How to Dress for Festival Season

Festival season has arrived! Bring on boisterous crowds, rockin’ Indie bands, and the hot Californian sun – we’re ready to get our party on from dawn until dusk … and beyond!

Whether you’re making the pilgrimage to Indio for Coachella or kickin’ it close to home at a local music fest, there’s no time like the present to plan out your festival-ready look. Go ahead and fawn over this year’s fashion trends for festival season – the bohemian-inspired flowy crop tops, fringe skirts, cut-off denim shorts, braids, and body glitter. (So much body glitter!)

If you’ve been following our Instagram stories this week, you’ll know that we’ve been having a blast planning our Coachella-inspired looks for our recent festival photo shoot. We applied our temporary tats, donned our stylish shades, and paired our favorite bohemian-styled pieces with OTBT’s most comfortable shoes for women. Because let’s face it – comfortable shoes are a MUST when you’re standing around in the hot sun, jammin’ out to your favorite bands.

Here’s a look at some feisty and fun festival-ready fashions, perfect for Coachella and beyond!

At Coachella, it’s no secret that bohemian styles reign supreme. But light, flowy fabrics and cute crop tops and cut-offs aren’t just for aesthetic appeal – they’re also essential for keeping cool in the hot deserts of sunny Southern California, where temperatures can climb to over 100° F.

Keeping this in mind, we’ve started this look off with a lightweight white romper. This versatile piece can be paired with almost anything; we wanted to make this look more edgy, so we threw on a black denim vest and our favorite OTBT ankle booties, the Low Rider. These comfortable boots will keep us on our feet all day – plus, they give off a fun, rugged vibe that’s perfect for Coachella. Add the finishing touches – a leather choker necklace, stylish shades, and half-bun hair – and you’ve got a festival-ready look that’s bold and beautiful.

If your fashion leans more towards the flowy and feminine, consider the details that will make all the difference. Flower crowns, fringy necklaces and cat-eye glasses are a great way to add sweet little touches to your festival look, while remaining on trend. Speaking of trends, crop tops and off-shoulder shirts are in – so feel free to rock these breezy pieces paired with your favorite pair of cut-off shorts for a fun, fashionable way to show off your feminine figure.

Want to elevate your look even more? Consider the aptly-named Indio, OTBT’s heeled platform wedges. These 70’s-inspired spring and summer wedges come in three fun metallic shades that pair really well with your favorite statement necklaces, rings, and bracelets. And don’t let the heel fool you – these beauties are deceptively comfortable shoes for women.

Of course, a true festival look isn’t complete without fringe. Accessories like necklaces and handbags can be a great way to subtly add fringe to an outfit, but if you want a look that truly stands out, consider making it the focal point instead. Long, high-waisted fringe skirts make the ultimate statement piece, and we’ve paired ours with a matching black crop top for the ultimate sleek and sexy #allblackeverything look. Amp up the chic factor with gold details, like a bold chain necklace, a lovely hairband, or some classy bangles, and be sure continue the metallic theme into your shoes.

This look paired best with our new favorite style, the Bonitas. These flat sandals are a modern take on the classic gladiator – strappy and metallic with a tassel zipper in the back for easy on-and-off. With these shoes and this look, you’ll easily look like the bohemian princess that you are.

So no matter whether you’re making the trek to Coachella or another nearby music festival, be sure to take your time and have fun putting together a look that emphasizes who you are. Whether you’re free-spirited and fierce, feminine and flirty, or a true hippie chick, Coachella and festivals like it are a great time to let your personality (and style) shine! So get loud, be bold, and rock out in true OTBT style!
