, select items like denim shorts, statement jewelry pieces, flowy tops and dresses that have floral prints and bell sleeves, maxi skirts, and wide brim western hats. For an edgier look, opt for a graphic tee with your favorite band on the front paired with leather bottoms and funky sunglasses. And for a classic rock n’ roll aesthetic try out fitted jeans with ankle boots and a moto faux leather jacket. When it comes to shoes make sure you choose something comfortable as you will likely be standing or walking around all day. Sneakers, sandals or cowboy boots are all great options here!

Accessorize Your Look

Accessories are essential when putting together any outfit, but especially when it comes to music festivals or concerts. They complete the look and add extra flair (and protection from the sun!)—without having to buy too many items of clothing! A few must-have accessories include hats (cowgirl hats and wide brim nylon hats are always popular), sunglasses, backpacks/bags (to hold your phone/wallet/etc.), body jewelry (think chokers and anklets!), statement necklaces/earrings/bracelets, lightweight sweaters (for chilly nights), fanny packs – whatever speaks to your style!


Mix & Match Items You Already Own

Want to recycle and use the clothes that are already lying around on your floor or closet? Let's do it! Use those pieces as a starting point when thinking about what outfits you can create for your upcoming event. Think outside the box when styling them! Switch up the statement jacket you wore last time with that dress, and shop for a newer shacket or lightweight jacket to layer on top instead. You can wear it to the event now, and later you can pair it with other dresses, skirts or your favorite pair of jeans you already own for a date night later the following week. Once you have an idea of what pieces work best together then start shopping for items that will help pull everything together. Don’t forget that accessories can make all the difference in creating different looks with what you already own!

Conclusion: Whether it's EDC Las Vegas, Lollapalooza or Hangout Music Festival - there's always something special about attending music festivals and concerts. With these tips in mind, finding the perfect outfit doesn't have to be difficult - it should actually be fun! Remember that comfort is key; pick items that fit your personal style but also keep in mind how long you're going to be on your feet dancing away at your favorite show! With these ideas in mind all that's left is for you enjoy yourself - fashionably!
