This first look is centered around a classic pair of denim shorts. You can never go wrong with a pair of jean shorts. These are the Levi’s Ribcage Light Wash Denim Cutoff Shorts that feature a flattering high-waisted fit and a lightly distressed silhouette.

I paired the shorts with this fun cream crochet-knit tank and some high-top platform white Converse. I finished the outfit off with this gold body chain that would look so cool draped over this outfit.

This look is certain to keep you comfortable but still is super cute!

Overalls are always a fun look because they are super cute and keep you comfortable all day long. These are in a fun color to add something a little different. I love this green color for summer.

I layered this white cropped tank underneath and added some black combat boots. Combat boots add a more edgy style to the look and are perfect for festival season. I finished off with a pair of oversized black sunglasses.

This is another one of my all-time favorite looks. Denim-on-denim is a super popular and fun trend to try out this festival season. This bralette and jean set are from Princess Polly. They are in this vintage-blue wash. The jeans have a cargo-utility style to them which makes them super fun and trendy.

I added these chunky platform white sneakers, silver hoops, and a simple black belt bag to hold all your essentials in for the night. Belt bags are the best for the festival season because they stay secure and you can have both of your hands free.

Knit Dresses

Knit dresses are super trendy for festival season, especially this year. This one from Zara is in bright orange color. It has a sleeveless design and a round neckline. I paired it with these chunky green sneakers and a matching green mini shoulder bag.

I finished off the look with this flowy hair scarf that you can use to pull your hair back with. Hair scarfs are a great accessory to add on to any festival or concert ensemble.

It’s a tie-dye pink and white pattern with a lapel collar, v-neck and long sleeves. I added the long mom shorts from Cotton-on. They are light wash and high-waisted.

The real stars of this look are these amazing cowgirl western-inspired boots and this sparkly beaded mini bag. These pink boots are faux-suede with a block-heel and pointed-toe. This bag is super sparkly and amazing looking with the beading and chain strap detail.

This last outfit styles this fun jacket from Dolls Kill. It has bright patchwork details and a cropped fit. This jacket is so fun and cool for a festival and since it gets colder and night, this would be a great layered look.

I added this fun green bikini top underneath and layered on a pair of high-waisted boyfriend distressed jeans. I finished off this look with this fun brown cowgirl hat. Cowgirl hats are super cute and fun for festivals!


The best way to complete a look for festival season is with some accessories! I’ve listed some below that would be great with any one of these outfits and spice up any look.


Cowgirl hats are super fun for summer festivals. The western style is a big trend we are seeing right now with the hats and all the cowgirl boots.

This one is especially cute because it’s a fun take on the traditional hat with a bright green color. It’s made of woven straw with a crochet design and twine rope around the crown.

Leather Belts

A classic leather western belt like this is a great accessory to add to any outfit. You can wear one with jeans, denim shorts, skirts, and over dresses.

Mini Bags

You don’t want to bring a bag that’s too big to a festival, so a mini shoulder bag like this is perfect. I love the fun bright pink color and the silver stud details. It also has some fun buckles and adjustable straps.


A large pair of sunnies like these are not only trendy but are great for daytime festivals that are super sunny. This oversized black pair has a great large square shape and are super affordable from Amazon.

Belt Bags

Belt bags are my favorite bags to wear to concerts because your belongings are super secure and your can keep both hands free all night. This one from Asos is a fun pink color and a nylon material.


Pink bandanas like this are a perfect add-on to any festival outfit. Tie this one in your hair or around your neck for a fun look.

Layered Gold Necklaces

I love the look of lots of layered gold necklaces. They add some extra style and glam to any outfit and are a great choice for festival season.

Fun Statement Earrings

Fun statement earrings like these from Zara are the easiest possible way to spice up any outfit. These bright orange flower ones would look super cute with any of these outfits. I love the look of mixing bright colors together, and it’s a really trendy thing to do this year.

Hair Jewelry

Hair jewelry like this has been super trendy at festivals and concerts. You can braid the stars into your hair or snap them in some curls. Either way, you’re sure to turn heads!

Style Tips for Your Festival Outfits

Here are some style tips to keep in mind when styling your outfits for the festival season!

Wear comfortable shoes

You’re probably going to be doing lots of walking, so wearing a pair of shoes that are very comfortable is super important. If you have bought a new pair of boots to wear, I recommend wearing them around your house every chance you get pre-festival to try to break them in.

Wear sunscreen

You’re going to be outside all day so it’s important to wear sunscreen to protect your skin and your face. (Here are our favorite sunscreens.)

Wear your hair up or in braids

If you love to dance, it’s a great idea to wear your hair up in some type of hairstyle to get it off your neck and prevent you from sweating or getting too hot. There are so many fun and cute styles to try — here’s our list of our favorite summer music festival hairstyles.

Wear minimal makeup

Since it’s going to be so hot, you don’t want to be wearing too much makeup or heavy face products that can make you sweat. It will make you feel so much better to have a fresh face or lightweight minimal makeup on since you’re going to be at the festival all day.

Select one or two statement pieces

Add to your look with all the fun accessories I mentioned above. Adding one or two statement pieces can really complete your look and throw it all together.

Layer up

Since you’re going to be at the festival from an early day well into late at night, It’s important to wear layers that you can add on when you get colder at night, but also take off when it’s hot during the day. Flannels, shackets, and denim jackets are perfect for this.
