Festival season is officially upon us — is your flower crown ready? As an avid concert-goer, I’ve learned that festival shopping is truly an art form. It requires scouring the internet for outfits that are equal parts comfy and chic — with accessories that should be multi-purpose, and strategically selected. After all, you can only fit so many items into a concert-sized backpack. Choose wisely.
Another important consideration is cost. If I’m already paying for concert tickets, lodging, transportation, and an egregious amount of alcohol AND food, I’d prefer to avoid taking out a loan for three pairs of woven shorts. To help you with your festival fashion quest, I’ve compiled a list of my favorite places, on the internet, to shop for affordable concert-ready gear.
Cotton On has trendy and comfortable outfits for everyone. If you’re trying to pull off the ‘effortlessly cool’ look, this is the store to help you accomplish that.
