Spring is just around the corner, and you know what that means: fresh flowers, sunny skies, and of course, ultra-popular music festivals. World-famous events like Coachella, Lollapalooza, and Bonnaroo will draw thousands of the most fashionable fans in the world to their stages, and the music and styles of the festivals set the tone for the rest of 2018. In other words, the biggest festivals are pretty much unmissable for all of the top fashion trendsetters.
If you’re planning to attend one of the popular spring music festivals, you’ll need to bring your A-game when it comes to deciding on a wardrobe. Coachella Instagram pictures are golden tickets in this world of digital influencing and highly-desired likes, so your usual concert attire probably won’t be enough to garner attention. After all, you’ll be surrounded by thousands of girls who meticulously weave flowers in their hair and channel their inner desert goddesses. Prepare to stuff your suitcase with carefully-selected dresses, strappy sandals, and hippie accessories galore.
Need some help deciding which outfits to pack for your excursion into the festival world of famous people, blaring music, and memorable fashion statements? Here are ten tried-and-true festival outfits that will wow your social media followers and embrace this memorable experience:

Loose-Fitting Lace Romper
When attending a music festival, you want to show some skin, but not too much. Plus, you’ll be jumping around and grooving to the tunes, so it’s best to wear something that will stay in place. The perfect solution? A piece like this Juan Pablo Ivory Lace Romper. Your legs and back will be bare, but your shoulders will be covered in delicate patterns. You’ll be able to move around without worrying that a gust of Coachella’s desert wind will ruffle your outfit and you’ll look like a princess in all your photos.
White, Flowy Cotton Dress With Gladiator Sandals
Although some might worry that this look has been displayed one too many times at events like Coachella, it’s truly a tried-and-true ensemble. Long white maxi dresses look flattering on every body type and skin color, and they are the perfect fit for stylish music festivals. Keep the look casual with comfortable, flat sandals that weave their way up to your knees and simple jewelry on your hands, wrists, and ears. You can also adorn your head with a fashionable hat to complete your globetrotter-esque appearance.
Shop the Julian Black High-Low Romper | Trendy Rompers
Striking Black Skirted One-Piece
If you really want to turn heads, dress like the queen you are. Rock a piece like the Whitney Black Lace Maxi Romper and watch as its flowing train ripples behind you on the festival fields. Pair the romper with low black sandals, bangle bracelets, and a braid that would make Khaleesi proud. There are shorts built into the piece, so you can feel elegant in your gown without worrying about dancing freely in the crowd or climbing stairs. Throw on a pair of black sunglasses and you’ll be catching appreciative glances from other festival-goers left and right.
Make Disney’s Esmeralda proud with a loose-fitting dress that flares out at your waist and leaves your shoulders exposed to the spring sun. Light floral patterns, shades of white, and fun prints are all great design ideas when it comes to off-the-shoulder dresses. An added bonus that comes with this outfit: it’s very breathable, so you won’t spend all day sweltering underneath your layers. Just make sure to put some SPF on those shoulders! Oh, and pop some large hoops on your ears and bangles on your ankles to complete the look.
Heavily Embroidered Denim Accessories
One look at this year’s top fashion magazines will reveal that brightly colored patches of embroidery are the perfect addition for your denim accessories. Embroider flowers on your trusty jean mini skirt or add fun patches to your denim jacket. You’ll look hip without making a huge dent in your wallet, and if you do the embroidery yourself, you can make sure that your festival look is 100 percent unique.
Slogan T-Shirt Tucked Into Ripped Jean Shorts
You’re going to a music festival, so why not break out your dad’s old concert t-shirts and make them your own? Try tearing the edges or cutting off the sleeves to make them look edgier. You can also wear a shirt promoting your favorite positive or a quirky saying. It’ll certainly be a conversation starter with fellow festival attendees. Match the shirt with you’re a pair of trendy jean shorts so you can stay comfy without ruining your carefully crafted aesthetic.
Classic Romper in a Fun Color
Put a ‘50s spin on your festival attire by rocking something a little girly and classic, like this Joey Cobalt Blue Tie-Front Romper. The beautiful blue shade will stand out in a crowd of Vanessa Anne Hudgens wannabes, and the cute front tie looks flattering on everyone. Inside, you’ll feel like a child in their comfiest one piece, but on the outside, you’ll look more put together than most concert attendees. Pair the look with some classic white kicks that will stay comfortable, even if you hop from one performance to the next for hours on end.
Comfortable But Slimming Jumpsuit
Who says events like Coachella and Lollapalooza must be dominated by white lace and light colored hippie dresses? Stand out from the crowd in a silky soft dark one piece like this Malia Black Wide-Leg Jumpsuit. Enjoy twirling around in your flowy suit, and if you want a little extra pizazz, add some sparkling gold bracelets and anklets to the look. Keep your shoes simple with sandals and wear your hair loose and free.
Obviously, spring festivals like Coachella are all about the flower power, so why not embrace it? Pack a piece like this Maryrose Blue Floral Print Jumpsuit by Lush that’ll go perfectly with your flower crown. The bold colors are a perfect fit for the festival spirit and the deep V-neck and front tie suit the spring weather. Remember to add some dangly earrings for an outfit that screams “flower child.”
