How to Dress for a Music Festival Like You’ve Been to One Before

Hopping from Coachella to Bonnaroo with the beau this festival season? Inbox inundated with wardrobe ideas on how to dress like a mud-smothered flower child straight from Woodstock? You’re not alone. But please, don’t listen to those messages: Put down the face paint, say goodbye to those flower crowns, and really, once and for all—lose the headdress. Instead of looking like a time-warp, take a more revamped approach to the art of festival dressing. “Forget overdosing on fringe and all of the ‘chill vibes,’ ” says Market Editor Chelsea Zalopany. “Instead, take a more relaxed, less hemp-y approach with easy-going, loose pieces of clothing.”

And sure, your ensembles can play with hippie-dippie tropes—after all, it is a music festival, where free love arguably began, and there is sure to be plenty of peace, love, and happiness to go around, whether you opt for a light-wash flare pared with a green suede jacket, a lavender macramé frock, or a floral-fied bubblegum-hued dress. And yes, we’ve even got some headgear in there. Lastly, unless you play guitar, please don’t bring one as your staple accessory.
