Festival fashion has evolved over the years and there’s no hard and fast rules with no ‘one look’. A festival outfit provides the freedom to express yourself and perhaps wear pieces that you wouldn’t normally wear in your day to day lives. When you’re planning what to wear to a music festival have a think about what inspires you at the moment and channel your individuality. This year we’ll see a lot of crochet, 70s inspired fringe, denim, and lace. Here we explore some festival outfit ideas you could try this season and the shoes you can wear to ensure you’re dancing well into the night!
What to wear to a music festival to stay comfortable all day?
For those of us praying for a festival season filled with lots of sunshine, dresses will be on the top of our festival outfit ideas list. Music festivals are renowned for showing a lot of skin but this year, the barely there maxi dress in soft pastel shades look to be a key trend. A great way to wear this look and stay comfortable all day is to pair your festival outfit with boots. 3 stylish ways to wear a dress with boots include this season’s mesh dress. Opt for a beachy open knit or something with embellishment like a rhinestone-studded micro-mail. Or dare to bare in a girly lace or slip dress. Our Lou Lou patent black ankle boots team perfectly with these looks providing that extra edge to these softer looks.
What to wear to festival to stand out from the crowd?
One of the top 10 trending festival outfit looks is a crochet set which has been huge this spring and will continue to trend into summer. Go sultry with a midi set in a wide knit or take a sportier approach with a shorts and crop set in a closer knit. To complement your festival outfit pair with our white Lou Lou military ankle boots to turn heads as you strut your stuff on route to see your favourite band. Flat shoes are a great way to remain comfortable when you’re dancing away to your favourite tunes but will also make you stand out from your fellow festivalgoers if you choose pairs with more eye-catching colours. Ghazal’s olive-green Sophie loafers work great with this festival seasons 70s inspired tan fringe look. Bare all with a fringed mini skirt or bag for the ultimate in festival cool.
What festival outfit will work whatever the weather?
We’ve all been there; we have the perfect summery festival outfit planned for our big summer outing with the girls and the heavens open. So, it’s best to be prepared for all weathers! An outfit that works for both sunshine and rain – and that ticks all the right boxes for that on-trend grunge look – is black leggings, leather biker jacket and chunky military boots. Or one of the many fabulous festival outfits doing the rounds at Coachella festival this year was a white cropped tank top and extra baggy jeans as worn by model Hailey Bieber – providing both comfort and coolness in a simple understated way. Our Lou Lou ankle boots work great with both these key trends and come in soft black leather with minimal details. Pack a thin cotton floral dress in your tote bag in case the sun decides to make an appearance!
Festival outfit ideas to dance in all day long!
Along with wanting to look the part when heading to a festival, when you’re thinking about what to wear to a music festival consider pieces that will help you last the duration so you can dance along to all your favourite artists until late into the night. Wearing heels of any type could be tricky, especially as most festivals are held on grass fields! Flat shoes or boots for muddier days are a must and work perfectly with a metallic slip dress or ultra distressed denim shorts or skirt – a key festival outfit trend this year. Our Sophie loafers in soft brown or black leather will have you busting some moves long into the night (or early hours of the morning….).
