10 Essentials For Your Festival Chic Shopping List

Summer is nearly here, and that means one thing; it’s time to get your festival on! Whether you are planning to go to an event or not, the festival ready look is awesome and well worth indulging in. Think floral prints, fringing, and feathers. And with this style the more colors, patterns and detailing, the better, so you have a license to be wild and experimental with colors, patterns and styles. So, without further ado, here is the ultimate shopping list for the festival chic look.


Item #1: Denim

If you are going to be partying for a few days, denim will be your savior. Whether you choose a denim jacket, pair of denim shorts, overalls, jeans or all four, these items will go with everything! This wardrobe staple can be jazzed up with ombre t-shirts, Aztec tunics or crochet tops.


Item #2: An eye-catching romper

An all-in-one suit in a floral, Aztec or geometric pattern is another festival essential. They make a chic, comfortable and effortless outfit.



Item #3: A stand-out pair of shades

A good pair of sunnies is essential for any summer festival. They protect your eyes from the sun, hide your tired eyes after an all-nighter and simply look perfect with every outfit. For festival chic shades we love classic aviators, cat-eyes, 90s round lenses and novelty frames.


Item #4: Cross-body bag

Your favorite clutch or shoulder bag will not be not at home at a festival. A more festival-ready option is a cross-body bag. They are light, safe and stylish. Look for fringed, studded and suede styles. Leather bags are also very much in style.


Item #5: Graphic t-shirt

An edgy graphic tee or two will look super stylish when matched with denim and mismatched with bold, bright patterns. Tie your t-shirt in the middle or at the side for a laid-back look.


Item #6: A boho hat

A wide-brimmed floppy hat is another festival chic essential. It instantly makes an outfit glamorous and laid-back all at once. Find a hat made of light fabric so you don’t end up with a hot head and epic hat hair. These hats are very popular at festivals so to stand out, choose a hat in a unique color like dark purple, crimson or white and tie a bright, floral scarf around the middle.


Item #7: Stylish sandals

When the weather is nice, ensure your feet are comfortable and chic with a pair of beautiful sandals. We love mid-calf and knee-high gladiators, and they look fab with many outfits.


Item #8: Booties

You’ll also need some boots in case the weather takes a turn for the worse, and to protect your feet when you are moshing out in the pit. Suede or leather ankle boots will look right at home in a festival setting.


Item #9: Fringed jacket

You’ll need some warm gear to layer with when the sun goes down, and what better way to do this than with a 70s leather or suede fringed jacket.

Item #10: Boho head piece

Your festival wardrobe would not be complete with an item of hippie head adornment. On trend at the moment are floral crowns, jeweled chains, and peacock feathers.
