What to Wear to Coachella and 2019 Summer Music Festivals

12 Ideas for What to Wear to Your Favorite Music Festivals This Summer



Coachella and many other music festivals will be here before you know it. Be prepared with our 12 point list of fashion and what to wear ideas. Also included are a few dates and line-ups for the hottest festivals of the year we think you shouldn’t miss! We’re in for a lot of good shows this 2019, and you won’t want to miss them. Coachella is a notoriously long event that can be brutal on the body, which explains why the attire of choice not only needs to be aesthetically pleasing but functional above all. The ideal clothing needs to be flexible, breathable, and of course comfortable for all festivals to ensure you have a great time and look good too.

12 Ideas for What to Wear to a Music Festival


1. Kimonos, fringe, and even sheer skirts are popular choices that fit the environment of a music festival very well.


Kimono available at Poshmark. 


2. Vintage clothing has lately been on the rise, and for sound reasoning, it can be pretty cheap. It is relatively easy to find beautiful pieces.

3. For Men: Primitive style button-ups, vintage tee shirts, even old style hippy clothing can be great options to turn heads your way.

4. Unique print tank tops.

5. Backpacks, but remember the size limitations that each show might have.

6. Comfortable shoes. Sometimes the grounds are grassy and flat, so you won’t be surprised to see some people walking around barefoot. However, flip-flops, sandals, or flat boots are the best footwear choices when making your outfit look as fierce as ever. Hot Topic carries a great selection of really cool boots that are perfect, like their Oil Slick Combat Boots for example.

7. Don’t forget about fake body tattoos and facial glitter. They can add a tremendous amount of festival vibes to the full fit. Henna and body art is fun as well.
