Festivals are great events for listening to great music and stuffing your fast with tasty calorie filled snacks (you’ll have such a good time that you won’t be counting). There’s no need to bring out your fanciest ball gown, as festivals generally are a laid back type of environment. Festivals are the perfect time to go full on carefree boho chic or sporty casual.
To achieve the boho chic and carefree look, flowy silhouettes and light fabrics are perfect. Feel free to explore and play with mix-matching patterns to get that “effortless” feel. A cute pair of sandals will really take the overall look exactly where it needs to go. With this type of outfit, you can let your hair be free and wild! Vanessa Hudgens’ Coachella appearance over the past few years are the perfect inspiration for the “I’m cute and carefree” attitude that you want your outfit to give off. If you want boho festival looks without breaking the bank, Forever 21 is perfect. Forever 21 really knows how to keep the perfect festival clothing on their shelves.
If you’re not a fan of the cutesy girl looks, casual clothes may be the way to go for you. Finally an excuse to wear baggy tees and jeans. Since a lot of festivals take place during warmer months, you can skip the jeans and get a pair of shorts. Or if you’re crafty, take an old pair of jeans and make a custom pair of shorts for yourself. Tilly’s is perfect for finding clothes that fit this aesthetic. They have an endless supply of cool tee shirts and of course a casual staple: plaid. If you want a more feminine look while wearing a baggy top, consider cropping it. Kendall Jenner is the queen of casual festival clothing. Just take a look at Kendall’s Coachella fits over the years.
Coachella’s 2018 headliner, Beyoncé Knowles, didn’t just teach us how to put on a show, but she taught us that we can definitely be glam at festivals too. So, if you’re a girly girl who wants to wear sequins, pearls and platforms, you can! Pretty Little Thing has the cutest clothing for those of us who want a glam look.
For the men reading this, or for people with boyfriend’s that get dressed in the dark, we have some tips for you as well. The most budget friendly Coachella outfit for males is the classic Hawaiian shirt and jeans or shorts. Luckily for your wallet you can thrift this entire outfit and save tons of money (you can also find Hawaiian shirts in the dad’s clothing section of Walmart). If you’re only going to wear a plain t-shirt consider sprucing it up with a bandana or a hat! If you want to go for the cool, casual look, Tilly’s is perfect with their big selection of graphic tees and comfortable jeans.
Festivals are the perfect place to show off your inner fashionista that you don’t typically get to show or to switch it up completely.
