Your Complete Festival Fashion Checklist

Your Complete Festival Fashion Checklist

The only thing more exciting than a festival is the festival outfits. There’s no better feeling than piecing together a killer fit for EDC, Rolling Loud, or other smaller local festivals. But where do you start? 

Before you hit up your next festival, you might want to stock up on cute new accessories, track down comfortable and chic tops and bottoms, look for matching but comfortable shoes, and make sure to bring a bag — you’ll definitely need it.

If you’re experienced, you might already have an idea of what your list looks like, but if you need some inspiration, we have you covered with a complete festival fashion checklist!

Getting a Feel for the Vibe

Getting a feel for the festival’s vibe might not be hard to do if you know people who have been to the festival you’re planning on attending, but it’s more important than you might think. Music festivals are all about self-expression, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t a prominent theme that ranges from festival to festival.

Check out the setlist, look at photos and videos from past festivals, and talk to people about what the vibe was when they went — this is what’s going to guide your festival wear decisions. 

The Weather Matters

You want to look cute, but you also don’t want to freeze your lashes off or risk having a heat stroke in the middle of a set! Coordinating your outfits with the time of year is a must if you want to enjoy the festival — those tickets aren’t cheap! 

Stand Out Fashion

One thing you’re sure to notice at every festival is that there is no lack of colorful festival wear. If you’ve been to EDC especially, you know how popular it is to stand out with chic but unique outfits that just shine. Don’t believe us? Check out some tagged photos on Insta.

From sparkles and sequins to neon colors, an eye-catching outfit is everything. Look for tops and bottoms that complement each other well but that each feature unique designs. You can also find cute one-piece fits that are to dye for — not a typo, btw.

 Bags For Days

Bags are a festival essential, especially if you’re bringing spare, well, anything, or if you plan on buying merch. Rucksacks are fantastic for storing accessories, a change of clothes, and some snacks.

If you’re just bringing the essentials like sunglasses, makeup, keys, money, and cards, you can get away with a purse. It’s important to keep your bags close to your body and with you at all times when at a festival to avoid losing your things.

Accessories Complete the Fit

Trust us, when it comes to festival fashion, it's all in the details, and the right accessories can make your festival outfits stand out.

First up, let's talk statement jewelry. Think bold, eye-catching pieces that scream, "Look at me!" From oversized hoop earrings that jingle and jangle with every dance move to multi-layered necklaces that add a touch of boho-chic to your ensemble, the right jewelry can transform your festival outfit.

Don't be afraid to mix and match different metals, textures, and styles to create a truly unique and personalized look. Remember, at a festival, more is more, so pile on those bracelets, stack those rings, and let your accessories shine bright like the festival lights!

Don’t forget about the power of a killer pair of sunglasses. Opt for funky frames, mirrored lenses, or even retro-inspired cat-eye shades to add some flair to your fits — bonus points if you find a pair that matches the vibe of the festival you're attending. 

Round sunglasses for a more laid-back festival? Absolutely! Futuristic, geometric frames for a rave? Sweet. The right sunglasses can make you feel like a celebrity in the front row, even if you're chilling in the back.

The Perfect Pair

We all know that a pair of shoes can make or break your festival outfits. 

First up, we have the classic festival staple — boots! These bad boys are the epitome of style and add a hefty dose of rock 'n' roll to any outfit. Channel your inner rocker with a pair of edgy combat boots, complete with studs and buckles, or embrace your bohemian side with some fringe-adorned ankle boots. 

Not only do boots provide amazing support and protection for your feet as you walk around the festival grounds, but they also add an undeniable touch of badassery to your festival outfits.

If you're more of the "comfort is key" type, sneakers have your back! Sneakers are the perfect blend of style and practicality, keeping your feet from hurting while still looking on point. Opt for trendy, chunky sneakers, or embrace the retro vibes with classic canvas kicks.

The best part? Sneakers come in a wide range of colors and designs, so you can effortlessly match them to your festival outfits, creating a seamless and cohesive look from head to toe.

If you’re heading to a summer festival, you can also rock some slides or sandals. These types of shoes are not only lightweight and breathable, but they also allow your feet to soak up the festival atmosphere, feeling the grass beneath your toes or the sand between your feet. Plus, they pair perfectly with flowy dresses, shorts, and all your festival favorites.

Nailing the Practicalities: Sunscreen, Hydration, and More

Let's take a break from obsessing over our fabulous festival outfits and talk about the practical side of things. Because let's face it isn't just about looking good — it's about feeling good too. 

First up, we have the holy grail of festival necessities — sunscreen! Sunburn is not a good look on anyone, so grab a bottle of SPF goodness, preferably with a high SPF rating, and make it your best friend throughout the festival. Slather it on generously, reapply often, and keep your skin protected.

Staying hydrated is as important as finding the perfect festival accessory. Bring your fave water bottle with you, and always keep it filled up. Stay refreshed by sipping on water throughout the day, and if you want to up the hydration game, you can also opt for some electrolyte-packed drinks or coconut water to replenish those lost nutrients.

We know you’ve been wondering when we would bring up snacks. Bring something small enough to carry in your bag so you don’t have to lug it around, just in case you get hungry waiting for your favorite artists or sitting down to take a break.
