While it might be winter, it’s never too early to start planning your outfits for spring music festivals. With a new year on the way, it’s time for new festival outfits! If you’re wondering what kind of festival fashions are on the rise for 2023, we’re here to help. Read on for a list of some of the hottest fashion trends that you can incorporate into your closet for any festival that you attend in the new year.
We Love (Faux) Leather
One of the biggest trends on the rise in festival fashion is faux leather clothing. Given that regular leather can be incredibly costly and difficult to take care of, we recommend going with faux leather pieces that you can easily hand wash, air dry, and wear to the next festival you’ve got on your calendar.
For a sexy faux leather look that’s sure to stun, try wearing a faux leather bralette top with a peekaboo ring cutout in the center of it. Pair your top with a matching faux leather skater skirt or a pair of wide leg leather pants, if the weather looks like it’s going to be a bit cold.
Additionally, your faux leather clothing pieces will pair perfectly with your favorite pair of faux leather platform boots. To accessorize, you can wear a black leather choker with stud appliques and matching black fishnet gloves. Truly, you can’t go wrong with a head-to-toe faux leather look this festival season.
Unleash Your Inner Space Cowgirl
If you’re looking to take your festival looks in a new direction this year, why not embrace a Western style that’s out of this world with a space cowgirl ensemble. In order to craft a look that’s equal parts “Yeehaw” and “Down to Mars Girl” you’re going to want to combine elements of western wear, like a set of pink cowgirl boots and a matching pink, sparkly cowgirl hat, along with pieces that give off a more ethereal vibe, like a holographic crop top and pair of star-covered booty shorts.
Or, if you’re looking for an outfit that you don’t mind getting a bit of festival ground dust on (which is bound to happen given the amount of people moshing along with you), you might want to try out a matching denim ensemble that you can pair with a bandana face covering and a set of leather western boots. For a bit of spacey flair, accessorize with a glittery neon hair tie or a shiny holographic choker.
However you decide to rock the space cowgirl look, you’re sure to have plenty of people tipping their hats to you!
Put On Some Neon
Move over Disneyland – music festivals are some of the happiest places on earth. In order to showcase the joy that you feel every time you get to go to a festival and see your favorite artists perform, it’s a great idea to add some neon to your closet. For instance, if you’re headed to a festival to see some super fun, energetic pop acts, you could match the mood by wearing a neon pink crop top with a pair of booty shorts and chaps with neon pink flames. If you’re not looking to go all-out neon, you can easily add pops of bright color by accessorizing with pieces of neon jewelry, or face coverings with neon prints.
Rock Out in a Super Psychedelic Look
One fashion trend that’s taken the festival scene by storm is the resurgence of vintage 60’s and 70’s styles and patterns. If you’re looking for a totally groovy outfit to wear to your next festival, you might want to try wearing a matching bralette and pants set featuring a wavy psychedelic print in a tie-dye hue. Or, embrace your inner go-go girl by wearing a pair of vintage platform vinyl boots to compliment a cute daisy patterned dress.
Pump Up Your Footwear With a Pair of Platform Boots
If you’re looking to elevate your footwear this festival season, you’re going to want to get yourself a pair of platform boots. With an elevated flat sole, platform boots give you the elevation and style of a heel paired with the comfort and arch support of a regular pair of boots. They’re the perfect combination of fashion and function that are a total must for accessorizing this festival season.
The spring music festival season is fast approaching, which means it’s time to get all the perfect outfits to wear to see your favorite artists live. If you’re looking for a great festival outfit, consider wearing a matching faux leather ensemble, embracing a space cowgirl aesthetic, accessorizing with bold neon, revamping your closet with a vintage psychedelic look, or strutting your stuff in a pair of platform boots.
