With each passing year, music festivals have gained more popularity among music loving millenials. No one can deny that a weekend of great music, fantastic fashion, and—let’s be honest— partying, has Generation Y’s name all over it. With exciting festivals such as SXSW past and Governor’s Ball and Coachella approaching, festival fashion is on everyone’s mind.
Unlike past years, festival fashion has left the big green field and is making its way to the high street. This spring/summer expect to see many festival inspired looks in your travels. If you are on the hunt for a flirty boho chic look, look no further than this style guide.
A festival style essential is and will always be flowers. Many of the outdoor festivals that we go to today were inspired by the infamous Woodstock music festival that took place in 1969. Serving as the the dawn of the “hippie” and the “flower power” generation, Woodstock gave us trends that are still very prevalent.
