With SXSW over and Coachella quickly approaching, music festival season has officially arrived!

Between the crowds, the heat, and the overall exhaustion you’ll probably feel at the end of the day, style will oftentimes be the last thing on your mind. However, when it comes to music festival-appropriate looks, the biggest challenge is ultimately creating an outfit that’s comfortable and trendy. 

In this post, we’ll show you fab looks you can wear to your favorite music festival. These ensembles are wallet-friendly (all three ring in under $100!) and sure to turn heads. Scroll down to see them all:

Coachella - $97.32

Coachella outfit

Product Info: Romper, Shoes, Bag, Sunglasses, Earrings, BB Cream, Nail Polish (in "Jump in My Jumpsuit")

Coachella goers tend to embrace a boho chic vibe in their outfits, so pick a printed romper for maximum comfort. Keep your accessories to a stylish minimum. We love these elephant stud earrings combined with a fringed crossbody bag. Don’t forget to choose beauty products with SPF to protect your gorgeous skin from the desert sun. 

Electric Daisy Carnival - $79.15

EDC music festival look

Product Info: Top, Shorts, Cardigan, Bag, Shoes, Necklace, Sunscreen

I’ll be the first to admit that I am not a big electronic music fan, but EDC has become a staple music festival scene - it is impossible to ignore its influence. From what I've seen, pops of neon throughout an on-trend ensemble are staples at electronic music concerts.

Keep your outfit pretty simple so you can balance it with a standout kimono-style cardigan. In my opinion, crossbody bags are the concert staple and this bucket shape is both fashionable and practical.

VANS Warped Tour - $88.01

Warped Tour concert look

Product Info: Dress, Shoes, Hat, Bag, Bracelet Set, Lipstick (in "Lust for Blush")

I’m not sure if everyone considers Warped a music festival, but it’s been on the summer concert scene for so many years that I definitely do (plus, it’s the only one I've experienced!).

Choose a fashion-forward dress that’s the perfect mix of flirty and edgy, then pair it with a fab floppy hat that will protect you from the sun's rays. Add pops of color with your bag and lipstick. Keep jewelry to a minimum; no one wants to lose their favorite accessories while having the time of their lives!

Will you be going to a music festival any time soon?
