How to Style Your Festival Outfit

  • Written by Paul Sebastian

When you hear the word festival, you would usually think of events such as Tommorrowland, Glastonbury, Coachella, and Burning Man. These are just some of the many music festivals that happen around the world. Although, all of them share one common theme and it’s always with what they wear to these festivals. 

If you happen to be a first-timer going to these festivals, you’ve already guessed that people who attend them would usually go all-out with what they wear. Clothing such as festival tops is not something that you would normally see a person wear on their day to day activities. With that said, you might need assistance in how to look your best in these festivals. 

Know the Theme of the Festival

Before you go and shop for your outfit, you have to know what the theme of your favourite music festival is going to be. It’s important because you don’t want to feel out of place when you arrive. It’s not a good feeling because this can give people the impression that you don’t know what you’re doing, which is what you should definitely. 

Doing a quick research on the festival you’re going to attend can give you an idea. If ever the festival has a social media account, you can always check them out and see how people are dressed. Once you have it figured out, you can start from there on what clothes to buy for the upcoming festival. 

Pair Everything from Head to Toe

Sometimes, women go crazy with their festival outfit, thinking it would look good on them just because it’s colourful and stands out from the rest. What they don’t know is that they’re standing out in a bad way and people might give them a disgusted look. 

But now that you’re looking for the perfect pieces of clothing for your festival outfit, there are several aspects you need to consider to make it look good. You need to know that not everything goes well together. From the colour, design, and what type it is, you should know how each piece can help complement the others. 

Usually, the best trick is to know the colour combinations of each clothing you wear. Aside from what type of clothes you’re wearing, the colour is also the basis whether it can look good on you or not. Since most music festivals have a colourful theme, you can always follow the colours of their posters, and you work your way from there. 

Once you already have a colour pattern carefully selected, the next step you need to do is find clothes that have those colours. You might think it’s easy finding them, but creating a beautiful festival outfit takes a lot of time to complete. There will be times when you won’t find the one that you’re looking for in malls, so you have no choice but to turn to online shopping, and it would usually take days for it to arrive at your doorstep. Looking for specific clothes like festival tops should be done at least a few months before the festival to ensure you don’t panic and mess up your outfit in the end. 

Hopefully, these simple steps can help you bring out the best in your outfit. Once the pandemic ends and all music festivals come back, you’ll be more than prepared for it now.
