Fashion File: Festival wear is all the rage


Talia Silverstein, Contributing Writer

Currently, it seems as though one of the biggest trends on social media and in the world of fashion is festival wear.  One of the most exciting things about summer is the abundance of festivals that it brings.  Although Electric Daisy Carnival (EDC) and Coachella have already passed, there are many more festivals to come.

Festival wear has become its own genre of clothing and has been strongly advertised as the summer approaches.  It includes fun headbands, flower crowns, heart-shaped sunglasses, and just about anything else with a bohemian vibe.  With a look that is free-spirited and fun, you should expect to see lots of florals and fringe in bright and bold colors this summer.  Other trends for festival wear include crop tops and high waisted shorts.  This minimalist, low-maintenance style helps foster a laid-back and flair-filled feel at festivals.

Many stars and fashion gurus, such as Vanessa Hudgens, Katy Perry, and Kylie and Kendall Jenner have adapted this look for everyday life and they have mastered these trends like no other.

Vanessa Hudgens is a festival veteran who is known for her cool and casual looks.  Hudgens likes to wear things that look vintage and are comfortable, such as long skirts and head pieces. She is able to dress these looks up or down, and either way it looks effortless.

Best advice: keep it simple.  Go with one bold statement and work around it. Try fun shorts with a plain top, or a basic short with a brightly-colored or fringed top.    And most importantly, do not forget to layer, as festivals are lively, all-day event, and you should be prepared for anything.  An accessory not to be forgotten is the fanny pack.  You can keep your essentials in it without worrying that you will put it down and lose it.  Now that you know your festival wear essentials you can be ultra-prepared for the summer.
