By  March 14, 2014

Camilla Belle and Kate Bosworth are masters of boho-chic, while Drew Barrymore and Miley Cyrus are boho-grunge pros. Despite the subtle differences in their aesthetics, there’s no denying that each of the ladies wins at the music-festival style game. To achieve flawless festival looks on par with such style stars, all you need to do is work on incorporating a handful of these music-festival staples.


Fringed Anything: From boots to bags and sandals to tees, a little bit of fringe will give your festival ensemble a whole lot of flair.


Fedora: Whether it’s made of straw or khaki, a fedora will not only protect your face from the sun, but will look stylish too!


Crop Tops: The ubiquitous runway trend had its start at music festivals and is therefore adorable when paired with high-wasted shorts, cutoffs, or a maxiskirt.


Cutoff Shorts: They’re always sexy, but casual. Heat up the look with some knee-high gladiator sandals.


Tank Tops: Try a neutral color paired with bright jewelry and standout shoes.


Long Necklaces: Lengthier necklaces look more relaxed, and that’s the vibe of a live music festival. Gold, silver, rose gold—anything will work. Add charms for a more feminine look.


Turquoise and Coral Jewelry: The perfect addition to any outfit is the little pop of color that results from a piece of jewelry with brightly hued stones.


Side Satchel Purses: Fit all your necessities into a little side pouch that’s easy to walk with and keep track of.


Feathered Hair: In addition to braids, hair feathers just scream “music festival.” Sport a couple, or pile on a whole bunch for a totally hippie vibe.


Ray-Bans: Whether you prefer the classic Wayfarer or metal-frame aviators, it’s safe to say that Ray-Bans are the cherry on top of any music-festival outfit.
