Festivals mean art and music, and by art we also mean fashion. ‘Tis the season to start digging through your wardrobe and hitting those thrift shops for those statement pieces you’ve been dying to wear. 2017 brings back some old looks and also some new ones so keep a lookout for fringe, metallic crops, mesh, and athletic wear.
Although your body may hurt a little after a few days, the memories will make it all worth it. From jam sessions that you won’t have anywhere else to escaping reality for a little bit, festivals are an experience. With so many incredible artists headlining festivals this summer, don’t expect anything but the best from all the creative people you will be surrounded by. Festivals are judge-free zones so express yourself and be comfortable. Fashion is an art form; use it and be inspired. To keep you inspired, here are a few festival tips and looks highlighting what you might see at this years festivals!

Rule #1: Show off your personality. Festivals are open environments for everyone to express themselves in a wide variety of creative forms. So, the most important and amazing thing about festival fashion is you can wear whatever you want, whenever you want. It doesn’t matter if you’re going to Lollapalooza or Warped Tour, wear what makes you happy, compliment fellow music lovers, and make friends!
Rule #2: Whether you make your outfit your own through clothing or accessories, don’t forget to keep your environment in mind! Ladies, if you plan on crowdsurfing (which I highly recommend) maybe leave the strapless crop top and body chain at home for a day. Also, do not forget to plan for the weather; from muddy dance sessions to fanning yourself with your own hair to prevent heat stroke, festivals can bring a lot of unexpected excitement. Stay hydrated, wear sunscreen, and dance away.
Rule #3: Plan, Plan, Plan!!! Even if you like going with the flow, do some research and sleep as much as possible before heading out. I promise it will be worth knowing which stage to go to, who the best artists are, and which food vendors you want to check out. Trust me, you will avoid a lot of extra walking and spend more time getting your money’s worth! Also, plan for a meeting spot if one of your friends goes MIA during all the fun and in case someone’s phone dies (portable chargers are beautiful things, just saying).
Rule #4: Be an artist. Whether you have a passion for painting people’s bodies or not, it’s part of the experience to try new things and share these experiences with the amazing people around you. Investing in some temporary tattoos or drawing tribal designs on your face/body goes a long way when making friends at festivals. Stay open-minded, safe, and HAVE FUN!
