Festival Fashion Must Haves!

Clashing prints, maxis, cropped tops, John Lennon sunnies, wide brim hats, and cross-body bags in the sun can only mean one thing! Hello Festival Season! The festival that started it all was Woodstock of '69 but now you can find a music festival no matter what part of the world you reside in. Almost every leading retailer has a festival fashion segment on their homepages and high fashion designers such as Dsquared have created a collection inspired by festival fashion. It is time to channel your down-to-earth, inner hippie, and frolic around the grass fields to your favorite music.

The Bralette 

Style these midriff majors with a maxi skirt, soft wide leg pants, or the obvious...denim cut-offs. If you are not about revealing your midriff which many of us are not—style yourself in a phrased graphic tee such as this or this

Polka Dot: WetSeal, Floral Ruffel: Forever 21, Fringe: Rare London, Tropical: ASTR, Black/White Button: TOPSHOP 







The Maxi

If you are stuck in a style crisis the morning of your festival—wear a maxi! A maxi skirt, and especially a maxi dress, is the easiest and most comfortable way to get dressed. The skirt is a 2 step process and slipping into a maxi dress will take you no longer then 5 seconds to be dressed.

The Shades

Of course rounded lenses are the festival signature but anything goes...and we mean ANYTHING. From shapes to color or if you dare to funk yourself up with a pair of embellished floral sunnies—take your pick. There is no wrong way to turn when it comes to choosing your sunglasses for festival season.

The Footwear

We say if you're up for it, a high leveled gladiator sandal is the way- but if you are looking to walk on the safe side any ankle strap flat sandal will do. Combat boots are amongst the most popular shoe for a festival but you will stand out if you decide on a floral style version or even a distressed color (such as the blue). Our must have is this fringe mint sneaker wedge.

Floral Combat Boots: Amazon, Black Wrap Gladiators: Fabio Rusconi, Cream and White High Gladiators: Stuart Weitzman, Gladiator Wedge: J.Crew, Fringe Trainer: Giuseppe Zanotti, Distressed Blue Combats: Steve Madden




If these pieces do not inspire your festival wear just search "Vanessa Hudgens at Coachella" and you will get the idea.
