Put A Spin On Festival Season With 4 Looks You Haven’t Seen A Million Times


If you're a seasoned festival attendee, you might think that if you've seen one festival look, you've seen them all — but that doesn't have to be the case. There's no time like the present to try something new, and with festival season knocking at your door, it's the perfect time to experiment with your looks. After all, what is the freedom of festival season for, if not veering off the beaten path?

In partnership with H&M, we're here to give you some festival outfit inspo you haven't already seen while scrolling your feeds. If you don't feel like doing the rave party neon brights this year, go a little darker with the original rock star outfit: all black everything. Or, if you find yourself missing prints and patterns, play up your wild side with a snakeskin accent.

Ultimately, what you wear is up to you, but there's something to be said for shaking it up, even it's just with a few unexpected style swaps. And the best part? You can rock these looks wherever you find yourself, whether you're hitting up the festival circuit or just seeing a small show with your friends.

Back To Black

Festival looks have evolved into bright neons, wild patterns and intergalactically iridescent outfits, but why not go a little darker this year? Return to the original rock star uniform of all-black-everything for a laid-back outfit.

The New Cutoffs

Denim shorts, sweater, shoulder bag, sneakers, cap

Super short cutoffs have had their moment at every major festival, but if you want to rethink how you're doing denim, go with a slim fit short that has a few more inches of length. You'll have a more relaxed look with a little extra comfort.

On The Wild Side

Tank top, denim skirt, denim jacket, espadrilles, earrings

Leopard print has gotten the title of go-to animal print because it can be paired with anything, but who says the same can't be said of snakeskin? This pattern is just as versatile, is trending in a major way, and is an unexpected walk on the wild side.

Bye Bye Boho

T-shirt with motif, faux leather leggings, sandals, hat, scarf

Boho vibes are a trademark of festival season, but if you want to try something different, switch it up with faux leather leggings instead of a flowy pant — or swap a flower crown for a hat and bandana scarf combo.
