Although styles always change from season to season, fashion staples at music festivals remains the same. Cut-off denim shorts, flower crowns, fringe, they are all so timeless and are often seen at music festivals. But how to stand out from the crowd that somehow looking all the same? It is not hard, here is how.
For the first style I would like you to wear a dress, a printed and off shoulder one. This type of lightweight dress with details on its shoulders really click with music festivals. They are made from a lightweighted fabric and when the sun is up and you’re sweaty, this dress won’t cling to your skin.
Prints have made a successful transition from granny’s sofa fabric to the epitome of high fashion. So choose a unique print for your dress that mesh with music festivals, for example palm trees or flowers. Orange or coral will also make your dress more interesting.
Printed dress like this is perfect to be companied with netural accessories. You can smartly opt for a pair of black ankle boots and crossbody bag. Make sure to wear the most comfortable boots you have to prevent having blisters. Then, smartly opt for a sun-shielding beekeeper hat and a sunglasses to protect your face and eyes from the sun. Finish your look with an orange nail polish!

The second style is more unique. It’s perfect if your motto in life is ‘dare to be different’, when you always go out with unexpected style but still rocking it beautifully.
Let’s start with crop tops and shorts, that are absolutely two of many festival staples. Mix n match your favourite crop top and shorts but try to play with textures and prints. It is definitely a clever touch for the simple crop top-short combination. Jacquard weaving is so trendy and can instantly give a polished touch to your simple white crop top and mettalic shorts will make people admire your style.
Then, you can channel Charlotte Free unique style by wearing out of the world accessories. For example, a transparent alien bag, oversized sunglasses with sharp edges, and horn earrings that are so different from a simple cross body bag or ray bans. This is how to be different among the crowd.
Lastly, flatform sandals are for the win! This footwear choice is comfy and cute at the same time. As devoted you are to heels, you are more devoted to keeping your backs healthy after standing for a long, long time. The cheerful green flatform sandals will make you forget all about heels and make you enjoy the festival without annoyance.
See? Standing out from the crowd isn’t hard when your outfit has nice color and details – oh and if your nails are awesomely vibrant! So are you heading to a festival this summer? What are you going to wear?
