What to Wear to Stagecoach (& Every Country Music Festival)

If you like Thomas Rhett better than Radiohead, and Maddie & Tae better than The xx, you probably chose Stagecoach Country Festival over Coachella this year. Good choice! One of the many advantages of Stagecoach is that dressing for it is a lot easier—you don't have to worry about having the craziest, most innovative look, because it's all about the classics. But if you're scrambling to put together your outfits for the weekend, here's a handy guide. I gotchu, fam.

What to wear

Accessories

Bandana ($9.50 at ASOS)

Because it looks country, but also to cover your face from sandstorms.

Hat ($14.90 at Amazon)

It's a country festival; do I really need to explain why you need this?

Boots ($139.95 at Zappos)

A necessity.

American Flag Fanny Pack ($24.95 at Amazon)

Because 'Merica.

Tattoo Sheets ($20 at Flash Tat)

Face the facts: no festival is complete without flash tats.

Sunglasses ($7.90 at Forever 21)

It's the DESERT dude, you need sunglasses.

Tops

Plaid Shirt ($22.99 at Target)

Do. Not. Leave the house without this.

Blouse ($78 at REVOLVE)

Ruffles are where it's at.

Tank ($14 at Brandy Melville)

Oh yeah no, crop tops are a thing.

Tank ($24.99+ at Etsy)

Show your love for the music (and the Blake).

Tank Top ($19.99 at Etsy)

Let your shirt do the talking.

Pocket Tank ($19.95 at Etsy)

Because you're a "sweet, little, beautiful, wonderful, perfect all-American girl."

Jackets

Most people just wear their flannel as a jacket when the chilly desert night sets in, but these guys will do the trick if you tend to get really cold:

Suede Jacket ($59.99 at Old Navy)

Denim Jacket ($29.90 at Forever 21)

Embroidered Faux Leather Jacket ($98 at Forever 21)

Bottoms

Suede and denim are the Stagecoach fabrics of choice.

Denim Skirt ($49 at Lulu's)

Denim Shorts ($24.99 at H&M)

Suede Skirt ($40 at Lulus)

Faux Suede Shorts ($80 at Zappos)

Pants ($39.95 at American Eagle)

If you must wear pants, make 'em hippie pants.

Rompers & Dresses

Romper ($52 at Lulu's)

This one is called "Star Spangled," so it's meant to be.

Romper ($174 at Planet Blue)

Coachella vibes aren't totally off limits—plus, how good would this look with your cowboy hat?

Shirt Dress ($56 at Lulus)

Denim without the hassle.

Dress ($168 at Free People)

Suede, dress edition.

If all else fails, take a cue from these pretty people:
