How To Do Festival Wear The Right Way

Friday, April 5, 2019

Though it's on my bucket list, I've never been to a music festival. As fun as I think it would be, I'm sure I'd end up having a tiny panic attack and crying or maybe having too much to drink and uh oh, still crying. But at least my outfit would look good, right? I digress.

In this instagram age, perhaps the most important part of music festival prep is, in fact, what you're going to wear. However, there's a right & a wrong way to do festival style, & I want you to do it the right way! 

Here's what you need to know: 

First things first, I feel we should get something cleared up. Absolutely under no circumstances should you wear anything that could be considered cultural appropriation. That includes faux tribal tattoos, jewels that go on the forehead, explicit tribal wear, etc. Just don't do it. Culture isn't a fashion statement. 

Moving on. 

When prepping for a festival, a good first step is to look at the genre it's going to be, as that can be an indicator for how you should dress. For example: a country festival like Stagecoach calls for a lot of fringe, cowboy ankle boots, etc. 

Gathering inspiration from pinterest makes for quick ideas, and you can even search the specific festival you're going to. In any case, what you don't want to do is go overboard, kind of along the same lines as the cultural appropriation situation. 

At the end of the day, music festivals are MUSIC festivals- not a fashion show. There IS a middle ground.

It's not a free for all & the right way to do it means you still look appropriate for the venue & weather, and that you're still in line with your personal style.

Most of all, have fun with it!
