It’s that time of year again. Music Festival Season! Coachella, in Indio, CA kicked it off this past weekend, and you can pretty much catch a great line-up of shows through Austin City Limits in October.
Of course the celebrities, bloggers, fashionistas and trendsetters have been flooding social media with their boho festival style clothing. Fashion plays a HUGE part, maybe even more than the music itself, for followers of the industry. I scoured Instagram to find some of the best early looks.
So where can you find style like this? I did a quick Google search and found TONS of brands that are carrying lines just for the season. Not only are they selling clothes and accessories, but they are covering festival must-haves that you probably didn’t even know you needed!
For that, FREE PEOPLE definitely has the best selection. After attending the Maverick Music Festival, I knew I absolutely needed the first item shown. Carrying a small cross body, I had nowhere to put my sunglasses once night fell, so I had to wear them on my head under my hat!
