I’ve always said I’d go to festivals simply for the outfit opportunities. There’s something so fun about festival fashion—it’s an excuse to dress as wild as you’d like. Festivals are one of the few places you can wear a sequin bra and cowboy hat without anyone looking at you twice. They’re a chance to get out of your comfort zone and wear something you wouldn’t normally wear in your everyday life.
When it comes to festival fashion, there are so many different routes you can go. There’s the Western aesthetic, which is always a favorite for those attending the country festival Stagecoach. There’s the futuristic alien-chic aesthetic favored by those seeing Kygo at Project Glow. And, of course, there’s the fashion crowd’s attempt at music-industry cool that’s traditionally seen at Coachella.
With festival season in full swing, I figured I’d do a little shopping for items that would be easy to style and guaranteed crowd-pleasers. After scrolling through Nordstrom, Shopbop, and Urban Outfitters, I found so many great things I regret not getting a ticket for Coachella this year. But just because I’m missing out doesn’t mean I can’t share all the chic festival-ready pieces I was absolutely drooling over with you.
