Over the last few years music festivals have taken summer by storm. You can find them in cities all over the world from Illinois to Africa! These festivals provide an outlet for expression to many of the festival goers. Whether you visit the Afropunk Fest in New York or Coachella in California you can express your favorite music genre, beliefs, or culture through fashion. Even though fashion is an expression, sometimes we feel limited to how much we can express ourselves without looking like a sore thumb in the crowd. If you need an excuse to break away from the norms, taking a trip to festival would be the perfect escape. Everyone loves a good vacation with music and fun, but being able to play dress up is always icing on the cake. Here are some super dope looks that we’ve spotted at this years festivals.
