Sequins, psychedelic prints, fringe and all sorts of things abound during the Y2K fashion festival season. These fashion trends captivate the fun of these events, so it’s no surprise that visitors flock to the festival to create show-stopping entrances. Take, for example, Harry Styles, who wowed the crowd when he came on stage in a colorful sequin Gucci jumpsuit at the 2022 Cochela Festival, or the statefair of Billy Hilsa in Conrad biker shorts and shirts printed with graphic motifs. Meanwhile, Doza Cat’s platform boots and studded shoes prove that accessories are everything.
The street style stars at Coachella have also provided significant looks, including casual dresses, crochet minidresses and colorful halter tops. While you don’t have to follow any particular festive fashion trend, the following style hacks will help you create memorable Bonnaroo costumes. Let your personality shine, you are styling the maximalist piece or keeping it to a minimum with comfortable basics.
In front of footwear, flat sandals or chunky sneakers usually guarantee comfort, which is essential when you are standing in the sun for hours on end. Platform boots or low heels, meanwhile, take your outfit to new heights – just make sure you can walk on them for long periods of time. And don’t forget the headwear: a wide-brimmed hat or baseball cap will stylishly protect you from the sun. As jewelry, stack your favorite necklace or bracelet to adorn a neutral outfit. Finish with a bag that holds your essentials (sunscreen, water, phone charger) and you’ll feel comfortable carrying it late into the night, whether it’s a backpack, everyday tote or shoulder or crossbody bag.
