I’ve only attended two music festivals, but after my first experience, I learned that planning out my outfits ahead of time is just as crucial as planning which artists to see (why must my favorites always overlap?). This year, my packing list includes a heavy dose of what I'm predicting will be a top trend all festival season long: snakeskin. I don't suggest ditching all those leopard prints you scooped up this past fall (in fact, please keep them for years and years), but snakeskin is looking to be the animal print of S/S 19.
Conveniently, H&M's Divided collection comes to my rescue yet again with a huge offering of super-stylish snakeskin pieces (plus a bunch of other festival fashion must-haves) I'll be swooping up before driving down to the desert this year. From a dress I'll wear as a cover-up at a pool party to the convenient crossbody that won't get in the way while I'm dancing to Ariana's set (look for me at the front of the crowd belting every last word), these are the 13 things I'm really excited to wear this festival season.
This crossbody is just big enough to hold the essentials (phone, sunnies, sunscreen, credit card) and just small enough not to be annoyingly in the way.
Sandals comfortable enough for walking around festival grounds all day.
Turn this tunic into a cool cover-up by wearing it unbuttoned.
For when it's really really hot out.
Did I even go to a music festival if I didn't post a pic in a crop top?
I love that this dress is fun on its own but would also look super cool with a tie-dye top, band tee, or snakeskin-print shirt underneath.
Don't underestimate the versatility of a denim skirt.
This snakeskin dress is the perfect unexpected layering piece.
Throw this over the above. Just don't forget to haphazardly roll up the sleeves.
This hat will look cool paired with Western-inspired booties.
I'd probably undo a couple buttons and tie a knot at the bottom.
I'll obviously be wearing this sweatshirt during Ariana's set in honor of her new song "NASA."
I pack a plain white tee on every trip for good measure.
