Striking the perfect balance between fashion and function in a summer music festival outfit is one of the upper echelons of modern styling.
Especially with one of the biggest summer festivals in Western Canada, FVDED in the Park, just around the corner, keeping cool while looking hot is a key juxtaposition that everyone attending is looking to achieve.
Get a dose of style inspiration from the outfits we pulled together featuring some of the hottest summer music festival fashion trends of 2017 before dancing the weekend away to performances by The Chainsmokers, Wiz Khalifa, PartyNextDoor, and Dillon Francis in Holland Park.
Make like a Kanye West music video and sport a comfortable sports bra and jort combo this summer ladies! Pair the outfit with sneakers, a dad hat, and a light bomber jacket for when the sun goes down, and you’re golden.
For men, jerseys of all types are a big plus this summer. From basket ball jerseys to baseball, aim for one that’s made from a lighter fabric for extra points in breathability. Add a slick pair of joggers and sneakers to complete the outfit.
When working with colour, it’s best to choose just one key piece in an outfit to highlight while leaving the rest of the outfit neutral. When it comes summer music festivals, the brighter the colour, the better! Go for a neon body suit or cover-up to give the outfit some oomph.
An easy way to add a little extra to an outfit without going overboard is by mixing textures. Mesh and velour, sequins and denim, or cotton and spandex used in tandem with a bright pop of colour can make a good outfit, an amazing one. Take chances with your festival fashion!
The best part about music festivals that don’t require camping? Besides the fact that showers and hair dryers are regularly available is that style isn’t limited to what can be carried into camp! So yes, wear that burgundy suede jacket and curl your hair for the gods, the world is your oyster.
If you have a flashy shirt or jacket that you’re not too sure about, summer music festival season is the time to break it out. Just remember to be confident, flash your pearly whites, and rock your style, however you choose to show it.
