We think the fun and fashion of festival season should influence our everyday wear, which is why we partnered with
DSW to share tips for bringing the looks home.
Music festival fashion is an anything-goes kind of thing, one where you feel free to explore your personal style while rocking a flower crown — which you would never do at the office. It's an opportunity to get creative with your outfits plus find ways to dress smart while being outdoors all day and night. But your festival wardrobe doesn't have to stay tucked in your closet, reserved only for Summer weekend fun. These are festival trends you can wear without the musical backdrop.

Between the belted sundress and the fedora, this festival outfit is so chic — even with the rain boots! It's a bit of fun meets function, which you can bring to your wardrobe. Think about pairing a feminine dress with bold boots for an interesting mix.

Wear the Look: Black Rain Boots
Even when it's not raining, you can wear a pair of
rain boots for a fashionable statement. And when Spring and Summer showers hit, you'll have dry toes while being so on trend.

Sneakers and Skirts
This is a trend we're seeing everywhere — including festivals. It's a
comfortable look that your feet will love, which makes it so smart to incorporate into your Summer rotation.

Wear the Look: White Sneakers
You may be teleported back to your youth with memories of desperately trying to keep new white kicks clean, but going with a sturdy fabric, like leather, makes
white sneakers stand the test of time.

A sheer dress goes over anything, which is cool and comfortable when hitting the festival scene. And you can bring the look home by layering a long, sheer skirt over a mini for a flowing look that matches with a fitted tee and blazer at the office. Pair with wedge sandals, and you have a finished outfit.

Wear the Look: Wedge Sandals
wedge sandal adds height to your outfit along with some Summer attitude. And the right sandal is a shoe that can be worn all season.

Lots of Layers
Dressing in layers is a must during festival season, allowing you to adjust for the temperature. But that's an important fashion lesson, whether you're at the office or dancing your butt off. The fun of layering on a variety of prints and fabrics also works — like donning a floral scarf over a gingham dress shirt. Just get creative! And we love the big boots that balance the outfit.

Wear the Look: Boots
Finish any feminine outfit with a
western boot, which adds a touch of badassery. And a comfortable boot looks great poking out from maxi dresses or paired with cutoffs.

Fringe is back on trend and ready to enjoy the spotlight this festival season. From fringed bags to shirts to skirts, adding the detail to your wardrobe is reminiscent of the scene — while being wearable year round. Think fringed scarves or bags worn along with your favorite sundresses. And you can't deny those gladiator sandals are fierce!

Wear the Look: Classy Gladiators
You might not feel like rocking your festival-ready shoes to work, but an
elevated version of a gladiator sandal gives your outfit just an edge while still being appropriate.
