Do you hear that? It’s the sound of music festival season in the near distance! As we patiently await concert and outdoor music festival season, we can’t help but start to plan out looks that will turn heads and land us on best-dressed lists! Whether you’re stomping around on the grounds of Lollapalooza or catching your favorite band play on the hillside, concert fashion and style is just as important as the music you’re showing up to listen to!
While we consider accessorizing and styling serious business, it’s also important to remember that your outfit should be just as practical for the festival environment as it is fashionable. Some music festivals may have dress codes or types of clothing that aren’t recommended so be sure to check for dress codes before you start outfit planning.
We’ve put together a style guide that will help you navigate festival fashion and give you inspiration for your next concert look. Because music festivals often host a plethora of genres and different crowds, this style guide caters to all styles! Which look speaks to you the most?
If you find yourself obsessing over Woodstock, you’ve found your spot in our style guide. Your go-to festival look will be made up of plus size tie-dye dresses or a band tee tucked into some bell-bottom jeans. If your style tends to look more boho during music festivals, prioritize a see-through, lace floral duster kimono to achieve a more whimsical look. Whichever look you decide to rock, top it off with some chic, retro sunglasses.
If you’re planning to be front and center for Arianna Grande’s set, your look is going to be one made up of the most current trends. For the ultimate trendsetter look, shoot for a monochromatic outfit with bold pops of neon accents or sequins. If music festivals aren’t your New York Fashion Week, but you’ll be at all the pop stages, style plus size rompers that speak to your personality. You can go with bold prints or muted neutrals and throw in some festival accessories like face glitter or glow stick wristbands!
Hip Hop Hunny
When your favorite performer gets the crowd to jump, will you be in the front row? Hip hop sets can be some of the most interactive when it comes to crowd involvement which means your outfit needs to be practical so it can move with your body and have you feeling confident all day long. Mix-and-match your favorite pieces with plus size athleisure clothing for a functional look that gives off cool-girl vibes. If you’re looking for a more classic look, pair an edgy crop top with your favorite pair of plus size denim. Top your look off with some unique sneakers.
Are mosh pits your thing? You go, girl! If you’re an alternative chick who just wants to get down at your favorite set, grab your go-to plus size distressed jeans and a band tee. Accessorize with belts and some sneakers. If you spend your time in between alternative and pop sets and want a style that’s more versatile, pair your jeans with a plus size graphic tee and tie it into a crop top.
If you’re the girl who always has cowboy boots on and a cowboy hat in tow during music festivals, you’re going to want to stock up on plus size off the shoulder tops. These versatile tops will pair perfectly with your cut-off shorts, curve-hugging denim and distressed mini skirts. Whether you’re looking for muted colors or bright hues, off the shoulder tops are perfect for the country girl who’s ready to two-step.
If you don’t have a type of music that you gravitate towards and you genuinely love going to music festivals to hear new music and discover up-and-coming bands, you’re a chameleon! Because you bounce around from genre to genre, your outfit may be a little more on the classic side. Pair your favorite pair of jeans with a cropped top or a deep v-neck half tucked in. Top it off with some statement sunglasses and a wide-brimmed hat for a festival fashionista touch!
