The whole music festival outfit game can get pretty complicated. It's not uncommon to see a slew of attendees with bohemian-inspired pieces piled on to create their look. Still, we tend to prefer festival outfits that are a little less complicated, e.g., denim shorts, sneakers, and a cool band tee. It's unfussy, comfortable, and completely appropriate for the occasion.
Of course, as every music-loving fashion girl knows, not just any band tee will do for festivals. The cut and authentically vintage look of the tee are of utmost importance, as is the band (duh). So with Coachella right around the corner (yes, already), we searched high and low for the desert-worthiest band tees (all under $200) to wear with your cutoffs, denim skirts, layered under a slip dress, etc. No matter how you choose to wear it, you're sure to be the envy of every other festivalgoer in these. And unlike other "festival gear," you'll actually want to wear these off the grounds long after the closing act has played its final encore.
