They say fashion makes its first debut on the streets, but any festival-goer could tell you true summer styles — clothes, hair accessories, beauty, and all — emerge at the season’s hottest music venues. Concerts are the runway, and you’re the model.
And while donning looks like fringy bohemian flowerchild and grungy punk rocker will always be a classic choice, experimenting with new trends is all a part of the festival fun! If you’re looking for some inspiration, Foray Collective is a great place to start. The influencer-based shopping network features some of the most savvy fashionistas out there piecing together effortless ensembles, and they’ve already shown us some of the trends we can expect to see this festival season.
If you’re heading to a festival soon, try incorporating these must-have duds into your look. And if you can’t get enough of fest(ival)yle, read on to learn about how to get a first look at what’s en vogue with VIP access to an exclusive party coming up soon!
Hair: Make it Magical
Forget elaborate braids and flower crowns, and instead steal the attention with some pastel highlights in your tresses. L’Oréal Paris’ semi-permanent Colorista products are a great way to experiment with some color yet still be able to wash it out in four to eight shampoos.
Lips, Eyes, and Face: A Pop of Pigment
Whether you’re aiming for dramatic or subtle, don’t be afraid of bright colors. And if you want to play up fun palettes, L’Oréal Paris Infallible Paints has everything you need! For the eyes, try an electric shade like the Intrepid Teal eyeliner or rock a duo combination eye shadow like the blue-pink Aqua Aura set for a cotton candy aesthetic. For lips, go bold with a hue such as Lilac Lust or daring Navy Spy. And for face, pick any warm, rosy shade in the Paints’ blush spectrum to blend your look together seamlessly for all-around high impact color.
Sunglasses: Rims are In
Big and bold is best for standout sunnies. Find a pair of stunners with unique frames, elegant embellishments, and tinted spectacles for extra pizzazz.
Jewelry: Nice Threads
Threaded tassel and sphere drop earrings are large enough to make a statement but still conveniently lightweight.
Top: Tying Together a Redefined Shawl
The wrap-tied, flare-sleeved breezy knot top is all the rage right now, and an eyelet romper or delicate peek-a-boo number are just the beginning.
Bottoms: Flowy for the Win
Choosing a relaxed fit is a great way to stay comfortable all day, and high-waisted, wide leg pants are the way to go.
Footwear: Pedal to the Metal
Ditch the stilettos and opt for some funky flats with a metallic finish so you can really shine.
