SUMMER MUSC FESTIVAL STYLE


In my eyes, it’s not at the Milan or NYC Fashion week that you see the most self expression when it comes to fashion, it’s music festivals! It only makes sense, music fests are places to express yourself through music, why not express yourself through fashion as well? Music fests such as Warped Tour, Bonnaroo, Coachella, Bamboozle, Lollapalooza and more occur all spring and summer, and are some of the hottest places to be. The one I attend regularly is Vans Warped Tour. I always say Warped is the only place where splattering paint all over your body and having the F word on your shirt is not only accepted, but suggested.
Just walking around Warped Tour, you can see the array of different creative outfits worn by girls, and guys alike. Dressing for a music festival can be a very hard thing to do, however. You have to be dressing for these circumstances:
  • Very hot weather
  • A LOT of walking and action
  • Moshing/crowd surfing
  • … VERY HOT WEATHER!
  • Something to hold your belongings without it being a hassle

If you’re going to be going in pits, a drawstring or secure backpack works. Urban Outfiters carries very cute sensible backpacks, I spotted an inumerable amount of those. I got a cute floral one from aldo. You want your outfit to be cute, yet sensible at the same time. Don’t wear something that’s too high maintenance - you still want the focus to be on the music and fun. I wore a navy blue bodice from Urban Outfitters, Tribal Navy shorts from Urban Outfitters, and (imitation, yet cheaper) Toms from Target. Don’t mind the paint splattered all over my body here.
here’s another example of perfect cute yet sensible outfits for music festivals:
 
Adorable collared tanks, crop tops, high waisted shorts, even bandeaus and pencil skirts work. Choose whatever design and color is your favorite  - don’t be afraid to mix and match!
