The festival season is upon us, and once again we ask ourselves what to wear. Your festival look needn’t be shabby chic. Exchange your cliched hippie threads for a slicker look this season. The best way to plan an outfit for a festival is to take your own style and elevate it with something bohemian or with a rock & roll twist.
We’ve created our dream wardrobe for festivals that will help you brave any festival weather in style this season, without looking like you’ve tried too hard.
