31 Inspiring Summer Festival Outfits For Women
Is there anyone who doesn’t like music festivals? Maybe… But I am the kind of person who love them, especially when it’s hot outside. Anyway… because I like to be fancy and always prepared, I think all the time how to dress for a summer music festival. And that’s why, mapping out a selection of possible summer festival outfits it’s my way of dealing with the lack of inspiration.
You know how it is: you have the tickets…, the crew of friends…, the location and the dates when the festival will begin and end of course … And after that, it’s time to start thinking about what clothing to pack in your suitcase.
I don’t know about you, but for that, I have to think at each concert and for each of it I have to choose a festival look, because most of the time, the music festivals are not in my hometown. Lucky you, if the festival is in your hometown! 🙂 You’ll have the privilege to change your clothes each time you feel uncomfortable or to adapt your music festival wear to changing weather conditions.
On the other hand, if you had to make a long, long way to get to the party center, make sure you think out your summer festival outfits carefully. Bye bye style meltdowns and funky surprises!
No doubt, music festivals from all over the world have become events that allow aspiring trendsetters and even celebrities to express their wildest and super-creative summer festival outfits. Join the fashion crowd, it’s your time to shine!
In case of concert series that take place in a wild and green area, rubber boots and raincoats are a ‘must‘. In addition I advise you to sacrifice your flirty style ambitions for comfort. Instagram and Facebook-worthy looks can be easily put together with shorts, jeans, Boho maxi dresses and other staples. Think heels and platforms only if the setting makes it possible to wear them. You don’t want to become a celebrity in festival fail army videos! Oh nooooo!
Festival fashion outfit ideas from this year, moved on from cliché ( as uber-many floral crowns) to experimental and unpredictive. Literally nothing is off-limit! Thrift store oversized band T-shirts or granny style dresses with combat boots are definite game-changers. Don’t be surprised if you’ll be approached by flashing cameras or phones. Leave your serious and mature self at home. Think of you festival looks as a manifesto of your originality.
For that, I invite you to find a selection of 30 spring summer music festival outfits, that might inspire you when you have a lack of inspiration, like I do 🙂 !
