Whether you’re headed to Burning Man, Coachella, Bonnaroo, Pitchfork, Afropunk, Glastonbury, Lollapalooza, Outside Lands, or any other popular lineup in the books – the best music festival outfits are the ones that showcase your true personality. While these events take place worldwide, they all celebrate the power of community and togetherness while promoting independence. Everyone can choose which stage they flock to, how many headliners they see, and, of course, their outfits.
This year’s festival trends are grounded in the ’90s and early aughts, with a touch of whimsy or fantastical elements thanks to influence from “Bridgerton“‘s regencycore and “Euphoria“‘s dream-like edge. Whether you’re looking for ways to repurpose bodysuits and swimwear with your cutoffs and cowboy boots or seeking bohemian inspiration for your free-flowing maxis, fringe, crochet, or fedora, there are many different ideas to see and shop.
Ahead, find a breakdown of each festival’s signature aesthetic, scope out some festival must-haves, and then scroll through all the latest street styles from recent festivities to consider ways you can reuse pieces you already own. You’ll be surprised what new combinations come to light when you add some tinted lenses or team up two different textures you’d never think to wear simultaneously.
