It doesn’t matter which music festival you’re traveling to – the level of excitement is the same! So whether it’s the Zero Rock festival or the multiple Weekenders throughout the country, you’re already freaking out about booking tickets and convincing your friends to come on this trip that you’re sure is going to change their life. The last thing you need is to stress over your outfits amidst an already long list of worries. So leave the outfits and style decoding to us and go have fun – we’ve got you sorted!
When it comes to dressing for music festivals, there are a number of things you have to keep in mind – keep it easy and comfortable. You never know how many hours you have to spend in the same outfit, so make sure you feel good in whatever you’re wearing. You’ll have to dance in cramped spaces, so make sure you’re not wearing things that can be stepped upon or that you can trip on. And most importantly, remember to have fun, because that’s what you’re there for!
1 . Jumpsuits
The best part about jumpsuits is that they’re two items of clothing in one. They’re super comfortable, easy to carry and nothing elaborate. You could go for either a basic or a printed one, and they come in all sorts of necklines and sleeve lengths.
When you’re wearing a jumpsuit, make sure you’re wearing one with the right fit. If it’s too tight, it might give off a Catwoman vibe and if it’s too loose, you’ll end up losing your shape completely. If you need to carry things around, try picking one with pockets; they’re not that hard to find. Pair them with a basic denim jacket and you’re all set to rock the festival!
WM Tip: Try avoiding heels, no matter what you’re wearing because you’ll have to endure long hours AND dancing. That, paired with heels, is not a good combination.
2 . Leather Jackets
It’s hard to imagine a music festival without the image of leather jackets popping up in your head. You could go for the classic tan brown or black option, or even go brave in the bold colors available this season. Burgundy seems to be a new hit, and with good reason! Pair your leather jacket with military boots and you’ll definitely be the coolest sight to see. When it comes to this look, minimal is key. You shouldn’t over-accessorize and this is an especially good tip when it comes to music festivals, because keeping it simple is the best look possible.
WM Tip: A leather jacket with beanie? Yes, please! If you’re looking for an outfit that’s simple and yet packs a punch, this is the one for you.
3 . Shorts
The best part about shorts is that you can wear them up or down, depending on the look you’re going for. So if you want something that says chilled, you can wear denim cut-offs with a plain white crop top and printed kimono. Or if you want something more upbeat, you could choose a pair of printed shorts and pair it with a tank top and jacket.
WM Tip: Try and be careful about the length of your shorts because you don’t want to be feeling self-conscious throughout the night. Mid-thigh is usually the most preferred length.
4 . Full length shrugs
These can change the vibe of any outfit! A really chic look would be to pair a long white high-low jacket over a black tank top with denims and ankle length boots. Another great option would be to pair a long length printed kimono with shorts and a tank top. Regardless of how you choose to wear them, they’re a really handy clothing option to keep around.
WM tip: Avoid strapless tops as a clothing outfit because you don’t want to spend the entire night trying to pull your top up. It’s not only uncomfortable, but also acts as a party-pooper.
5 . Ponchos
These are definitely the new rage. You can find them in a variety of options, and you can choose the best one according to the look you want to go for. They’re great to be paired with leather pants (if you’re feeling brave) or even ripped denims. Go for a basic color if you want to ease into the poncho-world slowly or go all guns blazing with a printed one that’s sure to grab attention. Either way, this is one option that you’re sure to love!
WM Tip: Ponchos aren’t exactly know for their feminine silhouettes but you can change that by simply adding a belt – say hello to an instant hourglass figure!
