Fashion Flashback: Festival Style Then & Now

Festival Style Then & Now

Music and fashion go together like Simon & Garfunkel, like Sonny & Cher, like Bey & Jay! And that certainly couldn’t be more apparent than during festival season. For decades, music lovers have flocked to the fields to watch live music, feel some good vibes and, of course, make a style statement. That said, we were inspired to take a look back to the beginnings of festival fashion — just to see how much (or how little) has changed.

Bikini tops were basically a second skin in the Woodstock days. And while swimsuits can still be spotted on concert grounds, our new favorite festival must-have is the bodysuit. This one-piece wonder makes rocking high-waist shorts easier and chicer than ever. Plus, the fun patterns and bold colors are sure to rule the summer scene.

The unofficial uniform of dancing in the sun, peasant dresses are a festival staple. The free-spirited crowd of the 1960s loved pleats and bell sleeves, while contemporary hipsters totally dig the bare shoulder trend. Add the perfect nod to retro style by rocking a pair of round sunnies.
