Gov Ball, Coachella, Lollapalooza and many other music festivals are finally back for 2022, and your favorite singers and rappers are going to show off their A-games on stage. As you run from stage to stage at whatever event you find yourself at, you’ll need insanely good festival outfits to take you from show to show. Planning a festival outfit isn’t as simple as putting something on and stepping out; there’s a surprising amount to keep in mind when it comes to your fashion and accessory choices at your next music festival.
Festivals are incredibly sweaty business. More often than not, the sun is beating down on you, you’re on your feet all day, and you’re close to other music fans. Staying cool and comfortable through it all isn’t easy. So you need a festival-ready outfit that won’t leave you totally waterlogged at the end of the day. Think: mesh fabrics, breathable pants, shorts, crop tops and shoes that can withstand the elements no matter what the day throws at you.
Beyond the practicalities of your outfit, you’ll also want to look super stylish. Festivals are a melting pot for maximalist fashion. Psychedelic prints, matching sets and cutouts are all over the festival stage. You can even pull out sportswear to double as festival fashion to keep you cool and airy. Whatever your vibe, having so many options can feel debilitating, so check out some fashion inspirations below and feel inspired for what your next festival look could be.
