2021 Music Festival Outfit Ideas
The 20-year fashion cycle has finally hit us and classic late 90s and early 2000s styles are coming back. This festival season, you’ll notice plenty of nostalgic, Y2K looks from gummy jewelry and bucket hats to mesh outfits and platform shoes. Here are some of the most popular fashion trends of the season:
Tie-dye has made quite the comeback in fashion recently. When lockdown first started, two-piece tie-dye loungewear sets were all the rage. Now that we’re getting out of the house again, tie-dye sets are still popular, but they’re making their way towards the stage now. What’s so great about tie-dye is it’s available in a variety of colors, shades, and patterns so you get a completely unique piece every time.
Neutral colors such as white or black pair well with tie-dye and if you’re feeling really bold, try pairing your tie-dye top or tank with a patterned skirt or vise versa. You can even use tie-dye in your accessories. Just put on a tie-dye bucket hat or scarf and you’re festival ready! You can also try bold tie-dye pants such as these high-waisted side fringe pants from JaDa Loft.
A good shoe can really put your already killer outfit right over the edge. This festival season, chunky shoes are extremely popular. Whether you’re into tennis shoes, boots, or sandals, there’s a chunky version of it out there for you, and you won’t be sorry you went for it. Not only do chunky shoes look cool, but they also provide a little extra height to help you see over the large crowds around you.
Some of our favorite pieces to pull together for this look include a denim skirt, a cute cropped top, and a colorful chunky tennis shoe. Or, for a bolder look, try a nice black chunky boot that you can match with anything!
Animal print never really goes out of style. In fact, more and more animal prints are being used in women’s fashion such as butterflies, snakes, and cow prints. The classics are still quite popular as well, with leopard and zebra print being ever prevalent in festival fashion these days.
Clothing with cut-outs is extremely in style right now. Cut-outs create a flattering look on any body type that really lets your confidence shine. This popular festival fashion trend also gives others the idea that you’re edgy and daring. There are several different cuts to choose from in this category, but the most popular include the “waist-floss” and open-back design.
Rainbow and “gummy” jewelry that resembles candy are so 1990s and we are here for the throwback. Who wouldn’t want to wear a necklace that looked identical to real gummy bears or had all the colors of the rainbow in it? Taking inspiration from rave culture, stacked rainbow bracelets and candy necklaces are a festival fashion staple.
You can get this look too with our Disc Bead Bracelets that add the perfect touch of the noughties.
Mesh and Crochet Pieces
Mesh tops and other crochet pieces are also quite popular in festival culture right now. What’s so great about this look is it’s cooling and comfortable while also being stylish and sexy. Many women wear bathing suits or bralettes under their mesh outfits which gives an added element to the layered look. The mesh is often in neon, bright colors, while crocheted pieces appear more natural or neutral.
Try a unique fishnet top or full-on 3-piece mesh set which includes bralette, shorts, and long-sleeve mock neck mesh dress. Also, check out this crochet swimsuit which is perfect for pairing with a cute skirt or even a crocheted swimsuit cover.
