Whether you enjoy electronic music or not, we've got several outfits that'll inspire you for upcoming summer nights! 

Outfit 1: This Has Happened All Before

Robert DeLong inspired look

Top // Vest // Jeans // Sneakers // Watch 

This outfit is pretty laid-back and is actually inspired by what Robert is wearing in the music video. Although, as I sat writing this in 90 degree heat, I couldn't even bear to make a look with long sleeves, so I created a sleeveless version for you.

With lime green sneakers and a fun printed watch, you'll still have a touch of that cool, desert style. Grab staple pieces, such a striped button-down, a faux leather vest, and your favorite skinny jeans, and you're set!

Outfit 2: I'm Leaving With the Light


Dress // Duster // Sandals // Backpack // Hat // Necklace

Hey, remember that desert style I was talking about? For this next look, go all out with that theme and get dressed up like you're heading to Coachella.

A printed maxi dress paired with a crochet duster will keep you stylishly cool (both literally and figuratively!). Don't forget your hat to keep the sun out of your eyes, and a fringed bag to hold all your supplies. Finish off with lace-up gladiator sandals and you'll wandering the desert in style!

Outfit 3: I've Got a Restless Mind

Don't Wait Up Inspired Outfit

Dress // Wedges // Clutch // Earrings // Necklace

Can't get any sleep? Why not get all dolled up and go find some other restless souls? For this look, get inspired by the markings that develop on Robert's face throughout the music video.

Green stripes get a fun twist with an intricately printed dress. Play up the green hue with a matching pair of wedges. Add your favorite clutch and silver jewelry, and you'll be ready to stay out 'til the sun comes up.
