12 Music Festival Outfit Ideas to Wear to Coachella, Gov Ball, and More

Music festivals are nothing short of an all-out dressing affair. If you’re headed to one, you’re probably busy planning the perfect outfit to see and be seen, gather enough material for an Instagram carousel, and match the vibes of your favorite artists. In the past few festival seasons, we’ve seen the style pendulum swing from extravagant ‘fit checks to too-cool, unfussy ensembles, and the past year of all-out event dressing has us predicting an innovative season ahead. To prepare to dance along to all the emerging artists and longstanding favorites this year has in store, we’re looking to the stars to plan our outfits for the entire season—from Coachella to Governors Ball and even Lollapalooza. Ahead, discover 12 music festival outfit ideas to wear while catching your favorite artists, complete with product picks.

Bright and Bejeweled

This Eras Tour glam perfectly embodies Dylan Mulvaney’s playful style, and you’d better believe we’re taking notes. Here, a mini dress strikes the ideal balance of shimmer and sheerness with a touch of girlhood charm, which pairs seamlessly with sparkly glam and friendship bracelets for a pop extravaganza.

Sunny Sheer

We’ve had our eye on buttery shades of yellow this season, and this sunny number on Charli XCX doesn’t disappoint. Even better? The breezy, lightweight fabric will keep you cool through hot summer sets—without compromising any style points.

Pretty in Plaid

Sabrina Carpenter wears a brown plaid vest and skirt set, fishnet tights with bows, black shoulder bag, and braided pink dip-dyed pigtails

Muted plaids might not immediately come to mind when packing for a summer music festival, but that’s exactly what makes this combo so striking. Don’t be afraid to mix and match patterns for a truly punk-rock ensemble. This one doubles as a great look for Olivia Rodrigo’s Guts World Tour.

Lovely Lace

Adut Akech wears a black sheer bodysuit with stars, patterned sarong miniskirt, black cowboy boots, and black cowboy hat

There’s an art to staying chic through encore performances and desert heat waves. The formula is simple: A black lace bodysuit stands as an elevated base for a patterned wrap mini skirt, while monochromatic accessories (including a cowgirl spring-ready hat and boots) keep the entire look cohesive.

SHOP THE LOOK

Fresh in Fuchsia

Paloma Elsesser wears a pink sequined top, string bikini bottom, khaki pants, and gold earrings

Bookmark this outfit as one that’s brimming with dance-floor energy. Let some side-tie bikini bottoms peek out of your cargo pants’ waistband for a fun, modern spin on early aughts trends.

SHOP THE LOOK

Total Romantic

Abby Bible wears lace pants, a black tank top, and a rose choker
@THEABBYBIBLE / INSTAGRAM

Rosette appliqués are still having a moment—and these days, they lean a bit more edgy. Here, this romantic accessory adds a gothic sweetness to an all-black outfit comprising a flowy, ruffled top and sheer lace pants.

SHOP THE LOOK

Day-to-Night Bohemian

SZA wears a black bodysuit, flowy blue dress, varsity jacket, and hiking boots
@SZA / INSTAGRAM

You’ve heard it time and time again: Layers are essential to staying comfortable in any festival look, especially when staying out late into the evening. This sporty-sweet ensemble from SZA combines a flowy dress with a fitted bodysuit, complete with a statement varsity jacket on top.

SHOP THE LOOK

Futuristic Florals

Rina Sawayama wears a white dress, shield sunglasses, and strappy heeled sandals
@RINASONLINE / INSTAGRAM

We’d hardly call florals for spring (or summer) groundbreaking. Paired with on-trend shield sunglasses, however, a sweet floral dress feels impossibly fresh. Keep that momentum going with graphic shapes, like these funky structural heels.

SHOP THE LOOK

Dreamy Blues

If Faye Webster and Suki Waterhouse dominated your Spotify Wrapped in 2023, rest assured there’s an equally ethereal look to match their vocals. We love this feather-light tulle from Hill House, which pairs perfectly with some tougher accessories.

SHOP THE LOOK

Rhinestone Renaissance

Crystal-studded skirt sets are a no-brainer at festivals this year. Beyond our memories of the crowds at Beyoncé’s Renaissance tour last year, we’ve also spotted Megan Thee Stallion rock sweet rhinestone body art to accessorize an otherwise all-metallic ensemble.

SHOP THE LOOK

Western Wardrobe

If “Texas Hold ‘Em” holds a dedicated spot in your music rotation, we’re willing to bet you’re behind the superstar’s recent country-inspired aesthetics, too. Horse girl attire will be an affair at this years’ festivals, so expect to see a blend of western apparel and more modern accessories.

SHOP THE LOOK

Sweet Sundress

There’s no shame in keeping things seamless and simple, as Madison Beer demonstrates here. Try pairing a vintage-inspired chemise with sturdy, low-heeled black boots—key for trekking across uneven gravel and grassy venues—alongside a practical tote.
