What is festival fashion?
The clothes festival-goers wear are known collectively as 'festival fashion'. The original festival fashion style, worn by attendees of the famous Woodstock festival, was very bohemian and included a lot of tie-dye and floral garments as well as crochet and lace. Flares and kimonos can both evoke this style era. In recent years, festival fashion has taken on an indie style, with band T-shirts and denim shorts becoming popular. Above all, festival fashion is casual, practical, and bold.
What are some practical considerations for festival wear?
Festival-goers have to equip themselves to deal with all kinds of weather, from the baking sun to pouring rain and icy winds. You can quickly put on or drape jackets, ponchos, scarves, and shawls around your body when the air starts to cool in the evening. You might also have to deal with a lot of mud, which means that the typical festival outfit includes a pair of sturdy shoes, such as leather boots, sneakers, or hi-tops, whereas dainty heels are less popular. A pair of oversized sunglasses and a cool floppy hat are essential to a bohemian summer festival style.
What are the differences between male and female festival wear?
Blue jeans or loose, long shorts are the foundation of a man's festival outfit. You can pair them with a slogan T-shirt and a baggy, long-sleeved shirt worn open on top to complete the look. Women can copy this look with fitted jeans and T-shirts to accentuate their feminine shape. Alternative female festival wear includes a midi dress and leggings, which convey a floaty, bohemian style. You can bring along a beaded bag to carry all your essentials, such as a mobile, water, and sunscreen. Both genders can turn to jackets, hoodies, and ponchos when night falls and temperatures start to drop.
