Your guide to the best festival looks this summer

Summer has finally arrived, and with it the festival season. Electronic music, rock, indie...whatever your musical tastes or geographical location, there will soon be a festival near you. Choosing a festival look is, for some, just as important, if not more, than the lineup for the festival in question.

If this season you are determined to immerse yourself into the throngs of the crowds and melodic magic that make up summer festivals, we want to help you in your journey to find the outfit the best represents your style.

They keys to a succesful outfit are to: 1) bet on comfort (sneakers being your best friend in this case), 2) take into account trends (without losing sight of your own taste/personality), and 3) do not forget your accessories.

We've compiled a selection of festival worthy pieces for three of our favorite summer festivals: Primavera Sound, Sonar, and Mad Cool. But there are almost as many festivals, a there are musical tastes. 



Primavera Sound



It is the quintessential festival of Barcelona, and is one of the most anticipated by people from all over the world. Music, fashion, art, and a massive dose of good vibes come together on the shores of the Mediterranean Sea, creating one of the most magical events in Barcelona. To kickstart the list, we present two looks for this special event.



Primavera Sound Look Men

For men, a floral two-piece ensemble (trend of the season). Presented by NikeLab, with sneakers also from the brand: gold Air Max Plus. And adding the finishing touches - aviator styled sunglasses by Reframe.



Primavera Sound Look Women

For women, we've based our choice on two-toned mix between black and rosy colors. It is a set of simple pieces, that when combined create an explosion of style. It is uncomplicated and minimalist, but with all the personality needed for an epic festival lookCrop top and shorts by NikeLab, mini corduroy backpack (the fabric of the season!) by Converse, and platform sandals by Suicoke; a brand of Japanese footwear that has been all the rage this summer. Pair oval-shaped sunglasses by Reframe with translucent lenses and in the same tone as the shorts, and you've got yourself a chic outfit.



Sonar



The festival where the most cutting-edge and innovative technology of the market is combined with the best sound and electronic music artists - it is the date where the most risky and dynamic looks are put on display. 


Sónar Festival Look Men

A total black look is always a good choice, and even better for Sonar's festival grounds. That's the baseline we've set in choosing our men's outfit for this festival: elastic shorts by NikeLab, and Undercover t-shirt with green psychedelic details, which is sure to turn heads (considering that it is the only pop of color given to the outfit). Last but not least, some Nike Air More Uptempo, and bold sunglasses (these by Wilde Sunglasses) to complete the look.



Sónar Festival Look Women

For women, we've opted for a look at the hand of designer, Alexander Wang, where red is the undisputed champion. With this mini sports dress you'll stand out from the crowd, without missing out on comfort. Add matching sneakers and some squared-off sunglasses by Kuboraum, each of which will be your perfect companions this festival season. 



Mad cool



One of the summer's most awaiting musical stages arrives Spain's capital more loaded than ever. This event is chock-full of many diverse musical styles, like techno and rock, for just one event. Whether it's dancing to the rhythm of a Richie Hawtin session, moving the cool beat of Jack Johnson's chords, or singing your favorite Artic Monkeys song, we want you to be confident in your outfit choice. Here are some suggestions:



Mad Cool Festival Look Men

For men, we've chosen this laid-back outfit. First up, an animal print shirt by Stammbaumwhich stands out against light-washed jean shorts by American designer, John Elliott. Up next to bat, these summery-vibed camel colored sandals by Suicoke.



Mad Cool Festival Look Women

For women, we've chosen some blue shorts straight from the latest collection of Fenty Puma, which can be combined with your favorite bikini top. For an added festival effect, we recommend pairing the outfit with these colorful Air Max 98. This outfit would not be complete without one of the latest styled trends, minituare styled sunglasses by Kuboraum.
