Festival clothing is always in fashion, whether you live in the Northern Hemisphere or the Southern. It’s always festival season somewhere, which is why festival outfits are always going to be needed for fun summer music festivals in the grass, trees, beach, or city. If you know me, you know I like to get
a little a lot funky with my festival fashion, with crazy colors, wigs, sparkles, colorful tights, fishnets, fun boots, silly glasses, goggles, netting, leotards and…. well, now I’m getting carried away.
Festival outfits are one of my very favorite ways to get creative, and mix and match different pieces with things from garage sales, different outfits with items I made myself, and make it as colorful and weird as possible. Expressing your true self through dressing up is one of the most fun things in the world, especially when you get to eat, drink and dance to awesome music and look at cool art with your friends at a music festival. And you must think so too if you’ve ended up here!
There’s something about dressing up in festival outfits and crazy clothing that makes you feel like you can be whoever you want to be. It’s like putting on a wig and an alien costume transforms you in to an entirely different, hilariously awesome person, and once you get addicted there will be no going back. This festival outfits guide will bring you the best clothing brands to the fun and funky aspect of festival clothing – for the most colorful, fun, glitzy and sequinned festival fairies out there who like to go all out (like me!).
