Brace yourselves: This year, festival-goers can expect what is rumoured to be the best festival season yet. Each year more events and artists are added to the lineup and music-lovers everywhere (including myself) couldn’t be happier. In preparation for the many festivals we plan on attending, we’ve scoured the internet to come up with some new outfit inspiration to get us through the festival circuit–or at least create a good #ootd post.
In addition to the classic festival pieces like bell bottoms and vintage floral skirts and dresses, there are certain necessary additions to the pile that we need to make. These pieces are edgier than the boho chic influences we have seen in recent years. For 2016, we’re seeing a regeneration of the classic rock style of the ’60s and early-’70s, so keep Stevie Nicks and this list in mind when shopping for your new essentials.
Enter the badlands with a western-style leather belt. A great belt can change any outfit and this one is popping up all over the place. Throw it over your old floral skirt or your kick-ass denim cut offs, the added detail in the bulky buckle will add a twist to those old pieces that we both know you’ve been photographed in before. The bigger, the heavier, the better.
