How To Not Be Basic At Music Festivals

Let's be honest, every now and then everyone loves a flower crown. What people don't love: cultural appropriation. Music festival outfits always walk a fine line - we have the celebs at Coachella look flawless in the heat, but we also have the sweaty almost naked people bringing down the crowd. Music festivals should be fun and care free, and all about the music! Yet, streetstyle photos exist so we want you to look your best and act your best, all while jamming out to your fave band crush.  

First things first, packing essentials:
Multiple pairs of sunglasses, sun protection & layers, comfortable shoes & bags! And we can't forget a hangover pill - that and hydration will help keep your spirits up for the whole trip!

We love a good onesie. Let's take a moment to reflect on peeing in a public bathroom in a onesie.... ok feeling of love has passed. You don't have to give up style for function - rock a proper bodysuit that has a button flap.

Play around with prints and patterns! You're going to be dancing so grab something that allows you to play freely

SO to break it down... Don't wear headdresses, wear comfortable shoes, and bring layers. Whichever festival you go to, have fun, stay safe & look chic!
