It’s no secret that warm weather has become synonymous with festival season. Just about everywhere you look, you’ll find a music festival.
And festival style, while all in good fun, can be a little disheartening at times: an overload of too short daisy dukes, crop tops, mesh, and all of the neon bikinis. When did festival dress code become the equivalent of dental floss? We found this to be troubling, so we did a bit of investigating.
What we found? Good news! There are, in fact, plenty of festival outfits that are tasteful. Many of which (gasp!) we might actually wear again to dinner, drinks, the grocery store–you know, in every day life too.
Open back beauty
Show some skin in a tasteful way like this Lollapalooza goer with a strappy, open back maxi dress. (Plus, she gets extra points for staying hydrated with Vita Coco!)

Another example of “just the right amount” of skin–this flowy and feminine number isn’t your average romper! It would look just as great on a dinner date as it does at the festival.

Shorts and Chucks go together like peanut butter and jelly! We love how this festival goer added a bow to make this tomboy combo a little more girly.
Casual, comfortable chic

From the festival to the beach, park, or a summer bike ride, we can’t think of a casual setting this outfit wouldn’t be great for.

If tight crop tops aren’t your thing, go with a loose version instead for a result that is on-trend and ultra-flattering.
Peek-a-boo matching set

What could be cuter than this polka dot matching set on blogger Lauren Nolan? The sweet print tones down the peek-a-boo crop for a retro feel we can’t get enough of.

This gorgeous white midi proves a modest dress is anything but frumpy.

Form fitting maxi

Unlike many maxis, which are loose and flowing (and give you that “Is there actually a waist somewhere in there?” feeling), this version is modest and still form fitting to show off all of those curves in all the right places.

Colorful, bold, and best of all–lightweight and breezy! We love how this Lolla attendee rocked her dress with sneakers for a tribal tomboy look.
