The New Festival Trend That Needs to Happen IRL

Apr 16 2014 - 6:00am

When it comes to the real-life style spotted at a music festival [1], you see everything (take it from us, we're there! [2]). Some of it, like floral headbands and fringed boots [3], are pieces we've gotten used to expecting, but every so often, we're surprised. And while there's nothing groundbreaking about off-the-shoulder anything, it feels fresh right now.

After we saw Katy Perry [4], Julianne Hough and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley rocking the look, as both a top and dress, we were hooked! The look is comfortable to wear and undeniably sexy. Shop some of our favorite styles by scrolling down, so you can try the look all Spring.

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley

For a fashion party hosted around the music festival, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley picked a simple white Kenzo minidress with voluminous sleeves that were worn off the shoulder. The laid-back, breezy look is perfect for both the festival vibe and general Spring weather. She finished it off with Cher Coulter for JewelMint earrings and a nude pair of sandals that complemented the dress, rather than distracting from it.

Katy Perry

For a day of events in the Coachella Valley, including a stop at Lacoste's big fashion to-do, Katy Perry [7] opted for a breezy white crop top and printed midi skirt. Flatforms and a fedora kept things comfortable, while white-rimmed shades and a crossbody bag fit in with the two-tone ensemble.

Julianne Hough

For a pool party, Julianne Hough skipped the regular bikini-and-cover-up combo in favor of a more polished blouse and pair of shorts. With an off-the-shoulder fit and bell sleeves that reached her elbows, her top had a boho vibe that was kept from being too hippie, thanks to the platform sandals, shorts, and Rebecca Minkoff by Shane Baum sunglasses.
