White tees, blue jeans, and classic sneakers: the irresistible formula for effortless cool.
It's undeniably in. From groupies to pop stars, blinding blonde bombshell is the look this year. "B" also stands for "bolo ties," "baseball caps," "bare-shoulder dresses," and, for whatever reason, "bucket hats."
The crochet trend is literally like a time machine that you can wear. Next stop: 1969, for a music festival that puts today's to shame. "C" also stands for "crop tops," "chunky sandals," and "chokers."
Throw it in the (rough around the edges but altogether chic) bag. "D" also stands for "denim shorts," because, like, duh.
Fashion-forward and crafty, too.
So, you're either rolling your eyes or frothing right now…but flower crowns are totally a music festival staple, like it or not. But word to the wise: Go subtle and small. We can't guarantee that you won't be escorted out of the festival if your crown is large, annoying, and technicolor. "F" also stands for "fringe," "faded denim," and "frayed shorts."
Not just for Dorothy, gingham's young-and-naive vibes are best paired with a distressed denim short or some especially earthy sandals. It's called "dichotomy."
SERIOUS TREND ALERT. Everything you wear this year should have a little hippie in it, really. "H" also stands for "hefty sandals." We're talkin' big and chunky.
An ancient textile print that somehow feels totally fresh.
The riskiest fashion move at a music festival? Wearing white. Try a light jouy print instead — it'll give you that spring feeling without making you a dirt magnet.
Who says you have to dress like a complete barbarian just because you're outside in less than desirable temperatures? Add a little sophistication.
Little League Fashion
Little league fashion. Noun. A style of dress that incorporates baseball caps, T-shirts, sneakers with socks, and other tomboy trends. "L" also stands for "light jackets" because you never know.
Go big or go home.
If you're able to resist a tiny sock with a pattern on it, you need to check your pulse. Music festival fashion is all about little unique touches. Get yourself some neats. "N" also stands for "neon" and "nude" (color).
Don't question how or when these became so unstoppably chic. Just buckle up.
An interesting patch almost always leads to an interesting conversation. "P" also stands for "printed mini skirts" and "paisley." We weren't kidding about the '70s thing.
Good energy, good look.
May we also suggest "round."
We all cheer for sheer blouses.
Backpacks, boots, and safari hats.
Keep the sun away with an eccentric umbrella, and you will automatically end up in a music festival fashion photo gallery. Try it.
It's never too hot for velvet.
Southwestern patterns have been having one very long moment. Go the subtle route with a belt.
Because we dare you to think of another trend that starts with an "X." Take it to the comments, people.
Whether it's in your hair or around your neck.
