This summer is bound to be full of great adventures to the beach or attending concerts and summer festivals with friends. The summer is perfect for staying out late, enjoying the weather, and taking in all that the warmer temperatures have to offer. If you are getting ready to head to a summer festival and you care about looking fashionable and on trend for 2017, this article will give you some ideas on how to dress and accessorize to look the part.
Most, if not all, summer festivals take place outdoors in an open field, on the beach, or in a park. Chances are that you will be walking around a great deal enjoying the various bandstands, food and beverage areas, and places to relax such as hammocks in the trees at Firefly, for example. If you are going to be walking around a great deal, it is a good idea to wear comfortable shoes. While it is often common practice to wear sandals and flip flops in warmer weather, it may not be something you want to do when attending a festival. Due to the large crowds of people, you could get stepped on by accident. Or if it rains, you do not want to be slipping and sliding in sandals or worse yet, fall and twist your ankle on your flip flops. While it may not be the most fashionable idea, be sure to wear comfortable footwear when attending a festival.
Wear lightweight, breathable clothing. It is likely that it will be blazing hot and you will want to wear clothing that will not hold in heat, will naturally soak up sweat, and may even have some spf in it. Some shirts offer spf protection which can be a great asset if you are going to be outside all day. While some of the most fashionable trends may not provide spf protection, be sure to bring along sunscreen with you and re-apply from time to time. For women, a relaxed skater dress or sundress with a pair of Seavees or Converse sneakers is a great look. For men, consider wearing a pair of cargo shorts and a shirt from your favorite band.
Bring some water with you. This may sound silly as you can purchase beverages of all types at the festival, you will be happy you planned ahead. It is likely that the food and beverage stands will have long lines that will take a great deal of time to get through. If you are enjoying yourself outside in the sun all day, it is a good idea to consistently hydrate with water. If you are interested in drinking alcohol, it is important to drink water in between drinks, especially if you are outside all day. Finding yourself without water or hydration in the middle of a festival could be quite troublesome and lead to you getting sick or worse, passing out. Be kind to yourself and bring some water along with you.
