When it comes to clothes, there are some general rules that tell you what you should wear in certain situations. At the office you need to look professional, so miniskirts and see-through shirts are out of the question. At formal events, you need to look elegant and classy, and for the gym you have your sports attire. However, at music festivals, all the rules fly out the window. There you can be whoever you want to be, dress however you wish, whether it means sticking some feathers into your hair, wearing a bikini top, or going barefoot (which is not that recommended). If you are going to attend a large music festival in the near future and you have no idea what to put on, this can be a good starting point. Here are some tips that will help you feel comfortable and stylish.
Comfortable shoes are a must
There are some ladies who like to show up at a music festival in heels, but remember that you will be on your feet most of the day. In addition, most music festivals are held somewhere in the middle of the field, where various bumps and holes are ideal for twisting your ankle in stilettos. Therefore, find comfortable footwear you don’t mind spending the whole day in. You can opt for chucks, flat sandals, flat boots, sneakers, or even those cute ankle boots with a thick stacked heel.
Be careful with jewelry
Maybe a music festival sounds like the opportunity to wear all of your statement jewelry, but be careful not to go overboard. If you want to look festivaly with your ankle boots, fringe pieces, denim, bandana, and sunglasses, you really do not need to add loud jewelry to the equation. Instead, go with colorful gem jewelry that will enhance your outfit in the right way. Click here to see what is in style right now.
Hat vs flower crown
If you want to feel like the child of the ‘70s, feel free to place a flower crown on your head. However, if the thought of standing in the sun for hours reminds you of serious sunburns, swap that crown for a wide-brimmed hat. This accessory can elevate your outfit and keep you protected from those harmful UV rays. You can also rock a straw Panama or a baseball hat, whichever suits you better.
Don’t leave your house without sunscreen
Do not attend a music festival without your sunscreen. Depending on how early the festival starts, you will need to reapply it several times. Enjoying your favorite band is impossible when you feel like your face and your shoulders are on fire, so make sure your skin is protected.
Bring a pair of shades
Do you want to squint on every selfie you take? A pair of sunglasses will help you see better, and they will protect your eyes from dust and sand. Of course, they also make you look cool, so it is a win-win situation.
Wear your hair up
When it is a thousand degrees outside and you have to spend the whole day in the middle of an open field, wearing your hair down will make you feel like you are wearing a blanket on your head. Therefore, put your hair up in a cute ponytail, or wear your hair in braids. This way it won’t end up all sweaty and tangled, and you will look put together throughout the day.
A crossbody bag is your best friends
You need to bring a bag where you will place your phone, keys, money, sunscreen, and other necessities. However, make sure that it is not too big that you will get tired of dragging it around the whole day. Also, your hands should be free at all times. Therefore, a medium crossbody bag is your best option.
Now pack your stuff and have a blast!
