Discover the music festival trends of 2015, and choose the ones that fit best with your personal style. Whether you’re going to a summer festival in the dessert or at the beach, here are the hot looks that you shouldn’t miss.
Retro ‘70s Inspiration
Bohemian floral prints, suede and other retro elements from the ‘70s made a big splash on the runways, both for Spring/Summer and for Fall, and they’re absolutely perfect for an outdoor festival.
From flowy crop tops to maxi skirts, don’t be afraid to embrace your inner hippie while also channeling the more refined style of the ‘70s.
While it certainly sounds counterintuitive to wear white at an outdoors festival, this is definitely one of the top music festival trends for 2015. Even celebrities have embraced white at Coachella, including Rosie Huntington-Whitely. Whether you choose a white top or dress, don’t be afraid to look immaculate this summer.
The biggest trend that was born out of the ‘70s revival, fringe was everywhere at Fashion Week, and it’s definitely one of the trends that can be translated the best for a music festival. Whether it’s on your bag, your top or your shoes, there’s not such thing as too much fringe this summer. Make sure it’s long to stay trendy, and don’t be afraid to try a fringe skirt.
Lace and Crochet
Another bohemian influence that’s shaping up to be one of the big music festival trends in 2015, crochet and lace appliques are definitely a great idea. You can try them in any color, and they’ll bring you plenty of style points, but if you decide to combine this trend with the white one, you’ll definitely have a winning look this summer.
Normcore is still hanging on after a strong 2014, so standing out by blending in might make a strong style statement on the festival circuit. Neon shades and psychedelic prints will never go out of fashion when it comes to summer music festivals, but if you want to try something new, focus on warm earth tones, from terracotta to taupe. This doesn’t mean you have to look bland, you can find plenty of cool prints that mix these warm shades.
They’ll never go out of style in summer, but denim cut offs are taking a small step back this year, leaving room for more colorful options. Try a more vibrant color and pair it with a white top for a trendy look that fits right in with the music festival trends of 2015. You could even go the white option, but don’t forget that the best companion to cut offs is a nice crop top.
Slouchy is the way to go when it comes to your bag this summer. The bucket bag, particularly with a lot of fringe, is the hottest accessory for festival style. Even if you don’t like the shape of a classic bucket bag, make sure that you go for a slouchy look, and forget about more structured bags.
Wide Brim Hats
Sunscreen isn’t always enough to protect your complexion in the scorching sun, so don’t forget to pack a wide-brimmed fedora. It’s one of the most important music festival trends in 2015, because it perfectly fits the ‘70s retro esthetic. Complete your look with a bohemian twist by opting for a wide-brimmed hat in a neutral shade.
Lenses and frames in bright shades are among the top sunglasses trends for the year, so expect to see a rainbow of colors at music festivals this year. To really stand you, you can choose sparkly frames or even mirrored lenses with different colors. You can even opt for colorblocked frames.
The Single Earring
While last year metallic temporary tattoos were a huge trend for summer, the single statement earring is about to become one of the top music festival trends in 2015. While your style can be chic and functional, you can go all out with an embellished earring that adds a bit more edge to your summer festival looks.
