PRESENTED BY PRIME WARDROBE

No matter your taste in music, festival season is the one time of the year that listeners of all genres can get excited about. So whether your bread and butter is bass-heavy electronic music or under-the-radar indie groups, it’s likely a handful of your favorite artists are scheduled to make an appearance at at least one festival this season.
When that time comes, you’ll want to be dressed in the perfect outfit to complete the moment. For the best festival looks fit for every style, Prime Wardrobe has the statement-making pieces you need for a sunny weekend full of music and dancing. Order up to eight pieces at once, and prepaid returns give you the freedom to try before you buy and only pay for what you keep. To help you get started, we’ve styled a few looks that are both eye-catching and totally easy to move around in. The only hard part is deciding which style route to take.
Denim-on-denim is one of the best (and probably the most timeless) ‘90s trends that’s effortless, foolproof, and perfect for festival season. Whether sunny blue skies or scattered storms are on the forecast, the denim-on-denim look can be tailored for all weather by swapping out your favorite pair of vintage jeans for a patchwork denim skirt, or vice versa. Finished with a mini backpack for all your essentials and a pair of thick-soled sneakers for comfort, you’ll be hopping from set to set like a total pro.
The majority of modern day festival attire is inspired by the original event that saw its peak in the ‘70s: Woodstock. Although our interpretation of what Woodstock fashion was is a bit less literal than it was when it began, there’s plenty of inspiration to be found, from tie dye and florals to distressed denim and ruffled tops. Our favorite interpretation of ‘70s festival style is with a casual-cool pair of distressed denim shorts, a pretty wrap top with billowy sleeves, and a pair of classic sneakers. With this look, you’ll channel that laid-back feel without looking dated.
If the last two years of fashion have proven anything, it’s that athletic apparel is not just for the gym. From track pants and running shoes to biker shorts and matching sets, we’ve seen workout gear on high fashion runways, in street style galleries, and, of course, all over our social media feeds. To achieve the sporty vibe, try incorporating athletic-inspired accessories like a fanny pack, chunky dad sneakers or a stylish ¾-sleeve version of your middle school track jacket.
Even if you aren’t a fan of country music, the western trend is one worth getting behind. From the more obvious accessories like cowboy boots and neck ties to subtle pieces like delicate turquoise jewelry and flowy prairie dresses, it’s a look that’s simple yet on-trend. Pair a denim dress (like this sweetheart neckline mini) with a pointed suede boot detailed with western motifs. Completed with leather saddle bag, this look delivers just the right amount of cowgirl without looking costumey — although depending where you’re headed, that’s always an option, too.
