Festival season is upon us and by now we’re pretty sure you’ve got your festival outfit sorted. (Read up on our What to Wear to a Festival post if you’re a little late to the game.) If you’re in need of those finishing touches to achieve headline status, we’ve edited our best of festival accessories for 2022. Sunnies, purses, statement headwear – you name it, we’ve got it.
Not only a total necessity when it comes to dancing in the desert, festival sunglasses can transform a sweet summer look into a showstopper festival outfit. When it comes to sunnies – size matters, as does the shape and color. Reduce that midday glare while complementing (or clashing) your clothing combo – the wilder the better. But whether it’s try-and-miss-me neon rave glasses or stylish slim cat-eye sunnies, be sure to complete your look with statement eyewear.
Practical – yes, but this festival essential need be anything but boring. Forget the festival fanny packs of the past, our varied selection of festival bags covers endless style scenarios. From festival backpacks that carry all but the kitchen sink (yes we DO need to bring our coffee mug) to secure, mini cross body bags – festival approved for keys, phone, and maybe a little lip gloss. Consider whether carrying weight across your back, shoulder, or chest would be most comfortable for those long summer days, and pick your purse accordingly.
Ramp up your rave look with our pick of festival boots. Shoes should never hold you back, so pick a pair that will keep you from dropping like the beat and, instead, carry you through to the early hours. Our favorites for 2022? Embrace the western trend and style a stellar pair of cowboy boots. Loose on the leg and a low chunky heel, these festival booties will keep you comfortable while transforming a jean shorts outfit. If that’s not for you, opt for a statement-maker biker boot, or chunky white festival boots.
An opportunity to wear statement costume jewelry? We’re invested. Take oversized diamante lightning bolt festival earrings for example – a guaranteed crowd-pleaser look. Or, style an astrological-themed layered festival necklace and let the stars decide on your music agenda. For a different take on rave jewelry opt for a link chain festival belt that can be layered over slips, shorts, or jumpsuits. Run with it – nothing’s off limits with this one.
And finally – headwear. More specifically festival hats, that do more than shade your crown from the rays, they dial up the heat on your outfit too. Following on from the western trend, this summer it’s all about the cowboy hat. Play with brash animal prints, diamante detailing, and fringe across the brim. Or, switch it up and opt for a bohemian alternative to a rave hat with a silky satin scarf in a classic bandana print. Pairs perfectly with those statement earrings… and boots…and sunnies. Subtle isn’t what we’re known for.
