Music Festival Style

I recently had the pleasure of attending Bluesfest, and while I saw some awesome bands (okay, my favourite band, Fun., was playing, no big deal or anything :P) I also noticed people with awesome style. I didn't really know there was a certain style showcased at a music festival, but as the afternoon and evening wore on, I noticed some repeated outfits and items of clothing that I thought would be of interest to the rest of the fashion world. So if you're planning on attending a music festival this summer, here are some outfits and style ideas to kindle your inner hipster-rock-bohemian side.

The first thing I noticed was a lot of floral print. As you know, I am obsessed with anything floral, so you can imagine my delight when I saw people sporting floral dresses, blouses, shorts, and accessories! What can I say, floral print is just timeless and can be worn for any occasion! In this outfit I paired a floral bustier dress with some flat braided sandals. Sandals may not be the best choice for a music festival (especially when if it's supposed to rain!) but I thought these were a great alternative to sneakers. :)

Next, I noticed many people wearing denim shorts, whether they were ripped, high-waisted, or detailed in another way (such as the ones above with a crochet hemline). Denim shorts are easy, casual, and can be paired with pretty much anything.

Now, this might have been due to the fact that Hunter Hayes was playing the day I went, but I saw a lot of plaid shirts, whether they were worn open over a plain cami, or tied up like the one in the outfit above.  Paired with denim shorts and cowboy boots, this is a great laid-back look for a music festival (especially if your favourite country singer is playing :P).

Printed tank tops were also a major piece of clothing that I saw at the festival. The different designs and sayings are perfect for showing off your quirky side! In the last outfit I paired a tribal printed crop top with high-waisted shorts and Converse.

As you can see from the outfits, there are some simple accessories that you should bring with you- a cross-body bag, sunglasses, and hat. These not only complete your laid-back look but are just...really practical when you think about it.

I hope you enjoyed this post! Until my next one, stay stylish! :)
