Festival Outfit Ideas

Festival Outfit Inspiration

It’s that time of year again and festival season is just around the corner, so this week I wanted to share some outfit inspiration with you. As you might have recently seen on my Instagram (@Retroflame), I am heading to Coachella again this year and I couldn’t be more excited! Last year was my first time going and it definitely lived up to my expectations so I couldn’t help myself but re-book for this year! We just received our tickets in the post last week so I have finally started browsing the net looking for some outfits and I thought it would be helpful for any of you also attending festivals if I shared some of the nicer things I’ve come across…


Dresses are definitely my go to for any festival I attend. They are a quick and easy option and very fun to accessorize. I will always opt for a dress/playsuit if I am going for more of a boho look. Simply pair it with a fedora, some layered necklaces & boots and you’re all set. I love this backless option from boohoo..


Another festival essential is a cool pair of shorts – you just can’t go wrong! I always plan one of my outfits for a festival around a pair of shorts because I really love that look! Dressing them up with a cool double buckle belt and the right top/ kimono makes for the ultimate and original festival attire! I need to get these leather ones for Coachella…


T- shirts have made such a comeback this year so I can definitely see them being very big at all of the festivals coming up throughout the summer, along with bodysuits & off the shoulder tops. Last year I wore a top with shorts along with a neck scarf and it was such an easy and effortless outfit but with the right accessories, a perfect festival look! You could definitely re-create the look with this top from ASOS…


Without a doubt, when it comes to festival dressing your accessories are the most important part of your look! You can make anything you have in your wardrobe look festival ready with the right accessories. My favourite go-to accessories for festivals are Sunglasses, stacked rings and chokers. Topshop is one of the best places to pick up festival bits – I will definitely be purchasing these rings for Coachella and sunglasses similar to these


…And last but not least, Jackets! Let’s face it, the weather can always be unpredictable for a festival, especially in Ireland, so you’re best to be prepared for any scenario. Luckily for us, nowadays there is a really good choice of cool jacket options for festivals, so it doesn’t need to ruin your outfit, only add to it! I’m obsessed with this oversized suede jacket along with these other options..

I really hope you enjoyed this post guys and gained some inspiration for any festivals you have coming up. It truly is one of my favourite occasions to dress for so I’m excited to get outfit planning. Be sure to keep an eye out on my Instagram (@retroflame) & Snapchat (@Retroflame1) for a peek at my purchases & prep! Have a great weekend!
