*A very special thank you to Amazon for sponsoring this post!
Festival season is HERE; can you believe it?! Fun fact: I started my blog almost exactly two years ago to this day, where I covered Festival Season 2016 trends and some of my favorite looks. I’ve never actually gone at that point, but was dying to go after drooling over everyone’s gorgeous outfits.
A year passed, and I finally committed to going last year – and let me tell you, it was even better than I expected. I will say, though, I learned a lot from last year that I’ll carry into this year. Read on for my top 5 tips to get style-ready for festival season!
Top 5 Style Tips for Festival Season
- Bring comfortable shoes.
You’re going to be doing a TON of walking. And simply forget about bringing sandals. Your poor feet will get trampled at the shows in minutes. Bring some good, sturdy boots that will last you through the weekend (and beyond!). I absolutely LOVE these ones by Steve Madden. No joke, I will be wearing them with every single outfit this weekend. They’re just that good.
- Come prepared with a bandana (or 5).
Last year’s biggest rookie mistake was failing to bring my bandanas to the shows. With all the dust that you inhale and the screaming you’ll be doing at night, you’ll quickly get struck with “Festival Cough” – and quick. Prevent this from happening by packing some cute bandanas that will double up as an accessory and a mask.
- Wear an outfit that you can transition from day to night.
Festival season gets BUSY. You’re going to be running around from parties to brunches, to appointments and –of course– to the shows. The last thing you want to worry about is going back to your hotel to change outfits. You might think you have time, but you just don’t want to risk it.
- If you’re going the dress route, short is best.
I only say this because I wore mostly maxi dresses last year that got destroyed from tripping on them and from others stepping on them. I ended up tying the ends in a knot to save what was left! Don’t get me wrong, I’m still going to shoot a couple looks in some gorgeous maxis, but the short route is the best route in the desert.
- Amazon is going to be your best friend.
Last year, I made the mistake of ordering everything from everywhere and was scrambling to track all of my orders and pieces to my outfits the night before we headed to the desert. This year, I headed straight to Amazon to not only find all the pieces I need to complete my festival season wardrobe – but to also stock up on essentials like sunscreen, my trust Camelbak, and last-minute beauty items.
