5 Trending Festival Fashions

With yesterday's 90 degree day in Chicago, there's no doubt we're on the edge of our seats for festival season. Kicking back to great music with great friends in the beaming Chicago sun sounds just about picture perfect to us. But while jamming at parks around the city is quite a treat, we must admit we love seeing what is worn to festivals just about as much as whose playing (okay... maybe more... but don't tell the musicians).

So how do you turn heads this festival season, you ask? Today we bring you five trending pieces that you just have to make truly you this summer.

The Crop Top

It's almost a no-brainer, right? It's no secret that stores everywhere seem to have at least five crop tops on the shelves. We've shown you how to wear it five ways, and now we're telling you it will be your best friend for festivals. It's such an easy piece... just pair with high-waisted shorts and you instantly look great. Not to mention, it's also an amazing piece for keeping cool in said beaming sun.

Lace & Crochet


Not only is all-white-everything the hottest thing right now, everyone's especially loving lace and crochet looks for festival season. Be it a crochet top and bag or lovely lace shorts and a headpiece, we're crazy for these textured trends. They can add so much femininity to any outfit. Festivals are the perfect time to try it out.

This pant trend is a super fun one to experiment with. The cropped length is perfect for festivals, especially if you're not all about showing skin. Pair them with a pair of pool sliders for a cool and laid back look. These pants can even take you back to the crop top trend, as the typically rise as high as trousers. Try them in all different funky patterns and colors to spice up your fun-filled weekend.

We are loving kimonos this season. This globally inspired trend is so perfect for festivals, especially for those girls who love to layer. Pair it with distressed denim (classic festival fashion) and a pair of matte sunnies (so on trend) for a perfect festival look. With fun prints, colors, fringe elements and more, a great kimono can easily be your go-to statement item this summer.

Chunky Sandals


Bold accessories are everything and can totally take your look to the next level. Chunky sandals are super hot this season. Not only are they so so cute but they are also so comfortable because they actually offer your poor feet some support, making them convenient for festivals all summer long. If you are really looking to make a statement, pair these fab kicks with an equally bold handbag while keeping the rest of your look simple so these pieces can really stand out!
