Festival Fashion Staples

With Coachella having just wrapped up, and people slowly recovering from the aftermath, it’s time to analyze a few staples that you need to amp up your 2016 festival looks.

Statement Sunnies

Aviators and Wayfarers notwithstanding, it’s time to find eyewear that truly is eye-catching. Be it silver, or ombre hued, statement eyewear is an all-time classic at festivals.

String Bikini

One of the things that has been a must wear at festivals over the years is the Daisy Duke string bikini combo, but this year also saw the rise of the bralette as a viable competitor to the bikini.

Beat the Heat Headgear

While big straw hats are the best way to go, a baseball cap, or visor, or even a bandana is just as good and can be styled to make it your ensemble’s centerpiece.

Tank Tops

Racerback tank tops, and crop tops are the only way to go! They usually come in soft cotton, and are the best thing to wear if you want to stay cool when hanging out in the sun all day.


What’s an ensemble without jewelry? Slim silver bracelets, colored rubber bracelets, bracelets in solid colors, there are so many options. But this year, we spotted some interesting pieces that framed the tank tops rather than hang around the neck. Bikini-shaped necklace, anyone?

Denim on Denim

Do it while it lasts!

Sandals and sneakers

The days of the gladiator sandal are over. This festival season seems to be dedicated to bedroom slippers paired with socks and sneakers of all descriptions!


Simple, fresh, natural, accessorize to the hilt, but keep your skin fresh and minimal. Load up on sunscreen!

White Sneakers

These are and always will be in. Buy a pair and pair them with your festival outfit. Gladiators are so 2004!
