Round two of Coachella just wrapped up this weekend and we were bombarded with images of celebrities in their festival ensembles and the performances of some of the biggest names in the music industries. However, the festival season has just begun with the first stop being Coachella. With festivals like Glastonbury and Tomorrowland on their way, it’s time to get festival ready. Apart from ensuring that your outfits are stylish and are going to make heads turn, you need to make sure you feel comfortable too, to make the most of your musical experience.
Keep the following tips in mind while putting together your festival outfits and be festival ready!
One of the first and most important things to keep in mind while picking out your looks is the weather. Always, and we mean always, dress according to the weather forecast. If heading for a desert festival like Coachella, shorts and crop tops will help you beat the heat. But if you're heading for a festival where the forecast is rainy, opt for long pants with a stylish jacket and boots.
Most festivals are a long affair and you will be running from one venue to the next to catch your favorite artists. You will be perspiring heavily and hence, it will be smart to keep your make-up to a minimum. You don’t want your face melting a few hours into the festival. Avoid piling on foundation and instead opt for bold lip colors.
We know you love your heels and so we do we. But your whole day is going to be ruined with your feet hurting and you wobbling around and regretting your decision. Therefore, be wise and give your favorite pair of heels a miss while packing for a festival and pack your flats or boots instead.
Comfort + Style
Another important pointer is comfort. While a tight skirt or dress will make you look sexy, you’re going to be really uncomfortable the whole day. You want to spend your day running around and grooving to all the fantastic music but don’t want that ruined by an uncomfortable outfit. Pick out comfy shorts, loose dresses and jumpers. More grunge and less chic. Don’t shy away from accessories, it will only give your look a more Bohemian vibe.
While headed for a music festival in the summer, apart from comfy clothes, you need to take care of your skin to avoid getting a sunburn. Sunblock and sunglasses are an absolute must. You can also carry a hat along, which will also help up your style quotient.
While carrying a fanny pack is the best option, it may not always be the best addition to your ensemble. Carry a stylish mini backpack along, which helps you hop around with all your valuables and you have your hands free to throw them up in the air and sing along to your favorite songs.
Follow these simple steps and you will be all set to make the most of every music festival you head to.
