Festival Fashion – What to Wear to a Music Festival

In the heat of the summer, perhaps the only thing that can give bugs and mosquitoes a run for their money in terms of prevalence is music festivals. No matter where you live or what you like to listen to, you are bound to be able to find a variety of festivals and concerts in your city or nearby during the summer months. After you've bought your tickets and you're gearing up to go, the only thing left to decide is what to wear to the show. Balancing style with comfort on such occasions is absolutely crucial – avid festival attendees will tell you to dress like it'll be 100 degrees with 100% humidity – so we've put together a list of items to consider that'll help you do that.
Perhaps no article of clothing comes in as many different styles and functionalities as the hat! A wide-brimmed hat, such as a fedora, may be the best pick for staving off the cruel rays of the sun during outdoor and day-time music festivals. The fedora has experienced its ups and downs in fashion trends over the years – including an ironic adoption by many – but its usefulness in this situation and relative acceptance make it a good overall choice during the summer months.

Something light yet durable is the name of the game for outdoor music festivals, as you don't want to lose at least some vital protection when stomping around a venue with thousands of other people. Support, durability and ease of cleaning are all important variables to consider when picking out a set of sandals or flip-flops for the big event; do not rush into your selection or you may end up with footwear that hurts or is hard to clean!  You can check out fashion blogs like Westfield Style for some ideas.

Most people don't show up for a music festival just to stay an hour or two. You'll need to keep many essentials nearby or on-hand, which is why a fashionable bag is all too necessary for this occasion. Fashion trends show oversized bags are all the rage today, so don't be afraid to opt for the “mom bag” in order to be able to fit beverages, mobile devices, food, and anything else you can think of into it. Canvas bags of varying styles are definitely popular this year, with home-made styles becoming increasingly desirable.

Loose Fitting Clothing
In the summer heat, tight-fitting clothing is an absolute no-no. Not only will you be more socially conscious in select situations, but the heat and humidity will make you feel awful when sweat and moisture have nowhere to go. From boho dresses to tube tops and jean shorts, be sure to keep your overall outfit one that allows for easy breathing. Lightweight materials are also ideal, allowing any heat and moisture to easily escape.

Have Fun!

Above all else, be sure to have fun – that's what the music is about! Nobody is there to judge you, so be comfortable and confident, regardless of the outfit.
