Festival Style Guide

2 April 2014

You’ve rallied your girlfriends, booked your flights and hostels, and Instagrammed your tickets when they arrived; now it’s onto arguably the most important (and probably most daunting) part of festival season: your wardrobe. But fear not: We here at Rebecca Minkoff have you covered head-to-toe this time of year. Read on for three rockin’ looks that will take you from day to night with ease – and plenty of flair.

Rock Steady
Rocking out like there’s no tomorrow to OutKast at Coachella, or bopping along to Foster the People at Governor’s Ball? There is nothing more practical (while still staying fashionable) than a bright cross-body bag or a sleek backpack to keep your hands free. Stay cool with a graphic tee, our breezy Pablo mesh top, or our airy Mara Jumpsuit Short. The Vesey denim cut-offs add easy tomboy glamour, and studded Santana gladiator sandals are made for walking – and plenty of dancing.

Boho Chic
For a weekend of indie rock at Bonnaroo or 10 days’ worth of cultural feasting at the New Orleans Jazz Festival, look no further than festival season’s ultimate sidekicks: the flowy frock or the effortless jumpsuit. Turn up the volume with punchy accessories like our fun Marlowe clutch, or dial it down with some tried-and-true fringe. Inject some feminine flair with comfortable wedges or show-stopping straps. Throw on our floral ABC Jacket for a flirty and fun look for when the evening chill hits, and you’ll be the (fashion) star of the show this season.

Casual Cool
Whether you’re sipping wine and nibbling on sliders at Outsidelands or biking around the Lollapalooza grounds, you’re going to want to be comfortable (and cute) all day long. You can’t go wrong with playful tank tops and colorful accessories together with grungy denim cut-offs and cool-girl studs. Finish off with classic skimmers like our Gavin Too espadrille, or make a statement with the edgy Talia Too – the choice is yours.
