Festival season is just around the corner, which means our Instagram feeds will soon be filled up with desert sunsets, quick snippets of performances, and, most importantly, envy-inducing outfits. Music festival accessories are such a necessity, in fact, that they become the central part of a whole look. Whether you're headed to Coachella, Governor's Ball, Austin City Limits, Bonnaroo, Electric Zoo, or Lollapalooza, you're likely going to want to bring your accessory A game.
Music festivals are practically like the red carpets of award shows: You dress to impress. They're a weekend of fashion eye candy, so much so that I don't even know where to turn my gaze when hanging at one. It's like everyone's managed to take my entire style Pinterest board and worn it right in front of me.
Crop tops, cut-outs, huge hats, body chains, patches, baseball caps, fringe, and the coolest bikini tops are all the rage for festival season. And don't even get me started on all the amazing sunnies. They're a bohemian wonderland, and oh-so-magical. When else would you see all the most fashion forward people, celebs included, in one space, all while sipping drinks and listening to your favorite artists?
