With Festival Season in full force, people all over the country are planning their concert outfits and flocking to their nearest malls and department stores. We say, skip the mass retail chains and look to the past for your style inspiration! Music festivals are all about carefree fun, dancing to amazing music, and looking good while doing it. Originating in the 60s, events like Woodstock really set the tone for great festivals. Along those trailblazing lines, the attendees were decked out in floral crowns, fringe, and tie-dye long before generation Y-ers were born, providing a sort of sartorial blueprint for us to reference.
And they truly had festival style down to a T! So, take cues from the originators and dress in vintage to your next event (Coachella, anyone?) Here is a curated selection of some of our favorite vintage pieces that are festival perfection! All pieces are available online and ship worldwide, perfect for the ladies attending this year’s Camden Crawl in London or the Japan Music Festival (and everything in between!)
Are you the two-piece type? Throw on chunky statement jewelry and an unexpected bag to add intrigue.
- 1970s knit halter tank and palazzo set
- 1970s Middle Eastern ammo bag
- Silver and Brass pendant choker
- Beaded white, blue, and black bracelet
Falling for fringe? Layer delicate pieces over a patterned skirt for a fabulously funky style.
For the Sun Goddesses- pair your day dress with a floppy hat in a bright color to keep those UV rays at bay.
We can’t get enough maxi skirts! The combination of a cropped halter top and a flowing, colorful skirt is just such a perfect pair. Up the artsy feel with interesting ceramic and enamel jewelry.
