Come spring, choosing which festival you and your crew will be attending is always a struggle. Coachella is already in full swing, and has officially kicked off the festival season. As we know, the festival landscape isn't just limited to sunny Indio California, but extends all over North America and the rest of the world—British Columbia, Seattle, New York, and Tennessee just to name a few. Each festival boasts it's own unique line-up and presents us with the opportunity to get creative with our fashion choices.
Up ahead, we've made things a little bit easier when it comes to deciding which festival to hit up and which trends to rock. This season we're updating our closets with the top trends tailored for each of your favorite festivals.
BOHO FOR DAYS
You can't expect to go to any festival, let alone without rocking some kind of fringe. Let your inner flower child free and explore everything the festival circuit has to offer. We expect to see lots of itty bitty shorts to compliment the sun-filled climate and fringe. Our style forecasters predict fringe bags, accented booties, and boho sandals.
Down on the west coast things are the perfect amount of chill and low-key. However, don't get it twisted; west coasters are always down for some good fun and have no problem bringing their laid-back style to center stage. Camping is a big part of the festival experience. Having the perfect festival bag is key when you're packing all your essentials for the weekend or just for the day, ensuring that you're prepared for whatever gets thrown your way.
In the south, it's all about utility and function. Festival goers venturing to the south like Tennessee aren't afraid to rough it and camp outside. But just because you have to be practical and have function front of mind, doesn't mean you have to sacrifice style. I mean, who doesn't love a good ankle boot? The bootie is a great, protective style and is one of the top style essentials to elevate your fashion game this season. If you're headed south this year, there are endless options to choose from, and western should be your first choice (when in Rome).
JUST LACE IT
Summer is sandal season. It's the time of year when you want to let your feet have a breather. So, why not put those puppies in some on-trend sandals? This year, throw on a pair of flat or wedged lace-ups—stylish and perfect for jumping around when you're rocking out to that killer set.
Grab your favourite kicks, because it's time to showcase one of this season's hottest trends. The sneaker is the perfect festival style that incorporates the comfort that is needed during a weekend of jumping from stage to stage. Not to mention they will keep your feet dry in the event that Mother Nature decides to throw you a curve ball.
