With the start of spring approaching, festival season is right around the corner, and with it, festival fashion. Bohemian pieces in fun florals, paisley and pretty prints are the quintessential festival look for a free spirited vibe and casual style while boho inspired trends like cold shoulder cut-outs and embroidered details keep you cool and chic. Veronica M, known for their comfortable fabrics and fun prints, is our festival favorite brand, while Blank NYC provides essentials like the denim jacket, and fun boho pieces can be found from designers like Jetset Diaries and Rebecca Minkoff. While festivals are really all about the music, the fashion takes a firm second place since the festival grounds are the perfect place to show off your boho style. Music Festivals like Coachella on the west coast, or GovBall here in NYC are the perfect excuse to dress in breezy fun outfits that are comfortable for warm weather and dancing all day long. Bold prints and feminine florals are spring trends that will keep you looking flawless but comfortable all festival season long.
To stay chic and comfy choose lots of prints as well as pieces featuring trendy cut outs like cold shoulder and lace up details. Loose flowy fits are ideal especially in lightweight fabrics and fun colors for unpredictable weather. Festivals are when fashionistas step out in their skimpier summer layers and show off their boho style, so it’s the ideal time to get on your spring fashion game too. To build the perfect outfit you have to start with a good base: either a printed dress, floral romper, or a boho top and denim combo. Then, add in items like a light jacket, a leather bag and colorful boho jewelry to finish the look. For the purposes of a festival it is important to think about functionality and comfort of these pieces, while still keeping in mind the fashion statement you want to make, since festivals are practically the real-world runway for spring and summer fashion. You need to be able to dance with passion and walk for miles comfortably as well, rain or shine all while looking carefree and stylish.
The festival grounds is the perfect place to show off boho trends such as cold shoulder and colorful prints. We’re loving the playful prints of these cold shoulder Veronica M tops for spring, and they are flawless choices for wearing to upcoming music fests. Paired with ripped jeans, a flowy skirt or cut off shorts, this pretty floral top with bohemian details is comfy and stylish for dancing the day away. Bell sleeve details keep the look on trend, and the open neckline is just the right amount of flirty.
A simple high neck tank in a light embroidered fabric is another way to go. The boho vibes of the embroidery make this sleeveless top a perfect pick for a warm day when paired with comfy denim and sandals. With a breezy white color or a bold red version this piece just begs to be worn for spring fun. Plus, the loose flowy fit will keep you comfortable all day long.
Easy flowy dresses are another approach to a take on boho festival style, and bright fun prints and trendy details like lace up make a perfect option for a day of dancing in style. The hippy inspired paisley print in bright summery colors on this Veronica M dress will be sure to stand out from the crowd, and the lightweight fabric feels almost silky against your skin for an ultra comfortable all-day outfit.
Check out our selection of floral rompers for a comfy one piece that are so easy to wear for a day of fun. A romper is a no-fuss way to look flawless and chic. It makes for an easy outfit only requiring a few accessories to complete the look. Pretty florals are a favorite print for rompers, and work perfectly in a festival setting for a feminine yet free spirited look. Rompers, like this feminine ruffled piece by Jetset Diaries, always look great with sandals, but for more sturdy festival shoes they can even look trendy when paired with booties creating a practical and boho outfit. Rompers will keep you cool like a sundress but because of the built in shorts you don’t have to worry about skirts flying up in any slight breeze, or when you’re jumping around to your favorite song.
To top all this off, a light jacket is essential for keeping warm once the sun goes down, or dry from a spatter of rain. Our go-to for festival season is this raw edge denim jacket from denim brand Blank NYC. Comfortable and chic, a jacket like this looks just as good on as it does tied around your waist adding a touch of denim texture to your look. Raw hems have been a recent trend on denim jeans, so why not bring into the denim jacket as well? Plus a jacket like this goes with any of the outfit ideas mentioned above, making it a great closet staple.
Saddle bags are the perfect addition to a bohemian look, and Rebecca Minkoff bags have just the summery edgy look to complete your festival outfits. Fit your essentials in a pretty cognac leather saddle bag or cross body with metallic hardware details. The addition of smooth leather to your outfit adds a layer of texture and sophistication to any casual boho look. While cross body bags are a practical route to take, carrying a clutch with your look is another popular take. The colorful tassels on this pretty Rebecca Minkoff denim clutch align with popular festival fringe trends, and adds some vibrant color to your outfit. The dark denim fabric fits right in with a boho look, and the fun tassels are a festival perfect detail. Leather and denim are standard festival style fabrics that combine in this clutch for a look perfectly befitting a stylish music fest setting.
Now that you know what to wear to this year’s music events, it’s time to get to shopping all of these great spring trends!
