Shades + Garb Fit for Festival Style

Warm-weather festival season has begun, guys ‘n’ gals! Today marks the first stint of Coachella, with another on the pipeline next weekend. To boot, lots of other similar affairs, from Bonnaroo to Lollapalooza, among others, are yet to come this spring and summer. So if you dig jammin’ out to badass tunes, camping for days on end with your best pals and soaking in the great outdoors, then you better get your wardrobes prepped for these fun-loving events! When dressing for such gatherings, it’s all about whimsical, free-spirited style. And of course, you’ll need plenty of sunnies in tow to protect your peepers and keep ‘em looking on trend. Check out our fave festival-worthy outfits, with matching sunwear, for babes and bros below!

Lasses are sure to look the part in a tribal-inspired crop top with high-waisted, lace-embellished denim shorts. Comfy, yet chic, strappy sandals, an earthy crossbody bag, a geometric necklace and a metallic feather hair piece put the finishing touches on this look. Paired with oversized turquoise round Face à Face shades or chunky mod white Derek Lam demure cat-eyes, this ensemble is simply spexy!

Meanwhile, dudes will definitely be obsessed with a striped tank and subtly zigzag-patterned shorts—after all, they’re masculine and low-key for studly, no-fuss men everywhere. Play up this ensemble with a woven fedora, layered and colorful leather bracelets, printed sneaks and a handy knapsack, not to mention Clubmaster-inspired SPY sunglasses or mint green Original Penguin frames.
