Fall Festival Outfits
Posted on 17 September 2019
Counting down the days until your next festival retreat? We get it. Riding that wave of energy that only comes after hours of rocking out to some of your favorite DJs and bands while vibing with your tribe is… well, unlike anything else... and while you may not be able to do that every day (can someone make this a job? please?) you can have some fun right now by planning out your outfits for your next musical getaway!
So, mix up a mojito (or mimosa if it’s before noon), slap on a shimmering temporary tattoo, and queue up your favorite Spotify playlist ‘cause we’ve got a whole bunch of selfie-worthy outfits that will stand out this fall festival season.
Life Is Beautiful 2019 - Las Vegas, Nevada
September 20th - 22nd
Whether you plan on catching Post Malone and Billie Eilish playing at the downtown stage or living that pool party life while enjoying an acoustic set by Dashboard Confessional, you’ll want to make sure you’re dressed to enjoy that Vegas heat. This is a great festival for wearing bold colors and showing off that summer bod you worked so hard for before sweater weather returns.
Outfit 1 - Take a walk on the wild side with animal print. Layer a deep v-cut one piece with a lace split maxi or add a little shimmer to your look with a luna sparkle skirt.
Outfit 2 - If we learned one thing from fall fashion week, it’s that neon is definitely in. Show off your abs in a lemonade one piece or scrunchy neon bikini. Give your swimsuit a little rhinestone flair on the walk from your hotel room to the pool by wearing it with a Make It Sparkle mesh dress.
Outfit 3 - Accentuate your neckline with a snakeskin tube top and a choker necklace. This duo will look great with high waisted denim shorts and python booties.
Sea Hear Now 2019 - Asbury Park, New Jersey
September 21st & 22nd
This fest takes the land and sea theme to the next level by combining live music with pro surfing exhibitions, and delicious food. You can start your day off with a free beach yoga session and limber up for a day of movin’ and groovin’ to your favorite tunes. Plus, this festival’s focus on sustainability means it’s something you can feel good about being a part of.
Outfit 1 - September in New Jersey can bring some unpredictable weather, so layers are going to be key for this fest. You can’t go wrong with a comfy and stylish pair of boyfriend jeans, and they’ll look great with an eye-catching double buckle belt. To contrast your relaxed fitting bottoms, we suggest a more form-fitting top, such as a long sleeve lace bodysuit. If you get chilly at night, simply toss on a twist front cropped sweater.
Outfit 2 - Show off a pair of snakeskin print booties by wearing them with mid-rise frayed skinny jeans. Top off your look with a vintage band t-shirt and a trendy Panama hat. This outfit will look even cuter with a bandana tied around your neck, and you can wear this look with your favorite bomber jacket or leather moto jacket when the sunsets.
CRSSD 2019 - San Diego, California
September 28th & 29th
Soak up some blissfully warm Southern California weather while enjoying Portugal The Man perform live on the ocean view stage or catch ARTBAT at the city steps stage before bar hopping in Little Italy.
Outfit 1 - Go all in on vintage style by pairing striped or solid black bell bottoms with a Harley Davidson vintage tee. Top off your look with a fiddler cap or conductor hat.
Outfit 2 - Take basic black and white up a notch with a zebra print bodysuit and pair it with a repurposed black denim skirt. Finish off your look with fun accessories such as a zebra trim cowboy hat, large hoop earrings, and stackable silver necklaces.
Austin City Limits 2019 - Austin, Texas
October 4th - 6th & 11th - 13th
From the beer hall to art installments, and artisans selling some amazing handmade goods, there’s plenty to explore at ACL fest in between rocking out to the incredible lineup of musical acts. This is a great festival to show off your personal style whether you like repurposed vintage garments, slinky bra tops with just the right amount of fringe, or bright and bold bodysuits. Plus, you’ll definitely want to make it a point to embrace your inner cowgirl. Luckily, this festival is two weekends long, so you can show some love to all your favorite styles.
Outfit 1 - When the weather’s warm you can strut your stuff in a fun little number that’ll show off your curves by pairing our best selling Verona bra with desert undies from EastnWest Label. This outfit will look extra sassy with some western cowboy boots or snakeskin thigh high boots.
Outfit 2 - Super cute lace bodysuits can be dressed up or down, and they offer breathability when you’re going to be spending several hours outside in the sunshine. Pair them with distressed denim shorts, and top off your outfit with a lightweight straw hat that’ll help keep the sun out of your eyes. This outfit will go great with a pair of cutout booties.
Outfit 3 - Vintage shirts are always in style and what better to wear while enjoying Guns N’ Roses’ set than a vintage Guns N’ Roses tee? Distressed high waisted denim shorts and cowboy boots will go great with any vintage top and you can accessorize your look by rocking it with a cowgirl hat and a killer pair of sunglasses.
AFROPUNK 2019 - Atlanta, Georgia
October 12th & 13th
AFROPUNK has taken off since it’s 2005 debut in Brooklyn. Now making an appearance in major cities all over the world, this celebration of black artists will be taking place in Atlanta this October.
Outfit 1 - Fortunately, the crazy heat that Atlanta is known for should subside by the time AFROPUNK kicks off, and this festival is the perfect place to showcase wardrobe with vibrant prints. Try pairing a jumpsuit featuring multi-colored stripes with a statement necklace and a floppy hat. A cropped cardigan will match well with this outfit and help you stay warm in the evening.
Outfit 2 - An oversized sweater with rough edges and bright color block design will look super cute with a denim mini skirt and boots. Wearing this outfit with a simple crop top or bodysuit underneath will give you the option to lose the sweater if it does get a little warmer during the day.
Escape: Psycho Circus 2019 - San Bernardino, California
October 25th & 26th
Spend Halloween weekend in spook-tacular style at this annual electronic music festival brought to you by Insomniac Events. From extravagant themed stages to costumed performers, there will be no shortage of visual art to enjoy in addition to the killer musical acts. We highly recommend wearing a Halloween costume at least one of the days you attend this festival, but here are a couple of themed outfit options to consider if you’re saving your costume for a party on the 31st.
Outfit 1 - Regardless of which zodiac sign your birthday falls under, we can all embrace our inner star child. Wear a black or nude bra with beaded star detailing under a star mesh cropped tee and harness the beauty of the cosmos. For your bottoms, go for star accented denim shorts or get your sparkle on with a pair of rhinestone pants. Finish off your out-of-this-world look with a star charm necklace.
Outfit 2 - The great thing about Halloween makeup is it turns just about any outfit into an instant costume. Want to get more use out of your formalwear? Break out that old prom dress and rock it with sugar skull makeup! This also applies to that beautiful white dress you’ve been yearning for an excuse to buy. Wear an elegant white dress with some zombie makeup and voila! - Zombie bride costume. Plus, you can wear that dress next spring or summer with a cute pair of gladiator sandals.
Depending on your favorite type of music and how far you want to travel, there are lots of unique festivals to get excited about this fall. Wherever you’re headed, don’t forget to bring a cute purse with a strap so you can keep your ID, lip gloss, and other essentials secure while you’re holding your drink and recording a video for your Instagram story. You’ll also want to make sure you’ve got a great pair (or several pairs) of shades to keep your mascara from melting and help you see the stage in the midday sun.
