Festival season doesn’t have to leave you broke, check out these 10 money saving festival style tips so that you can have fun and stay stylish for your next festival.
From Coachella, Lollapalooza to other music festivals can be super pricey. Just to attend and stay cheap at the most popular festival Coachella can cost around $593 on top of the price of any flights or train travel. In general, most of music festivals are lasting 2 to 3 days and offers individual basic one day tickets price on average of $399.
Make sure that your festival style always stays fresh and on point! The key to success, is sticking to a budget and rotating your gear as much as possible! I have a collection of accessories I tap into on a regular basis.
1. Recycle Festival Fashions
It’s not worth spending top dollars on clothes from name brands when you intend on wearing them one time; and perhaps store it in your closet till the next year. Try getting together with a group of friends or organize a Facebook group online; get everyone to bring their old festival outfits and accessories to an arranged clothing swap.
2. Shop Your Closet
It’s perfect time to wear the things in your closet that you don’t normally get to show off. You can skip the mall shopping and dig out those forgotten treasures and fun pieces from your closet instead! You never know what you will come up with 😉
3. Sell Last Year Festival Outfits Through ThredUp
You can sell your festival outfits from last year and earn cash! ThredUp makes it easy to recycle and you can swap with festival lover brands like Free People for this festival season. Simply order a pre-paid shipping bag, fill it with clothes and leave it on your doorstep.
Pro tip: it takes couple of weeks to get it done, so give yourself plenty of time.
4. Keep A Layer Of Clothing
Layers will be your best friends in the festivals. No matter how cold it gets during the evening time; bring an extra hoodie or oversized jumper to provide relief as you stand and watch early morning shows. Pack plentiful amount of plaid shirts and lightweight knits so you can tie around the waist or shoulder when the weather warms up. A neckerchief and lightweight scarf will also be great to stay stylish and have for chilly nights!
5. Get A Timeless, Show Stopping Accessory
Instead of buying a whole new outfit, purchase show stopping accessories such as hat, flower crown, and chainmail neckerchief and pair it with your favorite lace kimono and denim shorts! Well made ethical accessories last longer than outfits from fast fashion, I promise!
6. Hit Local Thrift Stores
Are you a big vintage thrift shopper like I am? Actually going through local thrift stores, you can find cool vintage denim shorts, sheer maxi dresses, and lace crop tops for cheap price and find trendy festival fashions.
7. Look For Coupons and Sales
You can also flip through coupons and shop the sales to score better deals on clothing. The extra finding will be worth the boost to your wardrobe.
8. Pick Best Shoes For Festival
Walking, dancing, standing, and stomping the ground with long lasting shoes that won’t cause blisters is must have. The most popular shoes for Instagrammable fashionista shoes are booties, lace-up gladiators, slides, sneakers, and flatforms.
9. Invest On Fannypack
Want to be hands free at the festival? You’ll want to carry drinks or throw hands in the air like you just don’t care, invest on stylish compact fannypack so that you don’t look like tourists.
10. Tights Will Become Your Best Friends
Showing off your sexy legs seems to be most common festival style look. When it rains and the temperature drops, we all need tights. They are easy to wash, quick to dry and small to pack and surprisingly warm. Pack woolly or opaque tights to wear under shorts and summer dresses on cooler days.
