Music Festival Must Haves!


It’s almost that time of year again, where the shorts are shorter, there are flowers in everyone’s hair, and music festivals are selling out! Music festivals are probably one of my favorite things to go to. You’re outside, you can drink, there are artists performing, people are dancing like nobody’s watching,  and most of all, the outfits are stunning. The laid-back Boho style that music festivals have inspired have now been carried through to everyday wear. Plus sized fashion has finally been showcasing these types of styles and I am super excited about sharing them with you. I swear some people think we don’t go outside or something! With festivals like Coachella, Bonnaroo, and Bottle Rock coming, you have so many options and styles to choose from, you can really let your creativity flag fly. If you go for a sleek and sexy western look or more of a crocheted modern hippie, this list has all the top choices to stop any band mid-song.


From the daintiest to the edgiest I want to share with you, my top favorites and must haves for any plus size music lover this spring and summer.
High Rise shorts
High Rise shorts are a much need versatile piece for everyone’s closet. They can be easily paired with a crop or bathing suit top for a laid back look. Finally! Various styles of bottoms are available to plus size women. Some of my favorite pieces for festival season would be printed shorts like the once pictured from Alice and you.



Vintage pieces

If you have cool, funky vintage pieces, this is the best time to wear them. From frilly dresses to distressed tees, any vintage piece is sure to grab some attention. I love band t-shirts and I love that it’s a current trend to rock them for a grunge look. Stores like shoptunnelvision sell tons of vintage pieces for all sizes in their “Hotties with a Body” section. Embroidery looks to be another very popular trend this upcoming season. Embroidered dresses and tunics are perfect for a romantic boho look.

Dresses, pants, skirts, tops, print them up! I love prints. The 70’s fashion trend is still alive, well, and thrives during music festivals. From bandanna to paisley, stocking up on prints is a must. These pieces are definite statements so you can always pair them with a neutrals colored piece or, if you’re feeling extra funky, another print. Don’t hold back!


This is probably the most important part of a festival outfit, the little details.Rings are always a must. Midi rings are still trending and are essential for almost any festival look. Layer necklaces and pack on bracelets to spice up simple outfits. Chockers or harnesses are great choices when you’re feeling edgy. When choosing a bag, try a fanny pack or backpack.Your arms will get tired of a purse…trust me.


I’m so happy to see overalls back in trend! They are great with some comfy shoes and almost any tee. My favorite part of overalls is the variety of ways you can rock them . Layering is key when preparing a fit with these bad boys. Try overalls with crop tops and sneakers for a more street style look. From pants, shorts, and skirts the overall  is perfect for any daytime event.


Now that you have the material for the perfect outfit, its time to get to work! Don’t forget to always drink lots of water and bring a friend! My favorite part about going to music festivals is the different people you get to meet, so don’t be shy. You should take the chance experiment with your style and rock it proudly. Have fun and enjoy your favorite artists!
