The excitement and thrill is real with the arrival of festival season! Looking the part is expected at crowd-pleasing must festivals like Coachella and Essence and choosing the right wardrobe is key. We’ve got you covered on what festival fashion should be packed in your duffel bag. Here’s our roundup of festival season must-have trends!
Jumpsuits, Rompers & Two-Piece Sets
A great jumpsuit, romper or two-piece set goes a long way! It saves you time in having to create a whole outfit, in which you have to pair everything. It also provides the ultimate comfort throughout a heat-exhausted day. Tobi is one of our favorite festival shopping destinations because they offer a wide selection of great festival inspired styles including floral patterns, ruffles, tribal and strapless pieces.
We already know sunnies are a must-have essential for spring, and reflective ones are the perfect combination of eye protection and superior style. Rihanna, Kendall and J.Lo are all big fans on this festival inspired look. No matter what color or shape your reflective sunglasses are, they can easily be paired with any outfit with lots of style options available. Perverse is our go-to for cost-saving sunnies in crush-worthy styles including round-shaped, cat-eyed and aviators ones.
What’s a music festival without a fun, printed scarf? Wearing a bold scarf, provides the finishing touch to any of your festival ensembles. Both stylish and functional, bandana and square scarves are the ideal styles to wear for unexpected Coachella desert dust storms. As far as color, choose one that goes with the majority of your festival outfits.
You may be standing on feet all day during festival season, so make sure to treat your feet with the utmost care by opting for comfortable platform sandals. These stylish sandals will allow your feet to breathe all day without getting any dirt stuck in them. This season’s most comfortable and festival approved styles are the prim-heeled sandal, lace-ups and espadrille platforms. Cop a few pairs of festival inspired styles from Brazilian based Carrano at Sole of Brasil.
The one accessory you should be wearing out the door during festival season is a hat! Not only are they a festival season style staple, but will also help shield your face from the harmful UV rays. The endless floppy hats you use to see every girl wearing at a music festival has evolved into some other chic looks. Military caps, boater hats and visors will take your hat game to new heights.
