The summer brings a bumper crop of three-day music fests. Finding the perfect outfits means balancing dressing for the elements (you're going to be outside all day long, after all) with showing off some style. Here's a guide to pieces that will keep you ready to rock, rave, or tap your cowboy boots.
Layering is key for spending the day out in unpredictable weather, but opt for lightweight pieces that can get stuffed in your bag if it’s too hot. Release your inner Stevie Nicks and dance through the crowd with this low-key, fringed kimono.
Never underestimate the power of a hat spice up your outfit and guard against sunburn. Represent your favorite team—personally, as Chicagoans, we might don this Blackhawks hat while catching The Fratellis.
Heavyweight jeans can be a drag (and sweaty too). Opt for shorts, or look for joggers in lightweight materials. These comfy shorts infuse a bit of psychedelic art into your look.
If you’re heading to Country Thunder, iHeart Radio Country Music Festival, or Blue Ridge, then the iconic cowboy boot is the way to go. And if you’ve ever been at a fest in the rain, you know how quick it can turn into a field of mud, making rugged footwear a smart choice.Carrie Mackevich is a freshman at Emerson College majoring in Marketing Communications.
